Timeless Tuesday...Tri-Fold

OK so here's the deal...My pictures are not all that great BUT I did participate in TT's challenge to make a tri-fold card. The bottom of course is my finished card tied the folds together....wish I could tie my own folds aka wrinkles that easily as I'm sure we all wished the same. Anyway this is done with the new pear set from Flourishes and I did some research on pears and boy there are a lot of varieties of this lovely funny shaped fruit. Pears offer a great source of fiber and potassium ( or however you spell that ), so they are a healthy fruit to gobble up. I'm not big on eating all pears but do like some of the soft and juicy ones as I'm sure many of you do. Simple card using my water colored pencils as always and just cutting a die and slapping everything together.
Weather here is so mild it's crazy but enjoyable. In the 50's today and we may even hit the 60's tomorrow. Who said we are not in a global warming is a bit nutsy coo-coo...but that's just my opinion. Hope you are all off to a good week. I'm exhausted from dismanteling all my Christmas decos...took me over 4 hours yesterday but it's all packed away for another year. Happy week everyone and before I go I hope you will all consider starting your cards for the Valentine's drive. I'll keep you posted but it's going to start...ready, set, stamp.

This is lovely! I would really love to have this set of stamps. Your coloring is so pretty! Our weather has been very cold the last few days. We were at 18 this morning with a wind whipping.

How lovely! Pretty Pears and Papers, Pat. I haven't put my ceramic tree away yet, but soon. It's not that warm here. It got to 35 with sunshine today. I'll take any sunny day I can get this time of year. Only 78 days until spring!
