My blog called "Creative Smiles" because my designs are the result of covering up mistakes. My fumble fingers drop whatever they are holding - repeatedly. Hence, the giggles and smiles of creative patience all throughout my crafting process. xx

Bugaboo at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies!

Happy New Year, dear friends!
May 2019 be kind to you, as you have been so kind to me with your friendship!
Wishes for those who have had a rough 2018, that 2019 looks up, and that you feel hopeful. My biggest Hope for everyone is that Peace of Mind, Deep Contentment, and Health are yours.

Critters include mythical creatures, animal toys and everything alive (except humans and flora)!

Ack, you know how I love Bugaboo, and this is a darling set! I do have this set and a similar set with hearts and I've used all of them. So adorable! Your cards are so cute they've given me a yearning to do some Bugaboo coloring. Still have a few not yet used. Love those glittery balloons and all your designs and how you've made them all nicely coordinated so they look awesome as a group. Hugely inspiring, Donna! Why have I never played this challenge, considering how I love critters? Adding to my Feedly this minute! I'm wishing all good things for you in 2019. I dearly hope it's a good year for you. Hugs and love!
