Give me wings

Hello blog friends, it's a bright and sunny Sunday morning here and I've had some inspiration after my little check of the blogs I follow.  I was inpsired by Less is More, although I struggle with the whole CAS concept and keep wanting to add detail, this week Chrissy and Manda are challenging us to use Diecuts and Punches.

I've recently added some new dies to my collection.  I see it as an investment in tools and I always try to ensure that the ones I purchase are ones that I will get a lot of use out of, not just use ones and leave in my folder.  I've used a Marianne Craftable butterfly here along with some Nesties for the lable.

Flutter By Wednesday is Anything with Wings and of course I love linking up to Make It Monday where the challenge is open and you can even link to previous posts that you did but want to feature again.

I've used some paper I made ages ago with the Shaving Cream techinque.  Island Indigo and Wisteria Wonder card from SU and some gorgeous white pearlised card.  And of course bling in the form of pearls.

Thanks for stopping by.  I'm off to the craft room again, I found some more inspiration!
