Firefly Crafts Challenge #1

Hello everyone, Firefly DT Jammie here, welcome to The Forest!  Firefly Crafts is pleased to invite you to participate in our very first challenge!

The winner will be announced on the 3rd Wednesday of each month when we announce our new challenge.  Each month we will have a different prize or gift card from our store. The winner will be chosen via Random.org. Good luck to all of you Fireflies! 

So, without further adieu, here is the FireFly Crafts challenge for June:

This months' challenge is: Anything with wings!

This could mean a Firefly, a Bird, a Fairy, a Dragon, a Butterfly, an Airplane, basically anything that you can think of that flies!
