Happy Hump Day Everyone! I can't believe it is Wednesday already. Where does the time go?!! I have so much to do by Friday before I leave to go away so to think it is Wednesday scares me a bit. I really better get cracking!!

Anywho...today it is Flutter By Wednesday and the Inky Impressions Challenge. Due to lack of time and that the Flutter By Wednesday is an open challenge only requiring a butterfly or fairy, I combined the two challenges. I also incorporated the Saturday Spotlight Challenge for this weekend to create a treat box to give you other ideas on what you can do and remind you of this week's challenge. Some of you may remember my triangle treat box with Lili's Slumber Party for my daughter Nicki. Today I created a different treat box for my daughter, Meghan using the Lili's Stuffed Bunny and the popcorn bowl from Lili's Slumber Party. Inky Impressions challenge this week was to incorporate sewing on your card or project and do not use dp.

I created my background on pink piroutte using my distress ink the butterfly Ecstasy small template and the stars from SU Basic Backgrounds (retired a long time ago). I hope you can see my sewing on my oval and the decorative stitching on the box itself. Now this box is one that I consider very girly with the colors ribbon and lace. The image is water colored with distress inks and popped on dimensionals. I am beginning to really love water coloring with these distress inks, the results are so bold and cheery!!The ribbon I used is a gift from my daughter for my birthday. She is tickled pink that I used it!!! The top ribbon says "cute, sweet and precious".



I have included the triangle treatbox I made for my other daughter just in case some of you missed it over the weekend. The image used for this one is Slumber Party Lili. We have started
a tradition in our household to have a family movie/slumber party on Halloween weekend since we don't celebrate halloween at our house. I have a treasure hunt for them and then we celebrate our family and fall with a movie and slumber party.

I hope these creations inspire you to join in one of these FUN challenges.

Remember for Flutter By Wednesday is another open week. Just create a card with a butterfly or a fairy on it.
I also wanted to add that since the holidays are right around the corner...We think that angels "flutter by" too so feel free to add angels to your creations for the holidays.
Leave a direct link to your creation in Mister Linky. If you upload to SCS or PCP, please use the keyword, FBW. Can't wait to see what YOU create!! For more inspiration, for this challenge, please visit my dt sisters:
Today's challenge for Inky Impressions is to use Inky Impressions Stamps/Image to make a card or project without using any Designer Paper and ADD Real or Faux Stitching. For more inspiration for this challenge, please visit my dt sisters:
Please leave a direct link to your creation here.

If you create a treat box for the Saturday Spotlight, please leave a direct link here. If you click on the link, you will also see all the dt girls treat boxes. There is a great variety!!
