Week 2 ~ Easel Card

Hi all, thanks for visiting City Crafter Challenge Blog again.
Thanks to everyone who took part last week, we had an amazing week looking at your creations.
Now, are you ready for another challenge?

Here's our hostess for week # 2 - Linda.

Linda: Hello I am Linda and I am hosting this week's challenge! This week challenge is going to be an Easel Card! I have never done one before and wanted to try something new! So come join us in making an easel card. You can use any theme or color you want as long as it is an easel card!

Guest Designer
I am pleased to introduce our week # 2 Guest Designer that will play along with us.
If you love colors and enjoy color challenges, you will love our GD Arielle Gordon.
Arielle is known for her color challenge blog http://www.colourq.blogspot.com/
You'll find awesome color challenge weekly at Colourq

Arielle:I'm Arielle Gordon and I live in Alabama with my hubby of 3 years, Jeff. We have 2 children, Alex who'll be 2 in June and Maisie Grace who is 3 1/2 months. Obviously I stamp when I can - usually late into the night while everyone sleeps! I started stamping a few years ago, although I've always 'done' art! I went to college on both an art & music scholarship, and I have a degree in graphic design. When I'm not busy crafting, you can usually find me in the kitchen... I cook a lot of ethnic foods, and even though I live in the South, you'd never catch me frying anything - lol! I feel really blessed to share such an awesome hobby with so many talented people; I live for challenges each week, not only to push my own creative boundaries, but to also gather inspiration from everyone else! Happy stamping!

Wow! Is this card a stunner!
Thanks Arielle, for taking your precious time out and be our Guest Designer this week!
Do pop over to Arielle's personal blog Snappy Stamper for more of her gorgeous creations
