Art Creations and TGIF Challenges




This week's Art Creations challenge is to use Hermine's precious wee bear...one that she'd made herself years ago. This week's TGIF challenge is "Secret Gardens." So here's Hermine's bear, in my secret garden at our summer place in Nova Scotia! I've been away from home for several weeks now, visiting my grandchildren in Quebec, and I'm leaving to drive back home to Nova Scotia...and to my spring gardens...tomorrow!

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit today. I love it when you do!

Deborah, this is so adorable for both the challenges. I love the script you used for your text. Outstanding. And the park bench is a delightful place for the bear.

Oh, I wish I could hitch a ride on your coattail as you go back to Nova Scotia, one of the places I do hope to get back to someday. We did a fabulous 3 week flyfishing trip there for our 40th anniversary in 1997.
