Open Flutter By Challenge

Hi! Today is another Flutter By Wednesday and this week our challenge is an OPEN one! This means you can do/make ANYTHING as long as it has a BUTTERFLY, FAIRY or ANGEL on it!!

My card would be perfect to use scraps on. The pattern papers measure 1 1/4" x 4". The butterfly was cut using my Cricut and then embossed in my Cuttlebug. I took my New Canvas Palette pad and swiped the top of the butterfly to bring out the swirls. I, like so many of you out there, are just hoping and waiting for Spring to come. This is my happy spring card - pinks, greens, yellows; butterflies and flowers; Screams Spring to me!!

I hope you get a chance to play along this week. We've had so many awesome participants! The creations are amazing!! If you decide to join us, just visit the Flutter By Wednesday Blog for all the details. Don't forget - you can find more inspiration from the wonderful and talented DT...their links are on my sidebar!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I know I've mentioned quite a few times about being sick and you can stop reading now if you want. I just have to say that the other Preschool teachers warned me that I'd have a tough year being around so many kids. Boy were they right! I just got off another round of antibiotics and today my ear was hurting. To put more fuel on the fire, three children threw up (or was about to) one of which was in my classroom. Usually within 24 hours I'll know my verdict - I'm hoping this time it will be good cause I can honestly say I'm SICK of being SICK!! Ok you may returned to your regularly scheduled program - and thanks for listening :o)
