Happy Wednesday!! It is hard to believe half the week is gone already!! Happy St. Patrick's Day!! I sure hope your week is going better than mine thus far. My dear husband has been home sick all week, I have been suffering a migraine (which is why I haven't commented makes me seriously ill on the computer), and now my youngest has come down with a fever and flu. I am praying my daughter Nicki and I escape this flu..... Anywho..... Welcome to another Flutter By Wednesday and Inky Impressions challenge!!

Today at the Flutter By Wednesday challenge we would like to a creation with green or shamrocks and a butterfly, fairy or angel on it. If you have any Paper Make Up Stamps (PMS), we would love to see you use them since they are this week's sponsor. They have offered one participant who adds their creation to Mr. Linky a bonus prize. You can check out the Flutter By Wednesday Challenge for more details. Should you participate in this challenge, please leave a direct post to Mr. Linky here. Should you upload your creation to SC or PCP, please use the keyword FBW.

For today's creation, I do not have any PM stamps (Yet!!), so I created a Spring Basket using a template from Leigh Ann Baird. I have had so much fun making gift boxes from Perfect Presentation.
The stamps used for this basket include Bunny Buddies retired from Stampin UP. Isn't he sweet. The dp is from DCWV Nursery Pack. The handle is created with the MS Garden Trellis.

I hope you enjoyed my Spring basket today!!! For lots of inspiration,
Be sure to visit all the flutter by team members!

Now it is time to share this week's Inky Impressions challenge. Since it is March we thought it would be fun to THINK GREEN but not the color green...we mean Recycle or Reuse. This weeks challenge will be going on for TWO WEEKS so you have plenty of time to come and join the fun. No need to use Inky Images but if you have them we would love to see you use them!!!! To be eligible to get Inked by the Inkettes you must have all creations uploaded to Mr. Linky here by March 29th by Midnight Eastern time.

Here is my creation for the Inky Impressions challenge:
This is a lunchbox I made using Lauren Meader's Lunch box template and some SU paper and scrap pieces Creative Imaginesce. My recycled piece is the background behind Shy Little Nikki. It is actually a cut out from A Spring Hill Bulb Catalog. Isn't a perfect background?!! It looks like it was meant for her. I colored Nikki in with water colors and popped her on dimensionals framed in a Lattice Spellbinders die. The border around the middle is a MS heart border punch.

For more awesome and creative inspiration for this challenge, please visit my Inkette sisters:
