MAWTT Challenge 92 - More than one fold (but not an easel card)

Hi all you bloggers out there and welcome to Thursday and a new challenge at MAWTT.

I know I haven't been around much lately and I am not really MIA, it's just that I have to finish visits to all my schools before the end of term and get their reports out, consequently I am at it full time at the moment with very little left for creating and blogging. After Easter I am out of work completely so I will be around more then.


But here is my gem for the fabulous challenge set by our talented Shell today. She has chosen to challenge us to make something with more than one fold and NOT an Easel card. So I have made a birthday 'card' book for a very good friend whose birthday will be coming up soon. This definitely has more than one fold!!! I used the Technique Junkie CD which was a prize a couple of months ago. This little book is made from 1 sheet of 12 x 12 paper, a piece of card to make the flap (my idea that bit) and owires to bind it together.

As our sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps, I have used several of their digi stamps to make funny cards inside the book for my friend to read. You can find these at -   http://www.bugaboostamps.com/home.html












I had fun doing the adult colouring in using my promarkers and then decorating the front cover. The flap is secured at the back with a small piece of velcro.

Ken bought me a photo light tent for my birthday, but I really couldn't get the light right today, so apologies. I am going to have to experiment with it more.

Hope your week is going well, have fun.

luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox
