I saw this cute easel note box on the January Control Freak's blog hop and just had to try making one.  It was so easy and didn't take long at all to put it together.  Lee Ann Greff has posted a video tutorial on her blog if you want to make one, too!

Long time no post.  In October I decided to have new carpet installed in my studio so had to move everything out.  While the room was empty I thought it was a perfect time to paint the walls and ceiling, get a new light fixture, etc.  By the time it was finished and I had moved back in, Thanksgiving was only a few days away.  So, with the holidays and the start of a new semester, I'm just now finding time to post.
This is maybe the quickest card I've ever made.  I love this stamp set!  It is funny and cute and has so many uses.  Get it free, like I did, with a $50 order during Sale-a-bration!
Stamps: Hey Chick, Chicken wire background stamp (retired)
Paper: Basic Black, Crumb Cake, Whisper White
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Basic Gray, Real Red
Accessories: Layering Ovals Framelits, SU Watercolor Pencils, blender pen
