Simple and Sweet

Hey Friends! Happy Wednesday to you.... are you ready for another Flutter by Wednesday?!? i'm sure you are... and boy have i missed you all....

There's something special happening this week on the Flutter by Wednesday blog... now, you don't want to miss it right?? of course not! so what's that something special you ask?! This week for Flutter by Wednesday #97 we are being sponsored by Susana's Custom Art and Design.... Susana's tag line ~ "Follow your heart in art and life".... Yes, she's giving up some blog candy for this week's challenge only... how can you participate?? simply create using a butterfly, fairy or angel and add hearts to your creation... then link up to Mr. Linky on the Flutter by Wednesday blog post by Monday, February 22nd at midnight (MST)... if uploading to SCS/PCP, please use keyword FBW... more deets can be found on the FBW blog... so head on over there...
here's my simply sweet card... i used this stamp that my GF Kim sent to me... i thought it was perfect since it had a butterfly and some hearts.... really made this quite simple by adding some layers and some pretty heart ribbon by American Crafts.... and then some stickles on various parts of the stamp... i hope you still like it, even in it's simplest form... =D

the muscles in my arm pulled again and i'm having the hardest time crafting and lifting up my right arm... so simple was simply good enough for me.... sorry it's not something extravagant like my normal work... the pain is too intense for me to really detail my work... so with that said, i'll probably take another few days off from crafting to mend the arm...

okay, enough sad story on me... Please visit the rest of the Flutter by sweeties and leave them some love... i just know you'll be excited to see their creations.... so until we meet again.... Have a beautiful fluttering day!!!
