Good Morning!! It seems like I was just here posting. I did not even get a chance to blog hop last night. We had an incredible Thunderstorm and my hubby and I turned off and unplugged all the electronics. It was incredible! You could feel the rumble of the thunder. Many of my knick knacks rattled right off the shelves. It petrified my youngest daughter, Meghan. I haven't ever experienced an earthquake, nor do I care to, but boy did you feel everything shake!! I can only imagine!
Anywho..... Today is Wednesday and today is another Flutter By Wednesday Challenge!!! Today's challenge is to use a fairy or butterfly on your card. Isn't that just easy peasy and so fun for the beginning of spring!!! Danni, the hostess of this challenge is featuring two designers for this challenge, Jodi, a fellow Flutter By DT sister and Lauren Meader our Guest. These girls are so incredible, you won't want to miss their creations!!!
Now on to share my creation!! This was so fun and easy peasy. I was away most of the day so I had limited time to make my creation. When I saw yesterday's color challenge, I remembered some 3D K&Co. tulip stickers that I bought on clearance at Michaels that I just thought were gorgeous that had all these colors!!!! I was extatic to have the opportunity to use them on some of these challenges: Today's Flutter By Wednesday (to use a fairy or butterfly on your card, WT210 (Stuck to you again, to use stickers on your card), yesterday's CC215 (to use Rose red, Pink Pirouette, and Basic Grey), and this week's SFYTT Challenge hosted by Jenn. The gorgeous dp is from Magenta- tapestry line. I was even able to use my favorite spellbinders nestability, Labels 4 since it is shaped like an oval. I added texture by dry embossing all my white and pink pirouette backgrounds. I was thinking of giving it to my mother in law for Mother's Day. What do you think?






CARD RECIPE:

Stamps: NONE- These are K&CO Tulip Stickers

Paper: Magenta- Tapestry DP, Rose Red, Pink Pirouette, Basic Gray, and White CS

Accessories: Pearls, Textile and Swiss Dot Embossing folders, Dots and Dashes Ribbon, Gold spiral clip (I made from ornamental hangers that I bought from Target on clearance at Christmas. I just cut the spiral off with a metal cutter), EK Success Punch, Cuttlebug Vintage Die for corner, Lables 4 nestabilities, Circle nestabilities

Chris this is gorgeous!! You always amaze me with your designs. I think your mother in law would love this card, as would any mother I'm sure!! Absolutely beautiful!
Sorry to hear that Meghan was so frightened of the thunderstorm...Thijs gets that way too when we have bad storms...it can be very unnerving for children. I'm sure you gave her lots of extra hugs and comfort to get her through it.
Hugs to you my Dutch friend!!!

Oh my gosh Chris this is amazing. I love it. You put so much work and detail into this. Great layers and dp. Super card. It was so strange here in NC last night too. I am glad you came out okay. I really appreciate your comments about Mom's Day on my blog. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers too. Hugs.

Believe it or not, I like sitting in the dark listening to the thunder and watching the lightening. I count the quiet between each roll of thunder. The shorter the count the closer it is. OK. So I'm weird.

But your card sure doesn't show anything about sitting in the dark! This is gorgeous. But then, I'm probably your biggest fan - after your family, of course!

Hugs,

Jackie said...

Oh my word - this is UNBELIEVABLE!! Absolutely beautiful!! Wow I had to re-read your post to find out that tulip was a sticker!! I thought it was a chipboard accent that you decorated.

I loooove you for it!! Your attention to detail is second to none!! I am going to be having another look through your blog with a notebook picking up hints and tips i think!!! Fabulous!!!
