What are you working on today???

Hello my friends!
Not sure what you are working on today but I'm still working on fancy fold cards and other crafty items for my upcoming Fall Craft Shows ... (first one Sept. 24).  Time goes by so darn fast I thought I'd better get started!

Today I have another Tri Shutter Card, this time using Graphic45 'French Country' design paper.

I just love the "WOW" factor this card fold has!  
I haven't shown one person a card like this that they don't say WOW ... that is so cool!  And, open and close it a half dozen times!  LOL!


There are no additional embellishments on this card other than the design paper.
A little bit of fussy cutting gave me all the detail and design I was looking for.

A few challenges to share in ...
Scribble and Scrap Challenge #23 - Always Anything Goes
So Artful July Challenge - Colorful Feathers

That's it for me today.  I'll probably be staying in my 'cave' all day, for the next few days.  Going to be in the upper 80s near 90 and our A/C is broken.  We've gotten a few estimates on replacing our central air system and in fact, the guy is on his way over right now to sign the papers and get the job lined up.  HOWEVER, I don't expect it will be soon enough to deal with the high temperatures predicted!  SO ... I'll just keep 'playing in the cave' and hope for the best!

Back to work!
I've switched over to Post-It note booklets and 3x5 Note Pad Booklets so I'd better get busy!  Thanks for stopping by and hope you're have a fabulous start to your week!

OH AND GOOD NEWS to report!
Hubby just came back from his Oncologist appointment where he received the results of last week's CT Scan and I'm thrilled to tell you it was a THUMBS UP!
He continues to be CANCER FREE!
We are SO BLESSED!  Thank you Lord!

Fabulous card. Love doing this fold myself and you've done such a brilliant job. Thank you for joining us over at the Scribble and Scrap Challenge. Good luck.

This is such a wonderful card, Darlene. The fancy folds are beautiful, and the Graphic 45's have so many little do-dads and embellies that can be cut out and applied to the panels. I'm sure you will sell many in your fall sale. It was so nice to hear your hubby received a good report, now if you can just get that "air" fixed. Mine is down, too! Blessings to you both.
