Bear Hugs!

Monday, February 9, 2009

Good Morning! I hope you all had a great weekend. I puttered around the house for most of it. It was nice to just be home and not have any out of town obligations.

Last Friday The Man came home with something I haven't had in the house in over two years - TIM TAMS!! Tim Tams are an Australian chocolate cookie/sandwich that I have not found easily in the US. The last time I had them was Christmas 2006 when The Man bought me a whole supply of Australian food from an importer here in the US. He found these at a somewhat local (1hr away) unique gift shop in Vermont. I was so excited to have a little taste of home this weekend that I got a little carried away and.....well, lets just say that no one else in the house got a taste! LOL

From all the blog surfing I've been doing, I know I'm WAYYY behind in showing you some Valentines Day cards, but then again, I don't want to get all 'department storie' on you and show you things three months ahead of schedule! All week I have some fun and sweet cards to show you that celebrate this heart warming holiday.

Today's card uses a stamp from Doggone Stamps, called 'Bear With Pillow'. He's a cute little thing and looks a little sad hugging his pillow. If he's anything like my little girl, he's getting some comfort from hugging it. The layout is a sketch challenge that Jana Mays put to the rest of the Doggone Stamps design team and is open to anyone who wants to play along with us. I didn't tweak it much at all since the layout is right up my alley.

If you pop over to the thread on PCP that the girls started for this sketch challenge, you can find some other fabulous cards, like Lauri Ingram's!

Tomorrow I have another Twinkling sketch challenge for you all tomorrow (it's a doozer!). Thanks for stopping by today!

He is simply adorable. Love the coloring job you did. Next time you go to the Pheasant Lane mall, shoot me over an email. Maybe we could meet there, LOL. Hard to believe that is the closest mall to Keene! They do have a much better Yankee Candle Shop than the new Hampshire Mall in Nashua :o)

This is a very cute little guy. I can't decide if he looks sad, or very, very sleepy. At any rate, he is adorable. Great job Sandra!
