Phindy's Place Weekly Challenge

I am not going to lie. This week's challenge over at Phindy's Place Challenge Blog had scared me and I had planned on not doing it. But this morning I learned that Phindy's Place was part of a group called Paper Craft Planet which is a collect of groups that have their own challenges, chats, etc. I became a member of both PCP and PP and chatted with a wonderful group of ladies.

I don't recall who it was, but someone suggested I Google Fancy Folds and watch some videos and I just might be surprised at how easy Fancy Folded cards could be. Well, when I am wrong I admit it. And I was WRONG!! I made this card using Phindy's Miss Chrissy Tree, which I adore and what's called a spring card. It lays flat in and envelope and when you take it out it springs up.

Then I was reminded we can entered the challenge up to 3 times. :) Guess I am going to Google some more tomorrow...oppps later today :)


  1. This is stunning! Glad you joined the PCP group!

  2. Great card!! See, it's a good thing you joined Phindy's Place on PCP!! LOL - Can't wait to see the next 2!!

  3. You did a great job on this, Chris. See? It wasn't too hard and it came out wonderful!
    Thanks for playing with us at Phindy's Place!

  4. Chris it was my suggestion to use Google and I am not too proud to admit that I Google lots and I also use Help menus and instruction manuals, but then I am a gal and not a guy - lol. I am glad you tried this because it turned out beautifully. I haven't tried that style card yet and can't wait. Hopefully mine will turn out as well as yours. Thanks for joining us at Phindy's Place this week.
