Bear Hugs! And the new Grand Prize contest starts!

You tug at my heartstrings. Doesn't this image? I know she does for me. She's just the cutest! That's one of those images that I can look at and just immediately know that artist Elisabeth Bell is the creator. Sweet Pea Stamps just came out with this stamp and there's three new stamps that are being released this month from Elisabeth Bell (Click here). Here's a closeup of the image, colored with copic markers
I hope you enjoy this card and will go check out the new Sweet Pea stamps. I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day. I myself did, just a quiet in home celebration with my husband. I also made some sweet treats and took them to the Doctor's office to thank him and his staff as this weekend marked the exact 2 year anniversary of the brain surgery that stopped the seizures.

Be sure and leave a comment today. THIS Posting will now be the main blog candy and winners will now be selected from this posting everyday for the rest of the month!!

grandmalee said...

She's gorgeous, Holley! I love that you still remind your doctor how blessed you've been thanks to his skills as a surgeon. Too bad other people don't take the time like you do to thank others that have done something special for them, no matter how small! You're cards are always a great pick me up everyday, so I should thank you for helping me be in a better mood everyday. I also realize that no matter how bad I think I have it, someone always suffers through so much more than me. God bless!

WendyH. said...
