Running around like a butterfly with its wing cut off...

Alright, bad visual, but that is what I am feeling like, so I thought I would throw in the plug for this week's awesome Flutter By Wednesday challenge. Cathy, one of our very talented design team members, chose this week's challenge to be a color combo--pink and brown. I love this combo, and I tried to keep it strictly those two colors (don't worry, you don't have to do that!!). Just make sure that you include either a butterfly and/or a fairy on your card, then upload to Mr. Linky on Danni's blog, so that we can all see your creation!

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.

Very pretty card!! Love that image!!

I know what you mean. I'm decluttering my house as well. The brain, well that's a problem I probably can't fix!! LOL. Hang in there, we'll make it (at least that's what I keep telling myself)!

Hugs, Cathy

Hi Nancy! Sorry for the late post - my day was busier than I thought it would be. Your card is wonderful - you did a great job with the challenge.

I've been having trouble with creating too - sometimes cleaning and rearranging help fuel me so I'm planning on doing that tomorrow - wish me luck!! Hope it gets better for you!!

I get that way sometimes, but usually taking a break brings back the inspiration. You have made a very pretty card using this set! I love this combo too, easy to use.
