My own little fairies
When I saw these sweet fairies at Stamping Bella, my heart melted. Little did I realize how much these babies were going to really suck me in! Two of my daughters just gave me two granddaughters and they were 16 days apart! Two totally different personalities and each one just suited my favorite little fairies. Funny how that works sometimes.
This is Eloise Greengrass and she so reminded me of Jennifer with her bright, curious eyes. I colored her in purples and lilacs because that was her favorite color. Purple everything! Every time I'd ask her what color she'd like something in, it was always purple! Eloise's face is just so stinkin cute, just like Jennifer and her Emma's is. Every time I look at Eloise I think of them.
Miss Twinkle Fairy so reminds me of Tiffany and Allie. Tiff was helping Patty, a girl who used to live with us when my ex-husband was out on deployment, wash her car. Tiff was always playful and loved to get people's attention. She yelled at Patty, "Watch me run Patty!" She was so excited to show off that when Patty turned around to see her, Patty didn't have enough time to stop Tiffany from running right into a tree in the front yard! Luckily, she'd just started to take off and only had a small bump on the head but when I was Twinkle Fairy, this story and Tiffany just came to mind. She looks like she's off to hurry to some adventure. After spending time with our Allie for a couple of days and hearing how she's developing, I think Allie's going to give her mother as many belly laughs as Tiff gave us!
Both of them were with my Prismacolor pencils and OMS. The background paper is from DCWV and I can't remember the name of the peach colored paper. I picked up the ribbons from Joann's. I used my clear jelly roll for their wings.
So these two cards are for four of the five fairies in my life, Jennifer, Emma, Tiffany and Allie. Nichole, my little snowboarder, you're next, but just you! Gosh, it's wonderful when your chidren bring magic into your life. Enjoy!
