Hey there, Chickadee - FBW

Okay I'll admit, I'm a little late with this post today BUT it's before midnight so technically it is still Flutter By Wednesday!! This is the last week of Danni's month long celebration. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE that made this celebration such a success. I know Danni's enjoyed giving away the fabulous blog candy and we've all loved seeing the different creations! Be sure to stop by Danni's blog and link your creation and get registered for the giveaway! So what's the challenge you ask - it's to use sapphire - either the color or bling - along with a fairy or butterfly.

For my creation I reached for my C.C. Design Swiss Pixies again - they are just so cute and fun to color.

I'm not sure what it is but I adore this card - I love the soft colors and the blue bling. Plus the saying is just perfect - something I'd definitely say! I paper pieced the pixies dress and boots. I added Crystal Stickles to the wing - I have to admit this is the one bottle of Stickles I use the most. I love that I can use whatever color I want and then add shine without ruining my color choice. I have like 3 bottles of it on hand!! The paper used was Chatterbox - love the designs and soft colors. Below is a close up of the pixie...

So whatcha think? Do you likey? Be sure to check out the other design team members blogs to see their wonderful sapphire creations. While visiting Chris be sure to tell her HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Also, welcome back Kristie and Taylor to the team - glad you're back girls!! Last but certainly not least is our guest designer this week - it's Anna and I'm sure you've seen her blog before. If not, stop by now! She is one talented and super sweet gal who I have had the pleasure to get to know. She's the one who has enabled my fairy doodle obsession!!

Quick update on me - still trying to adjust to working outside the home. Preschool is going good - the kids are darling! I've had the opportunity to sub in the 3 and 4 yr old rooms and have been rewarded each time. The laughter, smiles and comments that kids say just warms my heart. I feel blessed to have stumbled upon this opportunity and look forward to what is still to come. I think I'm starting to get the hang of things and hope to be back on a regular schedule here. With the holidays coming and all the craft shows I've signed up for I've got to get creating!

Thanks for stopping by!
