{ Friday free for all challenge - paper folding }

Every Friday we have a new challenge at Embellish-It Scrapbooking. Today's challenge is hosted by Michelle. Incorporate paper folding in some way on your card....besides the card fold(s).Use the folding as an embellishment; try Tea Bag Folding, Iris Folding, Pleating or any form of paper folding (besides the card folds) on your card for a change of pace. Please use keyword FC5 when you upload your projects to the gallery so we can all see your beautiful work! To see everyone's submissions click *here* For my card I pleated the patterned paper and sewed it to the card. The beautiful tree is from Impression Obsession called Branches of a Tree. I love it!!!! The sentiment is from Express Yourself set. Basic Grey patterned paper, bird is from Hero Arts, Prima flower and May Arts ribbon. I have received several blog awards/tags. Thank you and I really appreciate it. I am so behind on everything. I have 382 messages in my inbox. I read them all I just haven't filed or deleted them. I am still working on cleaning my room...I hope to have it done by Christmas. The first award is from Magda. The second one is "you inspire me" tag from my dear friend Deborah. The last one is from Kadee. There are different rules for each one, but to make this easier for me I will list five blogs that I love to read or that inspire me. I have 177 blogs in my google reader, so this will be very hard. It is 1:45 am and I need to go to bed. Michelle Wooderson, Stephanie Howell, Roree Rumph, Alli Miles, Carla Peicheff. Wow, what a challenge that was. I ended up catching up on some of the blogs that I missed today. I can get lost for hours reading and looking at all the beautiful creations. I am going to bed now. Have a great Labor Day weekend!

    Thanks so much for the awards!! I'm so far behind on these.. haha!! I think I have 10'ish to post.. Ack!! haha! So don't be surprised to find yourself 'retagged' one day.. ;)

    Have a wonderful weekend!! Hugs!!

  5. First of all, I am just thrilled for you and all your awards! There are so many people who just love your blog and that includes me!

    Secondly, the paper pleating is just beautiful; I have never tried that so I guess I better get busy, right? That stamp image is lovely and the whole look of the card is sweet, soft, colorful and just out of this world! I love it!

    Lastly, thank you for your sweet comment about my first surgery was that fast, "suppose to be simple" cataract surgery. Unfortunately I fell into the 8% of people who have problems with it. The first surgery, itself, was painful since they had so much trouble deadening my eyes. As a result, I developed what they call, secondary cataracts, that need to be removed with a laser. This time they did just one since I am a "watch" candidate because there are so many things that can go wrong with the laser part. So I am healing okay and will be checked next Thursday and then we will set up to do the other eye. I am hopeful that this will be my last surgery but the docs are not so sure. Bummer!
