Hello!  This month my theme is accordion folds or fun fold cards.
 Today we are swimming by to showoff our Swans!  I've always liked to make cards that don't just sit there .... I made a pop up card and a tri-fold card for our swimming swans. I know swans aren't blue but couldn't resist coloring her blue with my Prisma color pencils.  Don't forget to comment on our blogs to be included in our drawing to win a set of new stamps!  Please go to An'Jenic's blog to see where her swans are swimming.

Here's the Design Team:

Come on back tomorrow for more creativity.


  1. Really like that second card and the clever use of ribbon as water

  2. Sue--these cards are just wonderful! I love them both, but really like the one on the right! TFS

  3. Fantastic cards. I love the elegant accordion card. That striped ribbon is perfect.

  4. Very pretty. I like how the trifold card turned out.

  5. Love both cards Sue! All the folds are great.

  6. I like the fancy folds for these beautiful swans.

  7. Both of your cards turned out really nice...well done

  8. Beautiful work Sue! You always hit it right out of the park! I love the fact that you used blue for one of your swans and grey for the other...and it works!!! Great job!

  9. Like the variety of folds for your Swan cards. I've not made an accordion fold card but want to give it a try now.
