FBW119 Off to School...Flutter By Style

Well, it's official...my daughter is now a kindergartner! She started school yesterday, and this is a card that we made for the assistant teacher. I'll have the card for her teacher on in a day or two. I had to use this adorable new image I bought from Paper Pretties. If you aren't aware, Paper Pretties is under new ownership, and Heather is doing an awesome job! I placed my order on Sunday, and my stamps arrived on Wednesday. Now, that is some seriously fast shipping and great service. The Paper Pretties challenge this week is Back to School (luck would have it that I did this card!!) I also used the sketch from this week's Crazy 4 Challenges (C4C51).


It is Flutter By Wednesday, and I had to add butterflies to this card...butterflies can fit in anywhere. We planted flowers in our front bed. Finally, after 7 years of living here, and I am so glad that we did. We planted lantana and verbena and the butterflies are constantly visiting. How awesome is it to see butterflies every day? Well, at least at Flutter By Wednesday, you can see them once a week.


You definitely want to participate this week...it's an open challenge (use a butterfly, fairy, and/or angel), and you need to have participated at least once to experience the wonders starting next week on the FBW blog. Something big is coming, and you are in for a treat!! I can't spill the beans just yet, but it will definitely be worth your while!! Upload your creation HERE. We have to say goodbye to Tina this week, but we will have a new guest designer next week. Be sure to leave the team some love this week.


I leave you with my kindergartner. She practically bounced out of bed she was so excited! I was strong and held back the tears, but I was definitely sobbing inside!!
