Fancy Folds with Crafty Calendar!

Morning lovelies.......hope you're all well & have something nice planned
for the weekend! Bright & very breezy here today so methinks I'll be
ploughing through the mountains of washing I always seem to have!
First though, I have some exciting news...........myself & Sue are now the
 proud co-owners of  the Crafty Calendar challenge blog! Lynne, the previous
owner had decided to step down due to ill health & rather than close the blog
she very generously handed over the reins to us two!
So today sees the start of June's challenge, the theme is FANCY FOLDS
and we're sponsored by the fabulous Aurora Wings who are offering a
prize of  $15 to spend will be soooo spoilt for choice!
We were lucky enough to receive a sponsor image, I chose Turtle Kiss &
after colouring her with my Copics I made an easel card, I added lots of die 
cuts, distressed layers, cheesecloth, pearls, some paper flowers & finished
with some chit chat stickers from Tim Holtz.
Rightio, my friends, that's me for today.......thanks for calling & whatever
 you're up to......have a lovely weekend!
