Fairy Fae and Butterflies


Whew, that was a muggy day yesterday. Still rather warm indoors today but much fresher outside. At least we were spared those awful floods. I feel so sorry for anyone affected by them.

I downloaded Google Chrome to use for my blog. I have no idea how it works with Internet Explorer but am using it for the first time today and it is so much faster. More like using the IPad. Amazing.

I bought some digis from Delicious Doodles the other day and had great fun colouring in this gorgeous fairy. It's the first time I have tried colouring an image like this and I am rather pleased for a first attempt.
