Happy Hump Day Everyone!!! Today is the first Inky Impressions and Flutter By Wednesday Challenge for 2010. Flutter By Wednesday has moved to their own NEW blog and we are celebrating the new year, new beginnings of the blog, and our new creations with a BLOG HOP!! The team has a lot of inspiration to share with you so you don't want to miss out!! If you came here from Karen's Blog you are at the right place. If not, you may want to start at the beginning at Danni's Blog. If you get lost along the way, no worries, just click on back to Danni's blog where there is a master list.

Please help me send a HUGE warm WELCOME to our 4 guest designers at Flutter By Wednesday for the months of January-March.... Jeanette, Suzie, Debby and Shanna! Welcome girls!!! Can't wait to see your creations and get to know you all!

This week's challenge was to create a card or project with a butterfly, fairy or angel and USE SOMETHING NEW. Oh I was so excited to get out my brand new My Mind's Eye paper Be Loved from Stampers Dream and my never used image and sentiment from Inky Impressions! I combined my creation with today's Inky Impressions challenge to use Domi's Sketch.
I had a blast coloring up Lili Roller skating from Inky Impressions. Isn't she just darling! I created a scene behind her by drawing some flowers and masking a stamp from Penny Black.
I water colored my image. The sky is sponged using my oval scallop punch. The butterfly is a Whiff of Joy stamp.

Stamps: Inky Impressions: Lili Rollerskating, Rollin by sentiment from Inky Impressions
Paper: Be Loved- My Mind's Eye
Accessories,: SU Oval punches, pearls, Red grosgrain ribbon, Nursery tales flowers that I cut with My SU punches, buttons, sewing machine

Now for the next stop on the Flutter By Wednesday hop please flutter on by to.....my dear dt sister and friend Michelle.

....and remember if you do create a project or card with a fairy, angel or butterfly and SOMETHING NEW, please leave a direct link at the NEW Flutter By Wednesday Blog. If you upload your creation to an online gallery, please use the keyword FBW

For more inspiration for the sketch at Inky Impressions, please visit my dt sisters:
You don't need to use an Inky Image with the sketch, but if you have them we would love to see them. Please link your creation for the challenge to Mr. Linky here. We can't wait to see what you create!!
