Quoting Winnie The Pooh

When I was young, my brother and I were taken to Sears and we were each allowed to pick out a Winnie The Pooh stuffed toy.  I loved my Pooh bear so much, and kissed his pom pom nose every day.


My enchantment with Pooh began back then, and he still makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside.  When I discovered that Verve had this Smallest Things stamp, I just HAD to have it.  The butterfly stickers are from K & Co.


I'm not sure about my brother, but I still have my Winnie The Pooh bear.  His pom pom nose is now upturned from too many kisses, and his happy smile tells me that he enjoyed every one of them!

That is such a sweet sentiment. I remember when I was young I had a winnie the pooh book that had a record with it. I think I wore it out I played it so much. Your card looks wonderful my friend.

Winnie was a wise bear. I had a Teddy like that. He's no longer with me, but funny that I still think about him now and then. That was a long time ago. This is such a pretty card, Colleen! I especially love that soft blue houndstooth. It reminds me of a baby blanket.
