I Grant You One Wish

Good morning stamping friends.  I apologize for not visiting your lovely blogs lately.  Our family took a vacation to Florida and I spent most of my time relaxing on the beach.  We had beautiful weather, fabulous food, and a wonderful week of family time.  I think we all came home with some great memories ;)  I barely even turned on my laptop while we were gone.  Then the day after we arrived home, I came down with a horrible bug.  I'm so glad I didn't get sick until after we were home but that bug really knocked me off my feet for a couple of days.  So I will be around to catch up on your beautiful creations over the next few days.

Today I have a sweet little fairy to show.  This sweetie is I Grant You One Wish and you can find her and lots of other gorgeous fairies over at Funky Kits.  

She's colored with copics and colored pencils and I added lots of Glamour Dust so she would sparkle.  The sentiment is by PTI and the snowflakes are from a My Favorite Things die-namic.  I followed the lovely Maria Therese's sketch over at The Sugar Bowl Challenge.  Did you know that you may win fabulous Sugar Nellie stamps by entering their challenges?  Be sure to stop by and check out the details on their challenge blog.

Thank you so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful day.

Hugs, Anita
