Good Morning Friends!
It's that magical time again-- a new challenge at A & T Emerald Faeries!  I just love working with Emerald Faeries!  They really are fun images to color and make up into fantasy land creations. Hop over to the Challenge Blog and join us this challenge!  Use A Tag.  While you are there, you will be amazed by the other Emerald Fairy Girls!  

Here is Ally with a message for you:

Tag out with my message to you:

Oh goodness, I felt like I went wild this go!  I just kept adding goodies and boy, it was fun!  Ally is colored with Prisma pencils.  Everything is pretty much a mishmash of basic card making-  created a pocket for the sentiment; used some pink hemp from WOC; added hearts to the antennae of the bugs; ribbon with rickrack adhered to the middle; pearl earrings and pearl dots on the ladybug and caterpillar, colored with markers.  Also put Glossy Accents on the drawn bird, bugs, and heart brads.   Oh, I had some DP I had been holding onto that when you punch out the paper a zigzag frame is left over, so I used that part of the paper and framed Ally's background and the sentiment.  Along with Ally, almost all of the images are from the A & T Shop- Ki Ki the Caterpillar, the Sentiment, and the small butterfly left over from another Emerald Fairy image.  Browse the Store- you are sure to enjoy yourself and get a yearning for a fairy of your own!

Ally up close!

We are still running Bingo for another week at the A & T Challenge so you could combine your creation to enter both!   Wouldn't you just love to win an image from our shop?  And we love seeing your artwork!

Thank you much to new followers and thank you to those who always make a point to stop by and leave such lovely comments.  I appreciate you very much.

Well, this Emerald Fairy is a little sleepy so she is going to crawl under a flower and nap for a wee bit.  Faeries get to do that, you know!  Yawn!  See you again soon, my Friends.


P.S. Next post I'll tell you about the Copperheads!  Faeries really need to watch out for snakes!
