Make sure you leave a comment when posting your card on SSW to insure that you will be entered in the Grand Prize Drawing.
Arlana's sketch.

When I picked my image for this week, I was really taken by this image called "Poppy Fairy"  In my front yard, I have several big rocks that are apart of my landscape.  I also have a big area that is a carpet of Pink Mexican Primrose in the spring and summer time. The primrose looks just like poppies.  They are really beautiful.  The thing that makes it so fun is that there are a lot of children in the neighborhood that call this area their "Princess Castle ". They love walking through the primrose in their magical kingdom.  It is fun to watch them. This image reminds me of them.
