Flutterbys and Flowers


Sorry for the gap in my postings. As you know from my last post- over a week ago (!!!) I had a bear of a paper to write. I finally finished it last Thursday and can now spend some quality time in my studio.

My friend Judy, started a blog about 6 months ago JN Designs to promote her invitation business. Well she hasn't updated in quite awhile. When I was chiding her about it, she said maybe I am just not a blogger. I looked at her and thought what? Then I realized some people just aren't bloggers. In my opinion bloggers a bit narcissistic. We want people to look at our blogs, we want them to comment on our postings. It validates us. Judy is the most humble person I know. Unlike me it isn't all about her, so yeah she isn't a blogger. It is a shame though, because she has so much creativity to share. 

So back to todays card, yeah it is all about me and the two challenges I am entering my flutterby card in. I am entering this in this week's Fusion challenge and I fused the two challenges.


I am also entering this at the Addicted to CAS challenge featuring flowers. They also have a call out for  new design team members, I am gonna give that a whirl also. Here's hoping!

Thanks for indulging me everyone, because ultimately it is about me :) !

Enjoy your weekend!

Here's to you, Sue!! I totally agree with your definition of bloggers, especially the validation part. It is my pleasure to validate your card art for this week's Fusion! It is a real show stopper in the thumbnails and one that I'm saving as a winning design for future inspiration!!
