Hummingbird Fuchsia Flower is one of my newest Images, and perfect for all of those Springtime cards. :) 

Helen - Admin Team/DT

Image: Cubby Bear Valentine


Cubby Bear Valentine is a newer Image, this bear just isn't for Valentines Day, but for any time you need a card for a Thinking of You, or Birthday. The inspiration in creating this image came from my collection of Boyds Bears.  :)


Becca DT

If you are in this crazy weather pattern right now, expecting snow and ice,  I know we could all use a Springtime happy dance!  :)
