I have been blessed with many packages this week. My PTI paper order came in, I even chose some colors this time. My ATS order arrived as well, two new stamps from Mo Manning for Stampavie. But the best one, it came from Hero Arts--it was full of goodies and I didn't have to spend a cent on it!


Hero Arts is the most generous company, they give away so much every week, it amazes me. I've been lucky twice, I received an Honorable Mention a few weeks ago and that came with a prize. And I won during their recent release party--they called it a "prize package". The HM prize package was a gorgeous background stamp and a some HA gems--a very generous prize. I thought this prize package would be comparable---SO NOT! Lookie:



This is well over $100 in goodies, I'm still so excited, I promise I'm not bragging. I'm so grateful.

So, I decided to use goodies from all of my deliveries on one card. I love how she's colored, I sure hope I can duplicate this--I stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored her in with Koh-I-Nor pencils blended with a clear Prismacolor Art Marker (yay, no bleeding with Memento), Copics for the fleshtones and Bic Mark-its. The shading in her dress--well, let's just say that I've impressed even myself! Also, how much do you love this fairy? Mo Manning is amazing!

I LOVE this, and I don't like fairies. Maybe because she is not a skinny, cutesy thang?

You should so enter this in Dreena's first color (colour) challenge of orange and chocolate:
