Can you keep a secret?

Ok girls, (and yes I'm talking to you, the girls in my sister's office. Yep, I know you visit me so Shhhhh don't tell my sister, my much older sister that is, hee-hee). I hear she's been a bit under the weather since her vacation (guess that teaches her to go on vacation next time, ...yeah right!). So I'm mailing her a little pick me up. Actually it's just a card, but it's the thought that counts, right?  Well it's not just a card, it's a post-it easel card! I think this was my first one I ever did (my mind is really not with me tonight so I can't remember if it is or not...oh well). I'm using my first Bildmalarna image! I have to say, when they first came out, I wasn't much of a fan, but I have really grown to love them. They are just so precious! Anyhoo, this image is called "On a Walk".  I of course colored her with my Copics and added some Wild Orchid flowers and lace (oh my, this is just to die for!!).  Also, used paper and grosgrain ribbon from Papertrey Ink (of course),  and a Magnolia die cut dragonfly! I do have to say I am pleased with the way this card turned out, what do you think?

Paula you are absolutely right. Your card is not "just" a card - it is a work of art and a keepsake. I know your sister is thrilled with this gift. This is one splendid idea with the post it notes - I love it!! Your image is so sweet, no wonder you love it! I am just gonna have to copy this idea. Makes a great gift.
