LOTV DT -Things With Wings

Sorry for my long absence. I've been a lousy blogger and apologise to the DT's for being so quiet. This has been preposted as I'm flying out to Las Vegas today for a week. Will be visiting the Grand Canyon and a lot of Casino's so will not be around again for another week. Today we have a new challenge for you over at the LOTV Challenge blog. The theme this week is "Things with Wings". This weeks sponsor is "The Ribbon Girl". I have used one of the new releases called Garden of Wishes and coloured with Copics, dusting with Glamour Dust and added lots dots with a Rose coloured Viva Pearl Pen.
We had a brilliant holiday in Mauritius followed by the death of our grandmother. My mojo is not up to much. I've had a lot on my mind and have not stopped with one thing or another since we returned. I'd like to thankyou for all the lovely comments and thanks for being so caring, it means a lot.

So today being Thursday we will be spending 10 hours flying to Las Vegas and booking in at the Bellagio. A luxury suite will be awaiting us. The kids are at home with their nan so a few days to relax, have fun and spend, spend, spend.
Thanks for visiting my blog today, and see you in a week or so where hopefully I will feel refreshed, things will get back to normal and I will be my usual crafty self!
