Daring Cardmakers-We've Folded!!!

Came home from work today determined to do the Little Extra dare from DCM on the
day it was posted so I had a quick bite to eat and got stuck in.
This week we had to incorporate some folding on our cards so I have gone with Teabag Folding using papers from K & Co's K-Ology collection.....heaven in a paper pack!!! The card looks a little blurry in the scan due to the depth of the folded medallion.
I have folded the medallion so that the edges are sharp and neat rather than the version where they look open. I prefer this look so going wholly against the grain I may make a few more like this for the shop and get some paper stash used up.

Hubby and I had a bit of a serious conversation last night and he has decided against pursuing the job opportunity in New Zealand. I am gutted to say the least but it's his choice at the end of the day. So once me laddo moves out it will be all systems go to get the house spick and span ready to sell and then we can start and look at where we want to mave to. I have bravely offered to help sort his stuff out but got as far as the door and decided maybe I should go and get innoculated first.....lol!!! It looks like a landfill site.
Best go and have a bit of a tidy up before hubby comes home. The dog has had a new toy today and there's stuffing and dismembered limbs all over the lounge floor.
Bye for now
