Today is First Day .

Hi there , welcome to my room . Thank you for calling in.
Welcome to a new follower Bridie .
 Just a quick mid week post to share a card made for  craft friends and our Tuesday get together .

This fabulous pre coloured  image is  from an ART PAD from Lili of the Valley, Set 1, Vintage Boys
 The card base is SU, Early Espresso. The 1st layer is textured card stock from ALACRAFT  Loved this card stock  as it has a leather look to it . 2nd layer is striped paper from Country Gent 8"x8" paper pack , NIT WIT COLLECTIONS.  The sentiment is from an unmarked pack of clear stamps ..

OH nearly forgot .
Doug was sitting in his chair near our  lounge window , dozing on and off while I was in craft room , today . Suddenly , he yells out for me .It appears that a koala is walking down the driveway towards the main road . Oh boy what a mad dash for camera and front door . I caught up with "it" as it was stepping off footpath into peak hour traffic .
What a spectacle I made of myself ..arms waving about as I slowed the traffic to a crawl.
The koala manage to make the medium strip and scurried up a tree. A motorist pulled up and rang the fauna rescue number and I went back to reassure Doug that all was well .

Not a photographer but hope you can see the koala .

Hope your week is going well .

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

Stunning card, love that sweet resting boy image!

and awesome to see a Koala! I so miss seeing them, back when I lived out west they were a nearly daily occurence up in our trees in the bush. :-)
