Flippin Men

Wow what a lovely today it has been, hoping it has been just as sunny and warm where you are also.
I spent the first half of the day, weeding in my lovely raised bed.  I happened upon a couple of Lily Beetles and then disposed off them quickly.  I managed to trap myself a very large splinter, ouch it was painful.  Then my son's friend came and fitted our new upstairs loo, which very nicely leads me onto this creation actually.

Thursday saw a friends birthday, and I could not resist returning to some very very very old stash, which I think suited him so well.  So I created this humorous creation for him, he dutifully arrived to see us yesterday to pick up his card.................yep he loved it too.

So here is the creation
I am sure you will all have seen these at some time or another.  It is a Flippin' Men creation by La Pashe.  The centre panel is acetate and the image is decoupaged onto the acetate.  I am not a huge fan of peel offs but think they do have their uses and this is one of them.  I used some silver bicycle chain style strips to edge the aperture, along with some scroll corners. If you have not seen these before then here is what makes them so special
 The decoupaged reverse of him sat on his little loo reading his paper with the page 3 pin up, Class!!

I would like to say hello to my new followers, and thank you to the many lovely comments I have received from my wonderful visitors.
