Flap It To Me, Baby!

Do y'all remember "Laugh In"? (If not, then I am feeling pretty darn old!!) If so, then the title of this post will make at least SOME sense to ya!

It was once again my turn to hostess the Free for All challenge over on SCS today. I LOVE making flap cards ... my mom gave me the most gorgeous card for my birthday (even though it was "store bought"). It was a tall, thin flap card. Very nicely done ... and ever since then I have been hankerin' to make a flap card, so here ya have it!

Yesterday was one loooonnnnng day!! Took my daughter to school, ran to the middle school to teach a western line dance, came home and cleaned and did some laundry .... THEN ... had my stamp club over, put the post for the challenge together and got it going over on SCS ... THEN ... cooked a German feast with my daughter for her to take to school this morning to share with her German class for extra credit (she had BETTER get a stinkin' "A" out of that class, I tell ya!). Sooo glad the weekend is almost here!! Smiley from millan.net

Wendy,
Your card is beautiful and love the end of the flap. Your extremely talented and I wish we lived closer so you could update me on line dancing (I use to teach it in the 80's).

Beautiful card! Love the flap. You certainly did have a very busy day. I hope you are getting in a little rest & lots of stamping fun!

Beautiful card! I've never done a "flap card". Would love to know your measurements too. And yes, I do remember "Laugh In" - one of my favorites!

Great card, Wendy~

I love the sentiment, and admit that most of my friends...I have met through the internet! YOU, are one of them! Cute card.

When I asked about FB I wasn't pushing you. Just looking at my possible sources of knowledge, as I will be in charge of a FB scene soon! I was hoping you would teach me, like you taught me some blog stuff! LOL Isn't it great to be wanted?!

I sure miss the colors of autumn...how about letting us see some of the area foliage?

Hello again!

I just realized that everyone was commenting on how you fold this card! It is beautiful and elegant!

I would also like to know how to make it? (How about sending the cheat sheet over?!) LOL

Withholding my name as it may incriminate me.
