Happy Wednesday, how are you doing? Still super sunny and warm here and boy am I suffering with hay fever! Each year it seems to get worse and now I’m getting grumpy because its keeping me awake! A sleep deprived Amanda is not good.

But what makes me smile EVERY week is Craft and Chat, and yesterday was no different. We chatted and crafted and I shared a card sent to me by one of my team Sarah, for Christmas. It’s such a lovely fold I thought we all needed to know how to make it. This is Sarah’s card, mine is underneath. I hadn’t seen the style of card before, and it’s only recently I’ve learned that is called a book binding fold.

Card Base 4″ x 11 1/2″ score at 4 1/2″ and 5 3/4″
Layers 4 1/4″ x 3 3/4″ and 4″ x 3 1/2″
Layers 1″ x 3 3/4″ and 3/4″ x 3 1/2″

You can see the way the card is stuck and folded in this picture. I love the dimension the Pierced Blooms give the card.

Next week Craft and Chat will be taking place on YouTube at the same time 2pm on Tuesday. I am trying YouTube Live out and would love it if you could come and join me. I’ll be sending out more information about how you can access the live and sign in to YouTube later this week, so don’t worry if its all new to you. We can learn together!

Enjoy the rest of your week, and if you are in the UK stay safe from all the thunderstorms that should be rolling in tomorrow. I’m hoping the rain will come and wash all the pollen away!
