Hey, Momma! This is adorable as per usual with you. Your characters are just amazing and I love the wonderfully happy Snowman!

Hope everything is fine with you and yours.

Much love sent your way!

Oh yes!!! And how I wish it would snow here! Even in my decrepitude, I would be out playing in it---fully clothed of course, with so much on that I would much resemble a tick about to pop.....
And yes, I have made a snowman as an adult, even since we moved to this house 16 years ago! ;)
Darling....as always!!!!

XXOO!!

Cheryl Lynn said...

You have no idea how happy I was to wake up to your message this morning. I'm so happy and Godly proud of you and your business! I look forward to that day for myself.

I cooked and ate, and then someone kidnapped me and fed me again, and so on...:)

Love you to the end of days!

Indigene said...

This is adorable, but I'm talking about you, so I never expect anything less! :)

Ah Sweetie, I know what you mean. Did you know we had snow here last Friday? Yep! Sure did! It melted yesterday and it's all gone now as if nothing happened at all. How are you my dearest Vanessa? Is it bitter cold up there? Sometimes I just want to fly up and sneak in on my sister for the weekend but she is always doing something on the weekend she's off, I don't want to visit an empty home. Hahah!

Peter Breese said...

So true and what a fun moment you've captured here my friend! Nice work as always.

I always revert back to my childhood when it snows, and feel just like the kids in this illustration look – happy and joyous! Nice to see a post from you!

Desiree Cassidy said...

That sound is awesome, makes me miss snow just a little :)
Love the illo!

Don't get snow in your boots though... no fun can come from that!

Bella Sinclair said...

C-r-u-n-c-h! C-r-u-n-c-h! Let me get on my snow boots and coat. Watch out now, I'm a master snowball thrower. Mwahahahaha! Oh, Vanessa, you are bringing me the white winter wonderland I miss so much. This is MAGIC, sisterfriend! Mmmmmm, I would GLADLY take some of your Yankee Doodle. How about Ding Dongs, you got any of those around? HoHo? Aah, Nessa, you know how much I love you, honey. I hope you're doing okay this month. I think of you and your family daily. Thank goodness you have superpowers!

xoxoxox!

I can hear their little feet making crunchy noises in the snow, oooh what sweet wintry fun they are having.
