Pick a Fold

You guys are all so terrific...   Thanks so much for coming to Peggy's Pity Party last week!  I was feeling a bit overwhelmed and under-creative. Nothing seemed to come together. I feel so much better now.. and I appreciate all of the nice comments so much.

'Lots going on this week. We have a new sassy gal that joins us as of this challenge and it's Sassy Pat.. so check out her blog and all of her creativity. You are guaranteed to have a bit of inspiration from your visit.

Miz Sassy Jeni (aka Flip Flop) gets to hostess Sassy Cheryl's challenge this week and her theme is a special fold -- meaning anything other than a tent-type fold.. so we need to get creative and put our thinking caps on, right??

I decided upon a side step card for Jeni's challenge using one of Sassy Cheryl's newest images... which just happens to be perfect for the 'back to school' crew.

I used copics to color the image and a very old apple stamp (from ??) that I cut out, some apple designer paper (Paper Studio) and a MS grass punch, then created a computer-generated sentiment in MSWord.  There's a few shadows in my photo... sorry 'bout that!

Wouldn't this be perfect for a grandma to send to her special grandson as school begins this Fall?

Thanks so much for stopping by my little corner of blogland. I hope you are doing well, and as always, I appreciate your comments. Be well, friends! I hope to see you at the challenge this week.

Hey, we all need a pity party sometimes. :) But you ALWAYS create the most GORGEOUS cards, so you would never know a thing was wrong.
And this one is no different. A lovely card and the sentiment is simply perfect!
