CYS: "Witching" you a BOO-tiful day!

Hi friends!

*Picture heavy post!  Lots to see! :)*

Today's the day that we post our cards 
for the Challenge Your Stash (CYS) group.
Our hostess this month is the group's founder, Barb!
She asked us to create a card with a fancy fold and a fall theme
 :::: insert panic face here! ::::

In the summer, I was blessed to visit the REAL MFT store 
and it was an absolute dream come true!
My Favorite Things is as wonderful to visit in real life
as it is to shop online and create cards with their stamps and dies!

I chose for my fall theme:  Halloween!
It's not my favorite holiday ~ but being mommy to 4 kids,
we absolutely enjoyed seeing our kids pick 'the costume' each year,
getting excited about going house to house for Trick 'O Treat,
and getting the chance to visit the neighbors!

They ESPECIALLY love visit the Manzanares family ~
"Mommy!  Daddy! They give out full bars!"

So the "fancy" to my fold is I made a bouncy/springer/flattening card!
How's that for a name?! :)
It's similiar to a basic tent fold - mountain and valleys ...

 Here's the top view ~
and there is a card that pulls out from the center :)

 This card, when it bounces down (or springs up?)
folds completely flat and fits neatly into an A2 size envelope!
Which is wonderful ~
since this has to get into the mail! ♥

I hope it's not too soon to consider this *stash*,
but I purchased this Halloween set in the store 
and just now am getting it out to ink it up.
If it is, I'll take the L! 

Barb is one of the kindest and sweetest ladies I know ...
and she's retired from education but I am SURE she won't get out her red pen
and give me a bad grade! 

What is your favorite fancy fold?
I'd love to see yours, too, and visit your creations!

Big hugs, bigger blessings!
