Deep Summer_Dandelion Sprite

This is the Dandelion Sprite by Aurora Wings.  The Sam Keen sentiment reads:  "Deep summer is when laziness finds respectability."  The sprite is colored in Prismacolor pencils, touched with stickles and clear star and yellow and green glitter pens. (Shuttle Art) The artpiece is matted on green embossed paper on daffodil delight (SU) paper.   She's for the Anything Goes Challenge #53 at Aurora Wings this month.

 The inside of the card reads: 

Oh Dandelion, yellow as gold
What do you do all day?
"I just wait here in the tall green grass
Till the Children come out to play."

Oh dandelion, yellow as gold
What do you do all night?
"I wait and wait till the cold dews fall
And my hair grows long and white."

And what do you do when you hair is white

And the children come out to play?

"They take me up in their dimpled hands.
And blow my hair away."

When we lived in Washington state all summer long we fought and fought dandelions!  And so did all of the neighbors.  They appeared overnight and seemed to seed before we could get them "rounded up!"  I will send this card to my friend who still lives next door to where we were, because she's got a field of yellow right now again!


  1. Too cute for words, Priss! We seem to be welcoming a whole hoard of these babies in our yard this summer. I'll have a better attitude about them after reading your sweet poem. Lovely coloring and texture with the embossing. Thanks so much for joining us (again) for Anything Goes at Aurora Wings. xxD
