Flutter By Anya

So the week is half way done and what have I accomplished - NOT a lot I tell ya!! Where or where does the time go? I have a to do list a mile long and I'm only getting like 3 things done - at this rate I'm never going to finish!! I leave next Thursday for seminar and haven't even got my trades done!!! Oh well - it seems that everything usually works just may be at midnight the night before, LOL!

Well since it's Wednesday it's time for another Flutter By card!! This week the challenge was an open one - we could do whatever we wanted as long as we used a Fairy or a Butterfly. I decided to use this CA-UTE image from The Greeting Farm.

Know what's so awesome about this card? I used SCRAPS - I LOVE it when I can do that!! And IMO I think it looks good - loving the purple and blue. It's a FUN color combo! I colored Anya with my Copics (hair and skin) as well as my colored pencils and OMS. I applied a little shimmerz to her wings but realized while taking this picture that I didn't put near enough on...going to go back over that one and really make those wing tips shimmer!

So whatcha think? Want to play along? Just stop by Danni's blog and leave a link to your creation so we can all check it out!! While you are there be sure to see what Danni has made and check out Christine's card as well since she's the featured team member. Christine is so nice and I am enjoying getting to know her and her style! Also, this week we have a guest designer - it's Mary Giemza. You can see her card on Danni's blog or her blog. As always, the other designers links are in my sidebar so be sure to stop by their blogs and see what they have created this week! I promise you won't be disappointed - this is one talented design team!!

Thanks for stopping by!

How wonderful is this!!! Girl I am so sorry I have not been by much lately I have not been anywhere on blogs lately!!!

I was sorry to hear about your Grandma how are you doing now???

I only need like 2 or 3 more hours in each day so I can have time to comment on all my wonderful team mates blogs more often like I used to be able to do!!!

I want to say maybe once school starts my time will be more enabling for comments, but then again I do not want to wish away any moments with my preacious 3 kiddo's either!!!

I do really miss coming by often though and I hope you know it is not because I do not want to come by!!!

I love all your creations and I wish I could leave comments on each and every one of them!!!!

Your creativity is awesome Michelle!!!
