So happy to flutter by


So before my semi-hiatus from stamping I had said goodbye to one of my favorite challenges out there, the Flutter By challenge. Now that I'm back, imagine my delight to find that Danni has brought back the challenge with all of it's fluttering fairy and butterfly goodness. Yeah!

The challenge this week is open and I couldn't wait to dive back into the fun. A quick search through my binders and I had just the Christmas fairy stamp for the job... Crystal Flakes from Sugar Nellie. It was a bonus that she had yet to see ink yet so that's another small crafty victory. I used the Crystal Flakes stamp with a bit of selective inking to add all of the extra snowflakes falling around her and the sentiment. Then I just added some glitter pen to give them a bit of sparkle. More scraps are out of the bag and onto a card so all in all I'm a happy stamper. :)

Well, it's looking to be a busy, busy day ahead so I'll wrap this up and bid you all adieu.

Yet another adorable card! She is such a sweet fairy and I love the sentiment. Did you get the severe cold today? We sure did and we sure had a lot of frost on the windows this morning. I even came home from work and put on my heavy sweater, warm socks and made all of us some hot chocolate. :O) It was cold, but really fun. Hope you are doing well and had a great day too. Hugs, Lisa

Sugar Nellie fairies have the best shoes, all pointy with those bobbles on. I would trip, but I guess that's the advantage of having wings... you can wear really really impractical shoes!

I love the muted tones of this card with the cleaner ones on the fairy -- she pops beautifully.
