Good Morning!! Happy Hump day to you. I am so sorry if I did not get around to comment on your blogs yesterday. My computer or internet service was having some difficulties and after a while I just gave up. I sure hope to make it around today!!

Today's post is combination of two challenge posts: Inky Impressions and Flutter By Wednesday!

Since September is Nicole's (Inky's Mama) Birthday Month, Inky Impressions is celebrating HER all month long. This weeks challenge is to add REAL or FAUX stitching to your card or project using an Inky Impressions stamp. OOO Nicole really loves a card with stitching. So come on and join the fun. We would love to see what you create. If you do join us please link your creation here.

September is also Danni's birthday and the Flutter By Team is also celebrating her with many fun challenges . Danni is offering blog candy every week in September!!! Today the FBW guest designers are her kids, Matthew and Annabelle. Isn't that so sweet. What better guest designers to choose for Danni's birthday than her own kids!! You can see their creations on Danni's blog.

The Flutter By Wednesday challenge this week is to add sparkle to your creation with a butterfly or fairy. Should you create a creation using this challenge, please upload it to Mr. Linky here under FBW75. If you should upload your creation to SC or PCP, Please use the keyword FBW.

Here is my creation using stitching and an Inky Impressions stamp and sparkle and a butterfly. I used the new release SpunkyScooter Lili which is now available in the Inky Impressions store. I colored her with prisma color pencils and gamsol. The dp is from MME Bloom and Grow and K&Co. Glitter Paper. I did add glitter to the image, however it does not show up well in the picture.
