Hello to you all my wonderful friends and blogging buddies.
Yippee!!!! Friday at last. In a couple more hours and my children will be home from school and then they are off for 2 weeks, I love that end of term feeling and it's even better at Christmas.
Today is the start of a new Stampin' for the Weekend Challenge and this time we are being very kind as the theme for the next 2 weeks is
It was my wonderful hubby's birthday on Wednesday so I used this challenge to make his card. Whilst searching for images I found 2 that I really liked and knew they would be ideal ( hubby likes to do a bit of DIY and he also loves drawing and painting. )
Then, I couldn't choose which one I liked best so I decided to use both and made a swing fold card. (if you type in 'swing fold card' into Google you will get loads of tutorials). It did take me a little while to get the measurements right but was worth it in the end to get a 'WOW' from hubby when he opened it!
This was a tricky card to photograph so sorry lots of pictures here:
