Good morning fellow bloggers.  I'm sorry that this is a little late it's because I have been card making for my lovely neighbour's mum.  The theme at the Crafty Calendar challenge this month is 'Things with Wings' and I just had to get this one coloured because I love the image.  My little bug didn't have any wings so I used a couple of die cuts and popped them onto a coat hanger ready for him to wear when he goes out to 'partay'!!!  My brain sure works in mysterious ways.  As always our challenge runs for a month so you have plenty of time to make a card or two and we would love to see your 'winged' creations.

I've used my wonderful foil machine for the sentiment but the lighting was awful and the holographic foil just didn't photograph very well so the maestro did a close up to help you see it properly.

We have two sponsors this month - and that means two prizes!!!  We have

Crafty Ribbons  -  who are offering £10 to spend in store 

and Angie's Cards and Digis - she is offering a prize of digis!

We girls in the DT would just love to see all your creations - it makes us very happy to see your interpretations of our themes.

I'm taking Graham swimming again next week (lol)  - you all know he's taking me really!!  Looking forward to it - the plastic has now gone and I just have to make sure my bosoms are engaged - no I know I didn't tell you about that bit, let's just say I missed the 'cup' part when I put it on and had to 'readjust' in the water - having trotted from the changing rooms to the pool with bosoms akimbo!  Oh well!

That's all from me for now - can't wait to see your cards etc.

Take care of yourselves and enjoy this bit of sunshine!

Big hugs to you all 

Love Sue xxx
