I've read so much about Impossible Cards and always thought they looked, well, impossible! However than I found this tutorial at Beccy's Place and realised it's one of the easiest card folds ever!
I made a plain white card just to test it out, and even after making it I couldn't believe it was possible - that upright panel appears to have come out of another dimension! I've decorated it with lots of snippets from my stash, including some die cuts that were surplus from other projects. As they were originally cut from snippets, does that make them snippets squared?
I am sharing this with

Right, if you are just here for the card, you can scroll right past the next bit - holiday snap time!
Now a bit more about our trip to Sardinia. It was rather disappointing because half the time the weather was like this:
- although when the sun came out, the same view was pretty spectacular!
There wasn't a lot to do in the town - we're not great beach fans or sun bathers, we're more culture vultures, and being a small, modern, purpose-built tourist resort it wasn't really our kind of place, although we did manage to swim in the sea every day (yes, even when it was raining - after all, we were going to get wet anyway!) and we had some lovely meals.
The town did have one event, a Festival of Love. It turned out to be a row of stalls selling things like candy floss, tattoo removal, artichoke paste and, of course, vacuum cleaners.
Because, you know, nothing says "I love you" like a new vacuum cleaner!
Apparently this weekend there is to be a festival of Fish Soup. I wonder how they will be celebrating that?
