MAWTT Things with Wings

Come over to Moving Along with the Times and join us in this week's challenge, the theme set by Judith of 'Things with Wings'. There's plenty of scope there for your creative juices to get working. I started off with  a bird at first and then changed to butterflies - they always seem happier to me! lol

I used a small square card from Craft UK and used bright blue card as a mat but where I got this card from I have no idea. I can't ever remember buying it. The little butterflies, cut in various colours with a Martha Stewart punch, were randomly placed around the Lili of the Valley sentiment. I matted the sentiment on to a gold scalloped circle cut with a Spellbinders die. The border of flowers is a Memory box die and after cutting it in white I coloured it with my Promarkers.

I'm hoping that my eyes will stay open long enough for me to enter into some challenges. I've typed this post all in one go so you can tell that my eyes have improved remarkably. I had a larger dose in my injections at the beginning of January and it's made a big difference - I've even noticed it myself. Thank you all for your kind wishes and I will get round to visiting you all soon, I hope.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:

Crafty Sentiments - Anything Goes
Creative Card Crew - Anything Goes
Through the Craft Room Door  Anything Goes
Crafty Cardmakers - Punches and/or Dies
Crafting from the Heart - Anything Goes
Craft your Passion - Anything Goes
