A Spoonful of Excitement!...


Hey everyone!

Happy Tuesday!

I have an exciting post today as I have been asked to be today's Guest Designer over at the A Spoonful of Sugar Challenge blog!

When my friend and fellow Stampavie DT member Michelle Oatman asked me if I was interested, of course I said Yes! However, I was especially giddy when she told me what this week's challenge is....I bet you'll NEVER guess:

Yep! This week's challenge is: to use BUTTERFLIES on your card!

Well, gee, I wonder why she thought of ME? LOL!

I decided to use my Flutter Anya stamp and some soft, sweet pastels to create today's card. After coloring her in with my Copics, I chose some of my favorite DP from the Basic Grey Sultry line and even used a mostly white Cardstock base (Gina K) which I actually don't do often. I wanted this card to be super sweet, soft, and sugary-just what came to mind, I guess when asked to be today's Guest Designer!

I want to thank Michelle and the Spoonful girls for this great opportunity today-it was such an honor that you guys thought of me! Have you guys ever checked out the Spoonful of Sugar challenge blog? I get some AMAZING sketch ideas from them, and thoroughly enjoy looking at the sugary-sweet eye "candy" week after week! I hope you'll check them out!

Thanks again and have a terrific Tuesday! Be sure to check out the Twinkle Team blog today too-I didnt' play along, but I'm sure the Twinklettes have some eye candy for you as well!

Hugs,
Jess :)

Such a cute and maybe a little shy butterfly. The pearls add a nice touch.
