It's a Fluttering Butterfly Day!

I'm fluttering and flitting myself today!! I am so excited to announce that I am joining the Flutter By Wednesday team starting today! For those who haven't discovered this awesome challenge yet, it is every Wednesday and the running theme guessed it, butterflies! Danni started this super fun challenge, and if you haven't visited her blog, you need to go HERE now! In fact, this is her 51st challenge!

This week's challenge was to use butterflies (of course), but to also not use designer paper. Instead, you are to create your own background. This could be using stamps or your Cuttlebug or whatever you choose. The quote from the set Butterfly of Happiness by Stampin' Up is one of my favorites, especially since I am a Hawthorne fan. The card is simple, but I sometimes forget that simple can be really pretty, too! I love how the Purely Pomegranate gives it just the right POP!

Thanks for stopping by and sharing my great news! I feel like I finally got my big break in the biz...Oscars here I come! Please grab a beverage, sit and relax and head on over to the other team members' blogs to see their creations!










Card details:

Stamps: Butterfly of Happiness and Kind Thoughts by Stampin' Up

Paper: Baja Breeze, Very Vanilla, Pink Piroette, Chocolate Chip, Purely Pomegranate, and Close to Cocoa by Stampin' Up

Ink: Close to Cocoa and Purely Pomegranate by Stampin' Up

Accessories: Angel Wings Shimmerz; MS butterfly punch; Cuttlebug embossing folder; ribbon

I sell a boat-program which will help you to outwit auction and to win, initially the boat was created for the Scandinavian auction but now the program can work with similar auctions: gagen ru, vezetmne ru and with ten.
The program-boat stakes for you, i.e. for this purpose it is not necessary to sit constantly at the monitor. The boat can set time when it is necessary to stake, thus you as much as possible will lower expenses for rates, and as much as possible increase the chances of a victory.

The price of the program a boat for the Scandinavian auctions 20$

For the first 10 clients the price 15$

To all clients free updating and support.
