Fancy Folds Blog Hop

Hi Everyone,
If you arrived here by way of Donna's Blog , then you are at the right place, but if not and you want to be eligible for great prizes, then click here to start from the beginning.  WOW.... by now you should be getting inspired.  A
re you having fun? Fabulous Folds!! What a great theme for our first blog hop for 2013.

Prizes will be awarded, so don't forget to leave comments on everyone's blog, 'cause that's how you become eligible for the prizes that are to be given away.  This is a 4 day blog hop so you'll have plenty of time to view all the projects and leave comments.The prizes are stamp sets, flocking, glitter embossing powders, etc.BTW, there are 3 designers who've been designated to have prizes "hidden" on their blogs, so comments are important and we LOVE getting comments.They really make our day. 


I have made a cute bookmark card for you today.  Not only is this a cute card to send, but the recipient can continue to use this bookmark long after the card has met the round recycle bin.  This is such a super simple card to make and so much fun to receive.  At first glance this looks like just your ordinary card....


But when you open it.....    You get a cute little flap...  Of course we had to decorate this flap...  But it's not just your ordinary every day flap...  Lo and behold the magic....


This adorable (detachable) gift can be saved and used even after the recipient no longer desires to keep the card.  Let's face it ladies... We want to keep all of them, but it just doesn't happen....  :(
I hope you like what I have done for you today...  I once again ran back to my favorite stamp set Rose Garden.  I knew it was going to be my set of choice when I chose to make this card.  I made my beads from designer paper and rolled them in glossy accents to make them look real and even added a small amount of waterscape glitter for that extra shine.  I added the yellow glitter to the flower centers as seen on the front of my card.  I chose to leave the inside of my card very simple and plain and let the bookmark and card front take the center stage here...


Once again I hope you enjoy what I have done for you today.

Thanks for joining us on our first blog hop for 2013. Before hopping back to the Sparkle N Sprinkle  blog, please leave a comment here on my blog to be eligible for a prize.... Now don't forget to return to Sparkle N Sprinkle so that you can purchase everything you saw while on our blog hop so you too can recreate all of these wonderful projects..

In case you get lost here is a list in order of all the team members on today's hop.

Well, whoever gets that card won't be putting it in a round recycle bin for a long time. It is gorgeous. And, love the idea of the bookmark. I am usually not into fancy folds, but all the works of art seen in this hop have really started me to thinking maybe I should try a few more. Thanks for the inspiration!
