Fluttering and floating along

Olo!

Have you been over to the Flutter By challenge blog this month? September is a whole month of fluttering fun in honor of Danni's birthday celebration! Each week there will be give-aways from some of Danni's most favorite companies and the challenges are all OPEN... making it super easy to play along. :)

I was honored when Danni asked if I would be a guest during this special month and I couldn't wait to play. As you know, the Flutter By challenge is all about using butterflies, fairies or angels on your cards and if you hadn't guessed yet, I'm kind of a fan of magical little winged friends. ;)
My way of thinking is that if a butterfly is good, a fairy is always better. LOL! So of course when it came time to create I wanted to find a new little fairy friend that hadn't seen ink yet. In the end though it was printer ink that I used because this adorable new Dandylion Pixie digi from Tiddly Inks was sweetly whispering from my computer files that it was her time to flutter. I agreed so much that I actually printed her off three times in three different sizes so that my card would look like it had a whole whirlwind full of pixies floating around on those dandelion puffs. What a nice farewell to summer that would be. :)

So now it's your turn to join the party! Just remember to have a butterfly, fairy or angel on your creations and even though it's not a requirement, Danni would LOVE to see some of her favorite things on your cards too... the color pink, lots of sparkle and lots of butterflies or fairies and bright, happy colors!I

I sure hope you'll join us and play along as we'd love to see your creations!Supply list:
