Mo's dp 2 challenge dt

As you can see, i am a whole day late with my posting for the wonderful Mo's challenge which is to make an easel this week.  As you know by now i live in Africa, we have copper thieves and Nigerians that steal your telephone and ADSL lines rugularly and this week it was my line.  I could just cry, i hate not being online.
To top it all off, i am without a maid AGAIN!!   i know most of you are thinking, a maid!! yes it is normal to have a maid in Africa, if you dont have a maid you are not normal.  OK so no maid, no internet = very unhappy Paola.

So for my card, i had to try this double easel, which i first saw on my Friend Barb's blog and i couldnt wait to try it myself.
For my card i am using "Patience" available from Mo's store, image colored with copics and the dp's are all locally South African from "Queen of hearts"  On my dotted paper i gave the edges some top boss and added white embossing powder.  The flower were punched out with a NS punch and added a rhinestone flower centre, the border punch is a MS punch and all the ribbons are from my stash.

have a great weekend


  1. Hey sweetie!
    So sorry for your inconviences; I guess it is very difficult without a maid once you have been accustomed to one; it must be the way I felt when I no longer had Mum Hope you will be able to sort out soon all these issues.
    Your double easel card is gorgeous, simply gorgeous! The colors are great although I would have never thought putting them together, the image, your coloring, everything rocks!
    Great to have you back even a day later:)
    Hugs and have a happy weekend!
