Today is the day for another fortnightly challenge over at LET'S CRAFT & CREATE.  The theme this fortnight is "THINGS WITH WINGS".

I got my inspiration to make this card from Pink Petticoat.  They have released some really nice Birthday sentiments.  A must to check out.

After printing the sentiment on a blank piece of white card I blew the dust off my sewing machine and stitched around the edge and using 3d tape added this to the base.  The butterfly punch is a Martha Stewarts.  To finish off the card I added some self adhesive flat back pearls to each butterfly.

Take some time out of your busy lives and make yourself a cuppa and go on over to LETS CRAFT & CREATE and see the rest of the teams projects.  It would be great for you to enter and you may be the random winner to win a very sweet Papertrey Ink fillable frames # 6 Stamp Set.

Today I would like to share with you a canvas I made using a photo of my son on his motorbike.  I printed the photo onto tissue paper and then applied it to a canvas with Modge Podge.

I am really pleased how it turned out.

There is still time for you to enter our challenge over at Let's Craft & Create.  Challenge finishes on Wednesday 11.00am New Zealand time.

ANYTHING BUT A CARD is the challenge over at Let's Craft & Create this fortnight.  I love these types of challenges as it gives me a chance to show you other crafts I like to do.

I made this crochet teddy bear named Gracie.  She is made out of 4ply cotton and sits 3 1/2 inches tall.  I had alot of fun making her and hope to make more.

Take some time out of your busy day, make a cuppa and go on over to Let's Craft & Create and see the rest of the inspiration the design team have for you.  If you feel inspired join in the fun.
