Coming home for Christmas

The little bear pilot and his cool plane are by Ellephantastic.

Clear the runway!

This cute little bear pilot is coming in for a landing! This adorable digi was provided to us for CDACPC6 by Ellephantastic. I coloured his plane using my brightest Copic markers and added the background trees designed by Digis by Phooka. The trees and snow-covered ground are sparkling, even though it doesn’t  show up here.

This is the second of five cards for CDACPC6.

Thanks, so much, for stopping by!




Next year, Sweetie

Next year, Sweetie

It’s back to school…for the big kids!

With autumn upon us and children headed back to the classrooms, the theme for the  Crafters Digital Arts Center (CDAC) Progressive Freebie Challenge #2 is, appropriately, Back to School.

This cute image was provided to us for this challenge by Ellephantastic. Isn’t it adorable? We’ve all seen this scene, before–preschoolers waving to their big brothers and sisters as the school bus whisks them away. “Next year, Sweetie,” says Mom, “when you’re a big boy.”

Well, my family is way past the first-day-of-school stage. My children are grown and my grandchildren are heading to college next year. But I do have sweet memories of my kids,  Angie and Neil, when they were oh-so-little, climbing onto the school bus on that sunny September morning. I remember how cute they looked in their new school clothes, Angie with her pretty blond pigtails and Neil with his long blond silky bangs. I wouldn’t trade that memory for all the chocolate on the planet!

Thanks so much to Ellephantastic for providing this beautiful image for us to work with!
