Beach Weather – easel cards

The sun is shining. The skies are blue and the light breeze draws us closer to the beauty of lakes and oceans. Whether it’s lakeside with a gentle breeze or the sound and smell of the salty ocean, water does bring smiles to our faces. I hope that the sound of water brings good memories to all of you. I am Ava Gavloski and I do believe that making easel cards for someone close to you is always warming to the heart.

Making an easel card is a wonderful boost when creating cards. Visit You Tube and search for Easel Cards to get a wide range of designs and the details on making the easel card base. I find it very addictive creating cards like this one.
