Flutter By Wednesday #88

Happy Flutter By Wednesday!! Hope you are having a great week!
Thank you again for stopping by and for taking a look at my new flutter by creation using He Loves Me by Wags n Whiskers!! I sure hope you can join us this week because we LOVE seeing the wonderful creations each week!!

Our challenge this week at Flutter By Wednesday is a sketch one! Special thanks to Mercy for providing the sketch for us! Be sure to include a butterfly, fairy or angel on your creation!

I am late posting today because my earthlink email is not working properly and I did not see the sketch for today's challenge until this morning when going to Danni's blog to link my first creation!!!! Truth be known, I even forgot it was a sketch so I had to quickly create a new card!!! I hate when my day starts off that way. Don't you? Seems with the holidays approaching I am so behind on everything that I am scatter brained!!!! is a good thing I am an early riser and it is done already.

I water colored He Loves Me and cut the dog and adhered it with dimensionals. I created the flower using a homemade crocheted flower and my Spellbinders Flower die. The pearls are ZVA creative. The corners are using a Spellbinders Lattice die. The paper is from SEI Bisette. I ~heart~ this paper!!!
Card Recipe:
Stamps: He Loves me from Wags n Whiskers
Paper: Bitter Chocolate Bazzill, SEI Bisette
Accessories: crocheted flower, pearls, ZVA creative pearl flourishes, Spellbinders Lattice pendant die, sewing machine, distress inks, butterfly charm

For more inspiration for this challenge, please visit my dt sisters:
Ann, Lelia, Danni, Stef, Christine, Kris, Nancy, Kim S. Kristie, Nicola, Harriet, Heather, Karen, Michelle, Pam and Cassie.

Is anyone else having issues copying and pasting on blogger. It just would not work at all today. I had to write all the blog links and team members from scratch this a.m. Wow!! This is a big team. It took me forever. LOL! Oh well... if only one person uses the link to visit a dt sister, it is worth it.

I also incorporated the Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge on this creation: Get out your crafting treasures and use them on your creations, in other words, BLING IT UP.

All Sorts
wanted pearls and swirls on their challenge this week.
Creative Card Crew: Any Thing Goes.

Thanks for stopping by today!! Should you create something for this challenge, please leave a direct link to Mr. Linky here at Flutter By Wednesday at Danni's blog. Just remember it must include a butterfly, fairy or angel. If you upload your creation to SC or PCP, please use the keyword FBW.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today and for all your wonderful comments. You all are such an encouragement!! I just love reading them. Have a great day!!

yes, I hate when my day starts off like that. I can't imagine "quickly" creating a card this fantastic though! I love the sewing you did on it, and that little charm hanging from the pearl is adorable.

Grace said...

Oh Chris... I'm so sorry you've had such a rough day! I know how busy we all are and scatterbrained is the way I feel lately too! You amaze me that you got this one done so quickly! It's adorable as always, and I love the pearls and flower! Such perfect details you add every time! Hope it slows down for you soon! My day hasn't been much better! LOL! Hugs!

Christine said...

Such a beautiful card! I love that image and all your details!!!

I don't use blogger anymore to compose my posts. I've been telling people lately that they should try Live Writer. It's a free program from Microsoft and is so much easier to use. Your spacing and pictures are added where you want the and then DON'T MOVE! I've been using it for several months now and love it!!! You might want to give it a try. Just do a search on Windows Live Writer.


Cheryl said...

So very sweet and pretty,your colouring is just so beautiful!!! I hope the rest of the day gets better,it would have taken so long to do this post!!
Hugs xx

Danni said...

Wow, you are just so good! You know the sketch is just an extra challenge, you could've posted what you had made already. This is really are so talented!
