In the Fold


At DCM this week, it was Jane's turn to dare us all: 'I'm daring you to make a card that has to have more than one fold - so it can be a gate fold card, or a 3 panel card with an aperture or a card with multiple folds OR you can incorporate paper folding on the actual card itself. It can be on any theme "

Well it just so happens I was taught how to make rosettes this week, by using nine little squares of paper folded into a flower shape! This challenge could not have come at a more perfect time for me so thank you, Jane. I even found an Irish blessing about being enfolded in God's love.

I have decided it is about time I had a competition on my blog and that that this card can be the prize. Anyone who posts something about this card will go into a draw to receive said card. Posts must be made before the next DCM weekly challenge is posted on Friday to qualify!

Hey Susan

Love the teacbag folding & your choice of colours .


We're into the fourth day of Chinese New Year here - & too much festivities does take a toll on family - meaning invariably even during supposedly happy times family simply has a way of spoiling things. I just find that as I get older I have far less appreciation for certain things in life sad to say .

This is stunning. The colours & patterns are beautiful.
I did a tea bag fold & really enjoyed it, must look up more folds as there are many different ones. I think they are so effective.
