Another Skater Boy

Welcome to another new follower, Georgia. I hope you get to drop in from time to time.
Wednesday is the day I go to a community craft group at a church. I'm the teacher there, but class consists of just me and another friend. She takes her paper embroidery to do and I take stamping or paper embroidery - whatever is on the go here at home. No newcomers for a while now, but it is like that for the whole group, not just my table. If I find something a bit different, I usually share how to make it and might get a couple of other people off one of the other tables joining in.
Today, I started on a new embroidery pattern from one of the Hobbyjournal magazines. I'm hoping to finish it before Saturday so I can give it to my daughter for her engagement.
We had a beef roast for tea tonight so I invited our youngest daughter and her boyfriend over to share it with us. They made the garlic bread. Yum!!
It's been a really cold night so the fire is going in the family room and I rug up when I come in the lounge to use the computer. So will get on with this post before I freeze, LOL.
The card for today  I cased from one I made with Shirley on one of our Tuesday classes and I think she found it on the net somewhere. It is an easel card with a slight difference. There really is not much of an inside of the card as the side panels are stuck down, so to write a message, you would have to turn the card over and write on the back in a light coloured gel pen in my case as the cardstock is SU Chocolate Chip.
I've also used SU Bashful Blue for the mattes and for the Nellie Snellen diecut. The DP is from My Mind's Eye. I used the same die to make a matte for the image topper and also for the little piece to hold the easel section in place when open. I backed a piece of the DP with some card and cut it out with a small circle punch to add to the middle and then popped this on to the centre panel with a foam dot to give it some height so the top would stay in place. The sentiment is from Hampton Art - Clear Expressions set called "All Occasion" I added 3 small pale green rhinestones ( (B)ling - for the Sentimental Sundays Challenge.) to the LH side of the topper.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Sentimental Sundays - Challenge #102  ~ (B)irthday Theme using embellishments starting with (B)
The Lollipop Ladies  - Challenge #45 - Freckles plus additional challenge SPOTS
Here Come the Boys - Challenge #27 ~  Birthday Easel Card

I've taken a photo as well as scanned the card (not a great photo but at least you can see that the card is an easel card.)

Thanks again for all the lovely comments, it was fab to "see" those who stopped by
