A wee little fairie and remembering Spring

Over at the lovely Our Beautiful World blog, today's theme is FRESH. I remembered taking a photo last year of a magnolia tree after it had rained, when everything looked so sparkly clean and FRESH. I decided to go with one of those photos -

It is difficult to remember beautifully sunny Spring days right now, when we are having so many cold, grey, rainy days. Even snow would be a welcome change, lol. 

Over at the Tag Tuesday blog, the theme for the week was Myths and Legends, and boy, did that give me a headache! There were so many possibilities, unicorns, mermaids, giants, dwarves, leprechauns etc etc., it made my head spin thinking about them all. In the end, I went with fairies. Who doesn't love fairies? I picked a sweet little chubster of a fairie baby and her pet butterflies for the tag -

Wishing you all a great new week, toodlepip xxx

Dear Liz, your tag is so gorgeous, I LOVE the blue colour you used for the butterfly, and the petite fairie-and the background is just perfect for this sweetie and for her friends the butterflyes!!

Your tag is so pretty. LOVE the fairie adorable. Your layers of texture, stamps and butterflies is wonderful. I love the charm on the bottom, too! I LOVE charms. Did I ever tell you that?
That baby is so sweet!

Gorgeous tag and photo Liz! I love that little fairy and the beautiful blue... Blue, which reminds me of blue skies, which I haven't seen for way too long. It's such dull weather here too!
Wishing you a beautiful (blue sky!) day. Hugs

Thanks so much for your sweet comment on my cards, dear Liz. Maybe one really should not apologize for not creating something "intellectual" but be happy about the fun, something playful can evoke. Anyway, I am happy to have found you here, as you yourself show so many crafty and artistic facets. Thank you for this inspiration!

i'm visiting from Our Beautiful World and you are right, it is difficult to remember sunny spring days at this time of year. seeing your fresh magnolia bud helps me remember that it will come again though.
a very pretty shot~!

Lovely photo....the colours of magnolias is so an instant it brings back memories for me of these great blooms on a tree in my in-laws front yard.
