Fluttering Flitter Friends


So what did my fellow Gleeks think of last nights episode? I didn't realize that it was going to be a Fleetwood Mac night until the show started and then I was giddy with excitement! I ♥ the Rumours album so it was a good night for me. :)
Not only was the music awesome but the story lines were great once again. I loved the return of Kurt last week and it just feels like the momentum keeps building and building from there so next week should be really interesting!
Ok, gleek out moment over, LOL!

So today I've got a card that is pulling double duty. Not only does it work for the ATS Wednesday challenge, which is anything goes. But I was also asked by Danni, of Flutter By challenge fame, to be a guest for her this week too. And wouldn't ya know that the challenge there is open as well... sweet! :)

It was a no-brainer that I'd be pulling out some Flitter Friends for this card because even though you can use a butterfly, angel or fairy to qualify at Flutter By I'm a fairy nut and any excuse to get one on a card is good enough for me. I ended up using both Raspberry and Blueberry together because the scene they create just cracks me up. Doesn't it look like Raspberry is about to give Blueberry a big squeeze and Blueberry isn't quite sure whether she should fly away or give in to Raspberry's affection? I think she'll stick around for the hug though. ;)

So if you would like to play along with the Flutter By challenge this week, just make sure that you use a butterfly, fairy or angel and once you've created your NEW creation leave a direct link in the InLinkz before midnight (PST) next Tuesday.

And as always the ATS challenge has a new and exciting prize up for grabs and in order to be eligible to win, your project must include a stamp that is sold in the All That Scraps store. Whether it is any of our wonderful in house designs or from the various other stamp companies that ATS carries, the choice is yours. Then be sure to link up your creation with Mr Linky by next Tuesday at 10pm est and only one entry per person please.

Alrighty, thanks so much for fluttering by... I'm off to do a bit of spring cleaning and then have some fun on my day off! :)

This is so sweet Amy. A very pretty card and lovely colours

Angie said...

First off, your card is so stinkin' cute! Now on to the serious stuff... GLEE! I loved the episode so much. I love GLEE, but the storylines are light and fun. Adding in the "heavy" topic of Sam's family losing their house, jobs, etc was a great turn. I think this show is just getting BETTER. I also am SO happy that Kurt is back! I missed having him at McKinley! This was my fav. show so far. It made me tear up!

Danni said...
