Flutter By Wednesday 169, Celebrate!

Ya know what's a wonderful way to spend time when a hurricane is blowing by?  Coloring images!  Pulled out my stash of images sent to me from sweet friends, and my copics.  Sat and colored while the kids were playing Hilarium, which they loved.  (Although, they played more like charades, because the rules were missing, and my teacher friend came up with a plan b.)  I colored in several images before the power went back out.  I was thinking of Gabi when I colored her-look, pink hair!  She was impressed!  So hard for me to color outside of natural hair colors!
Today's challenge at Flutter By Wednesday is the theme of celebrate.  I decided to celebrate pink in this card!  Is that allowed?!  LOL!  I used a sentiment which I thought went perfect with my image and can be used for a birthday.  I think I'm getting closer to theme!  Looking forward to what you create!  Be sure to link your card back up at the Flutter By Wednesday blog so we can take a peak at your work!  I followed sketch 69 at Sketch and Stash. I love how I added the bling on her dress and wings.  I covered them with smooch, and added dabs of stickles to her wings.  The dress I feathered the smooch down her dress, and to the top bodice.  Than I added dabs of stickles to the eyelet area above her knees.  Looks so pretty in person!

Thanks for stopping by!

Flutter By Wednesday #167, Punch It Out!

Today's a perfect challenge at Flutter By Wednesday!  Punch it out!  Use dies or punches.  I mean, we all use those just about every time we make a card, right?  So, should be a super easy challenge for most of us!  My card follows a sketch at The Sweetest Thing, their Sweet Sunday Sketch 130.  My paper pack came from my sweet friend, Debbie.  Perfect colors for me, and for summer time fun!  My cute image is from All That's Scraps.  I have been neglecting her, and had to drag her out for my card.  Her curls are so stinking cute! 
Anyhow, enough rambling...make sure you link your creation back up on the Flutter By Wednesday blog, and while you're there take a peak at what the other DT made!  You'll be glad you stopped by!

Flutter By Wednesday #166, Pretties Open Challenge

Open challenge at Flutter By Wednesday today!  You all know that's a big favorite of yours!  So, make sure to include a butterfly, fairy or an angel on your card!  Link it back to the Flutter By Wednesday blog so we can come by and see your art work!  Plus, perfect way to see what the other design team members came up with today!  I promise, you'll love seeing their work too!
We also have a wonderful sponsor today.  Paper Pretties!  Such a fun company.  I ran out of ink in my printer, and wasn't able to print my image up.  Totally feel like I'm slacking on the challenge!  Making a mental note to make sure I get a new cartridge!  Be sure to peak at the Paper Pretties blog.  There are having a sneak peak of their new releases, and some darling stuff on there! 
This was another surprise image from Tammi.  I had so much fun coloring her!  I cut out the flowers, and popped them up to get her more depth.  Used a bunch of scraps of pattern papers too!  Pleased as punch with myself for that! 
Thanks for stopping by!
Supplies:  Copics, nesties, K and Co papers, SU cardstock, PTI ribbon, stickles, SU ink

Flutter By Wednesday,165, Sketch By Danni.

Whew, what a week!  Will get into that more after my Flutter By Wednesday creation.  Today we have a great sketch by Danni.  Perfect jumping point for your FBW creation!  Be sure to link it back up to the FBW blog, and take a peak at what the other design team members did for their card using her sketch.

I turned mine, as it fit my image better.  My image is from either Tammi, or Debbie.  My brain is fried at the moment, so I can't remember who sent it. ( Brain fart, ya know what I mean?!)  Anyhow, she was adorable and so fun to color!  I used an old paper pack I got at Michaels.  Colored her in with copics, and topped her with stickles.  

On to why my brain is fried, outside of the fun heat we are enjoying!  I started a full time job about 2 weeks ago.  Working for a State Farm agent.  Well, I had to get licensed to sell or discuss the insurance with clients, so I had to do some crazy studing on that.  Turned my brain to mush!  But I'm pleased to say I passed my test this morning!  So, now I can get my license to deal with all those fun questions dealing with insurance! 

Now, go get stamping, and make something with that fantastic sketch!
