great challenge. It's my all time favourite
 one of course as you may just have noticed

 to come. Also thank you so much for
 choosing to showcase my card this week too,
 so honoured.

Right onto my card, the challenge this week
is a colour one and .....................

One of my favourite challenges I must say!
I went with balloons....5 of them to celebrate
LIM's 5th birthday ;) I used smooth white card,
vellum & fancy bobbly net to make the

 interest. I stamped a sentiment and added a few
gems and job done.

 you have planned. I have a horrid cold, a
swollen wrist and not feeling that great
  Arthritis wise (always my worst month)

Pleated Skirt fold card

Good afternoon my lovelies, I hope your
Thursday is going well. I am just popping
by to show you a card I made yesterday.
I decided to go for something different this 
time, so fancy fold it is ! It's called a
'Pleated Skirt fold', new to me anyway.
You are supposed to use double sided paper,
.......well I haven't got any so I improvised.
I used some lilac card I had printed out
a while ago. It has a slight may
be a PP one?

Then I found this pretty flower paper I
had printed out ages ago. I am fairly
 certain it's one I made myself a long
time ago.
I made so many at one time but seem to
 have no time to make them now. Besides
I rarely use papers as I mostly make
CAS cards as you have probably
 noticed lol.

Anyway I made the fold, added a bit of 
stamping and a sentiment using a die, to the
card base. A bit of pretty matching ribbon,
a few gems and job done !

If you want to see the tutorial for the fold,
see HERE . Add it to their gallery too
 if you make a card. Have a good evening, the
weekend is just around the corner  :)

Good afternoon friends, brrr it's a chilly one
here today! I have another 'LIM' card to
share again, my final one for this week.
I think I went beyond the call of duty this
 time!!! I found this free colouring pages
digi and made it into a png. image.
Ahem ....yes it IS another upside down 
one lol. I then found a map of Australia
...well an outline, and made that into a
 png. image too.
I turned the map upside down, added
a sentiment 'Guide to Down Under'
and shrunk it down & then added that
 to the 'book'  front on the first image.
Are you still with me?? I then coloured
 the images and cut it out with my fav.
 wonky  'stitches' border. I mounted that 
onto a card base and job done.......and
 relax ;)
Talk about making a card fit a challenge
lol !!!! ....right I am off for some lunch
 now. Well a cup-a-soup and a few dry oat 
cakes as it's a 'fast' day today ;)
Enjoy your day everyone and thanks for
your visit ! 
ps. I feel a fancy fold card coming on so 
watch this space.
