It is hard to believe it is already April!! Where does the time go? We are also almost through the first full week in April too yet... The weather has been unusually warm for here at this time of year...not that I am complaining...I LOVE it!!

Well Anywho...since it is Wednesday it is time for another challenge for Inky Impressions and Flutter By Wednesdays!!

For this w
eeks Inky Impressions challenge we want to see you Charm IT, use a charm on your card or project!! 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 by April 19th by Midnight Eastern Time. We can't wait to see your creations this week!!!
Here is my take on the challenge...I water colored Lili Beach Bound with water colors. The dp is Basic Grey Lemonade. The sandal charm is one of many new charms that Nicole is carrying in the store. My layout uses the Friday Sketchers Sketch.
For more inspiration for the Inky Impressions challenge, please visit my dt sisters:

This week Flutter By Wednesdays is having a dear friend and our past design team member Stef!!! Stef has her own very own line of digis!! She provided the team with a few of her butterflies for this weeks challenge!!

Since Stef's blog title is Glitterbabe and she loves sparkle, this week's Flutter By Wednesday challenge is to include sparkle on your card or project!!

I had a great time using on of Stef's digi's to make a top notch box as a gift for a friend The box is created using a template from Leigh Ann Baird. I colored in the image with copics and then added lots of glitter (although it is hard to see in this photo).

I hope you enjoyed my creation!! For more inspiration for the Flutter By Wednesday challenge, please visit my dt sisters:
Michelle Nancy Pam Randi Shana
