Wings and Things



Yet another scheduled post and today we should be in Athens before sailing overnight to Turkey where we will visit the ancient city of Ephesus and the temple of Artemis which is one of the ancient Seven Wonders of the World, then the following day we sail to the beautiful Greek island of Santorini.

It's time to share my DT card for FlonzCraft Vintage Stamping Challenges where this month our theme is 'Wings and Things'. Lots of lovely inkiness here with a background of Dylusions pure sunshine, cut grass and turquoise. Next I  stamped Flonz butterfly corner around the sides, embossed in gold and added aged gold frantage around the edges. Old favourite TH caged bird makes another appearance and this is also randomly embossed with Frantage and finally three Flonz butterflies and words which are from the dream Stamp Addicts set.

Thank you for taking a peep, see you all soon.
