Flutterby Birthday


Man, a work in progress today. Hard to get back into the swing of things with the kids starting school. I like to help out as often as I can, so I'm trying to balance two schools. Fun part, both kids start/end at the same exact time and are about 15 minutes apart this year. So, I started this card this afternoon, and just now finished it!

Here is my Mojo Monday challenge. I flipped it. It's also a Pile it on Challenge, which was birthday. And Flutterby Wed, which was pink card. Exciting news, I won some fun blog candy from Danni! Woo hoo, and a big thanks, Danni! I didn't have time to stalk a lot of other challenges today. Only three, that's a short list for me! LOL!


Anyhow, it's TAC's pattern paper, More Mimi, Mimi-retired, and a Mabelle Rose stamp set called Fairy Wishes. So cute. She's got a new one out too, that's even cuter! I almost used it, cuz I got it, but remembered, fairies! No fairies in that set. My cardstocks are SU's rose red, and creamy caramel. Colored her with copics, paper pieced her, and used some fun paper from Target, the major glitter layer. Than she's topped with stickles.

As always thanks for stopping by!


Here's a fun shot of the kids for the first day of school this past week. Gabi was all about the bling! I found her whole outfite, outside of the leggins at Justice. I made her wear black to try to not look like bubble gum so much! This card is so her in fact! Trey was a cool dude, cuz Daddy was saying Momma goes over board with photos. I don't think so!
