It's a Stormy Flutterby Wednesday!!!!!

Happy Flutterby Wednesday!!

I hope today finds you well and in a storm-free zone!!! I'm telling you we have been seriously in the tornado alley since this past Friday. There was a tornado just a few miles from my hubby's work on Friday afternoon. On Friday evening, we were under tornado warning several times that night. Saturday morning we got up to more tornadic storms and on Monday we had more all within a close distance from our house. ACK!! I'm terrified of storms and tornados are just so scary to me.

Ok enough therapy, our challenge this week at Flutterby Wednesday is actually a free week!! Yay!! The only things that you have to do to make your card is a Flutterby Wednesday challenge card is to use a butterfly or a fairy image on your creation. Just remember, it has to have a butterfly or fairy to qualify. This is really a great week to participate!!

Our Featured Stamper this week is Christine. She is super talented so be sure that you stop by her blog and leave her some luv!! Our Guest Designer is the super talented Mary Giemza !!! YAY!! 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 Mary!!

For my card this week I used some pretty K & Co. paper (love it!) and this adorable Magnolia sweetie. I stamped butterflies around her cute little head and stamped her (masked) with a Magnolia bench. I used a cute EK Success edge punch and scalloped scissors to create my two borders. I used my nesties to cut out Tilda. I used a big flower and brad by Bazzill alson with Bazzill cardstock to finish out my card. I used chalks to create the sky and grass in my little scene. I stamped the cute little black grass using an Our Craft Lounge stamp.

We'd love to see you play along this week! Just make your project using 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.

I'm surprised that we haven't had numerous tornado warnings or terrible thunder storms. (I'm knocking on wood here *smile*) Take care and I hope all is well!
