If its the log it's adorable...the bark is amazing.

I think the cut part could use a few more lines and the holly berries could be more ball shaped, but that's looking for something to critique.

sorry i did miss it, i just glanced and saw fairies, didnt realize they were christmas fairies icon_redface.gif

anyway, it is simply adorable, i just love it. the bark is great, and the figures are awesome. i cant imagine how long this must have taken, but it was sure worth it.

you should be proud! thumbs_up.gif

How adorable!

my thoughts/suggestions would be to vein your holly leaves and dry them so they have a bit of "movement" -not just flat.

Also, cut out flat fondant dots for your adorable mushrooms.

love the log bark and the whimsical little fairies.
