Origami Diamond Fold

This is one of the cards we made when I got together
with friends last month - it was the complicated one!
The pictures show the front, then the card open, and
then you fold the right side in, left side in and then
tuck the flap in the part I am holding open.  I spotted
this card online in the tutorial  section of :
If you try it, follow the scoring directions exactly!
Let me know if you try it so I can see your version!

Marathon Stamping with Power Outage

Had a marathon stamping session at my friend Shirley's  house
and right after dinner the power went out. Of course that did not stop
us, took the flashlights right to her stamping room, and her dear husband
 jokingly offered us his forehead lamp and laughed like crazy when we
took him up on the offer.  Of course when the power was going to
be out for hours he fired up the generator to watch the Cardinal's game!!
Here are just a couple of the cards we made.  I had a stamping date with
my friend Kathy the week before so I am set for posting and
mailing for awhile!
