Winter Flutter By Wednesday

Good Afternoon - sorry I'm a little late with this post. Are you ready for Thanksgiving tomorrow? I was out late last night doing my grocery shopping so I could stay home today and get the house cleaned, start the cooking/baking and do my FBW card! I knew what I wanted to do but it didn't come out EXACTLY how I imagined but I'm pleased still the same.

I got some new Cuttlebug Embossing folders from HSN and fell in love with the snowflake one. It's even a bigger size which I'm SO LOVING...hope they do more like that! Anyway, I embossed the snowflakes and then swiped my white New Canvas Palette pad over the snowflakes. Not sure you can see it but it just gives a little bit of color. This week I had to use my Swiss Pixie - isn't she cute...she's definitely ready for the winter weather! I colored her with Copics, colored pencils and OMS and added my Stardust Clear Gelly Pen for wing and snowflake highlights.

The challenge this week is to use A FAIRY, BUTTERFLY or ANGEL along with CIRCLES on your creation. That's where I ran into a little trouble - adding circles. SO I did a half circle by the image with the ribbon and then rounded the corners of the snowflake piece. Also if you look there are circles on the ends of my snowflakes so I've got some circles, lol! I love the purple and blue color combo, especially for winter cards. Here's a close up of my image:

With Thanksgiving being tomorrow, I'm sure a lot of us are pretty busy! I know that some of the Flutter By girls weren't able to post a project but still stop by all the blogs and leave us some love. It means so much to us, to hear from all of you - makes being a part of this team so special! Also, I hope you find a moment or two that you might be able to join in the challenge. Just stop by Danni's blog to link your creation once you do!

I know first hand that time can slip away so please this holiday take a moment to tell that person how much they mean to you and give as many hugs as you can! I know how wonderful a hug can feel/mean when I get them! Have a wonderful Wednesday and thanks so much for stopping by!
