Crafty Creations - Fancy folds!

I have some lovely shaped cards from Craftwerk cards
and I decided they would adapt well
into a fancy fold card with a couple of straight crease.
Perfect for this weeks Crafty Creation challenge
Fancy Folds.

I love this simple shape fold and will definitely use again.

We are thrilled to have
Robyn's fetish sponsoring this week
and I have used one of her lovely images.

Coloured with copics,
Basic grey dp, sticky pearls,
stickles and a handwritten sentiment.

Have a look at the Dt fancy folds 
and you may find something new to inspire you.
We'd love to see your fancy folds  - so play along!

When Valentines day was fast approaching
I knew what I wanted - how gorgeous is he!

A bit of a challenge.....2 pot noodles and a window cleaner!

I do love to be challenged and this one I thought about
for a good few days before making a start!

The request:
Happy 40th Birthday Sarah
A window cleaner looking confused,
washing a window, inside two hot pot noodles
sitting on a table.

You know it has to be a personal joke...don't you?

I had a lot of fun making it.
