  12. Hi Lisa.

    There isn't one fairy image I don't love, but my very favorite is Inner Tender. I study your coloring and the copics listed, but, alas I am not even close to your beautiful coloring. I will, however, keep trying! Kathy Bradley.

  13. Lisa your work is so exceptional and inspires me every time I see one of your projects. I am hoping you will travel to Arizona to teach! How do you pick a favorite? I do love Lisa Victoria's work so I guess I would pick the Bubble fairy (or her Dragon New arrival image).

  14. I finally had a chance to decide on my favorite image. They are all pretty designs but I think my favorite is this one: Elaine Cox's Pink Fan Mermaid. Very pretty and thanks for the chance to win these pretty images. :)
