Happy Wednesday Everyone!! I can't believe how the weeks just fly by. It seems like just yesterday that I was posting last week's Flutter By Challenge and here it is upon us once again. Not that I am complaining.....I love Flutter By Wednesday. Who can resist using butterflies or fairies on their project. They are so fun!
Today's challenge is to use 2 TYPES OF DESIGNER PAPER and a BUTTERFLY AND A FAIRY. If you don't want to use 2 types of designer paper that is o.k. just use a butterfly or a fairy but you must have atleast one butterfly or fairy. This week's guest designer is the one and only.....Jodi Collins. She has such awesome creations and wonderful blog. You won't want to miss visiting her for her project this week. Our featured team member is Stef at Glitterbabe Greetings. Stef does not only have an outgoing bubbly personality with whit and charm, but her creations are fabulous! Her blog entries and creations always bring a smile to my face and a chuckle or two along the way! Please hop on over to these blogs and leave them some love today.
And now....for my creation. I decided that I would make a birthday card for one of my many friends who has a birthday in May! Rather than just make an ordinary card, I decided to make a joy fold for this person since she inspires so many smiles in my life. I hope she smiles when she receives this card as well. I used some of my new goodies from SU including: my Walk in the Park DP, Echos of Kindness Flower stamp and my sentiment from Fifth Avenue Floral. The birthday sentiment is from Verves' Just Because set. What do you think?
Card Recipe:
Stamps: Echos of Kindness, Fifth Avenue Floral, Verve Just Because
Paper: Walk in the Park, Bella Birds, Black
Accessories: Sheer white ribbon, scalloped circle punch, circle punch, sewing machine, MS punch-butterfly, glitter
I hope you like my sample for today's challenge an that it inspires you to join us for some Flutter By Fun. If you do create a Flutter By card of project, please upload your creation to Mr. Linky here. If you upload creation to SC or PCP please use the keyword FBW so we can see all these beautiful creations in one place. For more inspiration, you will want to visit Danni's blog for the featured team member example, the guest designer's creation, and her own. You will also want to visit the rest of the teams blogs for their ultra talented and creative takes on this challenge, Ann, Ashley, Cassie, Danni, Harriet, Heather, Jodi, Kim, Cathy, Michelle, Nancy, Nicola, Stef, Christine, and Lelia. You will be so glad you did!
Today is suppose to be a gorgeous day! I look forward to going into my garden, spending time with my girls, making a few cards and doing some blog hopping as well. Thanks to everyone who has stopped by and left me such wonderful comments. I so enjoy reading them! Have a great day! Tomorrow I will be back with the Divine Diva Inspiration Challenge.

Hi Chris :) THANK YOU SO MUCH for stopping by today! I absolutely LOVE your card! The dp and all your cute scalloped stitching is awesome! Love the sentiment and flower too. What a lovely blog you have. It's very comforting and I'm so glad you have that verse at the top--love that! I see you are a Designer for Our Daily Bread--awesome! I have so few (if any?) Bible verse stamps and in reflecting on how I so want my card-making to be used as a sort of ministry, those are definately on my wish list.

I really appreciated your visit today. I'm adding your blog to my roll :) Have a blessed day!
