My Besties Halloween Post It Easel Card

Here is an early wish for you all for a HAPPY HAUNTING HALLOWEEN.  I've had this digi colored for awhile and thought I'd best be doing something with her before the spooky day passes.  I am totally in love with the Sherri Baldy My Besties collection.  The whimsical, big eyed images call me on a daily basis to check in and see what's new.  I've managed to collect quite a few of these adorable images and plan to get them all colored up for my Christmas cards, which is going to consist of most of my future post for awhile.  I'm getting my need and urge to craft back now that I am feeling better.  Little out of my element here as I used more stickers than I normally do, but I think it still turned out cute.

I've used the "Sticky Note" tutorial  by Eulanda Silvey at Cards, Cards, and More Cards.  I love this style and it's so easy to make.  If you don't have the tutorial you can get it HERE.

I used My Besties IMG 913 Digi, colored with Copics..  Isn't she just adorable.  DP is Bo Bunny and Authentique. Flower was made months ago using tissue paper ad the embellishments are stickers.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll see you again soon.
"Love & Hugs" Carol (Granny)
