Relax... it's the weekend.

Are you relaxing today?   I hope so.
I am in a cooking mood, after seeing the goodies at Cherry's blog.
So I am planning a tea of 
*Smoked slamon with creme fraiche and horseradish*
*Duck with blackberries and roast veg*
*Snowflake layer cake*
The diet can wait 'til**

But first I want to show you this Kickstand card.
It's the first time I have made one of these,
but I thought it would be perfect to show off the delicious Websters papers.
You cannot believe how hard it was for me to cut into these.

The technique is easy - just trim away the bottom of your card front,
and attach your extra piece of card, making it level with the bottom edge of the back piece.
The beauty of this card is that you can play around with the size and shapes.

It's hard to get a good photo the card when it's open...
but I'm sure you can get the idea.

I would like to enter this card for a couple of challenges..
Aud Sentiments, where the theme is 'Relax...'
and Secret Crafter, where the theme is 'It's a Man's World'.

Stamp - LOTV little boy relaxing, coloured with Copics
DP - Webster's Pages, Seaside, Garden & Nature.
Sentiment made on my computer.

MMMMM can I come to tea Caroline? Can we have piccies too - nothing like virtual calories!

That is one awesome card too and I can see why you had to steal yourself to cut. But it is a triump and well worth using those papers. I want to make one now.

Have fun relaxing and eating. Thanks for your kind words and link too. Hugs Cherry XXX

I just love this card - I also think your blog is cool because you focus on the image and not the 63 flowers and 32 flourishes!!!1

Think the paper and the image work wonderfully together

Thanks for joining in the fun at Aud Sentiments
