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.

Hi friends, just popping in to show you
another card I made for this week's 'LIM'
The recipe is 'Down Under' , couldn't resist
using another upside down image. I think
he is looking 'down under' anyway ;)

ps. Sad news.... our daughter is having to
 say her goodbyes to  her lovely old horse
Indi (he is 30).
 Happier news, she has bought  another one
......... a Clydesdale who is only 1,
so a baby really. OH is happy as she
is also naming him using my OH's
middle name (McKelvie) !
Company for her other horse Harry,
hope they get on well. Pic of her
new (baby) below card. He will grow 
very tall it seems, but has a lovely
 gentle nature  ;)

Baby, upside down,LIM, CAS
