Flutter By - Summer Style

Happy Wednesday - whew this week is flying by!! I have to tell you it's been HOT here - in the upper 90's with heat index into the 110 - 115. Heat advisory the last 3 days and I'm SOOOOO ready for it to end! I keep asking myself why we don't have our pool up - I mean this would be the days that I'd be living in water!! What's really tormenting is taking Abby to swim lessons and watch her in the water while I'm sitting in the sun just wishing I could jump right in with her!!

So today our challenge on the Flutter By team was issued by Kimmie - we are supposed to make an outdoorsy card using either a butterfly or fairy. I decided to use Mojo Monday week 92 sketch for my card.


I didn't stamp anything (except the sentiment) and all the papers are from the DCWV Blossoms & Butterflies stack. Now I arranged my papers (subconsciously) like this - green on the bottom (grass), blue on the top (sky) and I matted in yellow (for the sun). Pretty neat huh? Me thinks I'm a genius, lol! The papers have glitter on them so it's a really pretty card in person!

Be sure to drop by Danni's blog to check out her card and to play along. Just link your creation using the Mr. Linky tool so we can all check out your creation. Last week I checked out some of the participants cards and whooweee they were pretty! Can't wait to see what you do this week! Also, stop by the other DT's blogs to see their outdoorsy card and thank Kimmie for a wonderful challenge!

Stay cool and thanks for stopping by!!

Now who´s a clever girl then? I sure racked my brains over this Michelle and here you are with a proper crafters mind. How ingenious to take the grass, sky and sun this way. It is soooo hot here too so I can sympathise but luckily we keep our pool open all year round but don´t use in winter months. Much cheaper to clean than empty and refill.
Have a lovely cool dip in the water sweetie.
Hugs,

Super cute! I have this paper, and it is very pretty! I really like how you did the butterfly pattern paper. I never think like that, and just use paper, instead of popping on an image.
