A little Fairy Giveaway

Last night I worked on this little fairy using Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage wings and papers (from the Earthy Paper Pad). It's very overcast here today, so it's not a good photo.. I'll try to retake it if there's more sun tomorrow. Here's hoping!
Anyway I'd love to give her away to a good home. All you have to do I leave a comment (in this post)... and I'll put your name in the drawing. I'll even add a little something to the give away each day.. so in the end you get little miss fairy girl and some goodies. I'll post each day, what I'm adding. On Friday I'll draw the name and announce the winner.



I also want to share with you a photo of the great canvas my friend Bec gave me. I LOVE IT! It's done with a photo of my boys , that she took this fall. She is an amazing photographer!

I'm also SO Excited that it's official.... my friend Catherine is coming to visit this summer!!!! She has her tickets booked and it's a go! I'm so excited! We've been talking about this for some time, I'm so glad it's finally going to happen! YAY!

when my fingers staid just still,
this art that makes me happy,
my heart it so just filled,
A fairy,sweet and heartwarming,so cute, etherial and sweet, was looking straight upon me, and swept me off my feet.
To cup that gorgous fairy, between my fingers bend, would make my every
