Spread Your Wings @ Ladybugs

Good Morning blogland, I hope you're all as excited as me - they have forecast some warm, sunny weather! yeah - not before time!

Speaking of time  - it just flies lately and I'm back already with a new challenge at


and this week our super lovely Pinky may have moved on to pastures new but not before leaving us with this theme

Anything With Wings

Bit of a no brainer for me this week as the only LCI image
I could possibly use for this is Cupcake Ruby!
not too sure whats going on with my photography skills cos in real life these are all pretty much the same colour - certainly don't look it here! Click HERE to access Ruby at LCI shop.
Head over to the main challenge blog for all the details of this challenge and while you're there check out some fab inspiration from all the Ladybugs.

Bit of a quick post for me today I've lots to do!!

Thanks for stopping by, I'll be back tomorrow with my Diva's DT post
Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
Sweet Stampin' - Faeries & Angels
Crafts 4 Eternity - Wonderful Wings
Poodles Parlour - Monochromatic
The Crazy Challenge - 3D

Kathleen said...

Fabulous card, great choice of colours and the colouring is brilliant, I would run a mile if I had to colour this image, that's why I do a lot of paper piercing, can't colour.
Like the way you refer to time flies, when the challenge is 'wings'.
Seems like your camera is related to mine!!!
