My First Easel Card and an Award!

Hello, hope everyone is good on this lovely Tuesday morning! Well, there's no wind or rain so that's good anyway.
I have been busy lately making and sending out my Christmas cards and yesterday I posted this one and realised I hadn't uploaded it onto my blog or my DC gallery. It's the first (and only so far) Easel card I've made and I really enjoyed making it and will definitely be doing more of them
They are so easy to make and I think they look great.
The image is 'Royal Mail' by Penny Black, coloured with Promarkers.
Papers are DCWV Christmas Multi Stack and Papermania Deck the Halls.
Woodware craft punch for the stars and buttons from stash.
I have also been given this award by Georgia this week, so big thanks to you Georgia. It means a lot to get awards, but I have only just started blogging again after a difficult few months, so this one is special.
I have to write 7 interesting facts about myself, so here goes:
1. I recently climbed Mount Snowdon with my hubby Kevin. It was the hardest thing I have ever done, but so worth it as we raised £630.00 for charity in memory of my Dad.
2. I'm a crispoholic. I have to eat them every day and I like most flavours - except Prawn cocktail.
3. I would love the chance to cuddle a Silverback Gorilla. I just love them.
4. There is only one man I would leave my hubby for if he came to whisk me away and that's John Travolta. Don't think there's much chance of that happening tho! lol
5. I once went for a helicopter ride and hated every minute of it. I don't know why I did it really, because I hate flying, but at least I can say I've done it.
6. I love to craft with my God daughter Demi, who is nearly 3. She has her own little craft box at 'Shell's house' which is mainly full of stickers and she loves to sit at my craft desk and make cards with me.
7. And lastly, I nearly died when I was about 3 after taking nearly a whole bottle of Junior Aspirin, whilst staying with my aunt. They tasted of Orange sherbert and I thought they were lovely, I even shared them with my baby cousin! I had to have my stomach pumped and my aunt says if I had put the lid back on the bottle she would never have known I'd taken them and I may not be here now.
I hope they are ok and you now know a bit about me.
I now have to choose 5 other bloggers to give this award to and I have chosen
Christine, Nicola (coops) Sue, Gina and Carol
Off to let them all know now.
Take care
Michele xxxx
