Oh Sue, this is heartwarming... and a perfect card for your dear hubby! That image is one of the sweetest I've seen! I look forward to checking out that line of images.. they melt my heart! you've colored it so beautifully, including the spectacular landscape. The papers are positively exquisite! Dovecraft is incredible. I wish every line was always in production because this is my favorite snowflake paper ever. The hearts and snowflakes sparkling with joy as accents is truly beautiful. Stunning work as always, my friend. I hope your day is as lovely as you!

coldwaters2 said...

Do you know Sue I get so emotional when I see images like this I feel I would love to join in for a group hug, lol, I have a special fondness for the Polar Bear probably because it seems to be in a dangerous situation at this time on mother earth. To me this is both magical and spectacular.
