Taco 'bout awsome - International blog highlight

Thanks for coming to my blog today! We are being highlighted internationally by Kylie Bertucci and you are able to VOTE for my project. The top ten winners will get to be part of an international blog hop so please vote for my project. You can do that here. Our theme for this highlight is encouragement - we all need a kind word said to us to build us up at times. Everyone needs to be told how awesome they are every so often.

When I saw this cute stamp set called Tasty Trucks I thought it would be perfect for this blog highlight. I have made this card with all of my loyal followers in mind. Let's taco 'bout how awesome you are! I really appreciate every one of you. Every time someone subscribes, clicks on a post and takes the time to comment means so much to me. I know that everyone is busy so I really appreciate people taking the time to read my posts and leave comments. It encourages me to keep creating and blogging. For all of you I am truly grateful.

This is a fun fold called a twisted easel card. It starts off flat...........

.......then props open for display. You make it in a similar way to a standard easel card except you fold the front panel diagonally. When you adhere the elements to the front, you just have to make sure that you only stick them to the bottom section.

I've used some new products on this card from the new Occasions Catalogue that you will be able to order from on January 4th. The new watercolour pencils that I have used to colour the van are fabulous and you will definitely 'need' to get some. And as an added bonus you can get this stamp set for free from January 4 if you spend over $90. Just like a belated Christmas present!

Thanks for visiting my blog today. I'd love it if you headed over to Kylie's blog to vote for my project. I would love to be chosen to do another international blog hop. Thanks again to you all for taking the time to read this post. You make it worth while and you are awesome!

PS Thank you to everyone who voted for me. I was lucky enough to be chosen in the top 10.
