The last FBW - for 2009 anyway!

Good Morning to you! I'm sorry for the lack of posts lately - I've been spending a lot of time with family and catching up with friends. I promise that I'll be posting more regularly shortly! TAC will be releasing a new Serendipity soon and I was able to get some of the stamps from that catalog. I'll be showing some sneak peaks starting with my creation today!

The Flutter By Challenge this week is an OPEN one - just remember to include a BUTTERFLY, FAIRY or ANGEL on your creation somewhere! After you finished with your creation, be sure to stop by Danni's blog and link it by using Mr. Linky!

For my creation I used Mojo Monday Sketch 119
On my card I used the new TAC stamp set Wonder & Joy that will be available starting February 1st. When I saw the image I knew I wanted to use one of my favorite paper lines, More Mimi with it. Below is my creation:

Isn't she just the CA-UTEST?!?! I just love her expression! As you can see the sketch has a flower in the right hand corner which I replaced with a butterfly. Instead of a cardstock strip, I went with ribbon. I was going to add a sentiment but figured I'd do that on the inside of the card. Here's a close up of the image:


Totally makes me smile - she's just so darn cute! What do you think? I hope you find time to play along. Be sure to stop by the other team members blogs to see their creation. And don't forget, next week we'll be debuting the new Flutter By Blog by having our own BLOG HOP! Plus we'll be introducing THREE guest designers in addition to our fabulous team! It's going to be a blast so be sure to mark your calendars for the celebration!

Today, my mother-in-law is arriving for a visit. It will be her first time visiting us in our new home and location. Plus we have all this snow and it snowed again last night so I'm sure she's in for a real treat. She's from Houston so I'm anxious to hear what she thinks.

Thanks so much for stopping by - have a terrific Wednesday!
