It's Flutterby Wednesday Again!!

I can't believe it's Flutterby Wednesday again!! Where does the time go??

Today, Hubby and I get to go to school for Brittany's Awards Day!! I'm so excited and proud. I know she is going to bring home at least one award!! I'll have to let you know how she did and share a pic or two with you. Ok, time to focus!!

Our challenge this week was to use at least 2 different designer papers and use a fairy or butterfly on our project. Our guest designer this week is the super talented Jodi Collins. You should go check out her work at http://www.stampingalatte.blogspot.com/. You'll find some really great stuff and we're glad to have her this week!! Our featured stamper this week is Stef.

For my card this week, I used Doodlebug patterned paper and Bazzill cardstock. I also used this adorable new Magnolia stamp from the Chasing Butterflies collection that I got from Summer at Roses on Paper. Thanks Summer!! I think this image is just the sweetest!!

I colored my image with my copics, painted on some Shimmerz and used a white Inkessentials gel pen that I got from my good friend, Susana over at Susana's Custom Art and Card Designs. I also cut my yellow and pink dotted (Bo Bunny) cardstock with my nesties that I also got from Susana. If you haven't been to her store, you have to go. She has the most amazing selection of all things paper crafting including copics and nesties. She also carries some of the cutest stamps out there!! I cut out my image and popped it up with pop dots. I also used pop dots on my yellow cardstock. I embossed the yellow piece with my Cuttlebug embossing folder and inked the edges with pink ink.

My sentiment is a Sugar Nellie stamp. I inked the edges of my sentiment, put a tiny little Prima flower in the center along with a tiny jewel. I put some yellow flowers on my card that I had in my stash. I inked the edges with pink ink and put a little bit of Stickles on the "pearl" in the center. I cut a small flourish with my Sizzix Sizzlet die and put it around the flowers. I used Stickles to add some bling to them and make them pop. IRL they are super glittery!

This was a really great challenge. We'd love to see you play along this week! Just make your project using at least 2 different patterned papers and a butterfly or fairy. Remember, it must include a butterfly or fairy. If you post to SCS or PCP be sure to use the keyword FBW so that we can find your beautiful creations. Be sure to visit Danni's blog to see any other details. Be sure to check my sidebar and visit the other Flutterby divas to see their wonderful creations.

Love the papers you used Cathy, and I really love your coloring.

You did a great job on the challenge. I hope the awards day went well, and I really hope Brittany had fun!!!

Piper's School here ends at 3rd grade. One grade school goes K-3rd and then they move to another grade school for 4th - 6th so the end of 3rd grade will be hard for me here. She is just finishing 1st grade and last night I video taped her talking about what 1st grade and Kindergarten were like and she talked about how she is half way done with Union Valley Elementary and how that makes her sad and I did not even know she had those feelings at all!!!

Wow they can blow you away!!!


Jodi said...

Fabulous card Cathy - love the stickle bling on the swirls and the flowers you used :0)

I'm currently waiting for a box of goodies to fly across the Atlantic from Susana's shop - including some of the new range of stamps and a couple of nesties. Away from home for the weekend and hoping the parcel may have arrived when I get back :0) Hadn't realised I wasn't already a Follower on your blog, have put that right now!!!
