Happy Hump Day Everyone!! I hope you are all having a fab week so far!! I am doing o.k although I have to admit my cold is really taking me down. I now have pulled a muscle by my stomach due to the coughing. Boy does that ever hurt. I am so sorry this post is late but I had little sleep last night and overslept after taking some meds that make me drowsy.

Anywho...on to today's Flutter By Wednesday and Inky Impressions Challenge!!!

Today's INky Impressions challenge is to use Inky Impressions Stamps/Image to make a card following this sketch.

Since the Flutter By Wednesday 80 Challenge is to create a card or project using a fairy or butterfly, I decided to combine the two. I also wanted to make a card for Cancer Awareness month in honor of mother in law who passed away from Cancer. She is deeply missed. This card is going to a friend whose family is affected by cancer. Hope she likes it. I used the Inky Impressions stamp Awareness Ribbon Girl. The background is created with pieces of Penny Black stamps and the Whiff of Joy Butterfly. The sentiment is from SU Riveting. As a dt member of the Saturday Spotlight Challenge, I also wanted to remind you of this week's challenge to create a scene. This card meets this challenge as well.

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Inky Impressions Ribbon Awareness Girl, SU Riveting, Whiff of Joy Butterfly, Penny Black Asking The Flowers
Paper: BG Eskimo Kisses, Pretty in PInk, Bazzill BitterChocolate
Accessories: Floral embossing folder, buttons, Prima Dandies, MS Fern Leaf punch, Spellbinders Circles

To see other creations using the sketch from Inky Impressions, you can visit my dt sisters:
Shary, Pam, Crystal, Jacqui, and Kristen.

We would love to have you join us for this challenge!


This second card also qualifies for today's Flutter By Wednesday Challenge. I incorporated th Mojo 109 Sketch and the CC241 Color Challenge Always Bravo Cameo hosted by my dt sister Betty. I used the Pocket Silhouettes and Great Friend Stamps from SU. The dp is BG Indian Summer. The die I used from Spellbinders for my image and sentiment panel is Labels 9.

Card Recipe: SU Pocket Silhouettes, Great Friend
Paper: Bravo Burgundy, Very Vanilla, BG Indian Summer
Accessories: Embossing folders floral and divine swirls, button, gold cording, satin ribbon, Spellbinders Labels 9

I hope you enjoyed today's Flutter By Wednesday creations. I hope you too will join the fun. If you should CREATE A CARD OR PROJECT WITH A FAIRY OR BUTTERFLY, please leave a direct link here. If you upload your creation to SC or PCP, please use the keyword FBW.
