Hi Kathie, I sure love those darling little presents and ornament. Such a nice added touch. Your image is super sweet. You did a wonderful job coloring your little teddy bear up. Boy, I could use a little summer right now. I am sick again. This is the second time in three weeks. I hope it isn't going to be a long hard winter for us.. I am so glad you are enjoying the start of your summer.
Hugs, Nancy

Oh Summer --- that is crazy LOL!! I have a silly question then - do you decorate a pine tree (or something similar) for Christmas? You know me, I always have questions for you :)

I never saw the wine in his hand - LOVE it!!!! How adorable! Love your little embellishments too!

Have a great week ~
Deanne :)

Hi Kathie!!! What a sweet card! My cats sleep under the Christmas tree just like this darling little bear. What fun embellishments along the top, how very clever!!! Great post too. Happy summer, I'm jealous as I woke up to some unexpected snow this morning. Have a wonderful week!

So super sweet and I just love the little doo dads at the top! Such a fun holiday card!

Peace & Luv,

Well this is how I look after one glass of wine too! Cutest image Kathie and your shading/coloring is absolutely perfect. I too love those "doo dads" as Jeannie put it! Happy birthday to you - a day late but sincerely meant. I hope you enjoyed your special day. And your first day of summer must be wonderful-I've thought about that all day as we got our first snowfall here in Michigan on a day with freezing cold! Just the cutest card! Have a wonderful week!
Hugs to you,
