Good morning everyone! A day late and a dollar short!
This is my story!
1. I was not sure what I was gonna do for this fun challenge that Marie wrote.....I was thinking, thinking, thinking....
2. Then I had to do a little shopping and I was in a department store and wasn't paying attention to where I was walking and literally bumped into a display rack of bear Christmas ornaments! Light Bulb.
3. So I purchased one with MaryLou's initial on it (there is an M behind the scarf), made her a card and yippee! No more thinking....thinking....thinking......
I was gonna get one with Brownie's initial on it but the MaryLou side of my brain won out!
I realize I won't get any extra cookies but hey, no worries! I don't REALLY forget where I hide them each week! Bwahahahaha!

Oh my gosh be still my heart. If that isn't the cutest thing ever. You are so talented. Look at your bear card-he's absolutely precious. I love his initial and sweet little scarf. This is extraordinary-I just love it!

Mudder this is just the sweetest EVER!!! Personally I just love when God takes over when I can't think...it was a beautiful story of serendipity that you shared with us. Your bear ornament and bear card are just so adorable! I love how you created him and the wonderful way that you gave him texture. I would love to be like you when I grow up - but there isn't much of a chance of that happening soon. No worries, there will still be only one like you! Thanks so much for your inspiration and for being part of MaryLou's tea party. Big Hugz!!
My time is not mine to have, but mine to share

Aw, so sweet! I have a Christmas angel bear and a couple of little ones from Crate & Barrel that I can never bear to put away, ha ha, they stay out all year. MaryLou will love both those sweeties, and I'm so happy to be next door to them.

OMG!! Nuttin' like an idea hitting you in the butt, but what an idea! Super adorable! This is a real treasure that you have made, Cindy, especially with MaryLou's initial! What a wonderful talent you have! What a joy to look at too!!
