Double Easel

Otober's turning into a bit of a birthday month here on the Craft Life blog.  It's By The Cute And Girly's 3rd Birthday and we have a blog hop going on this month with loads of prizes to be won.  If you haven't entered you can read all about it on my post here.

What do you do when you want to make a quick card that's big and spectacular to celebrate the 1st birthday of twin boys, but you have no stamped images prepared?

A double easel card featuring Penny Black Stickeroos!

I've used First Edition Birdsong papers and a selection of American Crafts letters and chipboard for the decorations (including the boys names that I have blanked out at the top.)  The big flat backed pearls are from an ancient QVC Christmas kit.

I had a beautiful day out at the beach on Saturday as a belated birthday treat (photos still need editing, sorry).  You wouldn't have believed it was October and in fact the sun was so bright I couldn't even attempt the photos I had planned!  All this birthday gallivanting at the weekend means I've hardly been here and there are more cards needing to be made, so I had better get on.
