FLUTTER BY WEDNESDAY NEW CHALLENGE



Hello Everyone......

I just blew in on the 5PM winds to say hi! with a new challenge for FLUTTER BY WEDNESDAYS  and I mean flew....the weather is crazy....winds here in Napier NZ like you wouldn't believe,and an earthquake at 1PM...that shook everyone up....now the clouds have come and a drop in temp...lol..think I'll move soon, this is too much for one to cope with AND an elderly lady with Alzheimer's....who thinks the Fairies come in at night AGAIN...I will have to have her house sprayed and then they may be gone..lol...the things we do....

Anyhoo, we are here for a new challenge that is starting over at Flutter By Wednesdays   and we have a  $25 gift certificate for some lucky person to spend at SCACD...yummy!

Our theme this week is.......ANY WINGED CREATURE.....and usually the rules state you must have a Fairy or Butterfly...but for this week only you can have any winged creature you wish....

I was sent a beautiful rubber stamp by DANNI   [ The Boss]... to play with...and this is the beautiful
GATHERING LOVE  By Carmen Medin for SCACD..



She looks so sweet sitting in her garden and  lovely to colour..

Papers were a freebie pad from a magazine called "The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady"

The white heart border was a felt sticky backed strip I found, and then covered most of it up, but it is very pretty...when you can see all of it....




There's a close up of the image, coloured with pencils and a red copic....



And I made the butterfly with a cuttlebug heart die and added a couple of pearls...



And a side view, all decorated inside as well...

So there you go...a new challenge, a prize and any winged creature you want...couldn't be easier, hope to see you there at FLUTTER BY WEDNESDAYS


Luv CHRISSYxx

Beautiful, beautiful card. I am very impressed with the way you've matched up your two panels of DP, and the image is wonderful. The heart shaped butterfly that carries the flower shape "off" the page is wonderful. The details on this card are top notch!

You can keep the earthquakes (or send them off, but not here) and I feel for you with the winds, it's beyond nuts listening to it now. Three days straight and does wonders on the head.
Your card is glorious Chrissy. I go into a dreamy state when I stare at all the very cool embellishments you add. :)
