A Little Twisted and a bit slack

I have been a bit slack with my blogging the last few weeks, but I did have a good excuse, I had family visiting from Sydney, two of my sisters and a niece, we had such a fabulous time catching up, one Saturday evening we all stayed the night at my Sister's in Orewa and had a girls night in watching the three Twilight Movies eating a fabulous dinner and drinking Midori's. (I went to Breaking Dawn last night). This was the first time in 5 1/2 years that five out of seven of us were together.
Needless to say I forgot to blog the Twisted Easel card I demonstrated at our Christmas themed WOW paperKRafters team event at the end of last month. I used one of my  favourite old fashioned stamp sets Winter Post. This card was based on a card my upline karen received from another Demo.
