Wings...

Hello everyone.  I’m delighted you’ve stopped in to have a look at my card for Craft Dee BowZ.  This month, Craft Dee BowZ has partnered with The Graphics Fairy which is an amazing source of fabulous, free digital images.  If you have never checked this site out, run, don’t walk!  I have created a card using one of their ballerina images…she has wings!…

Happy crafting and I’ll be back soon~

Sending you blessings and ((hugs)),
