Tam the Thistle Fairy

Good Morning All I hope you are all well, our weather has take another turn and its dull and cold and looks like rain, well at least we had one week of summer lol.
Have you seen these gorgeous Fairies from  Nikky Hall at Polkadoodles, I just love them, I have got 4 of them but had to do Tam first as he is wearing his kilt with pride, and anyone that knows me well will know I love all things Scottish. I have coloured him with promarkers and fleximarkers, spellbinders label die cut, Tartan papers, ribbon and gems are from my stash and the thistle flowers where a gift from my sister. the sentiment reads, Lang may yer Lum reek, which tanslated means long my your chimney smoke, in other words wishing you good fortune.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges.

Hi Kevin, isn't Tam gorgeous, I love your card and yes I agree those Polkadoodles fairies are gorgeous, I might have to treat myself!

Hope you are having a good weekend despite the weather, it's still warm and sunny here in Cheshire so we're making the most of it while it lasts and getting some gardening done.

Hi Kevin
Tom is brilliant, I love the image and he looks a real scot, won't ask what's under his kilt.
We had a bad Friday with rain and thunder, sun came out to play yesterday and today but we have a breeze that is keeping it a bit cooler.

Donna Ellis said...

So do you play bagpipes, too, Kevin? :-) LOVE your image - how imaginative to have a thistle fairy. But mostly, I am in awe of the details in the plaid kilt. Wow! And yes, I am old enough to say it - I owned two kilts with the fringe and large gold "pin" down the front side to keep the wind from blowing the kilt open. I loved my kilts. Your colors look fabulous - right down to the green shoes. hugs, de
