FBW84 Love Always, Tilda

Good morning, Flutter By Wednesday fans!! It's that wonderful time again...the wings take the hump out of hump day!! Today, we have an open challenge...but please don't forget to put a butterfly, fairy or angel on your card! I was able to use some new great finds on this card! I got this awesome paper pack on clearance at Michaels for 75% off...Autumn Splendor by Making Memories. It is really pretty, and it doesn't have to necessarily be autumn only! Also, can you see the new border punch I used? I love it! It is EK Success made exclusively for Michaels' new American Girl crafts line. I had to check out this new line because my daughter is now obsessed with all things American Girl (Ann, I'm sure I'll be contacting you in the future!!)...however, I told her she wasn't allowed to have one until her 6th birthday (still young by some standards, but I had to split the difference a little!). I think even I jumped on the bandwagon because of a visit to the American Girl store in NYC a couple of weeks ago!
Enough of my ramblings! We would love to see your Flutterby creations! Just link them up HERE on Danni's blog. Today, we also welcome 3 new members to our's always a blast to have new talent among us! Be sure to welcome Karen, Kris, and Pam to our team!! Thanks for stopping by today!

FBW83 Giving Thanks

I really love this time of year because I try to focus on the things that I am thankful for around me. I am thankful for my family and friends, our good health, our freedom, and the many blessings we have had this year. I have been thankful this year for being able to make my Flutterby cards every week and the opportunity and privilege of serving on such a fantastic design team. These girls are top notch and fun and's been an honor, and I am thankful for them. Without butterflies, this wouldn't have been possible. So, in essence, I am thankful also for butterflies and the power that they had to bring all of us together!

Our theme this week is giving thanks...and it can have any interpretation that you can come up with. The only requirement is that the card includes a butterfly and/or fairy on it. We would love to see your creation...just link it up HERE. My other design team members would love for you to visit their creations also...a complete list is in my left sidebar. My card is also for this week's MOJO 112 sketch. Thank you for visiting my blog!
Card Details:
Stamps: Butterfly and sentiment from Technique Tuesday
Paper: Really Rust and Chocolate Chip from Stampin' Up; Nook and Pantry from Basic Grey

FBW82 A Butterfly with Pizazz!!

Doesn't that color (Bermuda Bay) have pizazz? It just jumps off the glad that I was able to use it today!! And, I have a new Martha Stewart's a butterfly border punch. It punches out the butterfly images, then it makes some of them so they pop up! Sometimes those details get a little lost in a picture!!

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!!

Card Details:
Stamps: Butterfly of Happiness by SU
Paper: Soft Suede and Bermuda Bay CS; Bermuda Bay DSP all by Stampin' Up
Ink: Soft Suede by SU
Accessories: Martha Stewart border punch; Rhinestone stickers; Quickutz butterfly die
