When is an Easel not an Easel ???

A new little character enters the crafting world today, her name is Angelica and she has lots of fairy friends. Sara Davies will be launching a 4 Day Deal on Create and Craft and to celebrate Crafters Companion are holding a Blog Hop with a prize of ALL NINE stamp sets in the release.
 
All you have to do is leave a comment as you hop around then ONE random commenter on ONE UK team member's blog will win. (it's a prize worth over £35)
You have until Wednesday 6th Feb to leave a comment, winners will be announced on the CC UK blog Thursday 7th February; 

There is a CD as well as the stamps and 2 card kits. A Luxury Card Kit and an Easel Card Kit.
 
 
They are very easy to assemble and make a lovely quick card.
I thought I would see what else I could create instead of an easel card, so in answer to the question "When is an Easel not an Easel ?"
The answer could be......
When it's a GATEFOLD CARD
 
 
or when it's a DL card






or it could be a foldback apeture card.

 
but then again with a bit of extra card they make lovely wrap around tent cards.

 
Sandwich two together for a totally different look

 
Then again with a bit more time and some bits from your crafty stash you could create an apeture window with shutters.
 
 
 
 SO THE ANSWER TO THE QUESTION IS WHEN YOU GET CRAFTY !!!!!
 
Below are all the Design Team members who are taking part in the Blog Hop here and in the USA, if you started at the beginning Christiana Reuling is next.
 
So leave a comment as you go.Good Luck and enjoy the shows.
 
Luv Margaret
