Clearly Inspired Challenge #33 -- Things with Wings --

Hello friends! Here we are again .. another 'first friday of the month' I cannot believe it is already August! Not to mention August 5th! My son has been a second grader for 5 days already! Not only is this all true, but it is also time for the Clearly Inspired Challenge over at Lori's blog, Clearlyistamp. This time, our talented hostess, Cassie, has challenged us to create with "Things with Wings". I immediately thought of the Clear Dollar Stamps' Bold Butterflies stamp set, which seems to be my go-to set when it comes to a flying object-hehe-

I also drew some inspiration from the following challenges:

Sweet Sketch Wednesday #113 -- sketch

ColourQ #96 --  use Tempting Turquoise, Bashful Blue, Basic Grey, Lucky Limeade and White

and Raise the Bar #69 is back and they are having an 'Anything Goes' challenge this week

Now onto the details of the Clearly Inspired Challenge!


Challenges are on the 1st and 3rd Fridays of each month, and you'll have 2 weeks to finish each challenge.

-Participants can use any stamps or digis from any company


-Only one entry per person per challenge


-Prizes will be given away after both challenges for the month. The number of prizes is determined by the number of participants for the month. For every 20 entries there will be a $10 gift certificate for stamps or digis up for grabs. (For example if over the entire month there were a total of 60 participants in both challenges, there will be 3 $10 gift certificates and 3 of the featured digital images to give away.

-We will also be giving away the featured digi for every 20 entries!


Need more inspiration? Go check out Lori's Blog, home of the CIC, that is also where you enter your CAS card! Spread the word! The more entries we have, the more prizes up for grabs!


Ok, get to work! I cant wait to see what you all create!

So, so pretty, Christi! I love that your main image is the Bold Butterflies, but that you also used the Elegant Accents which has a butterfly as well. They compliment eachother so well. Beautiful color scheme too!

I can't believe that Connor is a 2nd grader. . .it just doesn't seem right :)
