Flying Away.....

Hi Bestest Blogging Buddies..

I can't believe where the time is going at the moment...  the weeks fly by.... I think it's something to do with me reaching a BIG birthday later on this year.... time has decided to speed up to get me there faster...  and the only good things to look forward to are free prescriptions and a free bus pass!!

Anyway...  it's time again for another IN THE PINK challenge...  this time, the theme is 'Let's Fly Away'... so I decided on my first DT card to use a fabulous little image that I've been waiting to colour!  Isn't she so cute??

Card Recipe:
And  for my second DT card - I wanted to use a new Die-namics die that I bought at Harrogate... it has three different sized butterflies, so was perfect to use for the Fly Away theme!

Card Recipe:
  • MFT Dienamics - Butterflies Die - bought from Harrogate Show
  • Mini butterfly punches
  • Glitter card and dotty paper
  • Digi Paper for background -Design House Digital JUKNeipp
  • Organza ribbon for bow
  • Papertrey Ink Mini Tags and Sentiment
  • Pearls from The Hobby House
And on the flying away theme... we managed to book a holiday yesterday...  yes me, who hates to think about going away - wally that I am, I get really anxious about even the thought of it....  I always love holidays AFTER we've got home...  ANYWAY..  we're off to a fabulous Greek island in a few weeks..  I'm sure it'll be lovely to see a bit of sun though...who knows, it may still be snowing here!

And on that note, I'll disappear!

Big hugs and Happy Crafting... don't forget, I'd love you to pop over to IN THE PINK and enter the challenge this time.. it's good to see good blogging friends there..

    Now the second card is very, very pretty and love the way you have used the music paper but it has loads of butterflies on.
    Not sure if I will be able to enter this time as we go away on the 14th Canaries Cruise for 2 weeks and it is only a week away and things to do, but I will try and hope you will forgive me if I don't lol.
    So if you do any post in those 2 weeks and I don't comment please don't take it personnally, I just won't be here.

  26. Hi Christine, just wanted to pop over to say thank you for the lovely comment you left on my In the Pink entry, it means a lot so thank you!
    How do you do that? I struggle to go between the two styles of CAS and less CAS.
    Both of them are gorgeous yet so different in so many ways - love them both but I don't trust my colouring enough to be able to do the first! Really inspirational hugs Karen

  27. This is beautiful - no other words are needed...


If you like what you see and have a moment, please say hello.. it means a lot to me..
