Things with wings at Fab'n' Funky

 Good morning, it's time for a new challenge at Fab'n' Funky, my turn to host this fortnight - I chose the theme of Things with Wings, a chance to play with my lovely Lavinia stamps and stencils. As you can see it's a very simple design using the double stencil technique (apologies for the tipsy photo!) a fairy stamp and a sentiment. There's plenty more to see over at Fab'n' Funky - my lovely teamies have created some beautiful cards- as always.

We got back from our holiday yesterday- it was a very long day -up at 4 am to catch our flight so I'm still feeling a bit tired today, although it was lovely to sleep in my own bed. We had a wonderful time, visited some beautiful places - and enjoyed the sunshine (except for Monday, our last day when it rained most of the day!) We met some lovely people too- everyone on our tour was so friendly. 

Marvin was very good for our sitter, which was a huge relief. She said her missed us and needed lots of cuddles- his cuddles are very enthusiastic and a bit rough but she didn't mind! He gave us a very enthusiastic welcome yesterday!!!

Thanks for visiting today

Gorgeous card Chris. Wonderful blends of blues and greens and I must look up the double stencil technique as it looks so pretty. Happy to hear you had a good vacation but most of all that Marvin was a good boy. xx
