CCEE1934, Fancy Folds

Anne carries on as hostess this week.  Today's challenge is to make a fancy fold card.  Use whatever fancy fold you fancy!

Above is a fancy box I created to hold my fancy cards (or anything else!)  I learned this at a class at my local scrap book store!

This is my fancy fold card.  As you can see, it folds flat for mailing, but has "wings" so it can stand alone.

I must apologize for my photography...I actually did enhance and crop these photos, but my computer has been "hiding" things from me and in frustration, I gave up!  Hence, the uncropped photos!  GRRR!

Won't you join in and show us your fav Fancy Fold?  Please link back to our blog here.

Have a fun creative day!

CCEE1933, Vacation Destination

Anne continues on as the hostess with the mostess and this week, she says to create a card using a vacation you love, or would like to go to and make sure to add a 3D element for fun!!

When my husband was alive, we had a beautiful Teton 5th wheel and we did travel a lot!  One of my favorite places was Arizona, where we actually lived for a year and I loved it.  I also loved just taking the Teton and heading for the mountains.  Soo many happy memories of our travel time together.  We actually lived in the Teton after Bill's retirement at our favorite Pennsylvania campground and, unfortunately, after he died, I had to sell that beauty since I sure wasn't gonna drive it around!  This is my most cherished memory of my time with my husband.  I still think of it.  Thanks for the memories, Anne!

My 3D element is the mounted fifth wheel and truck.

OK, show us your favorite vacation destination.....and don't forget to add your card to our blog here.

CCEE1932, Embossing

Anne says Embossing adds so much to a card.  Use either wet or dry embossing and add some bling ...sequins glitter, gems, etc.)

I used Aluminum Foil to cover my base card stock and then ran it through my Vagabond.  I then dabberd some Tim Holtz Stain on the foil.  Added Celebrate, some black dots and a butterfly to finish my card.

I will be using this as a birthday card in the future.  Always nice to be ahead!

Come and join in with the CCEE know you want to!
