Flying high with STAMPlorations

Hello I am delighted that all the challenges over at STAMPLorations resume today after Shery's little "Winter" break. I am part of the Theme and Sketch team but just for the first month back there will be no sketch, just the theme, "Things with wings" which is running across all the design team challenges. All you need to do to join is is create something with wings...simples! During May there are also fun blog hops and linky parties.
You can find all the details here
There are certainly lots of things with wings down at the ponds. The ducks are pairing up with mates
and I spotted on the other side a single duckling with it's Mum and Dad!
How woolly is he? 
Everyone was enjoying the sunshine


I decided that despite there being no sketch that I would use an old sketch and used this one from way back in May 2015
My stamps I used are
 Trendy Birds 2 

and "You're forever my friend" from
Fond expressions 2
I used some snippets of card and book pages and added some bird flight stamping.
I decided to use Kraft as my base card. I also stamped and embossed the birds and fussy cut some out. I stamped the sentiment directly onto my card.

Here it is/ I love the trendy bird set, it is in my Top 3 of Shery's amazing stamps. The sentiments from fond expressions work so well too. 


You can find all the details of the challenge here. We would love for you to join in with the fun. You do not need to use STAMPlorations stamps to enter either.


Thanks so much for stopping by today. Enjoy the bank holiday weekend, the weather is looking really super (for a change!)

Back soon,

Bye for now,
