First challenge of 2017 at Let's Craft and Create

Good morning,

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday time and are full of energy for the coming year. We have had such hot weather and quite high humidity some days, so the energy levels are not very high at the moment.

Today is the first challenge of the year at Let's Craft and Create and the theme this month is "Things with wings"...I think 2017 has flown in so fast that it is quite an apt choice. The DT have created such amazing projects, so please hop over and see what they have for inspiration.


For my card I used some  paper that I had made last year with my inks and watercolour paper. This is my last biggish piece, so maybe need to get going on some more of that, it is great fun to do.

The butterfly is an old stamp...one of my first stamps from a local complany. Stamped it twice and cut out and raised the second one. Added gold glitter.

The sentiment was a free stamp from a magazine some time back.
Finished it off with pearls and a bow.





Will enter the following challenges:

Crafty Creations #332...Anything goes
Inspiration Destination #119...Anything goes
Word Art Wednesday #264/265...Anything goes
Wonderful Wednesday ...Anything goes

I wish you all an amazing week and hope you are still in a fairly relaxed mood. Take care and see you soon.

Love Ursula
