How fancy are your folds?

There were a lot of wonderful stitched projects last week (gonna be hard to pick our top 5 once again!) but now we're moving on to a new challenge!

But before we get to that, I want to announce the winner of the prize from sponsor Ruth Nava and that winner is......drumroll......#21 - Kathy! Congrats Kathy! Send your mailing address to me at mbryt1@bex.net and I will forward it to Ruth. Also, a great big THANK YOU to Ruth for being a great sponsor! Thanks for joining us and offering this week's prize. Don't forget, you can visit Ruth's blog at The Scrap Chick.

So this week, we are including fancy folds on our cards and other projects. If you Google stamping and fancy folds, you will get some great ideas or better yet, take a look at what the Design Team came up with - loads of inspiration for you!








Be sure to click on each designer's name to go to their blog and find out all the details on how they included the fancy folds challenge. And leave them a little love while you're there - they deserve it!

Now we want to see what you can create with fancy folds. Post your artwork on your blog or other online gallery and then come back here and leave a link in Mister Linky below. We'll be around to check out what you create and you might just be in the next Friday Five!

Have a great week!

I truly enjoyed this challenge!!! TY to the Design team & Mary for keeping up the Challenges.
I truly did take my time to create this wonderful card & I'm sure glad I did it. If only I could go back on all of the challenges. :)
Right below this card is another card I created as a waterfall card. I'm just loving Utube tutorials they are a great way to learn new things. Thanks again!

I'm loving the fact that each week these challenges are making me try something that I've been meaning to get around to...

Finally...I "made myself" take pictures tonight so I could get my challenge posted. The last couple of weeks, I've gotten busy and didn't get my projects photographed and posted! Great job this week, DT!!!
