I Sure Do Love This Little Fairy!

Hello friends!  Welcome again.  Pull up a comfy chair and have a look around.  I hope you enjoy your stay.

Today I have a project for the challenge over at Mo's Challenge Blog.  This week it is Anything Goes.  Since it is October I decided to pull out my favorite fall fairy, Fall Fairy Jensen.  I know, I know....this is the third time I have used him since Mo introduced him.  But he is SO cute you'll forgive me, right?
 See?  He's adorable, right?  This time I tinted the tips of his wings with orange and gave him red hair.  I just love this little guy!
 Of course my layers are sewn and inked.  The text paper is an old SU French Script background stamp.  I added lace and ric rac from my stash.  My daughter had a box of acorns she collected so I helped myself (with her permission) to a few.  These caps were still attached to each other which I thought was very cool.  I hung them from some taupe pearl cotton.
 Here's the whole project.  I made a calendar to go in my studio.  Years ago a friend's husband made this plaque for me so I could hang a calendar sheet from it.  I haven't used it in years and it took a little searching to find it, but find it I did!  I made the calendar myself in Microsoft.  The acorn border is from K&Co a couple years ago.  It's perfect!  I added 2 more acorns.  I glued the pearl cotton to the caps so I could hang them.  The pearl cotton is simply looped around the card stock.
Here's a close up of the acorns.  Can you tell they are real?  I spent a while deciding what I should put on here for embellishment and I was so excited when I remembered she had these!

I am entering my calendar in the following challenges:
Mo's Challenge Bog - Anything Goes
Tuesday Alchemy - Anything But a Card or a Tag
Digi Tuesday - Text Me!
Divas by Design - Texture
The Paper Shelter - Anything

I think that's about it.  Thanks for taking a peek!
