Good Morning and Happy Hump Day Everyone!!  I hope you are all doing well and enjoying your week!!  I am having some quality family time in upstate New York with my parents, brother and his family and my sister and her kids from Boston!!  It is so exciting to be together since as our kids get older, it is getting tougher and tougher to synchronize our schedules and meet.
Any who...Today I wanted to share an easel card I created using one of the Your Next Stamp images, Rainy Day Fiona.  I just had to paper piece this.

The polka dotted dp is actually material dp that I received my dear friend Crystal in a RAK she sent me.  I just love the color and how fun it was to work with.  The other dp is Basic Grey Eva.  The clouds in the background are from the Flying High Fiona stamp set.

I have had a few emails asking me to post a tutorial on how to make a circle easel card so I hope to do this next week.

Meljen's Designs: Easel Card

I hope you enjoyed my creation today.  I am challenging myself to think outside of the box and not only create square cards. Thanks for stopping by today!! Your comments are greatly appreciated.

Have a great day!!
