It's A Twisted Quirky Challenge

Hope you've all set your clocks to the right time by now because the next Quirky Crafts Challenge, has started over on the Quirky Craft's Challenge Blog.
It's Diana's turn to set the challenge this time. Her first time and all her own work, so pop over and have a shifters! Unlike my posts there shouldn't be any smelling mistooks!
Now, this is going to be one fun cracker of a challenge! Are you up for it!?! Diane would like to see...
A Twisted Easel Card and/ or A Mother's Day Gift.
Don't forget we like to see all kinds of Craftiness, so that means Atc's, Tags, Altered Art, Scrapbook pages, etc!
This time round our sponsors are
Crafty Ribbons
The Stamping Boutique
So that means lovely prizes!! (yay!!) Buttons and digis! and of course a chance to be on the GDT with us Quirky lot! (or not!)
Here's mine... 'O...k??' I can here you say slowly...Where's that empty box from the last post? It's hidden, gone... Nah, it's still there, covered very carefully (but don't look too closely!) with Pink Petticoat Vintage Rose papers. I'm really into recycling at the moment! This is my very first Twisted Easel card! So if I can do it, you can do it!!
But if not, Here's a YouTube link. and here's another one.
I've used the Carousel horse from our sponsors, The Stamping Boutique coloured with Promakers and 3D-ed over another image of the horse, (so you can still see the fiddly bits) which I'd printed onto pale pink spotted Pink Petticoat Vintage Rose Papers. (A free paper pack come with Quick Card Made Easy last month) The card is actually fixed to the box with non-permanent snail glue, (tape runner) so should pull off easily. I've used Woodware punches, the swirls are my new Tim Holtz die-cut. (Yay!) I've only attached these at the front so they can be moved when the card closes. Everything else is from stash. My winning ribbons from Crafty Ribbons haven't come yet, otherwise I would've use them! (My Alice DT card won a prize!)
The little oval sentiment I did on the computer, is fixed to a tiny fold of card so it can lie flat when the card is folded down. The font is a freebie it's called Amazone BT, you might already have it as a given on your laptop, but if not you can download it HERE. And for loads of Free fonts go here (but you'll have to look up the name...start with the A's!)
Mothering Sunday, over here in England, isn't until April 3rd this year (May 8th USA) so there's plenty of time to have a go at the challenge!! There's loads on things you can come up with, just let your imagination take over!!
Oh yes, the Chocolate Brownies hubby made yesterday??!! They're inside of course!! (Well....not all of them!!)
