Do you believe in Fairies?

Ahhh, Friday. Love that word. Rolls of the tongue, doesn't it? :) It does. Thank goodness it's Friday. Friday. Can you TELL I'm excited? :) I just LOVE the weekends!

Incase you missed out on the action over here yesterday, check THIS post to see some awesome new The Greeting Farm goodness! ;) You don't wanna miss it. Oh, and while you're at it.. check out The Greeting Farm Blog too, for DAY TWO of previews!

So, do YOU believe in fairies?! I sure do. :) HA. I wish they were real. It'd be like a whole magical little world. */cough* Regardless of whether they're real or not, they're sure real enough over at Some Odd Girl. Have you SEEN the fairy digis? I'm in LOVE! I say that every time I use a SOG image though, I know.

So, you guys know about the up and coming FB fun day, right? Well in the run up to all of that excitment, plus the brand new digi release on Monday 25th.. the oddies have set a WEEK LONG challenge for us all to join in with..


"Non Traditional Hair Challenge"

So. I went with green. LOL!! I was gonna pick pink.. or blue.. none traditional hair colours I've already tried in the past. Why do that when you can try something NEW?! :) I used Mint Green, Soft Green, Grey Green and Emerald for you PM Junkies who're wondering.

How beautiful is Dandelion Fairy?! VERY!! I haven't used the whole image, I've cut her out using the second largest standard circle nestie. A pretty CAS card for me.. I wanted all eyes on this cutie. I've used some papers from My Minds Eye and coloured the image to match.

The 'Believe' sentiment is from Nouveau Girls - Believe. Stamped in Rose Red from SU! I used CC Designs mushroom? toadstool? die and cut some vellum. I've adhered it using some Doodlebug brads and that was job DONE. I'm not mad on the placement of those brads now, but I had to choose places where the vellum wouldn't rip. Gahh. Never mind! :)

So I'm entering this into the Facebook Fun Day Challenge. :)

Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your Friday! :)
