Fluttery Thanks


This week at Flutterby Wednesday we are celebrating the theme of Gratitude and Thankfulness, along with your butterfly, fairy or angel on your creation.

I am very thankful that our power was restored Tuesday night.  How nice to have lights and heat and running water again.  And I'll be thankful today when I catch up on my "Cinderella Chores" as Danni likes to call them.  Never thought washing dishes, doing loads of laundry and vacuuming could bring a smile to my face.  I wish I was good at whistling - guess I'll have to hum through my work instead.  {grin}

I'm not very good at creating cards in the cold by flashlight, so I have one of my favorite "oldie but goodie" cards to show you.  Penelope was one of the very first fairy stamps I ever bought.  I love her name and oriental charm.  This is a pocket card with the "thank you" panel tucked inside. 

Thanks for fluttering by today!  Be sure to take a peek at all the Thankful Creations by the rest of the Flutterby Team - links can be found on my sidebar or at the FBW Blog!

Oh Michelle, she is just beautiful! I love how you've coloured her with the glitter and the brads perfect!

What a beautiful image! Love the brads on the ends, and how her wings are so thin and mirror her dress.
