Like A Child

Good Morning Everybody!  I hope everyone had a fabulous Thanksgiving, and enjoying the last of the weekend.  It's been a really busy week for me, as we had two families to celebrate Thanksgiving with.  In addition, I've just been running crazy with sick animals (praying and hoping all is well now), dental appts. w/ hubby, Dr.s' w/ Mom, and then there's the grooming.  Needless to say, I'm tickled to finally get to post my next card, and spend some time visiting my onlilne friends.

Napkin Fold Card
Like A Child

Still being so new to card crafting/designing, every card is a learning experience, and although I had to create this card twice, it still was a lot of the

I first seen the "Napkin Fold Card" on my good friend Wendy's blog, and you can go here to see her tutorials.  Thank you Wendy for sharing your knowledge.  The image by Mo Manning (called Urchin with Bird) - is colored with ProMarkers, and I just love the kindness Mo brings out in this adorable little girl's eyes.

Other art mediums used:

Papers by; Scrappin with Lil Ole Me - Christmas Overlays, Scrap N Sassy Designs - Pastel Frosting, dark blue, and white (distressed with Jim Holtz/Faded Jeans) Card Stock - Colorbok

Snowflakes and trim; "Starburst" punch by McGill, and Eyelet Lace border and corner punch is by Martha Stewart.  The glitter I used on the snowflakes came from my local thrift store - no idea the name.

Snowflake stick pin - I made with pearls, jewerly wire, and the center piece (believe it or not) is a bead cap that I flattened out - all from my mom's mine...snicker.

Ribbon - Blue "Let it Snow" from the dollar store (I love that place!), and the white from my stash.

Sentiment created in Paint Shop Pro

You left such a lovely comment on my blog that I thought I would drop by and check yours out. I think it's so cool that you are the lady responsible for the image I used on my last card. He is such a hoot and I'm sorry to learn that you closed your shop. This image is very prettily coloured and your card is very beautifully folded. I rarely make unusual folds because I find them quite hard to do. I took a sneaky peak at your recent creations and they are all very pretty. I especially like your dappled horse. Keep up the card crafting. It's a lovely community and will help to fulfil your obviously artistic nature! Hugs, Lesley

Wendy said...
