Happy Hump Day Everyone!! I hope you are all having a wonderful week so far!! Mine has been very busy but no rain!!!!! Woo hoo!! Today the sun is even out!!

Today I would like to share a card I made for today's Flutter By Wednesday Challenge!! I so look forward to Wednesdays when I can share these creations with you and see the rest of the teams take on the challenge. Today is another open challenge week where you can create a card or a project that only requires a fairy, a butterfly or an angel (for the upcoming holidays angels have been added).

For my creation I decided that I better get going on some Christmas cards. I am so behind!! I should join in the Christmas All Year Round Challenges so I don't get so far behind but I really have a hard time creating for Christmas at certain times of the year.

Anywho....on to my card....I used the Angel and Christmas Verses Stamp sets from Our Daily bread Designs. I colored the angel using prisma color pencils and gamsol. I added glitter to the wings. The background panel behind the image has poinsettias embossed in gold around the edges using the Blessed Christmas set from ODBD and then sponged it with ranger distress inks. The dp is from the Retired Su Holiday Treasures Paper Pack. I love this paper!

Card Recipe:
Stamps- Our Daily Bread Designs- Blessed Christmas, Christmas Verses and Angel
Paper- Bitter Chocolate, White, and Holiday Treasures from SU
Accessories: Label 4 Spellbinders, Riding Hood Red Ribbon, Corduroy button, Hero Arts Pearls, Fleur De Lis Embossing Folder, Gold Metallic Thread, Sewing Machine

I hope you are inspired to create a card for this weeks Flutter By Wednesday Challenge. If so, and you do create a card or project with an angel, butterfly or fairy, please leave a direct link to Mr. Linky here. If you upload your creation to SC or PCP, please use the keyword FBW. For more inspiration, please visit my dt sisters:
We also have a wonderful, wonderful guest designer today! Not only does she create wonderful works of art, but she is also a dear friend of mine! "She" is, Vicki!! Please click on over to her blog and leave her some love today!! Glad to have you join us today Vicki!!!

Thanks for stopping by today. I am hoping today I am able to visit more blogs than yesterday. My computer is moving super slow. It has really been quite frustrating!! I look forward to being inspired by your creations.

Sorry I've been MIA for awhile. The infection really kicked my butt. I've had it since the beginning of October and the new antibotics that they gave me seem to be helping. I go back on Monday to see if the infection is all clear. At least I'm slowly getting my strengh back. Please know that I've looked at your blog, love your creations and am super honored to know such a talented and sweet lady!!

Hope you have a great weekend!
