~ all about WINGS ~


HIYA chickies! whoa..am i late posting this! i've been up island since yesterday and just arrived home this evening! had to take dh to another appointment ~ let me tell ya ~ that was a long drive and a long appointment! sure am glad to be home and settled back in again! i certainly don't want to drive anywhere for the next few days...i'm beginning to see lines! ACK! anyhoo ~ it is my week to choose the theme over at SCD this week ~ and i choose WINGS! i sure hope you can pop on over and join in the fun chickies! the dt has done up some fabulous ATCs ~ so come on over a check it out! also, we have our very 1st sponsor! WHOHOO! i'm so stoked! june from designworld has so kindly offered to be our first sponor and there's a lovely prize to be had if ya join in the fun! how exciting is that! AND ~ chriss rollins ~ is still our quest designer ~ and what fabulous work that chickie creates! for my atc i was inspired by the lil pic on the side of my blog ~ the quote ~ "WE ARE EACH OF US ANGELS WITH ONLY ONE WING AND WE CAN ONLY FLY BY EMBRACING ONE ANOTHER." the background of my atc was distressed with tim holtz inks ~ i then cut, stamped and used rubons for all the wording (with a lil help from dh...what a guy!) ~ whoa...that took quite a while doing some of those letterz..one by one! the image is handcut ~ as is the stamped wing. to give a 3D effect the butterflies were handcut ~ with folded forward wings. i handcut the rose for placement ~ then put on modpodge for a rough ~ shine ~ and added the ribbon for a final touch! well..that was a quick post ~ ACK ~ i really dislike being late! ok...i promise that won't happen next week! big hugz chickies ~ hope you have a rawkin scrappin happy week!
