Current Challenges

Well after my card fairies got done playing tricks on me, I finally found my bird. So now I can get on with my challenge's.  I think the Hummingbird is one of God's most beautiful creation's.  I look forward to the spring when they arrive and love to watch them as they feed and play...Of course here in Ohio this is the time of year we see them leaving for warmer climate.  The wing I added as a reminder of the Angels who watch over us, they as well intrigue me so!

The items I used for my project was, Unknown paper's, Lace Hummingbird B194 from Cheery Lynn Designs, Mesh Hearts die B319 also from Cheery Lynn Designs. I love their dies because of the clean cuts. I also used my Butterfly Circle die from Spellbinders, the angel wing was a cut from an embossing folder from Tim Holtz Alterations. And I used watercolor pencils... I am entering my current card in challenges at:
  1. Chocolate, Coffee & Cards Challenges... Anything Goes
  2. House of Cards...Classic and Elegant
  3. Cheery Lynn Designs...Things With Wings
  4. The MoJo Monday ...Sketch Design 311
