The Fairy Cake Delema . . .

I have been struggling with how to illustrate "fairy cakes" without being too redundant and typical. This is pretty typical, but was sure fun to draw. Still trying to doodle this one out. Not 100% happy but moving along. I just found out that the ATC swap I am doing this for is mixed media not just illo. Bummer . .. Oh well . .. ") Maybe a few of these will make it into some Birthday cards. Ta-ta!

New Birthday Card!

I was supposed to be working on an Artist Trading Card mixed media swap "fairy cakes" but got distracted. This was the pre-doodle to get the ideas going. My girls are all about fairies these days. Fairy houses have once again taken over our garden!
