Happy Hump Day Everyone!! I can't believe it is Wednesday already!! It is time for another Flutter By Wednesday and Inky Impression Challenge!! But first I want to say Happy Birthday to dear and special people in my life: Grace, my sister in law and Grace Nywening my dear dt sister and friend!!! Happy Birthday Grace!!!!!! If you have a chance, please leave Grace a birthday wish at her blog!!

First, I would like to thank everyone for their visits and comments on last week's Flutter By Wednesday. Since I was one of the team members who had a butterfly and mini blog candy on my blog, I get to display my candy today and announce my winner.

And the winner is.....


Shirley N said..." Great card Chris, you really rocked those challenges!" Congrats Shirley, please email me your address so I can send your goodies out to you!

And now on to this week's challenges. This week's Flutter by challenge is to use embossing along with a butterfly, fairy or Angel.

Since today is also an Inky Impressions challenge, to use hearts and pink and an Inky Impressions Stamp, I combined the two and came up with this purse using Leigh Ann Baird's little bag template and Angelica's Bunny Hugs. This past week it was my 7 year old daughter's best friend's birthday so I made this for her to give to her. My image is water colored and cut out. I also incorporated these challenges:

All Sorts - use pink and brown
Stamp, Scrap, and Doodle Saturdays - girly
Raise The Bar - debut a new (never been used or opened item) on your card - I used the template from Leigh Ann Baird that I have never used before.

After I cut out the template I embossed it with the Floral Fantasy embossing folder. The dp is leftover scraps but I think it is SEI.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my little bag and you too are inspired to join us at Inky Impressions to create a card or project with a heart, pink and an Inky Impressions Image (If so leave a direct link here before Feb 2, this challenge is for two weeks.)

For more inspiration, please visit my dt sisters:

or If you decide to play in the Flutter By Wednesday Challenge (to create a card or project with embossing and a butterfly, fairy, or angel), please leave a direct link here at the Flutter By Wednesday Blog. If you upload your creation to an online gallery please use the keyword FBW.
