Winging it

Hello blogworld

Aha double meaning there to the post - one as this is my DT card for the latest challenge over at Dream Valley and also as when this post appears (as I've scheduled this so am typing on Sat) I'll be winging it over at Emily's birthday party!

I think a party of 25 boys and girls from less than a year to 9yrs old calls for winging it from the parents!  Luckily the entertainer could do the full 2 hours - so a plus there!!

Anyway the theme this week is Things with wings over at Dream Valley - so anything with wings please.

The sponsor this time is:

and the prize is a $10 voucher

So what did I create?  (Lots of pictures here)  This!

 Opening up so you can see the surprise:

Internal gift box:

Phew! Pictures over.

I used:

Stamp:
Lili of the Valley - Little Dot 'Birthday Wish', coloured with my Pro and Flexmarkers

Dies:
Nesties
Shapeabilties

Paper:
Die Cuts with a View - The Garden Party

Anything else? Oooh yes!!

Ribbon and paper flowers from my stuff
Resin flower - My Crafty Heart
little heart - a free gift from Teresa at My Crafty Heart
stickles on her wings

I'm hoping that this has reached it's recipient in time so this post is not a surprise to her (but I'm not sure she'll be reading this today anyway).

I won't tell you what was put inside the little gift box, it was a bit silly (and I'm sure you'd laugh at me - hubby did) and I hope it got there OK without melting!!

So there you go - are you going to find some wings to enter the challenge, I do hope so!!

Cheerio
Sarah

A challenge, or two:

The Squirrel and The Fox: Challenge #20 - Make it Sparkle - Stickles on her wings / glitter on the paper.

Sarah this is gorgeous! I love the gift box card idea and your colouring is fab! I hope the party goes well! It sounds like it's going to be hectic! I guess you'll be having a large G and T or lovely glass (or two) of wine this evening!

Hugs!

Oh Sarah it is gorgeous!!!! I just got it today, but I have not been on line until now when I was looking to thank you!!! Of course the extra treat inside was a delight, but tell me who stops at one???? I wish had some of that will power hahaha! You really out did yourself and I appreciate your thoughtfulness!!! I guess turning 50 is not so bad with so many people offering such sweet wishes. Thanks again!!!
