Fancy Fold

Good morning, Friends! I hope you are all enjoying your week so far! I know we are!! Nick gets to sleep to noon and then do whatever he wants. He's loving it!! And, thankfully, the weather has been beautiful! It is supposed to rain on Thursday but we will see. That usually changes. Anyway, it is nice to be able to relax.

Today's card is one that I saw come through on one of the stamping e-mail lists that I am on. And I just cannot remember who it was from. I really hate it when I do that! She had given instructions for how to make this card, too. I altered them to make it a standard 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" card but her instructions gave you the basic idea. I will have to do some research to see if I can remember who did it. Anyway, I thought it was a fun card! Different for me anyway. And it really is pretty easy. I am using a new set that will be available in the upcoming Summer mini catalog. This set is called Strength and Hope and for every purchase of this set, $2 will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Breast cancer is a part of my family as my Aunt has had it twice and the second time she had to have a double mastectomy. There is also a beautiful digital download that goes with this set, complete with designer paper and embellishments and $2 will also be donated when purchased. Be sure to look for this beautiful set and digital download starting May 1 and let's help fight breast cancer!! O.k. I am off my soap box now :) Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
