Come fly with me!

Happy Sunday'

Brrrr......still cold here in London and no sun today. Nothing left to do but today have a lazy Sunday-a bit of chilling, reading the papers, T.V and naturally a bit of crafting.

Today I have a Birthday card to share with you for my Mother-in Law's partner, Joe. He likes to go to Air shows and has asked for a flying lesson for his Birthday. So I wanted to make a card that reflected his love of planes and here is what I came up with:

Finding a digi image of a plane was difficult especially as I didn't want a cute/funny image. Eventually I came across arthursclipart which has a huge variety of aeroplane images to download. I went for a vintage plane but sorry I have no idea what kind of plane this is........oh hubby is telling me it is 'bi-plane' but he doesn't know the make either......anyone know???

I had fun making this and am just a bit chuffed with myself for finding this image although if did take hours!

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday x
