Elliot Valentine

I hope you all had a wonderful Holiday! We had a house full of family and I ate way to much :-) But, I had a great time and that's what counts, right? Here is a new Valentine image of Elliot the Bear. He is the perfect compliment to Emma Bear. Tomorrow I will be posting another Winter image. Enjoy! Hugs,

Dance with me my Darling!

This one I couldn't resist. :-)  You have ALWAYS seen Rosie the Elephant looking beautiful, right? For Valentine's Day (or any day) I decided to give her a beau to dance with. Isn't he handsome? It gave me another idea (and I bet you are thinking the same thing) After Christmas, I'll draw up some images of Bigsby and Herbert with their new love interests :-)

Have a wonderful Holiday and I'll post again after Christmas.
Hugs and love to all,

For My Valentine!

Wouldn't you like THIS handsome guy to deliver your chocolates this Valentine's day?


Whoo Hoo! Put on that little dress and give your Honey a BIG KISS! See what happens! LOL Enjoy and Hugs,

New Valentine's Images- Sweep Me Off My Feet

Here is the first of some new Valentine's images. Sorry for the delay, but I forget how long it takes to draw sometimes :-) Just like "Dancing with the Stars", here is a handsome gentleman sweeping his sweetie off her feet. So, put a flower in your hair, turn on some tunes and get moving!  Enjoy!

Hi everyone! Sandy told me that I haven't released any new images of Emma Bear in a while. She also gently (LOL) reminded me that WE STAMPERS ARE WORKING ON VALENTINES CARDS NOW SO GET MOVING!! Haha...I can take a hint :-) I still have alot to learn about your craft don't I? So here is a combo image of Emma AND Valentines Day to keep you crafters happy!

Today we are heading to Madison to see our daughter, Becca, graduate from college. Another big milestone and something to celebrate! I also wanted to take the time to thank everyone who has inspired me to keep this little blog and digi shop alive for a year now. To Dawn for putting countless hours into getting it going, to Sandy and Renata for keeping it going and running the Challenge Blogs, to all the DT's for continuing to inspire us with their beautiful cards, and finally to all of you who keep me going with your kind comments about my drawings. Thanks to everyone...check back on Monday for more Valentines and also a BIG ANNIVERSARY SALE!!! Whoo Hoo!

Love to you all! Hugs,

Old Friends

I have had this image in my mind for a while. I love the Simon and Garfunkel song from years ago. The lyrics are so sweet and conjur up memories of my parents, grandparents and even me one day.

"Old friends, old friends,

Sat on a park bench like bookends"

Here is a quote that I love... "The great secret that all old people share is that you really haven't changed in seventy or eighty years. Your body changes, but you don't change at all. And that, of course, causes great confusion." ~Doris Lessing

Here is another wonderful quote from a woman who watched this video. I couldn't agree more!! "This song has always haunted me, because I have an inordinate fear of death. But now that I'm almost 70, I realize it's not about death, but about getting old. Which is not so bad; I'm writing a novel, sketching my cats, ballroom dancing, cooking beautiful dinners for friends and family, walking in the woods with camera in hand, enjoying life. Thank you, S&G." Love to all of you this Holiday season...from someone who is 14 years away from 70 and loving every minute of it.
