High Flyer

Hi .

Welcome to my room . Really happy that you have called in . Thank you so much followers all , a special appreciation for comments that are left . Know that I read them all .

Doug and I went out for our usual Friday morning coffee and scones at B&B at Northpark shop centre and who should pop in to have coffee with us but my dearest craft friends , Fran and Sandy . They all get on so well with Doug and wanted to wish him well after learning that he had been in hospital over Easter . It was great to catch up .

In one of the 100's of magazines I have, I remembered a card design that I have been meaning to try . I have been making a few variations of easle cards lately ..

and this is one I will try again ..

Whisper White for card base . Just a C6 sized card . The card front has two panels cut to the fold at 5 cm from both short ends .The centre one is folded in half to the fold . That is where the image is attatched .

The two outside panels are adhered to base of card
I then added , with foam tape a Night Of Navy strip to each side , adding, with ds tape, Bashful Blue then White.I had stamped the stars on each white , coloured them in and punched out larger star and paper pieced that on .
Skater Mat is a Lucy's stamp . He is coloured with copics except for hair , that was pencils . I diecut the frame and adhered him to card .

I added a strip of striped paper to centre adding the sentiment with foam tape .

Wow, bit earlier tonight . Might trot off to make myself a Milo now and settle down for some commenting of my own .
Wish you could join me Michelle .

Hope you like my card .

This card I hope is suitable for

Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne.
