Happy Wednesday Morning!! Today is Flutter By Wednesday!! I so look forward to my posts on these days and seeing the creations of the rest of the fab team and all you participants! I am so glad to see so many of you joining in on the fun! What is not to like about fairies and butterflies right! Fairies are so mystical and butterflies remind me of spring and summer, so cheerful.

The featured team member this week is the ever so sweet and talented Harriet. Harriet just recently had surgery and she never missed a beat when it came to these challenges. I so admire her tenacity and dedication!! She does not have a blog but she links all her creations on SC for you to see. You can find all her amazing creations here. Please leave her some love.

This weeks challenge is to use a butterfly or fairy and brads or eyelets on your card. If you don't have any brads or eyelets, that is o.k., just make a card with a butterfly or fairy. If you do make a card or project, please link it to Mr. Linky here on Danni's blog or use the keyword FBW if uploading to PCP or SC. This week I decided that it was time to order and ink up my first Anya image. I have so admired my oh so talented and sweet friend Janna's and so many other blogging friends Greeting Farm images so I thought it was time to get in on the fun too. I used Flutter By Anya which I purchased from the Greeting Farm. Isn't she adorable!!! Who could resist such a darling image. (yes I am still justifying purchasing yet another stamp! Tee hee!) I used yesterday's color challenge CC220 to incorporate Bashful Blue, Pumpkin Pie, and So Saffron. I also cased this card for the layout from this week's featured stamper challenge FS120, Mercy, at SC ( ). I changed the colors, dp, image, sentiment and added different details to make it my own. The image is watercolored and layered on dimensionals. The butterflies are punched using the classic butterfly punch from Martha Stewart. The sentiment is from small SU's Small Sayings set.

Card Recipe
Stamps: Greeting Farm- Flutter By Anya
SU Small Sayings

Paper: SU Ski Slope, Haiku, Delicate dots, and Pumpkin Pie, Bitter Chocolate, So Saffron and white CS, watercolor paper

Accessories: Hodgepodge Hardware, Paper Co. Flower Brads, So Saffron Ribbon, Textile Embossing folder, MS Classic Butterflies Punch, paper piercer, oval punches

I hope today's project inspires you to join the fun! All you have to do is make a card with a butterfly or fairy and brads or eyelets (or without the brads and eyelets). For more inspirations, please visit the rest of the talented team's creations. Ann, Ashley, Cassie, Cathy, Christine, Danni,Harriet, Heather, Jodi, Kim, Lelia, Michelle, Nancy, Nicola and Stef. Today is Stef's birthday!!! So make sure you pop on over to her glittering post and wish hea a big Happy Birthday! HAPPY BIRTHDAY STEF!!!! Heather and Ashley will be leaving the team for just a while. Ashley is due to have her baby (Isn't that exciting! Good Luck Ashley!) and Heather as she prepares for a busy time of year in harvesting. (I pray all goes well for you Heather and that you do have some respite time from time to time). We will miss you both and look forward to your speedy return!!

I hope everyone finds the time to create and if you so choose that you join in this challenge. For a double challenge, use the Midnight Madness Sketch from yesterday's post to create a fairy or butterfly card. Participants still have a chance to win a $100 shopping spree if they link their creations here before next Tuesday.

Thanks for stopping by today!! I so enjoy your comments! You are all such an inspiration to me!!
