Things With Wings

TGIF Friday is my favorite workday and my favorite release date too!  Totally PaperCrafts Challenge this Friday is for all of you flighty people out there.  Wendy is our "Hostess With The Mostest" this week and she wants to see things with wings. Now when I first saw the challenge I couldn't decide whether to use a fairy or an animal.  When I saw Digi Doodle Shop was sponsoring this week's challenge and Judy was giving the DT images to use I decided on this Old Water Pump.  I have long admired this image and never had the opportunity to use it.  I popped out some little butterflies and wallah I met the challenge.  Don't you just love the rustic simplicity of this image?  When I saw it I instantly thought it should be done in gingham checks.  I love gingham and couldn't decide which color to use, so I used 4 different colors ha ha.

I was determined to use a different card fold than the basic 1 fold.  How do you like the tri fold with the circle flap.  I am not sure if there is a proper name for this fold, but this kind of describes my card.  You should see the goodies my DT mates came up with.  They are so very talented, they keep me in awe every week.  Click here and see for yourself.  While you are there, find yourself a pair of wings and pop your design into the challenge.  You could be the  lucky winner of a $10 Gift Certificate at Digi Doodle Shop and believe me you will be lucky because there are sooooo many images over there for you to choose from.

The Totally Papercrafts Team is welcoming our newest DT member, Susan of Mix's Meanderings.  She is oh so talented.  I have had the best time snooping around her blog and seeing all of her fabulous designs.  Hop on over there and leave a little love for Susan this week.  You are in for a real treat on her yummy blog.

  12. I love the water pump digi. It would go perfectly with the country rocker on a porch stamp I have. I only made one card with it but you've inspired me to use it again.
