FBW86 Happy Colors, Please!!

It has been rather dreary here in the Charlotte region over the last few weeks...more rain and overcast than sun it seems. So, I thought I would inject a little cheerfulness into the mix!! I am woefully behind on my Christmas cards, so I am scrambling to figure out what to do! I'm even thinking, GASP, of just sending out a photo card this year!! Am I bad?
Today is Flutter By Wednesday, and we have a special guest, Mercy! She does amazing work and please be sure to stop by her blog and peruse a bit! I especially love the image she is working with this week...it is amazing!!
We also welcome a new team member this week...Kimberly. We are so excited to have you join our super fun team, Kimberly! We also, sadly, must say goodbye to Taylor. We will miss you, Taylor, but we'll see you soon!
Today's challenge is an open one, so you just have to use a butterfly, fairy or an angel on your card this week. You can link up your creations HERE.
Some more exciting Flutter By Wednesday news...we are moving to a new home in the new year. The Flutter By Wednesday Blog is up and running...make sure to become a follower to keep up with all of the new changes!!

I think we are all feeling the dreary weather and am needing some sunshine because quite a bit of us used bright colors! Gorgeous butterfly - never seen that one and it's awesome! Great card this week, Nancy!

Oh Nancy, this is GORGEOUS! I love all that color! I find this time of year very dreary and I'm a sunny kinda gal, so I (so does my family unfortunately) suffer from not getting enough sun. I love seeing all those gorgeous colors, brings a smile to my face!
