Things with Wings

Good Morning All,

I hope you are all well and having a good week.  I have a card to share with you today for our new challenge over on Fab'n'Funky, but first of all I must tell you that this will be my last post for a while, I am taking some time off from my DT's as I have to have an operation on both my eyes to release the pressure of my Glaucoma, the first will be on Friday 14th and the second one about two weeks later and I don't think I will be up to crafting and blogging after these so am taking time off until October when I will hopefully be fully recovered and back to crafting.

Now back to our new challenge on Fab'n'Funky where this week the host is our lovely Debby with a challenge of:
