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!!!
