I finished my card off today with some chocolate stick on pearls and a flower with pearls that I found in the Wedding Section of Michaels.

New Goodies for FBW!!

So many new goodies went into the making of this weeks Flutterby Wednesday card which by the way is an open challenge. Just use a butterfly, fairy or angel. So anyway my image is from this months Unity KOTM. I stamped it onto choice cream cardstock and colored it with my copics and then added some new Plum vintage buttons from PTI which coordinate with my new Plum cardstock and ribbon. My dp was picked up at my lss and if I remember correctly it is Basic Grey. Last but not least, my sentiment is from the newly released set from Little Paper Shop called Everyday. Gotta love new goodies!!!

Take a look at the FBW blog for more info on this weeks challenge and come play along with us!!!

On a personal note, I had my first dress fitting today and even though I have been eating EVERYTHING in site (nerves) my dress looked great and I am so excited. We bought my son his suit and now have to have that taylored. Met with the dj today to go over the video montage and met with a good friend of mine who is going to make my jewelry to match my dress. So everything is falling into place. April 17th is coming real fast!!! I wish I can invite all of you to join us for the big day. I will have plenty of pictures to share.

On another personal note, I was copic certified this past weekend. Very exciting!!! We had a great class and had alot of fun learning some very interesting facts about copics.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!!!

Monday Monday!!! That means another fantastic challenge from the Little Paper Shop. This weeks challenge, LPSC60 was issued to us in the form of a sketch from our very own, uber talented Allison. The sketch can be found here, along with some fantastic samples from the rest of the DT to stir your creative juices.

Now I have to be honest when saying that this sketch really kicked my butt. I just could not wrap my brain around the TRUE lines of the sketch so as you can see I just interpreted it for you today. I started with a scalloped circle of black cardstock and then added a scalloped circle of dp from Basic Grey and my background paper is Basic Grey also. The sentiment that I used today is from the newly released set called Everyday. I am LOVING this new set. Then I added some ribbon and a few black crystals that I bought at Michaels. If you get a chance to play along this week with the sketch and we certainly hope that you do, then you can be in the running for the stamp set, Topiary.

So I am in the final weeks before my sons Bar Mitzvah and I am all consumed with it as you can imagine and probably figured due to my lack of crafting and posting here on my blog. It just amazes me how many tiny details are going into the planning of this party. This is actually bigger than my own wedding!!!! So please bear with me and my absence. I so miss my crafting desk and I actually have a ton of new goodies to play with.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!! I hope you have a great day!!

Hop along with LPS

When I saw this new set that the Little Paper Shop DT is previewing today I was thrilled because every sentiment is super special. You will love EVERY last one of them. I especially loved the one I am using today. "To the world you may just be one person but to one person you may be the world". I made this card for my DH because I wanted him to know just how special he is.

Our challenge today at Little Paper Shop was to use something old. LPSC59. Well being I was making a masculine card, I turned to some old SU paper that I love and have not used in forever. Along with our challenge and Preview of this new set called "Everyday", we are having a super fun blog hop for you to enjoy. I am hoping you have visited me via Heather and that you have had a chance to leave comments along the way. After me you will head over to see Julia where you will continue to hop along and back to the LPS Blog where you should leave a comment that you finished the hop and commented along the way. Then you will be in the running for the set that is being released tomorrow called "Everyday". You have another chance to win a prize by playing along with our "something old" challenge LPSC59. The prize for this will be the set "Take Time". So go hop along and if you get lost along the way, just start at the LPS Blog which will direct you to the list of hoppers.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and enjoy the blog hop we have put together for you today!!!

Dare I say sweeter than an apple!!!

Head on over to the Little Paper Shop blog and check out what the rest of the DT has created for you and while you are there, leave a comment so you can be in the running for this amazing new set from Little Paper Shop.

On a personal note, my sons Bar Mitzvah is now only one month away and you can just imagine the crunch time that is going on here....I am completely overwhelmed and have started to shed a tear or two with frustration. Lindsay and I did FINALLY find dresses. Here is a pic of mine except it will be in chocolate brown and I am having it cut to cocktail length. Do you like?? It is one of these dresses that is very forgiving on the figure so it looks fantastic on.

Well I will keep you posted on the comings and goings of the Bar Mitzvah and I will be back tomorrow with another preview for Little Paper Shop.  Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy 100th Danni!!!!

Happy 100th FBW Danni!!! I am so very happy for you and how far FBW has come and I am so proud to be a part of this team. As you can tell, we have all made you FBW Flutterby Boxes thanks to the wonderful and kind idea from Karen, and I chose to decorate my box with your initial and blinged it out. I hope you like it. I worked with a green and brown palate today. Not your typical Flutterby colors but my daughter did not want me to use "typical" butterfly colors so she chose these colors for you!!

Have yourself a fantastic day Danni and I hope you are fluttering by for another 100 challenges!!! You are a super fantastic person and I am so glad to have been able to get to know you and work with you.

HUGS to you and hugs to everyone who stopped in today to be part of this with Danni. Go and show her some love on her blog!!

FBW with Tink!!

Happy FBW!! Today is an inspiration challenge and Danni has challenged us with a sweet picture of Tinkerbell that you can find on the FBW Blog. I chose to pull out the yellows and greens for my card today. I started by stamping my image from Unity onto PTI cardstock and coloring with my copics. I cut it out with my circle nesties and mounted it onto a blossom nestie cutout. All of my paper is from DCWV Nanas Nursery and all cardstock is SU. I finished things off by stamping my sentiment from Unity and rounding the corners for a different look, then tied a ribbon and added my butterfly punches from MS and I am complete. Did you also notice the little butterfly in the sentiment. How sweet!!
Why dont you play along with us this week. The inspiration can be found on the FBW blog as can links to all of my DT sisters who I know created works of wonderfulness!!!
Thanks so much for stopping by today. Enjoy your day!!
