Flutter By Wednesday #52

One year of doing Flutter By Wednesday's! Wow!! So fun!! I'm so happy that more and more people are joining in each week! I just love seeing other's creations!

Be sure to check out last week's post and go visit those that entered in the challenge using Mr. Linky!

This week was a "free" week meaning there was no specific challenge except to use a butterfly OR this is the first week that fairies are allowed!! I'd love to have you play along! Just create a card or project with a butterfly or fairy and then upload the link to Mr. Linky. Or if you upload to a gallery like SCS or PCP, please use the keyword, FBW.

This week's guest designer is Lynn Put from The Queen's Scene. I just love Lynn's work and was so happy when she agreed to be a guest designer. She is just the sweetest person too! Be sure to stop by and say hi to her on her blog! Here's her gorgeous creations for this week~

Our featured team member this week is Cassie! She blows me away each week with her wonderful creations. Be sure to leave her some love on her blog too! Here's her wonderful creation, a memo board! Be sure to check out her blog for close up shots of this beauty!!
Don't forget to check out all the other team members creations and leave them some love!


And here's my card for the week. I was so excited when Nancy sent me this card and some images to play with! Fun!!
Annabelle helped me pick some of the colors for this card. I was a bit worried as her choice of outfits today was a bit, umm, different. Purple striped shirt, red striped pants, yellow socks. Gorgeous, no?
I was also impatient and didn't wait for the Smooch ink and the stickles to dry. I tried to cut it and well, smeared it. I was late in getting this done so I just left it and tried to distract from it. Sigh, lesson learned, be patient!

card size: 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
stamps: image from RAK , TAC Butterfly Swirls-inside
paper: DCWV All Dressed Up stack,
ink: VersaMagic Aquatic Splash, VersaMagic Ocean Depth
others: prismacolors, OMS, Azure Smooch, pixie dust shimmerz, stardust stickles, sizzlit photo corner die, black metallic dew drops, silver geo shaped sparklers, stardust pen

One more little thing....I'm looking for two more flutter by team members. If you're interested, send me an email letting me know why and also a link to your blog. I have a few people in mind but wanted to see if anyone was interested.

Somehow I didn't get Flutterby on my list last week. I don't see any reason I can't do it this week because I always have butterflys. Actually, I just posted one with butterflys but I don't like it much so I'll do something else.


Kristie said...

Lynn & Cassie's creations are awesome too!

I can't believe it's taken me a year but I finally created something for your challenge and look forward to playing weekly!!! Love your card and pic of Annabelle.

Michelle said...

WhooHoo one year of flutter by's - you've come a long way baby!! Your card is awesome - love the picture of Annebelle. Kids have the cutest since of fashion and what's funny is everyone thinks how cute it is. BUT if they try that at 16 I can pretty much guarentee they'll come home crying cause somebody said something rude to them. Wish we could keep that innocence forever!!

Anyway, Love all the cards & creations.

Chris Olsen, Glowbug said...

Beautiful!!! Love both your creations but I would love to know how you did the second!! Congrats on one year Danni!

Nicola said...

Congratulations Danni on your 1st Anniversary of Flutter By´s - today is our wedding anniversary so I shall raise my glass to you. Fantastic card - I do so adore butterflies and hope to make a start on a card for this challenge tomorrow. What a sweet child Annabelle is - you must be so proud.
I must thank Maria because I found your blog on hers.
God Bless you both. -x-
