For Troy and Lou


I made this large poster-card for my middle son Troy and my daughter-in-law Lou who live in NH - such a long way from WI. They both love and collect Disney so when I saw Sassy Cheryl's image "Boy and Pull Toy" I thought of them right away. I love this image - the funny sticking up in front hair looks just like Troy's did when he was a little boy and the mouse of course made it a given that I would have to have this image for my own. Troy is now grown and has children of his own - and grandchildren! I am soon to have my third great-grandchild - doesn't seem possible to me! But the memory of the little boy he was makes me smile.

I combined this image with Mo Manning's "Tree Decorated" to create a scene for this Christmas poster-card. The photos don't show the glitter on the tree - I guess it was too dark when I took the photos. Too many late nights working to finish my cards and still so many yet to make! I hope they like this one when it arrives at their house.

You can see Cheryl's image at and Mo's are to be found at So many wonderful images to chose from!

Thanks for stopping by today! Wishing you good memories of your own!
