Told ya so...

My stamp club pals laugh at me because I often don't finish my project during the club night. I usually want to size it for a photo or add something I have at home...or (let's be honest) I just talk too much and don't finish in time!

So tonight I swore I'd take this one home and complete it. And I did. And I even added extras to it (ribbon, stickles, scalloped trim border.) It's an "easel" card, which helps when you fill the treat cup with some goodies (which often makes it tip over!)
I also left the top of the green layer "un-stuck", so I can fill the cup just before Easter. The thought of jellybeans sitting in there for two months grosses me out. I'd rather use the nice airtight bag (in which they've been sitting for a couple years - they're still good!)

Anyhoo, I'm tired, so I'll give an abbreviated recipe. All supplies SU except the ribbon (Offray) and Stickles (Ranger.)

Here's another view, where you can see the easel part better:
I've got an Olympics shift tomorrow (and Sunday), but I hope to get back in the crafts room tomorrow night. I just put away my big SU order!!!

I am so proud of you!! You finished a stamp club project....I was beginning to take it personally, like you don't like my projects!

Very a pic when it has jelly beans in it!

Yay for you! I like the alterations you made to it. Haven't even looked at my stuff yet. I'll try to add a new post to my blog this week.
