Rockin' Around

Have you seen this stamp yet? Wondering where it's from? Belles n' Whistles of course! This is called Rockin' Around and it's just one of several stamps that are apart of the first Christmas Collection. If you think this is cute, you're right! But... there's more cuteness in the rest of the release. I decided to create an easel card, it's my first one and I really thought it was going to be hard to create just looking at it but it's the easiest thing ever!
Here is a side view of the card. I made my card a 5x5. So my dimensions for the base of the card was 5"x10" then I scored it at 2.5" then 5". I then cut a separate piece of cardstock at 5x5. That piece is for the front of the card.
Here is what the card looks like from the front while it's opened. If you've never tried making one you should! They are fun!

Look who I found browsing the web yesterday? Yup, this is Sophie my 11 month old Silky Terrier.
I asked her "what are you doing" she turned and I snapped this photo of her! Doesn't she look like she just got caught doing something bad? lol. I just had to share this photo with you!
Hey Kyoko, Sophie says hi!
Have a wonderful Friday! The weekend is here everyone!
