Sometimes you just need a HUG!

Happy Wednesday!

We FINALLY received some measurable SNOW!   We are sooooo doing the happy dance!  It's bright & white outside, just beautiful!

Today, I have something special to share with you!   I absolutely LOVE this sweet bunny from Doodle Pantry, Laurie's images are all so wonderful and a joy to color!


Image & sentiment by Laurie Wilson of Doodle Pantry.  
Colored with Copic markers.
Papers by Basic Grey.

This darling bunny is just one of the many digis donated as a fundraiser for Katie Renz!  Many of you have probably heard of Katie's story by now, if not, I encourage you to visit her blog HERE!  But before you leave I want to share a link with you that shows what happens when this wonderful community of crafters & design artists come together for such a special cause!


Katie is a loving wife & mommy to three young boys.  
She has inspired many of us through her lovely creations and 
wonderful tutorials over the years.



Please visit Jak Heath to see an awesome offer she has pulled together to benefit Katie & her family!!!   I love being part of this community of crafters!     Lots of love dwells here!

Please PRAY for Katie & her family as well...it's something we all can do!!!

Thank you for reading this and stopping by today!
Praying peace over you!
Be Blessed!




here are some challenges...
