Hey Divas! It's been a good weekend and I can just feel that it is going to be an AWESOME week I'm claiming it right now in Jesus Name!! I was just sitting and watching some football with the crew and I decided since my team has a Bi-week ( GO COWBOYS) I might as well go see if I can get a card done. I had done an easel card before but I seen this "Twisted Easel" style card and wanted to give it a try! Say it w/ me guys "HOOKED" lol, I love this style card even better than the regular easel it is just so cool!

Off topic - I have a Crafty Pen Pals group we are just getting started on Facebook. It's not a RAK group, just a group of ladies who like to send and receive homemade cards in the mail. If you are interested in joining, friend me on facebook and I'll add you. If you are too busy or not interested, no hurt feelings here. You can find me on facebook at
