Welcome to another wonderful challenge here at 

Crafting When We Can

Our challenge is "Whimsical with Wings" and we are sponsored by 

Aurora Wings

They have kindly given me this cute image called Whimsical Ladybug Sprite.  I know most ladybugs are red and black however I wanted to do some fall colors because she looks like she is part pumpkin.  I pulled out my Fall & Halloween papers from DCWV and found these lovely metallic papers.  I couldn't decide so I sent a picture to my sister and let her pick.  I just love this pack.

I used some Glastique on the body and flower she's holding and Wink of Stella on her head and wings but I just couldn't get the shine to show.  So here is a closeup so you can see the shine.

Alicia is enjoying her time at college and doing well...even though I'm a mess.  I miss my baby so very much but I'm thrilled she's doing well.  I can't wait till the first break so she can come home.   I've got to wait all the way to December.  Don't know if I can make it but I'll try.

I hope you will join us for the challenge at CWWC and make sure to check out all the DT creations.  They are FABULOUS!

This is just adorable Robin and especially in the lovely warm Autumnal colours.

Thank you for your kind words about the injections, I am not sure what type I am having this time round, but as you say so long as it keeps us mobile - and crafting of course.

Enjoy your Sunday.

This is gorgeous. Wonderful colour combination and I love all the different embellishments you used. Those dragonflies are beautiful and those pearls around the image and the beautiful flowers are a perfect finishing touch.
