Another Flutter By challenge

Hello! I'm so sorry my post is later than usual... let's just say that me and my dial-up have not been the best of friends this morning. Ugh
Anywho, it's working now so I'm gonna be quick just in case... fingers crossed, here we go...

Alrighty today I have one of Marie's gorgeous new digi fairies to share with you. By now I'm sure you have picked up that I have a soft spot for all things 'of the fay' and these four new beauties do not disappoint! In fact the only thing that would make them better would be if we get to see them in rubber eventually... BUT for now I am more than content with the digi versions. :)
I used Summer and had a lot of fun coloring her up as I took definite creative license with what colors a fairy's skin and hair could be. In this case, light green and two-toned to match her flower... fun, fun, fun! And wouldn't you know that she works for the new Flutter By challenge today?! Woohoo! Not only do I have a fairy but butterflies too... score! Ya gotta love it when that happens!

So if you are diggin' these new fairies as much as I am be sure to check out The Greeting Farm tomorrow when they go up for sale! :)
Later gators!
