Moving Along With the Times - 'Flying High'

Time for a new Challenge over at 


Our hostess this week is the lovely Claire who has chosen the wonderful theme of ....

'Flying High'

So we want to see Planes, Balloons, Birds, Kites, Insects... etc... on your creations... remember it doesn't have to be a card as long as you follow the theme!

We are sponsored this week by the fabulous Stitchy Bear Stamps



 I have used one of their fab images called  Swirly Owl !!

  

The scrummy paper is First Edition - Sweet Owl... and I've used Nellie Snellen and Tonic Studios punch for flowers. Added a twine, owl charm and pearls from stash.... The border is Nellie Snellen.


I've coloured the image with Promarkers.....


Hope you can pop on over to MAWTT for more details and to see my Teamies wonderful creations... lots of fab inspiration!! Closing date for the Challenge is 8pm BST on Wednesday 5th September 2012.

Sorry this is short... I am still ill with bronchitis and asthma... so not feeling up to any crafting or blogging at the moment Sad smile
Fortunately I had made this card and done all the post in draft before I became ill.... 
I really hope that I start to feel better soon.. getting blooming fed up with it now... 
.... meanwhile I'm going to snuggle up with my book and my bestest buddy....Vick's VapoRub!!! 
Thank you for all your lovely comments and good wishes... 
Hoping to be back on form very soon....
Have a good weekend!
Love and Hugs
