Fussy and Fancy Challenge 131 - Things with Wings

Happy Friday
Fussy and Fancy followers!

Our challenge for the next
fortnight is hosted by our
very sweet and talented

Hey, it's Friday and time for a new Fussy & Fancy Challenge, the second one of 2015.
I am very excited to host this challenge, especially as it is being sponsored by Sweet Lilac Flowers and Fresh Brewed Designs. 

I have chosen a ‘Things with Wings’ as the challenge theme because it’s that time of year here in the UK when we are thinking about Spring arriving and the garden coming to life again after the Winter, in our garden that means the return of all my feathered friends.


I'm Annie, and I live in Bangor, North Wales. It is a very beautiful part of the country that lies between the mountains and the sea. I am now retired after many years working in retail as a customer service manager.

I have been creating in one form or another as long as I can remember, but nowadays it is mainly card making and altered art that keeps me occupied and amused. In fact, if I'm honest I do not know how I found time to go to work before I retired!

I hope you will be inspired by the beautiful work the Fussy and Fancy girls have done and will give this challenge a go!
