Time to fly!

Afternoon bloggers. it started off as a real wet morning as usual today so i got some crafting done, just in time for some more beautiful sunshine, so figured id take advantage so this update is coming to you from my garden :)

I specifically created this project for the challenge over at Cute Card Thursday where the theme was 'come fly with me'
Ive also entered at Simon says stamp  at Natalie and Amy and for NMWC 'Things with Wings'
I already had the most perfect Magnolia stamp ready to use so i coloured her first. I must admit, she was great fun to colour, the one seen below is actually my second attempt as my first one started to bleed a little on the shirt and as my standards start getting higher (lol) i decided to start over and im much more pleased with the results...

I also felt a change from cards would be perfect, so ive decided to start a mini project of Tagging some inspiration quotes and keeping them somewhere like a little tag book perhaps? im not sure, but i just love how this tag came together.

i used a lot of Tim Holtz distress inks here, to highlight the sentiments and some cats eye silver to highlight the tag itself. i gave her some bling to her wings in the form of stickles and cut the beautiful swirl with my portrait on some glitter cardstock, added a few delicated roses, again slightly highlighted with silver and there she is.

The quote is actually from the movie Peter Pan, and i love it! 'the moment you doubt weather you can fly. You cease forever to be able to do it'

I hope you enjoy
