Hobbycutz Challenge 60 . . . . . . .Fancy Folds

Good morning my lovely blogging chums. Hope everyone is well.

This mornings creation is my Hobbycutz DT card for Challenge 60 which is fancy folds as chosen by Craftin' Suzie and sponsored by Iva Nova Chest.
Hope you can pop over and have a look at what my fellow teamies have come up with and why not have a go and enter the challenge.

Before I witter on, thank you so much to Pamellia for becoming my 50th follower. Pamellia hasn't been blogging long but creates some beautiful things, including a gorgeous bird house and her blog is here.

Wasn't sure which way to go with this challege so I decided to have a bit of fun with a spring card (I think that's what they are called as it bounces like its on a spring lol!!!) I haven't made one before so out came the Hougie book for destructions.
They are quite good little cards as they fold flat for posting (always a good thing in my book) May try some Christmas (there, I've said it!!!) cards in this style for a bit of fun.

Off to the GBCF at Stoneleigh today to spend lots of money (its inevitable so why fight it lol???) and meet up with Christine and John.

Well, that's me for today but I'll be back again tomorrow, different Bat Time but same Bat Channel. Hope you can pop by for a paddle again.
