It's Flutterby Wednesday Again!!!

Happy Flutterby Wednesday!!

Is it really July already?? Wow, I can't believe it!! Well, I'm still behind, since I've had computer problems and blogger problems. I don't think I'll ever get caught up!! Anyhoo, our challenge this week at Flutterby Wednesday is actually a free week!! Yay!! The only things that you have to do is make your creation has a butterfly or a fairy image on. Just remember, it has to have a butterfly or fairy to qualify. This is really a great week to participate!! Our Guest Designer is the super talented Carolyn Bounds . Once you visit her blog, you'll know what I'm talking about. Her creations are so wonderful and her blog is so full of inspiration! Welcome to our little Flutterby family Carolyn!

For my card this week, I have used this wonderful image from Nutcrafters. She is from the summer collection and her name is Paddling Mac. If you haven't been to the Nutcrafters store yet, you should really go have a look around. There are lots of goodies to choose from. There are several Nutshells stamps that you should look at. Soooo cute!!! Isn't she the most adorable little thing!! I used the Mojo Monday sketch 93 from this week. Yay, I got 2 challenges done so far this week!!!

I colored her with my copics and used a white gel pen for highlights. I used a glaze pen on her barrette and the Penny Black butterfly on her hand to give that shiny dimension that I love. I cut my Cosmo Cricket papers with my nesties. I popped the sentiment and my main image up on pop dots. I attached flowers to the corner with Hero Arts gems in the right corner and in the flower center. I used a Martha Stewart gift tag for my Hero Arts sentiment. I colored the edge with my copics to give it some texture. I attached Dew Drops butterflies on the the tag. They are so sweet!! I think she turned out pretty cute!! I hope you like it.

We'd love to see you play along this week! Just make your project using a butterfly or fairy. If you post to SCS or PCP be sure to use the keyword FBW so we can find your beautiful creations. Be sure to visit Danni's blog to see any other details and for Mr. Linky. Be sure to check my sidebar and visit the other Flutterby divas to see their wonderful creations.

I can relate to the computer problems. I am on a friend's computer and not my own right now...Hang in there. I am trying to take my own advice. Technology you can't live with it and you can't live without it.
