Happy Hump day everyone!! I hope you are all doing well and have had some time to do some crafting!!

Since it is Wednesday today it is time for another Flutter By Wednesday!! This one is a sad one for me, however, since it is my last post as a Flutter By Wednesday team member. I have resigned from the team after being on it for a full year to allow others the opportunity to be on the Flutter By Wednesday team. I have so enjoyed the challenges, our super talented and sweet hostess, Danni, and the friendships I have made with the awesome team!!! You girls are so dear and special to me!! Please know I will still be following you all and playing the challenges when time allows. You will be missed!!



Anywho...here is today's challenge....Create a card or project which is Clean and Simple (CAS) and includes a fairy, butterfly, or angel on your creation.


CAS means so many different things to so many different people ...I made a creation using the a sneak peak set from Our Daily Bread Designs called As You Graduate. I thought it was CAS for me. No sewing, no coloring...but it does have several layers and lots of embossing....



So I said last night at 3 a.m. I should really make another. I used the same As You Graduate Stamp set from Our Daily Bread Designs that will be released on May 1. This is CAS cause I was tired and wanted some sleep. I did add some sewing but this card has a lot of white and very little coloring. This to me is CAS. What do you think?


I hope you can join the Flutter By Wednesday Challenge. If you do, please leave a direct link to your creation here. If you upload your creation to SC or PCP, please use the keyword FBW.
For more inspiration for this challenge, please visit my dt sisters: Danni , Michelle , Alex, Ann, Brandi, Christine, Debby, Harriet, Jodi, Karen, Kimberly, Kris, Kristie, Lelia, Nancy, Randi, and Shana.

I hope you have a great day!! Thanks for stopping by and for all your warm comments!! I so enjoy reading them!!

blessings,
Chris
