 Crafty Little Fairies. As from today, we are a monthly challenge. The
Pink fairies and Blue fairies have combined, and together will have
a new challenge for you on the first Thursday of each month.

Our first monthly challenge theme is a lovely one you're sure to enjoy...

Yippee, this month we have five...yes, you read that correctly...FIVE 
wonderful sponsors, so there are plenty of chances for you to win. 
However, don't forget that to be eligible for a prize, you must use
