Squash Card


Happy New Year hope you had a good Christmas. We had a family one, back and forth to each others houses, its great when there are little ones around at this time of year.
My daughters and I started the proceedings with a visit to Church on Christmas Eve to the Chris-tingle Service with our four Grandchildren which put us in the festive mood, although disaster lurked around the corner as one of the Christmas presents couldn't be made up. The parts had all been checked days before, everything tallied with the paperwork, but the company had given them parts for a single swing and attachments for a double, which until the assembly started there was no way of knowing. My daughter and husband had fifteen minutes before the stores closed, to source a new present, which they did.

All's well that ends well, but I wouldn't have liked to be on the other end of the phone after Christmas when they talked to the toy company.

Well after a very long absence, here is a card I have made as a tutorial for my Stamping Group.  I have to give written instructions for making the card and show my own take on the card.  I have never done anything like this before so hope all goes well.
Here is a link to the site where I found the card,  www.DOstampingwithDawn.com 
Dawn is a very talented lady.

The card  is made from an 8 x 8 piece of card and folded origami style to make a four inch square card,  which when opened reveals your hidden message.
that's all for now. We are having some major alterations to the upstairs of our house, so although I want to be a better blogger in 2013 the next month may be a little hectic, but hopefully when all is finished I will do better.
