Things with Wings.....

I created this card for an upcoming technique class, and when I discovered that it fitted in with Uniko Studio's "Things with Wings" Challenge #20, I thought I'd link it up.  It's been a very long time since I joined a challenge of any type, and when I saw this I decided that it was a sign that I should enter. 

While I created this with Mother's Day in mind, the sentiment could easily be adapted for any occasion. 

Colours: Real Red, Pool Party, Night of Navy, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie.
Stamps: Itty Bitty Banners, Wildflower Meadow
Other: Butterflies Thinlets Dies, Brights Buttons, Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine

The Year So Far......

Well.....the year so far....craft wise has been more prolific than it has been for a while.  Due to a change in positions at work, I find that I now have more time for crafting, which is great.  It did take me a little while to find my creative side again, and I have been experimenting with some products that are either retired or from *gasp* other companies. But I thought I'd give you a quick snippet of creations from my year so far.....
Starting with Christmas.....  A good friend found some Hershey's nuggets and kisses and together we found this cute little Christmas tree online.  I created these red and silver ones for the Christmas Day table.....

A childhood friend had a significant birthday in January, so I created this card for her to celebrate the milestone.  I used Blendabilities (discontinued now *insert sad face) and Night of Navy and Coastal Cabana cardstock.  I stamped the images from I Like You hostess set in Versamark and then embossed with white embossing powder.
A work colleague had her birthday in March, so I created a set of cards from the SU! Painted Blooms DSP, available in the Occasions Catalogue.
In April, one of the mum's from school had her fourth baby, at last a girl after 3 boys. The sentiment circle is from A Fitting Occasion and the giraffe and congratulations is from Zoo Babies.

A close up of the sentiment circle to show the split heart detail, taken from the background paper.

Anyway, I hope you have enjoyed this quick snapshot of my year so far.....
