Challenge 43 - Fancy Folds...

Hard to believe we are heading into the final month of Bah! Humbug! Challenges for this year ... ya boo sucks!
BUT ... that means we're getting closer to choosing the winner of our Special Prize Draw.   SQUEAL!  Whoop! Whoop! WHOOP!
Seems like only yesterday we were tentatively offering up our first few challenges, hoping that we could get just a few people interested enough to play along and keep our momentum going.   We cannot thank you enough for helping us to make our 1st year so much more successful than we ever imagined. Not only by joining in the fun and spreading the word amongst your friends, but by sharing your own ideas and techniques too.  You are all amazing and we hope that you will continue to wow us with your creativity for our last few challenges.  We want you to recharge your batteries during December so that you're ready to start all over again in January 2011.  
Will ya'?  HUH?? HUH!!??
So let's get on with our first challenge of this month, which brings the opportunity to win a prize and this week we are offering this beautiful Cuttlebug Embossing Folder which will be a valuable asset to any crafter's stash. 
If you fancy being in with a chance of owning this scrummy-yummy folder, then all you have to do is make a Christmas Card or Project incorporating 
Fancy Folds
Now whether you choose to show your fancy folding skills in the form of Iris Folding or Teabag Folding to create a focal point for a project ... or whether you want to have a go at creating something more adventurous like a gift box or bag from scratch for instance ... or even if you would simply prefer to be a touch more inventive than usual with your base card ... is entirely up to you and we look forward to seeing all your ideas.
Please give a warm welcome to our new Guest Designer for November, Pat - Pip's Pastimes who has got us off to a great start with her super Side Step Card.   To check out the details of all the DT samples, just click on the names below to take you to our personal blogs.





Max
The deadline for this challenge is
12 noon (UK time)
Thursday 11th November 2010
You are free to create whatever you like ... it doesn't have to be a card ... in fact, show us as many different projects as you want to share.
Just remember ... have fun and don't forget to leave us a direct link to your project in our comment box so we can come and admire your creativity.

Ann, Irene, Max
