Well - we got our rain today! It has been pouring since about 11 am. We really needed it as it had been so dry we were having a lot of brush fires in all the surrounding communities.
I took a vacation day today, unfortunately so that I could go to a funeral, please say a prayer for Christine who lost her battle with cancer last Thursday -
but I was also able to get to stamping earlier than usual!
What a fun Try a New Technique challenge today! A two way fold card. Briefly, you cut a square 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 as the base - then you add an 8 x 4 layer folded in half - that you cut the front off at an angle - then you add another layer inside 3 1/2 x 7 folded in half. You can see the instructions here. I added a belly band to hold it closed (some people added a ribbon). The belly band is 11" x 1" and scored at 3 3/8" and 8" - overlapped and closed with adhesive. I added circles to the band to dress it up a bit.
I used PapertreyInk pink papers - I just love the colors and patterns on these.
Thought for today from Poor Richard's Almanac: "A house without woman and firelight, is like a body without soul or sprite."
