     I've fallen madly in love with AuroraWings' darling little sprites and this Dandelion Sprite is no exception.   Their challenge theme this time is "Sprite Delight" and you just have to use a hand-colored sprite on your project to enter.

I chose my colors from the challenge at The Outlawz.
I used the center diagonal row of yellow, lt brown, & green 
and added the gold mesh for the lace.

     The image is colored with ProMarkers and I added glitter gel ink to the dandelion seeds but it just doesn't show in the photo.  The sentiment was printed on the same piece as the image.  The fancy edge was made with a Cheery Lynn border die and the flower is from Recollections, dyed with a marker.  Everything is put onto a dark brown CS base.

     Yesterday was day 7 in our over-100 degree heat wave and there's just no relief in sight.  The weather folks are predicting that on Monday we'll be at 99 instead of 100 but, I'm sorry, my body fails to detect the difference.  Hot is hot!  If you're also suffering from high heat, be sane and stay indoors.  Craft your heart out and post lots of inspiration for the rest of us.  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Oh Connie, this is gorgeous, I too love these cute sprites too. Love the colours. We must be telepathic as I have posted a card with similar colours and a sprite too.

Love the yellow and orange on the Dandelion Sprite, NanaConnie. The CAS design with a pretty edge and a single flower is very charming! Sounds like it's really hot where you are. ^^; We're expecting 100 degrees for the high today where I live, too. Thank you for joining "Sprite Delight II" challenge at Aurora Wings.

What a sweet little image and she has a real feel of summertime to her blowing the dandy lion heads.....when I was a child we used to call them fairies.

Many thanks for joining our dies and punches theme at Stamping Sensations challenge.
