Fly Away

Hi,

I know 2 postings in 2 days !!, well tomorrow we are going to Bodiam Castle , where H and Chloe are going to dress up as a knight and princess and then after that, we are really busy, so there will be no more cards from me, till at least next week.

I know i'm sad, as i have this image in a wooden as well as the slapstick version - but in my defence i liked the wording that came with the slapstick, plus it's also a little smaller than the wooden version. This image so much reminds me of H (he also loves planes) and Whisper, only thing is i would love to recreate this image in a photo, but i don't think Whisper would agree to leaning !!! The papers i've used again i've had for a while and all i seem to do with them is stroke them !!, the ticket stamp was a bargain from 'The Glitter Pot' 99p - i liked the Tim Holtz ones, but they are all precut and stamped.
