Dare To Be Sassy Thursday #66 - Fancy Folds



Welcome to another edition of Dare To Be Sassy Thursday! The week is almost over, and I'm looking forward to the weekend. I'm feeling a bit stressed this week - busy at work since it's the end of the month and still lots of crafting to catch up on at home. Plus they are predicting SNOW here tomorrow, and it could be a big one, as in a foot plus! I thought Spring had officially started, but I guess Mother Nature hasn't gotten the memo yet.

It makes one start dreaming of a tropical vacation somewhere... And I think it influenced my card! lol DTBST Challenge #66 calls for Fancy Folds (anything other than your standard fold). I chose to do a stair step card. This is my first attempt at one, and I have to say I am pretty pleased with the outcome. It was a lot of work, but the effort is worth it! Little Mermaid Honey from Sassy Studio Designs is the focal point of my creation.

I have to run and start my day, but I'll be back soon! Thanks for looking, and your lovely comments are always appreciated!
