So very nice of you to stop by! What a fun and challenging hobby to have!

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

Blessings of Easter

This is for the Joy Fold Challenge suggested by Pat at Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge for February 18. I used the MFP a Heinrich Company Blessings stamp. This is a square Joy Fold card.
                                             *here is the website!

First measured the card base...41/4 x 6 and scored at 41/4 and the little card is 3x6 scored at 3...then measured and cut the dp paper to fit. The dp is from Design Originals and Oriental Trading. The cs is from GKD Key Lime and the white is MFP snow storm. The images were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics and Sakura glitter pens I used Spellbinders Classic Postage Stamp and Scalloped Square large for the diecuts. The sentiments were stamped with Grape Jelly Memento and the inside was New Sprout Memento...the background was sponged with Versa Magic Sea Breeze and Lime. Added some ribbon, some pearls and accented some of the sentiments with Sakura Glitter pens.

And do hope you come up with a Joy Fold Card of your own. If you are as unsure of what kind of a card this is as I was, do a google search and YOU will find several different You Tubes as well as directions!! Good luck....some directions are better than others! :-)

This is the inside when it pops open.
