Pansy Hello To You!!

Hi, There!

I hope my post finds you well and starting a week of crafting when you can and making that little bit of time needed for yourself.  We all need that little bit of downtime to quiet our inner spirits.  So hard to do when we juggle so "many things" in our lives.  But that is my wish and prayer for you today that you can refresh your spirit!

Now this little sprite from Aurora Wings is just so cute and I want to thank the artist, Mitzi Sato-Wiuff for this beautiful line art.  It was so much fun to color up!!  I did alter your sketch request on your challenge so I am hoping I didn't go too far with that.  

Thanks for stopping by, till next time, hugs and blessings ~ CaroleAnn
