FBW171 Whimsy and Stars!!



Hey everyone!! We have more celebrating at Flutter By Wednesday this week! Remember, that we are celebrating Danni's birthday all month long, and you are the ones who benefit, even more than the design team!! And, that is hard to beat! Also, the challenges for this entire month are OPEN, so what are you waiting for? Hop on over HERE to enter your card today! Please don't forget, like I did, to include a butterfly, fairy or angel on your creation.

We have two wonderful sponsors this week -- Whimsy and Stars and Tiddly Inks! You can't beat the cuteness of either of these companies.

In addition, we have a wonderful guest joining us this week at FBW -- Amy Young! Please pop on over and say hi to her!!



I have used the above sketch from the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #134 for my card today!
********************

On a personal note -- I have to apologize and explain my absence of late. In the immediate few days, I've been fighting an awful cold, and it seems to cloud everything. Being supermom is the only thing I've been able to somewhat maintain! LOL! This past summer and now early fall, I have been heavily involved with my daughter's school on their PTO Board. While I absolutely love volunteering, it has consumed a lot of my time and energy. In addition, I'm a Girl Scout leader to a troop of 16 girls, and of course, that is ramping up as well! So, please bear with me as I navigate this new normal. I feel busier now than I did when I was working full time!! Who would have thought...

Very sweet card, Nancy! Love the ticket corners on the white panel with the scallop frame behind them. And I hear ya about school stuff and extracurricular activities - I've felt exhausted ever since things started up again trying to keep up with the boys!
