Anything that Flies

Happy Holiday Monday,

Wow! What a gorgeous day we had yesterday, I hope today will bring us the same. I spent the day with my family in Castleton yesterday and climbed 'Mam Tor' - what a spectacular view from the top on such a lovely day. My little fur babies were shattered when we finally got home - I didn't hear a peep out of them all night!

So, are you ready for another challenge?  We have a new theme over at Make My Monday and I have to say, this is one of my absolute favourites - 'Anything that Flies'.  There is such a lot of scope to this one and I couldn't decide on just one thing that flies, I had to use a few! Here's what I made for my DT inspiration ...

I am seriously into my home decor at the moment and made another wall hanging, but I love these as I get to keep my work, instead of giving it away. Selfish, I know!

This one measures 25cm square and uses one of my precious pieces of Tim Holtz shabby papers as a background. I have stamped out various things that 'fly' including a dragonfly, a butterfly, a birdie, a fairy, an owl and even a flying heart! The flower is handmade and stamped on parchment paper with Stazon ink and the metal butterfly has been coloured with my Promarkers to match the color theme. The 'Wings' lettering was cut using my Sizzix Sidekick. Hope you like it.

Please pop over and check out the work of my teamies if you have the time and I shall look forward to visiting your blogs to see your entries.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Fashionable Stamping - Anything Goes
Fussy & Fancy - Anything Goes

Hugz, Jan xx
