Flutter By Wednesday & High Hopes Challenge

Whew, do I have a lot to tell you today! First off, thanks for dropping by and welcome to another wonderful Flutter By Wednesday!! So much to talk about - I'm so thankful for being a part of this team and all the wonderful things that keep occurring! I'm so happy to announce that starting in JANUARY, Flutter By Wednesday's will have a new home! That's right - our very own blog!! Go there now and become a follower so you don't miss anything!!

This week I'm so EXCITED about our guest designer - it's MERCY!! I've played along with some of her wonderful sketches and her work is so inspirational! Please stop by and take a look at all of her fabulous creations!

As far as team members go - this week we say goodbye to Taylor. We wish her well and look forward to her participating next year! We also say hello to Kimberly - welcome to the team and we look forward to seeing your wonderful Flutter By Designs!

The challenge this week is an open one - anything goes EXCEPT you HAVE TO HAVE A BUTTERFLY, FAIRY or ANGEL on the card! So come on folks, get your stuff out and play along! Stop by Danni's blog to link your creation using Mr. Linky! Ok on to my card - this week I changed it up a bit and went with bright colors and a brand new stamp. I was fortunate to receive a gift certificate for Christmas early from a dear, dear friend (YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE) and I chose this stamp, Little Missy from High Hopes Rubber Stamps.


I decided to play along with High Hopes Challenge which is a sketch (gotta love those sketches). So this card is also my entry into the High Hopes Challenge #55 (whohoo for me - two challenges in one week....don't fall down, I know it's shocking!). I just love the colors I used - here is a close up of Little Missy herself:


SO whatcha think? She's adorable isn't she! So bright and cheerful - just makes me smile! I hope she brings you a little joy today! Thanks so much for stopping by!!
