Accordian/Squeeze Box fold



Well today's challenge at notimetostamp is to do an accordian fold. Now you know I don't want to put the "squeeze" on you, but if you're interested you can see it's not all that hard. Did you know the patron saint of accordianist's or is it accordian players??? anyway the patron saint is...ready? are you sure?? silly it's Lady of Spain of course. Or if you are a topless female accordian player it's probably Lady of Pain...Ouch that one hurt! My card ( have to get down to business) is done with the beautiful leaf stamp put out by Flourishes and done of course with my favorite water colored pencils and my blender. I started out by embossing in gold and then went to work like in school and started having my fun. Added a few little dots with a stamp by Judith and a phrase I think by Flourishes but not really sure anymore cause my area is such a piggy stye. Easy card that was done with brown and sort of orangish cs. Put a little bling in the opposite corners and I'm done.
Well my big weekend plan is tonight's party at the church to raise money for the Poverty Program that I work with. We are having a spaghetti dinner with all proceeds going directly to our cause which is to feed the hungry and homeless. Big job as the numbers keep climbing. Hope it's a big success. We are having a raffle and the dinner so wish us luck. Have a great weekend to one and all. See you next week.

Gorgeous Card ~ no matter how you squeeze it! Love the floaty pattern of the leaves. Good Luck with your fundraiser. It's a shame that it is needed so desperately. C'mon economic recovery!
