Flutter By Wednesday meets Saturday Spotlight

Good morning folks, I hope you are all well. I can´t believe we are half way through yet another week, it will be Christmas before I know where I am.
Today sees the start of a new challenge at Flutter By Wednesday and Danni would like us to think of Winter whilst creating, now how easy is that at this time of year! Remember as always you have to use a butterfly, fairy or angel on your project.
We are on the Countdown to moving to our New Home in the New Year, don´t forget to follow us to continue playing along.
I am combining my card with Saturday Spotlight whom have set the theme of Chritmas Flowers.


I am sharing hubby´s latest project with you too, yes he pinches part of my craft room but it is so nice to work away together in harmony. This is a scaled model of the King of the Mississippi, what do you think???




Be sure to stop by the other Flutter By Team members blogs to see their fab creations and leave them some love too!! Their links are on my sidebar and also on the new blog!
