Hi Lorraine

Great cards hun but I find it hard to chose a favourite. I looked at the site for a while and came up with the Hammock bear.

agapanthus said...

Fab cards in lovely colours! Thanks for the chance to win one of your lovely stamps. The bear in the hammock has to be a winner - he would have to budge over a bit to let me in though - snoozing in a hammock in the sun would be my idea of bliss! Best wishes Karen x

Lynne in NI said...

Fab cards Lorraine, can't wait for it to be warm enough to get my hammock out! Love all those little Gruffies, but bedtime story is definately my favourite!

Hi Lorraine, your creations are devine as usual. I particularly admire how beautifully you colour the detailed images. I've linked up my card, and after browsing in the shop (again!) I still love Gruffie with the wagon, way cute!!

Julye said...

I was sure I'd already done this, I know I had fun looking at all the stamps on the simon says site so who knows where I left my comment, no doubt there's someone out there reading it very puzzled indeed. My favs oh it's so not a short list but it would have to be a coin flip between tubby bears in the bath as this reminds me of when we were little and all went in the bath together and digging up dirt, my son gardening and hamock hibernation, my hubby in summer. can you do a 3 way coin toss. There are so many more of the images I can relate to people I know and love and now have so many more stamps on my wish list, I think I need to win the lottery or rob a bank either is about as likly to happen, so I'll just have to keep saving my pennies. Thanks for sharing Julye

Linda said...

WOW these are such fabulous all the extra little details that made it very special!!

I have posted my card for the challenge at Simon Says.

Sandra said...

Hi Lorraine,
Really gorgeous Cards! I love the Bear with the sunflowers best, It's just to cute how lazy he's enjoying the day.
Hugs, Sandra

Curt in Indy said...

You do such an AWESOME job with these images. Both of the cards are so wonderful! Your coloring is beautiful and the creative embellishments on the second are just stellar! I love that hammock bear! Best, Curt

Christine said...

Hi Lorraine def..wowzer creations brill colouring, my chioce if I HAD to choose ONLY one but want them all..(not enough room for them all) so would settle for Gruffie The washing Line..seems to fit my profile..ALWAYS washing..

Hugs Christine xx

Helen said... do you choose just one!!??
But if I had to...I love the one with the bear stuffing his face with
Helen x

Sam said...

Ah bless. Both cards are soooooo gorgeous - don't make me choose please!

Cathy Spicer said...

I'm a House Mouse lover and my heart was quickly stolen by the Hopper and Gruffie cousins as well. The Gruffie stamp highest on my wish list is Penalty Box. I think it's so cute and would be GREAT for an I'm sorry card. It's like, "I'm sorry, can I come out of the box now?" LOL, just cracks me up.

Unknown said...

I still really like the piano one!

Unknown said...

Both of your cards are t6otally adorable - I owuld love either of these images ... but the gruffle in the hammock with the sunflowers is justout of this world and your card with him is totally fabulous!!
Pauline x

Sarah said...

I am so jealous that you have those fab stamps, after seeing the Gruffie in the hammock card on your blog I know I need that stamp, he is gorgeous and would make a great card for my dad!!!

Esme said...

Hmm, I initially loved the piano bear, but having seen your cards here, I reckon I'd have to choose Hammock Hibernation instead!! Perfect for lazy summer days!!

Esme xx

Max said...

Blimey Lorraine - it's impossible to choose just one 'cos they're all so cute and very very desirable.
The Gruffies Melon Picnic is sweet though and would be great with Summer approaching - hopefully!
Have entered Simon Says Challenge and am already a follower of bothSimon Says and you.
Thanks for the chance to win.


Daisychain said...

I like them both, but, I love the expression on the face of the bear-ied one.

Hugs Christine x

Mary Lou said...

Lorraine your cards are dynamite!! very cute!!! I really really like hammock hibernation gruffie :)
Blessings of thanks

pinky said...

Think I need that paperwork one, my poor hubby is a primary school teacher and seem to be swamped in it all the time lol. Hugs

Lisa said...

I love the truffle eating one! That could be me :D

Samantha Ball said...

All your cards are fantastic! I wish I was that bear snoozing in the hammock.

Thanks for the inspiration.

Beckie said...

Hi Lols. I still like the one eating cake so I have to stick with that choice. Thank you again for the chance to win such fab candy. xx

Jill said...

aww Lols I love the gruffles image with the sunflowers, and wow your colouring is amazing hugs Jill xx

Justine said...

Outstanding Lorraine, you really do bring these fun images to life. Great coloring. I would love ANY of them but I am thinking that little guy in the hammock was super fun to color? Ok the sunflowers also remind me of Tuscany!!

Lori said...

Ooooh can't pick just one!!! I LOVE all these stamps : ) Even if you chose one blindfolded it would be awesome - lol! Your cards are fabulous!!! I thoroughly enjoy visiting your blog...
Love and hugs ~ Lori

AndreaM said...

Hi Lorraine,
thank you for offering such a wonderful candy. I like both cards - the second card a little bit more :-)
as I like the Gruffie sitting in the papers.
Hugs, AndreaM

Maarit at Violets Corner said...

Love the cards you have made Lorraine! They fab!

I love the caffeine crash Gruffie, hubby works with computers and a lot of coffee mugs at his table, hehe.


Denimo said...

Hi Lorraine! Pick a Gruffie huh! Soooo hard, but I'm going with the Bear-ied in Paperwork. I almost bought that at HL one day, but set it back on the shelf. My first instinct was better! :)

Kat said...

I love that card you've made with the Gruffie in the hammock. He is so cute. I have a few House Mouse stamps but only one or two Gruffies. I'd probably like any of the Gruffies images but I'd certainly like the one in the hammock.

Hi Lorraine, both your cards are gorgeous, I just purchased the hammock stamp and the motorbike one (being chased by bees) from Simonsaysstamp ! but I would love the diggin up dirt stamp, my DH is a gardener, so that would make a fab card for him !
