Howdy Crafters - thank you for stopping by my blog today. 
I created a Christmas card today that I am so happy with the end results.  It does take some time to put it together .... but it is so WORTH the time, designing, and effort.

  1. Like the wonderful scene. Not made a Bendi Fold card before & will have to give it a try.

    1. The base is easy to create - it is deciding how you will decorate that takes the time in thinking and gluing, and such - but such a lovely tutorial - I am going to make up some bases and put in plastic bags like I have done in the past with triple stamping cards - then I just have to pull one out and go to town - fun to do!

  2. Wonderful card design.. Love the shape and detail.
    Thank you for joining us..over on the Poppystamps challenge blog.

Leaving you with the inspiration of God's Word in 1 Thessalonians 5:9-10 to remind us of this, "For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him." Have a wonderful week!
