Tag you're it... Wings

Chris and I have just spent a fabulous 24hrs crafting our likkle hearts out with very little sleep taking place.

This tag is for the Tag You're It challenge this week and is one of the pieces that I finished...Can't tell you what Chris created but I will say one of them has loads of lovely lace and both of them have lots of pearls and stamping..keep an eye out for them on her blog...they are stunning.

Now back to my tag, the paper used is one of Cosmo Crickets the stamp is from Karen at Scrapz (paperartzy) along with the German metal wings.

I tried 'dooooood-ling' without my glasses...'cos I've lost them and waiting for my new ones, I couldn't see properly... hence a bit untidy... but never mind I'll do better next time LOL.

I also created a gorgeous holder for wine using even more of the fab Cosmo Cricket papers however thats for a later post as I have challenge Chris to make one too she has just 2weeks to complete it.
Thank you for stopping by this week it means alot to us.

Have a great weekend.
