Good afternoon fellow blogsters out there! I am once again such a divvy! I have already been given a slap on the wrist because my card should have been posted on 6 June but I was going out on Sunday 7 June to meet up with Sue J and her hubby Paul at the Stamp Magic Show in Doncaster and I was over-excited about that so I totally forgot!
Must admit though, this is a good mid-month reminder for you to enter the Crafty Calendar Challenge where our theme is 'Fancy Folds'. Now this was quite a 'head scratcher' for me because I wanted to do something I hadn't done before. I found a site called Beccy's Place where there are quite a few tutorials to choose from and I decided to make a Double Side Stepper card. I made a 'sample' one, using Beccy's measurements, but wanted one slightly bigger (ie 7" x 7") so I twiddled and tweaked the measurements and was very very pleased with the result.
Our sponsor for this challenge is Aurora Wings and they are offering the winner $15 USD to spend on digis in their on-line store. Why not try and make a fancy fold card to enter into our challenge this month. We have some great sponsored prizes coming up and the themes are brilliant.
I had a little bit of a field day with my dies for this one, but you'd never know, would you Sue (Olliesmam)? I have really enjoyed making this stepper shape so I might do another one in the near future - just to make sure it wasn't a fluke that I managed it!

I mentioned earlier that the maestro and I met up with Sue J and her hubby Paul in Doncaster last week and here - just to shame us both - is a little pic taken by the maestro as he and Paul took the mickey out of us shamelessly!!! Naturally we are both behaving ourselves and being extremely serious!
Time goes so quickly when you are enjoying yourselves and we were cackling and chuckling away but Paul and the maestro were also rabbiting on so we didn't feel at all guilty.
Thanks for popping over to have a little look at my blog, I do appreciate it and your comments of course!
I'll be off now - enjoy the rest of your weekend and take care.
Big hugs to you all
PS - In case you can't see that I've lost weight (lol) - I do have a LOT to lose so the 2 stones is just the starting point! However, I can tell by my clothes and funnily enough, my shoes!!! I'm still plodding on btw and am going to weigh myself sometime next week. Fingers crossed peeps!
