Stampin' Creative Blog Hop - October - Fancy Folds

It's that time of month again - Stampin' Creative Blog Hop.
If you've hopped here from Mikaela's blog (she always has something good to share!) or simply stopped by - Welcome!
This month we're making a card with a fun or fancy fold. 
I decided to make a small bendy card, you may remember I made a larger one a couple of years back ( which seemed to be popular.
Here's the card, let me know what you think...

I have to be honest - I've just noticed that my trees are listing slightly!
The stamp set is Wonderland. Other supplies are Sleighride edgelits dies, iced rhinestones and snowflakes.
A list of supplies, which are all available from my shop, is at the foot of this post.
A complete list of blogs taking part in the hop is also below.

    Scrap Retreat

    If you follow facebook then you'll know that I 'lost' a whole weekend. I went to the Scrap Café crop weekend. I enjoyed it but, as usual, didn't get much done. This leaves me chasing my tail this week to prepare the samples for my 'Christmas - It's a Wrap' classes which start on Saturday. Doesn't leave time for much else for a couple of days.
    With that in mind, here are the 2 pages I did actually complete at the weekend. You may have already seen them. 

    I've another couple of pages to complete and will pop them on here when they're finished.

    Off now to finish some more of the Christmas samples.
    Back soon with this week's deals.

    Message For Tom

    I'm writing this short post today in the hope that Tom, the young man that visited us in Hobbycraft on 23rd September, will read it.
    Hi Tom, I have temporarily mislaid your contact details and have found a demonstrator slightly nearer to you who can help with card classes.
    Would you, or your family,  please email me at as I'd love to be able to help you get crafting!
    Hope to hear from you soon!
