Forrest Pixie

Happy Wednesday to you. I am so happy it is my first day off of work, every summer I get laided off work and now my summer can begin!  I also have about 4 weeks of no kids home during the day. Woot- woot!
With today being Wednesday it is also time for Sweet Sketch Wednesdays. We have one of our great sponsors this week A Day for Daisies. I am a big fan of A Day for Daisies.   This weeks winner will get a $12 gift voucher at the ADFD shop. Tammy  has some of the best whimsical digi images from fairy tales to Sentiments. I find new images everytime I check out her shop.
We have a fun sketch for you this week. The diamond was a little bit of a challenge for me.
And here is the card that I have made. 
I used the darling Wonder pixie, just look at those eyes...wide with wonder. I wanted to keep a wood theme so I used darker colored papers. Be sure to stop by the rest of the DT and leave some loving and I am looking forward to seeing what you create with this weeks sketch challenge. 
Oldie but a goodie Challenge- Things with wings ( I Used the buttons they are about 4 yrs old and my papers are about 1 yr old.)

Oh Heide I do love your card and this Pixie has the most amazing green eyes people buy contact lenses to get that effect. Love your colours and your wonderful embellishments they work perfectly with this image. Oh what do you do to get laid off every summer that would be lovely to have your holiday's off for the whole of summer. I've had the last 13 years off bringing up my boys and I've now gone into my hubby's office a few days a week and I can't get over how I'm so out of my routine. It might be old age. Take care and have a lovely week.

Lucky you to have some time off in the Summer! I can't remember the last time I even had a whole week of vacation at this point! Your little pixie is terrific with those green eyes and the swirls and buttons are very fun too.

Peace & Luv,
