Flutter By Wednesday #54

Happy Flutter By Day! So glad that you stopped by!

Be sure to check out all the wonderful creations entered in last week's challenge! You can see them here! (at the bottom of the post in Mister Linky)

This week's challenge was another open week so anything goes as long as it has a butterfly or fairy on it!! Please enter a direct link to your creation in Mister Linky so we can see it and if you upload to SCS or PCP, please use the keyword FBW. Also a little side note, you can enter a creation all week long, not just on Wednesday's!! I have had some questions about that so thought I'd answer it so everyone knows!

Before I introduce this week's very special guest designer, I have to share a little something. At the beginning of the year, I chose a word that I wanted to describe how I thought of myself in this new year. That word was confidence. I've worked on this a little here and there and really, I am much more confident than I have been in the past.

That being said, it was that confidence that allowed me to finally step up and ask Lauren Meader if she'd be a guest designer for me. Of course I asked when she was swamped, had her surgery, and all that jazz~~can we say bad timing? But regardless, she was so sweet to me and agreed to!!
I'm sure most of you are familiar with this amazing woman, but if not, take a moment to check out her blog~~actually take a cup of coffee and sit back and enjoy yourself! Creativity and inspiration just ooze out of that blog!

Without further rambling from me, here is Lauren's wonderful card!! Simply gorgeous! Thank you again, Lauren for agreeing to be my guest designer!!

The featured team member this week is Jodi! She is just the sweetest and I feel very fortunate to have her on my team! Here's her wonderful card~

Don't forget to check out the other team member's wonderful creations~~their links are all on my sidebar and most of them will link to Mister Linky as well!

Here's my card for this week. I just got this new fairy in from Paper Makeup Stamps and I just had to use her. I so adore the fairies (and other stamps) from Katie's store!! I used Amy's sketch, AMYRS65. I didn't take a picture of the inside but all I did was use my scallop border punch on the bottom of some white cardstock. Just enough to make it look nice!

card size: 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
stamps: Birthday Lauren, TAC Birthday Blessings-retired,
paper: some that I've had forever,
ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Palette Prussian Blue
others: copics, SU scallop border punch, ribbon, white scrappers floss (that I colored blue with my copics), Blue Moon Silver Heart charm, stardust stickles,
