LOVE is in the air with a twisted easel post it note

Very excited today!
Today is my first DT post for The Crafty Pad and I would love you all to play along with us!

This weeks challenge is #107 - Love In In The Air!
Too easy! for you all with Valentines around the corner!
This week our sponsor is the beautiful Robyn Fetish.
You could be in the chance to win 5 of her gorgeous digital images.
(Now that's worth playing for! ! !)
She has some stunning didi stamps - 
Click on her name or badge to be see her FAB collection!

Today I have used Robyn Fetish - Love Birds
The Crafty Pad Sentiments -  For Someone Special - Circular & Daisy Chains of Summer Ticket
I think this image is adorable and tweet, and I have colored the image with my water color pencils.
I made a standard easel card with a slight twist and turned it into a Post-It Note holder for my best friend for a Valentines gift.  I have also added a tricky little magnet so when the gift is closed it is held shut so the notepads do not fall out when in the gift bag, and when it is opened the magnet(s) are hidden. Tricky! 
It was a good use and new life for my old fridge magnet calendars!

 Easel Standing 

 Side view

 Back view standing 
(I covered the whole back so when if someone was sitting it on a desk  it looks complete from behind as well and also for the presentation as a whole - I feel it completes the quality of the look)

 View open before standing the easel.
(See that flower and bow - That piece is attached to a magnet to hold it down and then you lift it up and close it on the magnet on the front that is hidden with paper so it all closes smoothly and the best part .... 
is it is all hidden.)

The back view.
The front view - closed.

I love the feathers on this piece - I can't help running my fingers over them as this sits on my desk waiting to go in the gift bag lol  As I made this with the intention of it being displayed I didn't want to write on the card so I have popped my personal greeting under the sentiments on the post-it note.  
I think this turned our stunningly well.

Now ... Its your turn to show me 
Love is in the air!
So hop to it & be sure to pop by 
The Crafty Pad- peak at all the  
DT's inspiring eye catching beauties!
And enter this week's challenge!   

Fair winds and following seas,
The Navy Wife
