Flower Fairy

Hello friends.  This sweet fairy stamp is from Stamps Happen.  I'm not sure if this stamp is retired or not.  I really enjoyed coloring it.  I used my Prismacolor pencils.  I added some Shimmerz on her wings.

My little dog, Princess, loves nature.  She will try to make friends with almost any creature that comes along.  The other night she tried to befriend a Blue Land Crab.  Fortunately, it was on the other side of the fence or she may have ended up with a nasty pinch on her nose.  The crabs are about 6" across.
Her favorite friend is one of the squirrels in our back yard.  They spend a great deal of time entertaining each other.  Here are photos of the squirrel peering down at Princess from the tree and Princess peering back up at the squirrel. 

  • Our beautiful, nature-filled back yard.  One of my favorite places.
  • I've been able to make some cards lately.
  • A good report for my daughter from her doctor.
Have a wonderful day!!!

Inky hugs!
