Sharing a great idea!

I'm not so sure this card is all that great on the front, but just wait until you see what's on the inside!! The only thing I will tell you sure of the size of the three flaps before you glue them down. Luckily, I discovered that the middle one was just a BIT TOO WIDE, and could trim it. I had already stuck down the other two flaps, so it worked out okay.

I just had to share this with you because I thought this card was such fun, and easy to boot!!

Here is the blog where there are directions for this card,, and lots of other really neat creations. I found this blog sorta by mistake, and am I ever glad I did.

I changed the papers, and the front, but of course I had to keep the RED.......Gee! I don't know why!!!! I thought this was a wonderful idea, and I'll be making more of these for Christmas. The front may change, but I really love the snowman inside with the snowflakes.

I hope you will check out her blog.....her name is Patti, and she has a LOT of fab things.

...and the Leaves Came Down

What a fun challenge today.......we were to make a card showing our weather, and 2/2/2. We are having a cloudy windy day, and this new Inkadinkado stamp was just perfect. I used my cloud template (thanks Mothermark!), and added a couple of extra leaves. For the twos, 2 ribbons, 2 swirls, 2 popped leaves, and 2 colors of layered cardstock.

The leaves really are coming down fast. All I could think of, looking out the window, was ..."and the rain, rain, rain came down, down, down". You know, from Winnie the Pooh. In this case, it's not rain, but leaves. DH took care of them two days ago, and it looks like they were never touched! Guess how happy that makes him!!!!!!!!!!

I hope you are having nice weather where you are. Boy, the TX-CO area is really getting socked! I'm so glad I live HERE. Have a great day, wherever you are!
