Let's Meet the Flutter By Team Day 1

The new team has been chosen and we're gearing up for the return of Flutter By Wednesday's next week so I thought I'd take a few days to introduce you to the team! 

I like big happy Flutter By Teams so our team is on the large side but that just means more inspiration for you! I have broken the introductions into 3 days so be sure to stop back by tomorrow and Saturday so you meet the entire team!! And don't be shy, feel free to stop by all the team member's blogs and leave some love!

Danni--that's me--the owner/creator of FBW!

My team said this was hard to write about themselves and I agree..LOL! Let's see...US Army wife to Sam, mostly a SAHM to Matthew who will be 11 in a few weeks and Annabelle who will be 8 in September. I recently went back to work after 11 years of not working at my local Curves--very part time. I truly love it! 

I have been scrapbooking for over 14-15 years and always swore I wouldn't get into rubber stamping as I knew I'd be hooked. I was right, I had a stamp party about 7 years ago and the rest is history as they say. I don't do much scrapbooking these days but I love making cards.

I love butterflies and fairies and that is why I started this challenge 4 years ago. I am happy to be back as I missed it so much.

Michelle- Sponsorship Lead (also known as my right hand gal)

Hi, I'm Michelle Van Patten and I'm thrilled to be fluttering with Flutter By Wednesday again!  I've been married to my college sweetheart for 21 years and we're into the teenage years raising our two sons.  I'm a SAHM, who really spends more time chauffeuring her boys everywhere than she does staying at home!  {lol}  

I also believe I have been abundantly blessed and I try to give back with a lot of volunteer time at our church and school.  In addition to paper crafting, I enjoy just hanging out with my family, visiting friends, long walks, long talks, a good book, board games, playing fetch over and over again with our dog or snuggling with my purring kitty. I attended my first stamping workshop over 12 years ago and started with one stamp set, a black ink pad, a pack of white paper and chalk pastels.  From those humble beginnings grew a passion for card making.  I love the joy of creating cards and sharing them with others!  {big smile}

Kathy- Sketch Designer for FBW

Hi everyone! I'm Kathy and I've very excited to be a part of the Flutterby Wednesday's DT. I've loved crafts for as long as I can remember. I grew up making lots of projects with my mother and grandmother. I started scrapbooking about 14 years ago and then rubber stamping  8 years ago. I usually do my crafting at night, since my family keeps me hopping during the day time! I've been married for 11 years and have 4 great kiddos (3 boys and a girl). I also enjoy reading, cooking and reality TV. Really looking forward to seeing everyone's fluttery creations!

I have been married over 30 years to my best friend Bruce and we have one daughter, Lexi, who is 22 years old and three sweet and fun cats. Bruce and I retired in 2008 and are loving it. I have been stamping and card making for about 7 years and have been on several vendor DT but now I am just having fun being on DT such as FBW where I can use any vendor's products - and I have lots of butterflies and fairies from lots of companies!  When I am not stamping I am knitting scarves, chemo hats and newborn hats for charity, working at a local food pantry or traveling.

See you tomorrow for more introductions!!
