Exciting Times!

Fairies on Tiptoe - Lili of the Valley
I am excited and humbled to announce that I am one of five new people selected to join the DT for the Sketch Saturday Challenge Blog!  Woo-hoo!  I love sketch challenges, and am already inspired by the talent of the other gals on the DT.  As near as I can tell, the DT is composed of a variety of women from Europe and the U.S..  What an example of how small and connected our world has become with the internet!

My first official challenge is a week from Saturday, but I thought I'd enter a card in this week's sketch.  The sponsor is Lili of the Valley, and this sweet fairy is one of their images.  She is colored with Copics and the papers are from My Mind's Eye - The Sweetest Thing.  I made her for a woman who is retiring from where I work.  Her passion, dedication, and vision will be missed.  I wanted to let her know how grateful I am, and what is better than a card?!?

The card will be posted in these challenges:
Lili of the Valley-June challenge use a sentiment

Use It Tuesday - anything goes

Designed to Color - photo inspired challenge - the colors in the photo and the script in the background on the wall are my jumping off point for this card
