Flutter By Wednesday # 73

Let the month long birthday bash begin!!

For those of you who are new to Flutter By Wednesday's or haven't heard, I'm turning the big 4-0 on Friday and instead of moping about it, I decided to celebrate all month long with lots of fun here on Flutter By Wednesday's!

Each week there will be something to win and also fun guest designers!

To be entered in the blog candy for each week you will need to answer a question (answers can be found on my blog) and also create a card with the challenge of the week. Each blog candy will run for one week. I'm also allowing my flutter by team to enter the blog candy because I think they rock and they do this for fun~~ no free products so I thought I'd let them have a shot at the prizes too.

To start things off I want to introduce our guest designer for this week. It is none other than Christy Croll!! I just adore her work....which includes stamps for Stamping Bella--the Tiddly Ink line and also way too cute Huggabugg's plus she has an adorable Etsy store too. I must admit I'm still a bit starstruck by her talent.
I first started to get to know Christy last year around Christmas time when she left me a sweet comment on a card using one of her stamps from Stamping Bella. It totally made my whole Christmas as I am just little ol' me and she took the time to comment.
Throughout the year we have emailed a few times and such and I just adore this woman!! I was so honored when she designed my blog and now I'm even more humbled that she agreed to guest design for me. Without further rambling, here's the adorable image she drew for little ol' me for this special month.
Isn't it just the cutest?? I simply adore it!! There might be a chance later on in the month for a few of this image to be given away as line art/digi be sure to check back. Be sure to stop by her blog and leave her some love!!

Now for the blog candy for this week! Your challenge is to create a birthday card with a butterfly or fairy on it. Then leave a direct link to your creation in Mister Linky.(I reserve the right to remove any links not appropriate or linked to blogs vs. entries.) After you have left your link in Mister Linky, then leave a comment answering this question:
  • What is my favorite indulgance? You can find this answer somewhere in my blog posts for the last 2 weeks.
You have until next Tuesday night, Sept. 8th at midnight (Mountain time zone) to enter. I will announce the winner next Wednesday, Sept. 9th.
Now I bet you want to know what you could win~ right?'s a photo~

And a detailed list. I chose things from Susana's store that are some of my favorite products and Susana donated a few too!!

From Susana:
From me:
So what are you waiting for?? Go create a birthday card with a butterfly or a fairy on it and get entered to win some fun stuff!!

Don't forget to stop by my Flutter By Team (links on my sidebar) and leave them some love too!!

I will have my card to share tomorrow...this post was too long and well, it's my birthday and I'll do what I want to...LOL!

I am putting it in writing!! I will come play with you this week especially since I am admiring your positive energy or should I say I am feeding off of your positive energy in the hopes that it will pull me out of the "O dear Lord 40, are You sure because in Justine's brain, 40 is OLD" ;o) So bring on your SONshine mizz Danni, I need it.

Christine said...

I know the answer to the question (Dr. Pepper and Reece's Peanut Butter Cup) but now everyone that post behind me will also know. Or maybe you won't approve these messages. I guess that's what your doing, huh! I forgot that you use comment moderation!

Happy Birthday month!

Ooh Danni I think your favourite indulgence has to be choc chip cookies straight from the oven.
