Fancy Folds

Hello everyone I hope you had a good weekend and enjoyed some sunshine. Anyway, Monday again but fear not this is a good one as we have a new challenge at


This month we are challenging you to let loose and make a card using  Fancy Folds!!

I took a traditional approach here and made an easel card



We were able to choose images from Meljen's Designs who together with Stamp and Create are sponsoring this challenge. I just couldn't resist this totally cute  Little baby dragon who got the SN alcohol pen treatment (for a change). The papers were a fabulous magazine freebie from LOTV.


The sentiment was typed using Blackjack font and reads
"Thrilled to hear you wonderful news!!"
 which I thought could either be for a pregnancy announcement or indeed for the arrival. 









Don't forget you have three weeks in which to enter our challenges now, so plenty of time to dig out your cutest images (rubber, digi, even coloured or decoupage, we don't mind) and come and play.

Some challenges to enter

Alphabet Challenge - B for beautiful babies

OMG, Sarah I have just received my parcel this morning! Aaaaaaah! Have to admit that I was so overwhelmed I did shed a tear! (I was only joking when I said …”put it in the post to me immediately”!) So unbelievably kind of you and so thoughtful! It absolutely made my day if not my week! He is the even cuter in real life and I have named him Jeremy! (Don’t ask!) The accompanying card was beautiful too! Thank you so very much, my friend! xxx and an extra xxx too!
Oh and your Cutie card is, as always, an absolutely beaut! Loving that adorable dragon! xxx

This cutie is a real darling...he made me smile hugely. Love the colors & patterns you selected for his cute self, because it would work with either gender. Simply one of your adorable cards, Miz Sarah. (No, not surprised at your movie/book choices. I love both of them too. Think I read B.Beauty in 1st grade or before, and have read it as an adult too. I still sniffle in places. Do you have a black horse? And if so, how did you not give him such a revered name? My DD always loved that book as well, and still has her childhood copy.)
