Winged things xx

Afternoon all

Well what a fabulous few days we've had away in the "minion" (caravan) enjoying the beautiful weather and heat while relaxing and enjoy some nice long country walks in Loch Ken

The site we stayed at was so quiet and picturesque, with stunning scenery all around! The walks were rather hilly for me but we still enjoyed them, finding some geocaches and making a few of our own! For those who don't know what I'm talking about check out here, tho shhhhhhhh don't let the muggles know heeee

Now onto the Challenge this time over at Dream Valley Challenges, with another easy theme Things with Wings! Nothing beats that theme for me, one of my all time favourites!

I made the card a few weeks ago as an order for someone who didn't want their Granddaughter to feel left out when the new Baby was born! Plus she loved fairies and purple so what else could I use but this stunning wee Some Odd Girl Rainbow Fairy coloured with promakers

I would like to enter the following Challenges
Crafty Ribbons - Use Ribbon
Crafting for all Seasons - Things with Wings
Polkadoodles - Things with Wings 
Allsorts Challenge - Purple Passion
The Ribbon Girl - Colour Challenge
Come and Get it - Bingo = Bling, free and Butterflies 

What do you think? I loved making this, the colours just popped and these DCWV papers were perfect to match! I do hope you will join the fun over at Dream Valley Challenges, remember you have just under 2 weeks to play along! So get crafting!

Well I'm off to unpack and get my washes done while we have the perfect washing day weather!
Till next time
