Unusual fold

Hello blogging pals .
Welcome to my room and thank you for calling in . I have read and  appreciated all the comments left. Hopefully , I will be back to crafting everyday now that I am feeling ..about 90% better.
But of course the weather is back to freezing here in Adelaide for the next few days .
Today I want to share a fabulous shaped card , the design I found on Split Coast Stampers blog.
One of my craft buddies wanted to make some different shaped cards for Tuesday morning session so this was one for Fran .


The one on SCS.had a separate piece for bottom section but I chose to make it one complete piece of card . The card base  stock is Marina Mist SU and Very Vanilla for diecuts too .The paper is from SU , Well Worn . The bike image is from SU .
 Our Daughter , Michelle and Family have arrived safely back home in Queensland after their holiday and visit here . It was wonderful to see them all , along with her brothers from the North of our state.
Mum and Dad in front with Michelle , Sonny and Danny behind . A treasured photo.
                                                              My Thought for Today

                                                              Tis easy enough to be pleasant ,
                                                                when life flows by  like a song ;
                                                               but the man worthwhile ,
                                                                is the man with a smile ,
                                                               when everything goes dead wrong.

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

What a sentimental picture that is... thanks for sharing, Shirley-Anne. Relieved that you are 90 percent better. Your card is swell... love the folds. Just today someone was asking me for a male card and I did not have a single one. I should take inspiration from you - you make the most neat men's cards.
