Cards, Sales and Cupcakes!

It's been a hive of activity here in the world of Bumpkin Bears. The bears and I have been busy creating individual note cards of most of my prints so you can now pick and choose which you would like from my Etsy store.

I was inspired by a gorgeous pastel coloured set of cupcakes I saw in a Country Living magazine and immediately had this image in my mind -

"One cake is never quite enough thought Bear as he rubbed his tummy. He never could resist Cupcakes and thought if he disguised himself with the cherry on his head that the other bears would not notice if he had just one more!"

This print "One Cupcake is never enough" is available in my store or directly from me.

You may have noticed I created a new banner here with The Merry Band of bears announcing our Easter Sale from now until April 12th. We are offering a bear rolling 25% discount off all our Prints. So they hope you have fun exploring.

The daffodils in my garden are flowering, I'll share some photos over the next few days. Thanks for popping by,
Beary Hugs, Catherine and the Bears xx

I love that banner and I LOVE your drawings. I just love to stop by and look at my little bears on paper friends.
Say, I'm going to take my blog private for a while and I am taking you with me. As you know we are still fighting for our house, and the opposing counsel (other guy's attorney) has read my blog in court ... so I have this feeling all the time that I have to guard my tongue and I hate that. So I am adding your e mail address to the "allow" list so you can still read my blog.

Come on by if you get the time.



p.s. If you have any trouble seeing my blog, please e mail me at

Hi Catherine,

I love your cards ~ especially the bears sitting around the fireplace, ever so cute.

Glad that Spring is in the air for you ~ isn't is so lovely to see the crocuses pop out of the ground, especially after all the snow and cold weather you have had.
We have a friend, living in Belgium and he can't get over how cold it is over there.

Have a great weekend

Such a great idea to balance the cherry on top of the bear's head. x
