Flutter By Wednesday #16 & AMYRS65 Sketch

Happy Wednesday to you! Today I'm so freakin' excited to share some wonderful news. This week our guest designer is none other than Lauren Meader!! Have you seen her work?? I just love it and she also designs the Timeless Templates for PTI which I'm in love with!! They are awesome!! And if that wasn't enough, Jodi is the featured team member!! She is so nice and talented as well! Be sure to check out her blog to see her amazing creations!! Ok, on to my card - this week there was no specific challenge so we could do whatever we wanted as long as we used a butterfly or a fairy! Well, my friends, I used both! For my card I used Amy R.'s sketch #65 shown below:

cool sketch, huh? And here is my card:

See the sparkle??? Isn't she beautiful? I'm digging this image - and for those loyal readers out there I colored her hair blond - yep!! Can you believe it?? Normally I use brown just cause I'm used to those copic colors but today I dared to do something different. The image was given to me as a RAK from Kristie - Thanks so much! Can you see the little butterfly I added?

A few more things - if you want to play along just visit Danni's blog to leave a link to your creation. While you are there you'll need to check out her card - I'm sure it will be absolutely adorable as they always are!! To see the other team members cards, just visit their blogs which are on the right side of my blog!

I'm going to try and schedule some post while I'm out this week. Tomorrow is my surgery and even though I'm supposed to get out soon I probably won't feel like walking up and down the stairs to the computer for a few days :o). Thank you to everyone for your kind words - they mean a lot!

Thanks for stopping by and happy flutter by!

I am just now getting around to commenting on Flutter by from last week!!!

I am sorry I am so far behind!!!

I have been thinking about you and praying for you!!!

I enjoyed your long e-mail and wish I had had the time to e-mail you back before your surgery last week!!!

How are you doing???

I hope O.K. I remember after I had my Gallbladder out it took about 2 weeks to recover it might have been because I only had a 3 1/2 month old and was just getting over a c-section before they said I had to have my gallbladder out!!!

I feel for you girl and I hope you are doing better!!!
