We were to make a card doing something out of our comfort zone...I usually cringe when I read that a challenge is some sort of fold so I decided to break out of that thinking and do a fold. I had my eye on this pocket one and thought it would work for our recipient who likes the outdoors. I like how it turned out and it was pretty easy..I would make another one.

Oh my Polly, your card exudes amazing. I almost missed the bear hiding in the mountains. John is going to love that camper, mountains and bear too. A great pocket card. I've thought about this too, but have not tried it. Thank you for thinking of John.

Awesome card. Love the diamond dp for the fun fold -- which turned out fabulously. Those stamps are so adorable. I especially love the fun pines and mountaintops. And, that bear is the best. I bet he's planning to break into that trailer for a snack. Such a fun card. I am smiling ear to ear and I imagine John will be too.

You and me both, Pol, you and me both!!!! That's what I'm thinking I'll need to do. Arghghghgh. That bear looks like the abominable snowman in Rudolph the RNR, looking over the mountain peaks. So cute and imaginative.

What a great fold to showcase those wonderful mountains, Polly. I like the checkerboard dp. How fun to include a bear amongst the trees. John will get a kick out of your card. I love the smell of pine trees and I bet John does too!

Oh, I remember that fold. It was a fun one. It certainly lends itself perfectly to creating a little scene like this. DH is longing to get back to somewhere where it's hot enough to really smell the pines!
