Phridays are Phindys - our Challenge - Fancy Folds!

Hi there....I'm back!
exhausted - but back to work today...busy weekend and much to catch up on (groceries, laundry, a nephew's graduation from ITT and YES, there will be some cardmaking time in there somewhere...my mojo is starvin and I've so missed my cyber friends!)

Over at Phindy's - the challenge this week is "Fancy folds (anything other than a plain card!)"
OK - totally out of my comfort zone and with very limited supplies...here is my "pull card" instead of a standard folded card

This is the front flat view

this is the view when the little candy cane is pulled out - pops up the image and reveals the sentiment underneath
 you can see how this is assembled from this side view
the candy cane is a brad - thought it was different from using a ribbon...dp is from Cosmo and SU, cardstock is GKD's Rocket Red and SU's Glorious Green. Sentiment is from Penny Black

this adorable image is from Phindy's Christmas Cuties Collection called "Peppermint Perfection" .

The winner of the Challenge will be chosen by Random.org and will receive an $8 Gift Certificate to the Phindy's Place store. The Pick of the Week wins a 20% off voucher for the Phindy's Place store. Don't forget that once a month we will choose an overall winner from the weekly winners and they will be offered a Guest position on the DT - and of course a free image from Phindy's Place to use for that week's challenge!

Hope you get a chance to pop over to the Challenge Blog and check out the DT's cards. You will be amazed at the gorgeous and creative folds they used...

TGIF !!
thanking the Lord for our safe travels this past week (-:
