Two birth days

 Thought you might like to see my baby gift for Gruffydd Tomos. These two are my versions of Madame Chantilly's CUTE bears. After finishing Blue Bear I thought I must make something for Gruffydd's 4 year old brother too so Brown Rabbit appeared. Simple toys that can take a lot of punishment and I hope will be loved.

My brother in law also had a birthday recently. He loves his cycling and I found this perfect letterpress card for him at Little Red Press on Folksy. I love the look of letterpress but a machine is a BIG investment - and, yes, I know, I'm already spending way too much on papercrafting! So I'll content myself with buying beautiful letterpressing like this - I've already seen the perfect card for my son who has just turned into a biker!
As usual I was rather late putting my gift together as it had to be posted, but Hannah at Little Red Press did me proud and I recieved my card the next day!!  And not only that I found she had included this lovely bookmark too. So I was really pleased with my gift and hope the cyclist was too.


  1. How cute are those bear and rabbit!!!! And I am sure your brother will be very happy with this beautiful card.

  2. Ann, I absolutely LOVE your Blue Bear and Brown Cat. They remind me very much of some of the childhood toys that my sisters and I played with. Between us we had a very large family of little Bears, Cats and Mice. You should see my post from about a year ago.

  3. Thank you Ann. Had lots of these books as a child but not seen this one before. Nice card too!

    Love Pete

  4. Thank you so much for mentioning my card, Ann and photographing it on a Ladybird book too - they always make me so nostalgic! Absolutely love your bear and rabbit,btw - what lucky little boys!

  5. I just love these sweet little bears! Gorgeous!


Thank you so much for visiting my blog and taking the time to comment - its hugely appreciated. Ann :o)
