Did I get my groove back yet? Maybe a glimmer because I combined this week's Flutterby challenge with this week's Mojo Monday 111 sketch! I haven't done a Mojo sketch in a LONG time! What is wrong with me? This week's Flutterby Wednesday challenge is an open one--just don't forget to use a butterfly and/or fairy on your card! I love this quote, but I have very few butterfly related quotes, so this one gets a lot of action. We hope that you will play along with us this week...we've got a few members fighting the flu, so send them some healing thoughts! We would love to see your creation, so please link up HERE to show us your stuff! And, fun, fun, fun--we have a guest designer this week. Her name is Vicki, and she is awesome!! You will especially love her card for this week on Danni's blog!! Check it out!!

My card today is one that I made for a wedding that I attended this past weekend. It was for my cousin Jared and his bride Ashley. They were married in Lake Junaluska, NC and the reception was in Waynesville, NC. It was peak leaf season in the NC mountains this past weekend, but, boy, was it cold!!
This was the inside of the card...I never do the inside, but wedding cards are special, so I thought it was only fitting!!

I ratcheted down my card a bit this week...it's a simple one, and I had fun playing with some embellishments that I don't normally play with! There is no stamping on the card, and sometimes that just feels good!!
Wednesday, September 2, 2009
This is a really bright one for me, but I really love how the colors came together! Normally, yellows aren't my thing, but when I saw this image, and those fantastic boots, I had to do it!! This image was from an image chain swap on the Magnolicious group, and I found some really fun ones!!

I did have fun playing with my nesties on this card. I couldn't wait to finally get my hands on the curved rectangles!! I love them, and they are perfect for making a card this size!! The image is Alva, who is just darling! I love the Magnolia stamps...maybe it is because they are super cute or from Sweden, I don't know!
Thanks for sticking by me in my seeming stamping rut! We are up to our eyeballs in getting estimates for a kitchen remodel, so my mind has been elsewhere. Luckily, I don't have to deal with my daughter going to kindergarten...that's next year! I'm slowly getting back into the swing of things!

Today's Flutter By Wednesday challenge is to use a butterfly or fairy and use no designer paper. This was really difficult for me, and I knew that I had to involved texture to give it more interest. Ann, you kicked my butt with this challenge, but I am so glad because I like the way my card came out. If you get a chance to play along, please link up your creation on Danni's blog with Mr. Linky! We'd love to see it!!

I'm still having a hard time finding my way back to crafting. I've been trying to declutter my house, and I think I have also decided it's time to declutter my brain. Is that even possible? Do you ever have that slump where you just don't feel like being creative? I admire the people that plug along and make multiple cards, but I'm a girl who needs to be inspired. I guess my brain is still on vacation.

This card was for my stamp club swap this month, which was a Christmas in July theme! I just love the Snow Swirled set from Stampin' Up. It begs to be embossed, so I unearthed my embossing supplies and went to it!

With no stamping on this card, you would've thought it would be easy to make. Well, you know when you have a visual in your head of what the card should be and you just take a long time executing it? Yep, that happened to me. I actually spent two days, on and off, on this card. I think the main snag was the metallic thread in my sewing machine. I wanted to use the thread, but I don't think I had the right needle. I'll have to get one better suited for metallic thread. And, can I just tell you that sewing around those small flowers isn't easy. I swear that my stitching is usually much better than that! One fun thing...I did get to use my new Basic Grey paper, Lemonade that I snagged at Archivers at the end of June. It is really gorgeous paper!
Stamps: None (can you believe it?)
Paper: Lemonade by Basic Grey; Kiwi Kiss, Rose Red and Pink Pirouette by SU
Ink: Rose Red for edges
Accessories: Nesties Flower; sewing machine; pink and pink metallic thread; McGill Build a Butterfly punch; buttons; Coffee Shimmerz; satin ribbon
