Fluttering into 2011 with a HOP!

Whew it's great to be back! Welcome to our first Flutter By Wednesday Challenge of 2011!! To celebrate, we are having a blog hop! You should be arriving from the blog of one of our newest team members and fabulously talented, ANNA. If not, please go to the FBW Blog and start from the beginning...you won't want to MISS ANYTHING!!

The challenge is one of my favorites and I'm sure yours too...OPEN - anything goes as long as there is a butterfly, angel or fairy on it. For my creation, I'm trying to use some of my "old" things. I have TONS of digi's that I've either purchased or received as a freebie from all these wonderful artists out there and I haven't been using them. So I dug in my stash and found this little cutie from Pollycraft.

I used an old Friday Sketchers sketch for inspiration. I wanted to make the card shimmer and shine - plus according to my great friend, Danni you can NEVER have TOO much!

So nice to be creating a non Christmas card. I haven't created anything in quite a while. I'm slowly trying to find some inspiration to kick my mojo into gear. Honestly, I think what I'm craving is scrapbooking...creating pages again and documenting memories. I've ordered some pictures and they should be here soon so we'll see if that helps :D

I hope you've enjoyed my creation today. I'm also entering this into the Cute Card Thursday challenge #145 - create a thank you card. Now continue fluttering along the hop to Nancy's blog to see what she has in store for you today. Remember if you get lost just hop on over to the FBW blog where you'll see the complete hop list. I also want to welcome our new DT members - Anna, Jennie and Peggy to the team! I look forward to getting to working with these wonderful ladies!

Thanks for stopping by today! Just a little FYI that my posts may be a little scarce this week...We are taking a break at Softpencil for the month of January. Plus I go back to work today and was lucky enough to catch a nice stomach bug on Monday evening so I've been doing a lot of laying around. So I'm trying to play catch up on a few things...see ya soon though!
