STAMP SOMETHING FRIDAY CHALLENGE

Whoohoo!!! Here is it, Friday again!! And that means time for another Stamp Something Challenge which this week is being hosted by my fabulous DT sistah Becky aka The Lakeshore Stamper who is amazingly talented so if you have never stopped over at her blog, you are missin' out! Becky challenged us to use a Fancy Fold on our card so I went to my fave place for inspiration (splitcoast) and saw this really cool Spring Card - sorry, I have no idea who the originator of this idea is, but if you do, let me know and I will give them proper credit! So, I decided to try it and this is what I came up with! I used my new and yummy fall paper from the Holiday Mini called Autumn Vine along with my new stamp set Happy Blessings. (You can order these and all other products online from my demo website as well!) I like the idea behind this but I think it would work better with card stock instead of DP so I think next time I will try that - but overall, I am happy with it!!! You SHOULD go over at check out what the rest of the gals did though, they ROCKED this challenge - they are amazing, I am loving their creations! So head on over to Stamp Something and get inspired - then, try one for yourself and upload it to the post so we can all check it out!! Have a fabulous day everyone!
