Simply Sunday Challenge: All A Flutter!

If you are looking for the My Pink Stamper Pinkalicious blog hop CLICK HERE please! Thanks bunches!

**BLOG CANDY & WINNERS--I'll be announcing a TON of blog candy Monday night, so please make sure you tune in--I've been SWAMPED with design work and traveling. So tomorrow night is the night. Remember you have one week to claim your goodies. If you have won blog candy from me this month and have not received it--that's because I only mail TWICE a month--and the next big mailing is on the 15'th of this month. When you are mailing off as many as 40 packages, I just have to limit my post office runs! If you have won a sponsored blog candy (Scrap N Stuff, Memory Miser, My Pink Stamper, etc) remember that those companies mail your goodies. If you do not receive your goodies from a company after sending me an email three weeks later, then I will email them to check on it for you. So far I've not had ANY problems with this, and hope I don't--but I just want to make sure you understand how things are working.  Thanks for being understanding, as I love to bless my readers, but it's not something I must do--just something I love to do!**

I hope each of you have been enjoying a simply blessed Sunday. My Sunday has been wonderful out here in the middle of no where, in our rustic campgrounds here at Cascade Caverns. It's just absolutely breath-taking! Any day on this earth with the ones we love, is simply a BLESSED day!
I'm so blessed having you tune in today to share your day with me--thank you! I soooo appreicate you being here!
Now that it's Sunday afternoon, so it's time for another Simply Sunday challenge here at Getting Cricky! Who's ready! YAY!!! I am!

Lovely Butterflies Stamp set (You can Win this entire collection)
I have this absolutely beautiful stamp  collection from Loralie Designs called Lovely Butteflies. It has so many beautiful images--so versatile! It looks like it only has the three images, but the actual preview NEVER shows how many stamps are in her set--there are about 9 images in this one!

All A Fluttter card
Using this beautiful stamp, here is the card I made. It was VERY late last night when I was making my card, so I didn't even pull out my Cricut! How sad is that!? lol! It was a very simple card to do, and I made the sweetest glitter coated wire flourishes! Make sure you watch my video tutorial to see how EASY these are to make! It just adds a nice detail to your flower clusters!
