Phindy's Friday Challenge

TGIF!  Friday means it's time for Phindy's Friday Challenge over on the challenge blog. This week's challenge is "Spring is on the Way". Well, I'm not too sure if that is true around here yet, lol, but it was fun to make a cheerful springy card!

This little guy, A Little Tied Up, from Phindy's Place just made me smile.  My dad bought the boys kites last year, so I think I'll send this one to him!

The fold here is called a spring fold.  Tutorial is from SCS. It folds flat and fits in a square envie, so it would be easy to mail.

Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you will stop over to the Phindy's Place Challenge Blog and play along this week.  Have a wonderful weekend.

A Spring Fold is really thinking outside the box, what a great idea and this works so well as the image, love the colours you used too. Now all we need is for Spring to arrive!

This is a wonderful card, Kathy - your coloring is fabulous! Kites and Spring really go together in my mind.
Thank you for the charming card!
