I hope you like them...I do Smiley They were hard to send away but I know they went to good homes Cheesy

Who knew that mythical beasties would lend them selves so well to the alphabet?  So which were the hardest letters to find something for?

Thank you so much everyone!!

It was a bit tricky to come up with I and X, I had a look at this website http://www.mythbeasts.com for some ideas.

It was supposed to be family friendly so I wasn't too sure about Incubus Tongue

Xan is .... "A magnificent creature from the myths of the Kicher people of Guatemala. The Xan is mentioned in the Popul-Vuh. When the two heroes Hunapu and Xabalanque went to the underworld of Xibalba, they created Xan from a strand of hair. Xan transformed into a mosquito. They told the insect Your food shall be the ones that you bite on the road. Xan then went ahead through the underworld to act as a pathfinder. He then found the Lords of Xibalba and bit both of them discretely. The two Lords argued with each other and revealed their names, a piece of information that the heroes needed." Some of the stories were really cool Smiley

They look spectacular together! Your inchies are awesome. Lovely background and adorable drawing style! Super happy that I have my hands on a few of them~  Cheesy


AND THE INCUBUS IS AMAZING. That's one of ultimate favorite bands ever! So glad that I got it. <333
