Happy Hump Day!!! Today is Flutter By Wednesday!!! The team has another fun challenge for you!!! Today's challenge is to use a fairy or a butterfly with flowers!!! So get out those primas or whatever flowers you have in stock and start creating your fairy or butterfly project!!

Today's guest is Kim! Her creations are just delightful!! You won't want to miss visiting her today!! Danni will also be having more give aways to those who participate in the challenge as part of her month long Birthday Bash!!!!

For my card today I decided to combine the Flutterby Wednesday creation with the
Saturday Sketchers #69 challenge , Penny Black Saturday Challenge (to use pearls and lace) and the OCC Challenge (to use Pink Brown and white). I used " Gifts for You" from Penny Black. I just think the mice at Penny Black are just the cutest ever. Don't you? I colored her in with prisma color pencils and gamsol. The dp is from Basic Grey's Bittersweet line.

I hope you enjoyed today's creation. It is unique in that there is none of my stitching on it. I think even so it turned out cute. Variety is the spice of life, right?!

Speaking of variety, you really need to check out all the diverse and awesome creations by the Flutter by Team. You will be so glad you did.

Today is also Christine's Birthday!! Happy Birthday Christine!! Hope you have a wonderful day!! She even has awesome birthday blog candy up.

Speaking of Blog candy. ...My dt sister and friend, Heather also is celebrating her one year blogoversary. Click on over to have a chance to win!!

I hope this post has inspired you to create and maybe create a card or project using a butterfly or fairy and flowers
. If you do create a project or card for this challenge, please link to Mr. Linky on Danni's blog. If you upload your creation to SC or PCP, please use the keyword FBW.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!! If you do stop by, please leave me a comment so I can in turn go and visit your blog as well. Thanks so much for your wonderful comments, I so enjoy reading them!!
