Ally's Angels DT-Challenge #48 Triple Fold card

Hello everyone!

 It's time for a new challenge at Ally's Angels.

The challenge starts today and ends at  Sunday, 8 August 2021

This was an order card that I had to make in a hurry. I was commissioned to make something for a lady who was going to retire. Previously, she worked as a nurse and a little in psychiatry, she is active and has several interests such as sewing, knitting, leather skins and cottage life. All these elements I should try to include on this card.  Here's what I ended up with:

I made a Triple Fold Card, using KennyK's beautiful stamp Naughty Nurse,
which I colored with my Copic markers. The numbers are dies from Brenda Walton.
When you open the card, it looks like this on one side. 

... and the other side looks like this. 


The winner of this Challenge will get this lovely prize:

 Now I look forward to seeing your contribution to our challenge. 
Happy crafting!
I wish you a joyful weekend!

Hi everyone, 

    I hope you all are OK and in good health.  Once again I have to apologise for not posting much recently.

Today we have a new "Anything goes" challenge at  Ally's Angels

Here is the Winner's price:

For this challenge I made a card for my mom. She love different ways to fold cards, so I had to try a new one for her. I still miss all the great KennyK stamps... so I had to use one on my moms card.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend! Take care and look after yourselves.

Thank you for popping in.
