DT post for The Crafty Pad.

Good morning all! I'm scheduling this post for Sunday morning so I hope everything works out ok. The week has rolled around again - where does the time go? - and its time for a new challenge over at The Crafty Pad here. If you entered last week be sure to check back around Thursday for the winners and top 5 - there weren't many entries last week but they were all really fabulous!

So this week we have the theme chosen by Debbi - as Things with Wings. If you check over at the Crafty Pad site there is lots of inspiration from the ladies on team B. Before I show you my card I should tell you that we're sponsored by Joanna Sheen's online site for this challenge to the tune of a £10 voucher!

So here's what I've got for you today - its a telescopic card that I was inspired to make by Diane - a member of the Crafty Pad team A - she did one here and in her post she links you to a tutorial on telescopingcard here.

Its called a telescopic card and its got three parts - you don't need to use circles - but I think that works well with the idea of a telescope. The Crafty Pad image is Fairy Chloe that you can get here. I've also used some hunky dory papers, a LOTV circular sentiment stamp and some WOC roses.

I'd like to enter this card for the following challenges:

Poodles Parlourthepoodlesparlour: Anything Goes
southerngirlschallenge: Angels and Fantasy
deepoceanchallengeblog: Fantasy World.
disdigidesignschallenge: Mystical creatures
crafty-emblies: Flora and fauna

I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday and hopefully I'll be back tomorrow with something a little different!

Big Hugs and thanks for any comments you leave and also for visiting!
