Creative Tuesdays - Short and Tall

"One more tall tale, and you might be as tall as me," cried Penny....
The short and tall of it was, despite their height differences, they were the very best of friends -

This week's theme over at Creative Tuesday's is Short and Tall.
Come join the fun, over here at Mr. Toast's blog!


I will see you there!

What a gorgeous picture, so sweet. A whole story as well summed up in a few words. Wonderful!

A visual feast. I love, how over time, I am picking up on little recurring elements you add to your pieces: heart carved on trees, happy lady bugs, butterflies. The books and their titles are awesome and plays so perfectly into the theme, along with Penny on tippy-toes. I continue to adore the colors you use for spring.

Love your characters Heather, they live!

I rather like the idea of having a wee mousey friend - especially one that likes reading books as much as I do.

Probably just as well that they don't have a Kindle!
