Flutter By Wednesday #200- Our Last Challenge

I can't believe the day is here!! 200 challenges! Wow!! I want to thank all of you for fluttering with me for all these Flutter By Wednesday Challenges!

This is our last challenge so I hope that we will go out with a bang and have LOTS of entries!! 

I feel like I'm saying goodbye to a friend and I'm not going to lie, there have been some tears but it's time to set this butterfly free...

One final THANK YOU to all my Flutter By Team Members--present and past, all the sponsors and all the participants!! 

Moving on before I get all sappy again! This week's challenge is a sketch challenge! We were very fortunate to have Jen Shults, a former Flutter By Wednesday team member, create our sketch for us. Please stop by her blog and leave her some love!

Here's the fab sketch~


Remember your butterfly, fairy or angel!!! and I can't wait to see what you create!!


Be sure to visit the Flutter By Team for lots of inspiration~

Flutter By Wednesday #199

Hello Flutter By Friends! 

Before we get to today's challenge, I have a bit of news to share. Not fun news and I'm sure there will be lots of disappointment but I hope you'll all understand.

Our next challenge on Wednesday, April 25th will be FBW's 200th challenge and it will also be our last challenge.

When I first started this challenge I never dreamed it would even take off, let alone flourish and become what it is today!! Never would I have dreamed I would have met so many wonderful fluttery friends both in the challenges and also on my Flutter By Team! I have been truly blessed!

When I first started the challenge I always told myself that if I ever wanted to stop it, to go out on top...and that's what I'm doing. With an amazing 800 followers and so many fabulous creations and a fabulous team....like I said before, I have been so truly blessed! But after doing this for over 4 years, the time is now for me to end it as it has become more of a *chore* to me instead of fun. I will not "hand the challenge" over to anyone either. It is my baby and I worked hard at it so I'm keeping the blog up for inspiration. I suspect someone will start a similar challenge and that's fine but I'm not giving away FBW!

I, personally, am not stopping creating and I'll still be using tons of my favorite Flutter By's and Fairies so I hope that you will all still stop by my personal blog from time to time to say hi. I think that is the hardest part of ending this challenge is losing the opportunity to visit and see all of YOUR creations. And please know that this was not an easy decision.

So I hope that LOTS of you will play along this week and next as sort of a tribute to the challenge and just so I can *see* you all for a few more weeks! You all have truly touched my heart and I appreciate you all playing along for all these years!

Okay, before I cry onto this week's challenge~ This week we want to celebrate the beginning of FBW and have you CASE my very First Flutter By Wednesday card!! You can see the original post HERE and here's the card~




Remember your butterfly, fairy or angel!!! and I can't wait to see what you create!!

Be sure to visit the Flutter By Team for lots of inspiration!!! and leave them lots and lots of love as they are just amazing and I will miss creating with them each week~


The nitty gritty details~
  • Challenge this week is to CASE my first Flutter By Wednesday card using your butterfly, fairy or angel
  • Once you've created your NEW creation, please leave a direct link in the InLinkz below.
  • I reserve the right to remove any links not linked properly or that I deem inappropriate! 
  • Enter your link before midnight (PST) next Tuesday, April 24th, 2012.
