FBW # 236

It's time for another Flutter By Wednesday Challenge but before I get to that I thought I'd share some news!

Sam found out Monday that he will be separating from the army due to him being in the overweight program twice. While this means he won't get his retirement, it is happy news to us as he has been miserable the last few years.

We will be starting a new adventure towards the end of the summer as we start our fresh, new military-free lives in Omaha, Nebraska! We are all so excited and happy for this!!

I know some people are saying Omaha?? why Omaha. Well, several reasons~
  • more centralized
  • closer to most of our family
  • one of my most favorite zoos--important since I want to work at a zoo when I grow up
  • lower cost of living
  • we really enjoyed Omaha when we visited there
Onto what you came here for~~ it's time for a new Flutter By Wednesday Challenge!! Be sure to visit the blog to see how you can play along and to see the Flutter By Team's wonderful creations!

This week our challenge is to use a sentiment on the front of your creation along with your butterfly or fairy!
Don't fall over...there's no coloring on my card today!From Millan.Net 

For my layout I used an older sketch from Mojo Monday.

We're half way through the week--hope yours is and continues to be fabulous!

No coloring, but it's Simply Fabulous! My husbands cousin started working at a zoo when a move forced her to give up her journalism job. She has since become a zookeeper and loves every minute of it. Good luck!

Hi Danni
Looks like more moving ahead of you but for a very good reason. No point being miserable when one can take a different direction in life and feel much happier.
Love your bright and cheerful card you made. Gorgeous butterfly and sentiment too.
