You're Not Alone

As promised! Another Toby Tumble card :-)
Once again, you can find Toby digi here at Cuddly Buddly . (and be careful how you spell that, its, Cuddly B-U-D-D-L-Y , not cuddly buddy. That's like an online dating service. lol)
I am using a variety of paper here, mostly K&Co. and have colored the digi with prismacolors.
(I know, shocker.)

You know what I love about these toby stamps?
I think it's that  comforting quality about them. I'm always looking for something sweet that could be used for an encouragement card or sympathy card that's not simply a bouquet of flowers, you know what I mean?
You want something that's not TOO cheerful cos that just looks like "I'm happy and you're not" but you don't want doom and gloom images either, right?
There ya go.

and as always, a close up:

I would like to enter this in :

The Pixie Cottage: sketch
Crafty Emma: all creatures great and small
One Stop Craft: card for a child

Take Care!

I totally know what you're saying and these sweet images are perfect for that. Kind of serene and sweet but not so cute and cheerful if that's not the mood you are going for! Gorgeous Dorcas, I love it!

Dorcas, this date, 10th of January, is very heart breaking day for me, year after year. When I came to visit your blog this morning, it was so touching, I couldn't comment at all, just felt a tiny bit better.

"You want something that's not TOO ... right?"
That part made me feel loads better <3
