Bear Hugs from DoveArt Studios

The new stamp line is out and I have some yumminess to show you with one of the stamps.  This cute little teddy bear "Maynard" will melt your heart with his fuzzy personality.  This image came from a lovely little bear hand made by dear friend and bear-maker Laure who has extreme talent in creating life from fur and trinkets.  Every stitch is made with love.  You can see her amazing work HERE.  I designed him around one of her delightful bears "Ginger snap".  You can buy him in rubber at CC Designs.

Friend WITH Coffee

Here is a little coloring fun with an image from Saturated Canary.   I have been going through my colored images and making cards with them while using up some of my scrap paper...oh what a good feeling :)  Only a short time now and I will have a handful of baby and my time will be limited so I thought I would create while I still can.  Enjoy!!

You are my Favorite Monkey

Something about a sock monkey just puts a smile on my face.  So when I saw this image from Little Miss Muffet Stamps I HAD to have it.  I was very happy with the outcome.  I added the details of the eyes to the image but loved the look either way.  If you are a monkey lover you might want to get your hands inky over this one!!
