Woodland Baby Shower

I was recently asked to create custom Baby Shower invitations and gift tags from my "Time for an Adventure" Print. It was my delight to do this for such a special occasion. It sounds like it is going to be so beautiful, with 8 ft tall maple trees, clear crystal prisms, vintage deers! Oh my these little friends really are going to have an adventure! Photos will be taken so I can't wait to share them with you at the start of next year! Next year, that always sounds so far away, where do the days go! The illustration and custom text of Oh Dear Baby was on the front and all the information in lovely whimsical text on the back in woody tones of hazel, moss and mustard. This was such fun that I plan to design invitations to launch in my Store, I can feel party time coming on!

My commission Bear is coming along well, he can see, smell, smile and hear! Today I will be filling and jointing him, such fun to see him coming to life! I promise to share photos when he is finally finished. Winston is sitting watching and feeling just a little sad, he has not yet found his special family for Christmas and is feeling a little unloved, although of course I am giving him plenty of hugs! **UPDATE 13 Dec - Winston has found his very special home so is no longer sad!**

Back to work for me, I need some of Santa's Elves to help out! I will have to settle for my two cats!! Hope you like my new Christmas background! See you back soon, Hugs, Catherine & Bear to be! x

Hello Catherine! Hello sweet Winston! I hope he finds a new home very soon... he does look a bit dismal today, poor chap... But your invitations are GORGEOUS, Catherine!! These are really sensational... so beautiful seeing them all grouped together. Invitation is a great idea for addition to your shop. I am sure they will fly out and make people happy. Wonderful work, my friend. Happy Day ((HUGS))

Hello Catherine... Honeybeary has been eyeing Winston... I had to tell her (and Bittybeary) that we just couldn't afford his "ticket" right now... we'll see what happens after Christmas... love to you and ALL the bears... xoxo Julie Marie
