Allsorts Week 458 Fairy Tales and Nursery Rhymes

Hi All Happy Saturday Ellie is hosting this week with the theme

***Fairy Tales or Nursery Rhymes***

I think there are so many wonderful stamps out there that would be great for the theme. I don't want this to be a complicated challenge and you don't have to use stamps marketed as "fairy tale" or "nursery rhyme", just as long as it's something you would find in a story, or maybe a sentiment that reminds you of a fairy tale or nursery rhyme, it's good to go. Please do mention which fairy tale/nursery rhyme you've been inspired by. 

I have listed a few  stories you could use as your inspiration......

3 little pigs, the Tale of Peter Rabbit, Chicken Little, The Ugly Duckling, The Little Mermaid, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland,  Tinkerbell, Hickory Dickery Dock, Ring Around the Roses, Frog Princess...and there are so many more! We can't wait to see what you come up with!

Mine is the Owl and The Pussycat (minus the pussycat and the pea green boat)


This week we are sponsored by:

giving away these wonderful Wizard of Oz themed stamps to one lucky winner.
