Hope everyone is having a great start to the weekend.   I know I am planning to relax a bit, get caught up on bills and sleep in tomorrow!   We have a NEW CHALLENGE for you over at DI’S DIGI DESIGNS and it is TRY SOMETHING NEW.  This challenge is obviously open to interpretation, but the hope is for you to try a new fold or technique, but you can also try a new coloring medium, new color combo, new stamp co., etc.  All the DT gals this week have chosen a new fold and the results are fabulous, so I hope you will check them out!

You have until 11:59pm EST on Friday, January 18 to come join the fun.  Remember, you don’t need to use an image from DI’S DIGI DOWNLOADS to play along, but if you do, you have a chance to win 2 images from DI’S DIGI DOWNLOADS in addition to a chance at the sponsor prize – $10 voucher to Crafty Sentiments Designs (winner pays postage if any).

For my card today, I chose this adorable image “Izzy’s Plant Pots” from DI’S DIGI DOWNLOADS.   I have colored the image with Copics and cut out with scissors.  My new fold is called “Concertina” fold and you can find the Splitcoast tutorial by clicking HERE.  I used Gina K. Designs and American Crafts CS, DP from K and Co., an SU border punch, Nestie for the die behind image and also for sentiment which is from Taylored Expressions.  I also added flowers from Prima and lace from Webster’s Pages to the back panel.  Hope you like it and will come play along!

BROWN SUGAR – thinking of/missing you
CRAFTS 4 ETERNITY – something new – new fold
FUN WITH SHAPES AND MORE – anything but square
