Lily the Fairy

I don't think I really need to tell you guys how much I love Lily. She's just awesome to color and put on cards. And she makes me smile - EVERY time. This is a digital image of Lily that I got from the Pink Cat Studio Blog. About 2 weeks ago, Melissa was having a contest with this faboo Lily image. I just printed out the image and made this card. Well, not JUST. I colored 3 images before I was happy with my colors, then I had to decide if I wanted a circle, square or what shape, then how many layers and which paper should I have. Phew. Then, embellishments. Hmmmm. I did just happen to order some dew drops that I thought would be perfect, but they didn't get here in time, so I had to run to Michael's to find something and it's a good thing I did, cuz the dew drops were not the right color green. *sigh* Finally. And, no, I didn't win, (which irritates my mom to no end. please, don't get her started) but I'm just so glad that I got this image to play with. And Melissa had so much fun drawing Lily as a fairy that she's making a whole Lily the Fairy set! Yes, way! Now, you guys know you will soo be the first to know when I get it. Cuz of course, I will be getting it.

OK, so I'm maybe a tad biased. But I did like your card the best. As an artist, I know what colors work well together and with Marcy as an instructor, I sure as heck have learned about good composition. Your cards always have both great composition and fabulous color choices. Not to mention their elegance, which I love. Throwing everything but the kitchen sink on a card does not make it great. Oh well, you certainly won in my eyes! And I do love this card. So cute!

I love your choice of colors, too. And that Lily is just as cute as a button. I vote for your card, too.

I thought this was just a stamp blog for people who stamp (my only stamps go on the bills I mail) but it's more! You managed to sneak in stuff about your life and the family and your irrepressible personality!
I shoulda known.
