An Autumn Fairy

Quick card I did for the Inspiration Challenge on SCS yesterday. This is one of the new images (Pussywillow Fairy) in the Squigglefly store this month. Norma Burnell's fairy images are hauntingly beautiful and I had so much fun coloring her up with chalks and one single little Copic marker (I was staying within THIS color pallet). Can you tell I am ready for Fall yet?

Hope your weekend is going well - I have had a blast! Went shopping Friday with hubby (unusual treat), to breakfast at Cracker Barrel with my parents and some family and friends yesterday morning, then to the Buckmaster's Convention yesterday morning (it was fun - lots of great shopping for cooking spices and Christmas presents for hunters and fishermen plus some super fish tacos for lunch), a long nap (was awesome), and then a quick 3 hour round trip to Birmingham to watch my daughter and her sorority sisters practice their rush dance routines (wow - I have never seen such energy - even at a Cheerleader competition - it was amazing).

Hugz!

  6. What a WOW factor card this is! I love that gorgeous image, the wonderful sentiment, and especially the burlap panel! Beautiful! I took a friend to lunch at Cracker Barrel on Saturday and it was so loud in there we couldn't even hear one another talk across the table! UGH!

  9. This is impressive. I love how the image is so vivid like a painting with the beautiful coloring you achieved. I too am ready for the fall. It has been scorching hot here in Georgia and I am ready for the electric bill to give me a break!!
