For A Friend

Good Morning,

My Crafty Friends, Visitors and Follower,

Welcome to my second blog post of the day.

Today we are starting our new 
challenge  # 208  over at :-

The challenge theme is

Something Beginning With F

and its been chosen by Michelle

I have chosen to use an image from the cd

Everyday Occasions
(The title of the image is A Friend Like You)

You can purchase it and others by clicking on 
the link   HERE.  There are also some great
freebies too,  so well worth checking it out.

The prize for the winner will be
2 digi downloads from the Ooh La La Creations Store


1. Card is 8 x8  and I have made it into an easel card.
I matted it with peach coloured card from my stash .

2. The backing papers are part of the set that go with
the topper.  I just love the bottom paper as it really
does look as if you have folded the paper but in
fact it quite flat.

3. The panels were cut also from peach card and using
the Sue Wilson die Striplets - Radiance.  I then
adhered them at the top and bottom of the card.

4. The topper was mounted onto foam tape and
adhered to the card. Sorry I could not get an
better picture of the topper as its very cute
as it depicts a little bird sitting on a washing
line of crockery and the sentiment reads
A Friend Like you is a Special Gift. This
is one of the ways I have used the theme as
the word Friend beginning with F.

5. The stopper is also another of the same
topper only this time it is in a oval shape.
Again using peach card I die cut the frame
and mounted the topper onto it, added foam
tape and adhered to the bottom of the card.

To complete I have added flowers down each
side of the topper. This is my second use
of theme by using flowers.  I also made
as small bow using peach ribbon and
adhered to the top corner.

So there you go, hope you have enjoyed your visit
and thanks for calling

Until Next Time
As Always
Take Care and Happy Crafting
