Enjoy every moment..

Fancy Folds!!
That's the theme our amazing crafty hostess, Joyce chose for this months Just Inklined blog hop. 
You should have hopped here from her blog. If not, hop on over and see what she has created for us. I am sure you don't want to miss it.


I chose to make a Double Dutch Fold card. I haven't made one in a long time.
There is a fabulous & easy tutorial by Patty Bombyk HERE in the Splitcoast Stampers resource section. 
I tweaked the measurements on mine because I wanted my card to be a little bigger, but it is basically the same. I chose a new Just Inklined image called "Serenity". Isn't it beautiful? It looks like one of my favorite Summer time spots. Can't you just see yourself sitting there? What would be in your pitcher?? Lol



Here is a pic with the bottom gate fold part open. The top fold is still closed.

Next you are going to be hopping over to our super talented boss lady Jak's blog. She is sure to have some fabulous eye candy for you. She never disappoints.

Make sure to visit all the blogs on the hop, there are 2 hidden prizes to be won!
Enjoy the hop!!
