Happy Hump Day all!! Today the sun is shining and it looks like it will be a beautiful day. That is good because maybe it will keep me motivated to keep going and get some things done. A very busy agenda for me today! Tomorrow I leave to go camping with the family. I am not near ready. Still have to finish pack the trailer, tie up loose ends for dt's and posts here, homeschool my girls, shop for food for the trip, and the list goes on and on. Atleast it is for a good reason and I am happy to do it.

Anywho..... on to today's Flutter By Challenge. This week's challenge was hosted by my dt sister Kim. She challenges us to use a quote on our card (a favorite if possible). Don't forget it has to include a butterfly or fairy!!!! I decided to combine this challenge with my Sweet N Sassy Blog Hop post which was to include scripture. Scripture is a quote from the Bible, right? I just love this verse so I used it. What a verse of promise and hope!

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Sweet N Sassy In His Time and His Eye is on the Sparrow
Paper: To The Nines, Sage Shadow, Chocolate Chip
Challenge used: SC242 from Splitcoast
Accessories: Moracco Lace (EK Success), MS Butterfly punch, Swiss Dots and leaves embossing folder, pearls, Label 4 and oval nesties, sewing machine and brown thread

For more inspiration for today's Flutterby challenge, you really have to visit my dt sister's blogs:

Should you decide to create a card or creation for this challenge, please leave a direct link here on Mr. Linky. If you upload your creation to PCP or SC, please use the keyword FBW, so we can see your creations. Don't forget the challenge includes using a quote and a butterfly or fairy.

Thanks for stopping by today. Please note this is the second post for today. If you are interested in viewing a creation using Inky Impressions stamps and their weekly challenge, please scroll down to the next post.

Have a great day!!

Wonderful card! You can see that you really put some work into this one. That Morrocan lace is fantastic! Where did you get that? Love it! Wonderful verse! The sewing is just perfect on this card!

I homeschooled for just two years but it was quite the experience. I found that everything became a "lesson". I bet your children will learn tons while camping!
