Flutterby Wednesday #196

Good morning everyone!

Apologies for the lateness of my post! 

This week's Flutterby Wednesday challenge has us teaming up with a wonderful non-profit organization, Butterfly Kisses, for another card drive for some well deserving kids and their families.  The challenge this week is to create a Get Well/Thinking of You/Keep Fighting card using your butterfly, fairy or angel.  Our teammate, Nancy, is heading up this challenge and she shared a little bit about the organization, Butterfly Kisses on the FBW blog.  We hope you consider sending in your card(s) to the organization as it would surely brighten any of the wonderful kid's day.

Be sure to visit the rest of the Flutterby Team for lots of inspiration~

 
I created the following CAS "polaroid" style card.  I haven't done one before so it was really fun to let the image and the scene dictate the card.  Hope you like it.
 

This is a Precious Moment image and I found it amongst my stash of uncolored images.  I believe I found it on the internet and couldn't believe I hadn't colored it before.  It was a perfect fit for this week's challenge.  After coloring it up and adding the grass and cloud cover I flipped through some sentiments and the AmyR sentiment was a great fit!  I hand wrote the first part of the sentiment and stamped the sunshine part.  On the inside I stamped "you make me happy" from the same stamp set.  Hoping this brings a little sunshine and smile to the recipient's day. 
 

Hope you consider creating a card for this wonderful card drive and that you decide to send it in to Butterfly Kisses.  Again, check out the FBW blog for all the details and don't forget to include your butterfly, fairy or angel on your card.  Mahalo for stopping by!!  Have a lovely Wednesday!!
 
Hugs,
Leanne
 
(Sorry, but I forgot to take pictures of the Copics!  If I remember what they were I will make sure to update here.)

Wow Leanne, this is sooooo cute. I don't usually comment about grass, but this is the best one I've seen. You are G-O-O-D. And of course that darling little boy is so adorable. Have a great day.
