Fly with Me....

Its Saturday!!  So what are you up to today?  We have got a lovely day to look forward to today as my bestest friend Robyn and her husband Peter are going up to Derby with Mike and I to meet my Mum and Dad and spend the day together.  I know Robyn is missing her Mum as she is back home in South Africa so she can have an adopted Mum :)

I had another play with my watercolour pencils and this is what I came up with.

Image is Penny Black - Fly with Me - I have added some very subtle colour to the background using chalks which doesn't really show in the photo.
The paper is from K & Company
Border Punches from Martha Stewart and EK Success
Ribbon - Papermania
Sentiment - Ladybug Crafts - Shoes n Bags Stamp Set

I would like to enter this into the following challenges
The Fuzzy Wuzzy Challenge - Get Punchy
Paper Pretties - Use an Animal on your Card
Crafty Purple Frog - Summer Fun

Hope you all have a lovely day whatever you get up to.
See you all tomorrow for Christmas Card Club Card.
