An easel post it holder

Good evening! Hope you're all enjoying the gorgeous weather we're having! I've been in a right muddle this week with seeing my eldest DD off to Crete and dealing with my youngest DD who's 2 in a weeks time and her antics, you really DONT want to know!!

I've been literally drained this week with her and asked Teresa for the week off as I wasnt feeling too creative and been run off my ickle legs, of course she said yes being Teresa but today it was really nice out, the kids found some old toys I'd stashed so they were like 'new' to them and were having a ball so I managed to come up with this :D

Its an easel card combined with a post it note holder so it will last a long time for the recipient as the post it part is easily replaceable. I used the sketch from Sweet Pea Stampers and have used the image "It's my Birthday" by sweet pea stamps available at Crafts & Me (They also have some fab new stamp plates in this week and some very exciting news Photobucket so go have a looksie!)

BTW if you didn't know they also have a blog for the shop where all the DT post once a week plus we have customer creations days where you can submit your designs, have a look at it here as you might miss some fantastic designs & inspirations!

Image is coloured with promarkers with glamour dust on the wings, sakura stardust pens and stickles on the flowers. Its had a spray or three of pearl glimmer mist and added lots of sticky gems - there I feel better after my mans card hehe!
The post it holder opens up and can be replaced when you've run out :)
Cute little text stamps are by Stamping all Day, papers DCWV and not sure about the stripy one as Helen gave it me! Flowers are Wild Orchid (top ones altered with a promarker)
