That's Tink. She insisted on coming to the party & I couldn't refuse ... she hasn't been to a party in more than 100 years, poor thing (neither have I, for that matter).
Of course she didn't have anything to wear. Together we were able to find just the right fabric to make a new party dress and wouldn't you know it, it took much longer to make than we anticipated. When she'd gotten dressed and was ready to go, we were in such a hurry we nearly left all the lemon poppy seed bread on the table (please ... help yourself - we brought plenty to share). If it hadn't been for faithful Fern ...
... I'm certain that we would have left it behind.
We decided to take a short cut to the party. Little did we know that we'd come accross a most amazing butterfly crossing (first time I've witnessed this magical moment). What an amazing sight that was! I do wish I had my camera with me ... 10,000+ butterflies in any and every color you can imagine (silver, gold, magenta, blue - even speckled like robin's eggs, jeweled toned & calico, too). They flew in on the whisper of a silken sweet breeze & blew kisses to us, the sky and the trees and then, almost as quickly as they appeared ... they were gone.
Before too long Tink was wiped out, so we stopped to rest our feet. While we rested I remembered the elements series I had done:
I realized it's been way too long since I have played with my colored pencils. Not too long after that, we were on our way again and now we are finally here. Hope we are not to late ...
Thank you for having us, eb, everything looks so beautiful, the food smells divine & your guests, well your guests look so joyful ... please excuse us while we mingle.
