Walking in the Air

Morning all 

First I would like to say Happy Birthday to my Son Adam who is 
41 years old today. 

It seems only like yesterday that he was born in a little Maternity Cottage Hospital 
in Bexleyheath. Back then we had to stay in hospital for 14 days 
not like that now, is it? 

How time goes ..... I really do not know. 

Now here is my card for today 

a card for a man it is not the one I sent Adam as unfortunately he 
suffers from hypertrophic cardiomyopathy so has problems walking
any distances. 

Do look up the symptoms for this as WE did not know anything about it and 
it is hereditary. (comes done his fathers line) 

Now best get back to the card

I have used a snippet of  Hunkydory card stock which had footprints on and used up snippets of 
topper walker and added a few bits of decoupage on top of the walker. 

Placed the topper at an angle so that the footprints can be seen. 

Mounted onto a white card blank which I gave a light dusting of tea dye ink to 
added a sentiment. 

It is a quick and simple card but so good to use up my snippets

I would like to enter it for the following 


So good new I am pleased to say I am a winner over at 

Allsorts Challenge  blog for last week with one of my cards

Thank you for popping in today and look forward 
to hearing from you again very soon. 

Have a great day
