Mother Love

The challenge this week at Sugar Creek Hollow is called FAIRIES AND ANGELS and we want you to make a vintage or shabby chic card featuring one or the other.

We have a lovely returning sponsor, A Day for Daisies, and all of us on the Design Team have used fabulous images from the sponsor in our inspiration for you.  There are loads of wonderful fairies and angels so make sure you rush over to A Day for Daisies and pick some up and then enter the challenge.  Our sponsor is providing one random winner with a $12 gift certificate to the store and Sugar Creek Hollow will provide a winner's badge to display.  In addition, the Design Team will select their Top Pick and the creator will also receive a winner's badge and will be in the running for a monthly Guest Designer spot.

All children are little angels, aren't they?  Well at least when they are newborns.  Certainly all Mothers are fairies, angels, warriors, saints and just about every other adjective you can think of so when I saw this image, I knew I wanted to create with it.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:
