I Love Easel Cards!

Two weeks ago I had never made an easel card and now I am in love! Today's challenge over at the Hambo Hoedown is to make an easel card! When you play along, you get a free digi each week you play! Check it out!

I made my card using Farm Chicken - digi and What's Up Chick? - 2704, both by Hambo Stamps. I used the easel directions by Beate Johns HERE. I colored my Farm Chicken with Copic markers. Here is what it looks like all the way open:
I love the little flower button (I only had one!) because it went so well with the paper design. Hope you will check out what the rest of the Bacon Bits made here.

And announcing my winner for the Jungle Digi from the April Fools' Day Blog Hop:
Congratulations to AllisonG! 
Your Jungle digi is on its way to you!
Thanks to everyone who hopped and commented.  Mark your calendars for May 20, when Hambo is sponsoring a Customer Blog Hop that you can play in too!
