Happy World Cardmaking Day!

Happy World Cardmaking Day :D

I have made a couple of cards today but it was a little too dark to take photos! I have uploaded some other cards that I have made recently, starting with this week's Dare card;

This week's dare is a team dare;

Folding Up

It's "just what it says on the tin", we'd like to see some folds on your cards this week.
Fold the whole card, fold some paper, fold some ribbon.
Do some origami, teabag folding or just fold over a corner of your paper to reveal the other side.
As long as there's some sort of folding used as a feature of your card then it counts. Any subject, any theme, any reason.

I made a folded paper flower, using strips of the reverse side of Basic Grey's Junebug crazy quilt. I also used; Bazzill, Vintage manuscript, a chipboard flower (which I inked and embossed), Bazzill ribbon, felt, and MM and Doodlebug letters.

A cheeky monkey card which I made for my BIL's birthday;

I used, Bazzill, Vintage Manuscript, lots of different punches to create the monkey, Bo Bunny ribbon and Basic Grey Buttons.

A card and and tag made for one of Jared's little friends - I saw an Animal from the Muppets made from punched shapes on a blog but I really can't remember where it was, apologies for not crediting properly.

I usedBo Bunny papers, punches, Bo Bunny ribbon and Melissa Frances rub ons.

and Jase's Birthday card - Jase passed gained his Black Belt in Tae Kwondo on his Birthday so I made a combined card for him :)

and the boys (with a little help (!)) made a cake;

TFL :)

Hi Jo,

As it's WCMD, I'd thought I'd leave a comment on all the blogs I have on my blogroll.

I must admit, I am usually guilty of admiring and running.

Hope you had a cardalicious day!
