Opal and New Friends

It's that time of year for the flu bug to make its way around and this time it appears I'm not going to escape it.  Not being able to sleep, I sat up all night working on this to help focus on something other than how rotten I felt.

And as I often do, I misjudged size and placement of the overall sketch running into the spiral with the bottom corner of the buggy..........ooops     When I started this, I started with Violet working my way down to the right and back up to the left until I finished Toffy.  Worked the cart around them.

The little bears (except "Violet") were Christmas gifts from my husband.  He knows I like these little miniature bears and I ended up with six more friends for Opal.

While visiting my mom in West Virginia,  I took notice of a miniature shopping cart or buggy sitting on her dresser.  I was able to purchase it through Amazon and bought that with the intent of holding other things.  However, when it came in, the bears just seemed to call out they wanted to go for a ride.........lol.

And each bear has a name.  The names just seemed to pop in my head without much thought.  Am I silly?  Yeah, but that's OK.  :-)
