Sentimental Flutterings....

is it just me or is the days just fluttering past us?!? it seems like we just started a new week and already the weekend is approaching!! my goodness... how do we ever keep up!

happy thursday everyone! was going to post this yesterday but with sign ups and an introduction to a new stamp line, i thought that was good enough for your reading pleasure... so i saved my creation for today...

there is a fun Farm Fresh Friday challenge over at TGF's FFCB which is "Get Sentimental" and after thinking about what to create, i had the perfect pair in mind...
Flutter Anya has also been one of my faves and first stamp purchase from TGF and she was awesomely paired with a sentiment from TGF's Butterfly wishes set... this creation is a bit out of my comfort zone but i had so much fun making it!! i actually like the way it turned out regardless that some of the DP don't quite match... it is all from the same paper pad, but does not necessarily mean they go together... ah you catch my drift right?! did some paper piecing again (i just LOVE this technique) added some baker's twine (though you can barely see it) and distressed ink the edges of the mat... also distressed the DP edges of the main layer, but not with ink... with the DP scraps, i layered butterflies to kind of match Flutter Anya... i do like it!! it has fun colors, a fantastic sentiment and the embellies add a great touch... what do you think?? should i step out side the zone more?? hehe! well, i'll try to now and then... =D

my time is up with all of you for now... hope to bring you another share tomorrow... thanks for dropping in and checking out my card!! come back soon!!
