Good Morning! I can't believe today is Wednesday and it is already June. Where does the time go!!! My oldest baby turns 10 this month. It seems like just yesterday I was pacing the floor with a colicky baby and now she is going to be 10!!! Wow! My mother in law is telling everyone that she is 10 now. I keep telling her, not yet...I am holding on to every moment. Pretty sad huh!!

Well since it is Wednesday, that means it is Flutter By Wednesday! Woohoo!!! This week's challenge is a fun one. Why you say? Aren't they all fun? Yes, but this week your creativity is the limit because it is OPEN! That means all you have to do is create a card or project with a butterfly or fairy on it and you are good to go. Easy peasy!! So what are you waiting for....join the fun! If you do, please just leave a direct link here. If you upload to SC or PCP please use the keyword FBW.

This week's guest designer is one who I follow regularly and thoroughly enjoy!!! She always does fab work with her over the top creations and her creation for today's challenge is no exception. She is a designer for not one but several companies. Drumrolls please.....And the designer is none other than Cindy Haffner!!!! Be sure to pop on over to her blog and leave her some love. You will be amazed at all her lovely colors, layouts, and details!!

This weeks featured designer from the Flutter By Wednesday team is someone I know real well or atleast I think I do. She thinks she has some talent, is gentle hearted and tries to share her love with others....shh don't tell her the truth. Oh yeah, .....this weeks featured designer is....ME! Tee hee! Thanks for this honor Danni! Here
is my creation:

I often do so many cards or projects for design teams and just don't have enough time to even stamp with some of my favorites!!! This stamp is from The Whiff of Joy Spring collection! I used my watercolors to color her. The layout is from an old sketch challenge at Creative Inspirations . I wanted to use some of the in colors that are retiring this month as well. (Don't worry I will continue to use them even after they retire because I hoarded some of the dp and cs!!!! Tee hee!) The dp is from My Minds Bohemia collection and SU- Walk in the park. The cs is SU Baha Breeze and Bazzill Bitter Chocolate.

Thanks for stopping by today!! I so enjoy your visits and comments! You are all my inspiration!!! For more inspiration for today's Flutter By Challenge, you won't want to miss popping on over to my uber talented dt sisters: Ann, Cassie, Cathy, Christine, Danni, Harriet, Heather, Jodi, Kim, Kimmie, Lelia, Michelle, Nancy, Nicola, and Stef. After being away from the team for a while Kimmie is returning. Her Birthday was also yesterday....Happy belated Birthday and welcome back! Can't wait to see your creations!!! If you have a minute please pop on over to her blog and wish her a warm welcome back and belated Happy Birthday!!

Thanks again to all who stopped by today.....You are so appreciated! Tomorrow I will be back with the Divine Diva Inspiration Challenge!!!! I hope you all have some time today to do some creating.....maybe even for this Flutter By Wednesday Challenge. All you need is a fairy or a butterfly.....Have a great day!!!
