Butterfly Kisses

Why hello again!  I haven't seen you in ages! I'm here for ATC's and Cards With Attitude.  Gettin' right down to the good stuff, we had 2 sponsors for Challenge 15, so that gave us TWO winners!  Now how many challenge blogs can you find with TWO winners, plus Top 3s???  And we had such fantastic sponsors- Meljens and Floppy Latte's, with happy digi winners Kate and Ali.  Our Top 3's went to Livert, CaryAnn, and Tracey McDonald, with an honorable mention to Alyce at Kit and Clowder!  Congratulations to you talented ladies!  Such lovely entries this challenge.

On to our current challenge at ATC's, #16 ANYTHING GOES, sponsored by the great Delicious Doodles giving the random winner 4 images!  Plus, we have our Top 3 winners who receive a special badge for their side-bar!  Wonderful, don't you think?  All the above in one challenge blog!  Well, actually 2 challenge blogs because you can enter into our sister challenge also, Fat Pages and Cards With Attitude!

My little bit larger than an ATC (3.5"X2.5") is Delicious Doodles' Fairy Fae.  She is so beautiful.  Reminded me of when us kids would give my Mom "butterfly kisses." We would put our eyes to hers and flutter our eye lashes together.  Did you ever do that?  Sometimes I still do!

Fairy Fae was colored with Prisma pencils and OMS.  Added some Glossy Accents to the butterflies and cut a few extra to pop around.  Added a rose given by a friend.  Framed her with black card stock then pop-dotted her onto a black card.  Inside is a piece of lavender parchment on which to write a note.  I am sending this to my Momma in California to remind her of Butterfly Kisses.  We may be able to visit soon, so I'll give her some myself!

OK, done with post 2, on to number 3!
