Ooops a daisy!

I would just like to say thank you all so much for visiting my blog whether you left comments or not, I am thrilled by every visit.
Last week was err, interesting to say the least, so if you didn't get a personal thank you for your comment (if you have an email addy) I apologise and say thank you, thank you ;0)

Ooops a daisy Buttercup!!!
Meet Buttercup. 


She is a little embarrassed as you have caught her as she just fell out of a tree.  
Well honestly, have you  heard of anything so silly as a fairy falling out of a tree?  
She will be fine soon just as long as you don't tell the others fairies how clumsy she is.

Buttercup is painted using Prismacolour pencils and watercolours.  She has been added to a digital background and some little flowers applied.

I can't wait to get over to The Summer of Colour and see what next weeks colour is.  Hope you pay a visit too as there is some awesome art to see there.
Hugs Alis

Ah, poor Buttercup. Her secret is safe with me, I'm known for my clumsiness too, if I can't find anything else to fall over I tend just to use my own feet to trip myself up ;-) She's adorable.

Well I think that Buttercup and Primrose should be friends don't you? She is very sweet and might be able to cheer Primrose up a bit.
