Happy Friday Everyone...

Friday is here again....hope you all have a great weekend! We were supposed to get storms and rain this week...NOT...still no rain. I hate thinking what it's going to do to prices this fall and winter, not a pretty site. I've never seen anything like it, ever! The farmers crops are done for, nothing can grow in weather like this. It has been so hot day and night. We get a warm, warm breeze at night, but it's still hot!!! When it's still 95 degrees at midnight, that's not cool!!!
On another note....I have several new images and it's going to take me a month of Sunday's to get them all onto a card...but I'm so happy ... I had to order some stick and spray, I think that's what it's called yesterday so I can ink up my unmounted images. So I have to wait till that comes to get started on those. Can hardly wait :O)
Hubby is at wound care getting his HBO treatment and my lazy self is sitting here needing to get in the shower and get my day started...and it's after noon, but me I'm on 2nd-3rd shift...not by choice, just can never sleep.
Waiting for my daughter to call, but I may just have to call her back, want to get going here.....
I so love blogging and seeing everyone's wonderful talent. I'm in awe of so many of you so very talented folks out there. I try to leave comments and keep up, but sometimes there are just not enough hours in the day.
Anywho, hope you all have a great weekend ..... Hugs! Leah Ann

Saturated Canary's Scratch Hubby's Birthday Card

 Saturated Canary's Scratch
Hubby's birthday is tomorrow, so I had to make this today while he is gone because he is nozey! :)
I was asked where I got my embellishments...the feathers are from Michael's Arts & Crafts.
The fence is Magnolia Doo Hickey Die, Charm & Rhinestones are from JoAnn's I believe. Twine from good ole' Walmart :O) Flower is Wild Orchid Crafts and the paper I believe I got at JoAnn's, Michaels or Archivers...not sure on that! Happy Birthday is Stampin Up and the other two stamps, I've had for ages and I don't have a clue where I got them.
I gave hubby his card and he loves it!!! Mission Accomplished :O)

Sorry it's not very clear. I have a glare on it....probably the time of the day....but I don't want him to see it, so this will have to do!

A little this and a little that!

I been playing catch up. Wow miss one day of blogging and your out of the loop :O) Hubby had a stint put in his leg so hoping that the blockage is fixed and it will stay that way! He's at wound care, so I've been cleaning house a bit, and just got through doing a blog hop. It poured rain at the hospital as I was going out to the car a big huge bolt of lightning scared the fire right out of me...and I got soaked but I got hubby and got him home. Of course where we live, we got very little rain. Seems all around us they get rain and we don't. It's a bit cloudy today, but jeez doesn't mean anything anymore it seems. It will cloud up, thunder and nothing. I guess when we do get it, we will get it good! I have several new images so I'm hoping to get them printed and colored. While hubby was having his surgery our friends 16 yr. old son was life lined to the hospital. He had rolled his truck 3 or 4 times, totaled the truck, but he's o.k. Wow! what a lucky fellow he was and I sure hope he realizes how lucky he is. The man upstairs sure had his hand on him! Well I guess that's about it....hope everyone has a safe, happy weekend! Hugs!

Tutorial for 5" Easel Card, my first tutorial so please be kind :O)

 Tutorial for 5" Easel Card.
 I first cut a piece of (Tag board or Stampin Up Cardstock) 5" x 10". I find these are the best to use because they are heavier and work real well for Easel Cards.
I score it at 5" and 7 1/2".  This is piece one.

O.k. Miss Sandy, this tutorial is for you ... so let me know if I've confused you more or helped :O)
 Fold the 10" x 5" (piece one) cardstock in half at 5" scoreline.
At this point it just looks like a regular card fold.

 Then fold back at 7 1/2" score line  Piece one.
(Look at the very 1st photo and you will see the scorelines)

 Then I cut a piece of tag board or cardstock 5" x 5" which I'll call piece 2.

 Here you see how the side will look after cutting the 2 pieces. I haven't glued it yet, so the 5" x 5" piece will actually be glued between the 5" score line and the 7 1/2" score line.
(The 10 x 5" piece is folded in half at 5" score line, then folded back at the 7" score line and the piece that you fold back is the piece you glue and adhere the top of the 5" piece on.)
Oh Drat's I'm probably just confusing you :O)

 Shown here where to glue....
I have my arrows at top and side, but I glue all 4 sides and some in the middle.
 5" x 5" cardstock (piece two)...that I decorated onto the part that is folded back (piece one) and it's easier to glue this and then place the 5" (piece 2) piece on, otherwise you don't know exactly where to glue it. I used Tombo Multi Adhesive Glue because it is my favorite adhesive, and I find the best. Remember this is folded back.

 The bottom which I call the base. I usually cut a piece of cardstock 4 3/4 x 4 3/4" for my first layer and it will cover the white on the bottom except for the edges. Then I cut the black piece 2 1/4 x 4 1/2". Then the next piece 2" x 4 1/4". You can go more than 2 1/4 but I never go more than 3" because then the card doesn't want to sit correctly.
 Here is the 5" x 5" piece of cardstock that I have started decorating but haven't finished just to show you.

Here is a finished Easel card. I sure hope this isn't too confusing. It is so simple, but sometimes the instructions make things look hard! If you have any questions just send me an email to lgast24 at gmail dot com
