CCC Week 35- Ribbon and Gems



Its week 35 at the Creative Card Crew Challenge. This year is whizzing by, and im struggling to keep up with everything. You must be fed up with me uttering the same old words!! i keep thinking, ill get this week over and done and then ill be on top of things, but that never seems to happen. Am i the only one like this, or are there others of you suffering from the same?


For my card this week, i cheated, and used cards id made last year. I used to do alot of this iris folding, using my fabulous talented friend Anna's stamps. I have decided to get them out again this week, once the children go back to school. I do love the effect you achieve with this folding technique.

Please join in with our challenge this week, and have the chance to win one of the fabulous download kits from my other talented friend Tracy. Her work at the Creative Cottage is just fabulous, go see for yourselves.





Hope to be back later with some more cards.

Hugs Linda x

Hello Linda. Never enough hours in the day are there. I seen to suffer the same at time. Hubby always asks what do I do all day and sometimes I dont even have the answer, but its not crafting. Love your iris folding, tried it myself a few years back but not for me. Lovely cards. Take care
