Crafting For All Seasons Challenge 94

Hi, All my blogging buddies.
 
Hope all of you in the UK are keeping warm. It has been freezing over the last few days.
When I speak to my brother-in law in Australia,
I am very jealous when he says how warm it is there!!
 
Today, over at Crafting For All Seasons,
we have our new fortnightly challenge starting.
 
The theme for this challenge is:
 
Things With Wings.
 
Our genorous sponsor for this challenge is
 
 
and the prize is 3 images.
 
 
 
Check out Faery Ink shop here.
 
You will see some stunning images.
Be one step ahead in case you win!!
 
The image I chose is Bee-you-tiful Pixie.
 
Aptly named, as I am sure you will agree, she is really beautiful.
 
 
I loved colouring her with Distress Inks, with Stickles on her wings.
Her eyes are amazing.
 
I cut the shape free hand, as I didn't have a die the shape I wanted!!
 
As you can see, the paper in the background, (free from a magazine, last year I think!),
has the shape on it that I wanted. It's supposed to be honeycomb. 
 
So I traced the shape and then scaled it up with my ruler,
 that has all measurements through the ruler.
 
The bees were in the paper pack too, so I cut them out.
 

I found the bee stamp in my stash. No idea where that buzzed in from!!

Don't know how you keep your stamps. Mine are in files, on acetate,
in punched pockets.
When I am looking for a particular image, I see stamps,
that I can't ever remember buying!!
I didn't really think I would have a bee, so was very surprised that I did!!
 
The sentiments were also in the pack. Very lucky for bee!!Lol!



I can't wait to see your creations.
Things With Wings, gives you such a huge selection of
different things, from fairies, to birds and even planes!!
What are you going to use?!!!
 
If you would like some more inspiration,
take a trip over to Crafting For All Seasons blog.
You will see my wonderful teamies, beautiful pieces of artwork.
 
I would like to welcome my new followers to my little corner and
hope you like what you see.
Please come back soon, as I love reading your messages.
 
Hugs,

A lovely card Carol. Thanks for popping by my blog and your comments regarding my MIL's replacement knee operation. She is doing okay at the moment and following the advice of the doctor's. Just hope she has a positive outcome.
