Sending Hugs!

I'm not usually big on Teddy Bears. But when I saw this sweet chubby bear with his little friends and the old fashioned mailbox, I was smitten. What a charming scene!!! The image is called Team Effort by Penny Black. I love that all these sweet animals are working together to get this letter out. The sentiment is from the set Thinking of You Messages by Hero Arts.

And the Girl Friday dp by Cosmo Cricket......Yummy colors and patterns!! I used the largest Labels II Nestabilities shape (Spellbinders) behind the Oval Nestabilities.
