Things with wings challenge at Fab'n'Funky Challenges

Good morning all

Greetings from sunny Florida!

I expect you're all wondering where I got to lately!  
Unfortunately we've had a pretty bad time over the last few months at home.  My father in law was very ill for a long time and sadly passed away on 31st October.  Things had been pretty bad for quite a while before that and to make things even worse I came down with flu just a few days after that. 

We've eventually got through it all and were lucky enough to have our holiday in Florida booked for a well deserved break, We've been here for six days now and over the last couple of days I've felt almost human again!!

So hopefully I'll be able to pick back up on my blog a bit more now  - which has been sadly neglected of late : )

We have a new challenge over at 

The theme was chosen by our lovely Sharon who  is hosting this week
and she has chosen the theme

Things with Wings

I didn't manage to make a card specially for this challenge but I did have one already made that fit the theme so decided to join in 

We have a lovely sponsor this week 

who are offering a fab prize for our winner

This is what I did....

 Crafter's Companion 5x5 Create a card die - Country garden 
and Crafters Companion 5x2 create a card die - thinking of you

with just a couple of sheets of card and a ribbon and some lace together with a sparkle embellie from creative expressions this card was very quick and easy to make

I hope you'll call in and check out the DT's creations and join in with our challenge this week
and I'll be visiting you all  again really soon!
