It's The Christmas Fairy introducing a new Design Team!



My Blog Candy ends on March 31 - click here and scroll down for details.



Exciting news!

I now have the pleasure of designing for:

The One,
.... The ONLY,
Scrapbook Stamp Society
home of the most adorable digi images, rubber stamps, and a fabulous array of products and crafting goodies.

This month at Scrapbook Stamp Society, we are featuring images by Artists Mitzi Sato Wiuff and Morgan Fitzsimmons.

With March's crazy weather, it is only natural for Mitzi's sweet little Christmas Fairy to be confused. 

After all... is it Spring or is it Christmasy cold?

I haven't figured it out myself even down here in warm, snuggly Florida, where we have had two nights of freezing temperatures! (What's with that?)

Still, she is so adorable, even in her confused state of mind, and could easily be adapted for any time of year.

Mitzi has 40 other wonderfully imaginative images which may be used in a number of ways. Just click here to see more of her amazing artwork.

Check it out (in the above photo)! Her little fur trim is accentuated with sparkly white flocking, and glitter followers her wherever she goes.

I think her name needs to be changed from Christmas Fairy to Joyful Song. What a sweetie she is.

I really had fun coloring this whimsical little creature, especially with the natural shading in her wings.  (thanks for all your pointers left in a previous post regarding Copic Markers).

The snowflakes are frosty with the sparkly flocking, too. The sparkly flocking is from Sparkle N Sprinkle.

(thank you for your well wishes. I am slowly recovering and am just about caught up visiting everyone's blogs).
