The Crew at Shopping Our Stash wants you to play Hide and Seek for challenge # 184. We want to you to put a hidden element on or in your card or use a picture of someone playing hide and seek. I went through a long list of ideas for my Hide and Seek card and finally decided on one, you will have to scroll down to see what I’m hiding in my card.

I used one of the stamps I found in my Christmas Stocking wow was I surprised when I saw them. I have a lot of Stamping Bella stamps but not any uptown girls. This one is Claudia has a Candy. I used my favourite colour Purple and lots of it.  This is for a friend that also has loves purple and dragonflies. The die cuts are spellbinders Labels 8 and Decorative labels 8.  And now for my hidden element………..

My card is hiding a note pad. It is an easel note pad holder and I found the easy to follow tutorial HERE. I hope that works it’s a video link. There is a space on the back to put a sentiment.

I love those uptown girls.
I knew before you shared who you got the tutorial from that it was probably from Schell, she made one of these for my Honey. She is a sweetie
