Loving Wishes...

Happy Friday to all....Awhhhhh......the weekend is almost here! If this cold weather persist...well this girl will be hibernating. I may lock myself into my scrapbooking room and make cards all weekend! I don't think the family will mind! This morning when I went to JustMagnolia to check out there challenge for this week I was so excited to try it! The challenge is Paper Pleating! Never done this before...but boy oh boy...love it! I don't know if I perfected it like all the DT members but this is my take on it! I had to use some spring like colours. I have been doing too many winter cards. Got to get out of that!

If you have never done this technique just pop over to Just Magnolia and they have a very good demo! I really think you will like this one!

Keep warm!

  8. I was just checking out the pleat challenge and saw your name on the list, so I popped over here and WOW! What a fabulous card! I love the way you did a curve with your pleating - very creative! I love that image and you colored her in the prettiest colors. Well done! Yep, you'd best be comin' down here, because this is cold enough, so I'm not comin' up there in the winter. :) Warm hugs,
