ASFOS ~ STITCHING & Our (I mean Mackenzie's) new additions!

Good morning,
Check here for my candy
Hope you are having good weather wherever you are. 
We've just got back from a week down south & it was lovely weather,
We came back late Friday night & then went to pick up Mackenzie's guinea pigs on Saturday.
I have to keep reminding myself that they are Mackenzie's! 
I was soooo excited when we went to get them,
they are so sweet & just starting to come out from hiding themselves away LOL
Anyway, moving on to the real reason I am here!
This week at A spoon full of sugar we would like to see some 


It can be real or faux.
I made a card for Darren's birthday a couple of weeks ago, 
He just loves old aeroplanes, especially anything from WWII
I have used,
Hobby Arts ~ Fly past available here
Nestabilities ~ Classic circles
Bo Bunny ~ Time piece
SU ~ Corner punch & Twine
Doohickey ~ Swirl
Tim Holtz ~ Clock
Cotton Scrim
Our sponsor this week is

Hi Fleur and thanks so much for your kind comment on my blog. I *love* this card and I bet your hubby did too. All that amazing stitching and texture, the fab image, and that quote is brilliant - what is the source?
Oh, and your guinea pigs are SO adorable. I also have a daughter who has pet guinea pigs and they are a constant source of joy.
