Fluttering By

Good morning peeps, hope you are all well. Ooh I am awful as this card should have been on my blog yesterday but you know what it´s like - life gets in the way at times but hey ho it is here at last.
Flutter By Wednesday has another open theme this week, only requirement as always is to have a butterfly, fairy or angel on your card. We are delighted to have an uber talented and very sweet person as our Guest Designer this week and she is none other than the infamous Hidden Potential Vicki (basement stamper) and I would love for you to pop by her fabulous blog and say Hi from me too.

Lily-Boo Too have set the theme of Purple, Shapes and more want Borders and Frames, Saturday Spotlight with Hidden Potential say "In so many words", Susie´s Sassy Challenge have just launched today with the theme of Christmas and The Pixie Cottage Celebrate their 2nd challenge.
The sun is shining so brightly that it has made it difficult for me to get a good piccie. I have coloured my digi image with copics, glamour dusted her wings and used polar white flowersoft to her fur trims. I have popped her up with 3d pads onto the nestie. Papers are from Rose Tinted Christmas by DCWV, snowflakes are Provo Craft, ribbons and gems from my stash.
