Fluttering Mojo.

My AC broke. Right smack in the middle of a heat wave in the Mid-Atlantic area. My house was 93 degrees! Icky! Lucky for me, we had a portable ac unit in the bonus room, so I took it to my room, which cooled it off. Than my neighbor lent me his portable unit. But the house has been hot for two days. My cats were melting. Maxwell, the doggie, hung out with neighbors because it was too hot for him. I wanted to stamp like crazy, but the bonus room was too hot. So, I grabbed my copics, and some images sent to me by friends, and colored. Today, the repair guy came, and fixed it! And it didn't break the bank! Woo hoo! So, it's not steaming in my house any more.
Meant, I got to my desk which is in the bonus room, and was able to put the image I colored onto a card. This sweet bear was sent to me by Tammi. Thanks, Tammi! He's darling! I had grabbed this paper pack at AC Moore by DCWV. Such pretty paper. Called Mariposa. It's filled with butterflies, glitter, and pretty colors. I grabbed the smallest pack size.

This card is for a few challenges.
Flutter By #112-Any thing goes, as long as it's a fairy, angel or butterfly on the card. So glad they are back from their break!

What a beautiful card!!! I'm so glad you were able to get your ac fixed. It has been miserable up here in New England too. They keep promising rain, but *sigh* none seems to want to come. Thanks so much for playing with us this week at CIUWK! :)
