Promotional Post: Love is in the Air...

Hello everyone, just before I start, I wanted to show you why you haven't seen any posts from me in almost a week.  On Monday night I was putting an ice pack into the freezer. As I was doing so, I noticed out of the corner of my eye, that something else was sliding off of the top shelf of the freezer so instinct kicked in and I quickly reached for it.  Unfortunately, I connected my right index finger with the handle of the fridge (we have a side by side).  I just about passed out it hurt so bad.  Within an hour my finger looked like this...
Within 24 hours it looked like this...
Of course it had to be my main mouse finger.  Needless to say it has been a bit painful to use.  Thankfully, I didn't break it.  Thank goodness for small miracles.  Anyways, just another in a line of odd and annoying things that has been plaguing me since the first day of the new year.  Please Lord, don't let it be a year full of them!  Okay whining over, time to share a new adventure with you...

I have a story to share with you all today.  It is about one of the beloved characters who resides in Scribbles Land.  His name is Hedgy and for those of you who haven't met him yet, this is what he looks like...

Adorable right?!  Well, as it happens, one day Hedgie was out for a stroll and from a distance he spotted someone who sent his heart all aflutter...

He was so taken with this individual that he had to backtrack a bit and hide around the back of a willow tree so that he could watch her for a few moments without being too obvious...

Now of course he didn't want to appear like he was a stalker.  That is not Hedgie at all, but he did watch her long enough to find out what Garden District she was headed to.  Armed with that knowledge, Hedgie headed home to write her a letter.  He decided that he would use his fountain pen for most of the letter as he wanted to appear very grown up...

Then he added a nice little drawing of a rose...

using his pencil....

However, he wanted to add a bit of colour as well; so, he got out his crayons and used them too...


Hedgie lumbered down and finished writing a beautiful letter telling his crush all about himself and when he was done he added a bunch of hearts that he managed to cut out all on his own which was quite a feat for our little friend...

For the next few days, Hedgie spent hours sitting at the window looking for the postman to arrive...

Soon after, Hedgie received a letter back in the mail.  Apparently he hadn't been all that stealthy that first day and the object of his affections saw him peeking around the willow tree.  It seems that she too was taken with our little friend and wanted to get to know him better as well.  So, she agreed to meet up with Hedgie at the local watering hole.

Well, Hedgie was just so excited and he wanted this first meeting to go well; so, he brought her some pretty wildflowers...

Hedgie's crush was so thrilled that she took a snapshot of Hedgie with the flowers, so that she could put it in her scrapbook later...

That initial meeting went so well that they decided to see each other again the following week.  During the time leading up to their next date they chatted on the phone and got to know each other even better.

For their next date, Hedgie brought her a box of chocolates in the shape of a heart...

Our boy was definitely smitten and thankfully it seemed, so was she!  As time went by and they grew closer, it was apparent that this was a love that could last.  Hedgie was certainly in love and it showed.  He was ready to give his heart to someone else...

Hedgie finally had a sweetheart to call his own...

It turns out that love at first sight really does happen and for this particular couple it was a love, forever meant to be...

Will we ever get a glimpse of Hedgie's true love?  Well, only time will tell...


Clicking on any of the images should bring you to their location in the Scribbles Designs store.

So many digitals, so many possibilities!

Sandy has recently been very busy adding a wide variety of images to the store.  Have you checked out the freebie section lately (look for FREE in the labels section)?  Along with the three free images above, you'll find 96 more of them!  Yes, you read that correctly--there are 99 freebies currently in the store and given that today (Friday) is the day that my fellow teammie Sam hosts her own special post where she shares a free image with you all, there should now be 100 of them!  That is incredibly generous of Sandy; so, please be sure to leave her some love if you grab any of those freebies.  Don't forget that you can find one of them up for grabs over in our current challenge which we'd love for you to enter, if you haven't already. You still have the rest of today and most of tomorrow to enter our current Winter Wonderland challenge.  You can find out all the details you need for participating and for grabbing the special freebie, by clicking HERE.  Oh and don't forget to stop by on Sunday, when it is time to find out the theme of our new challenge. 

There is lots going on over at the Scribbles Designs Challenge blog so if you are not yet a follower, now is the perfect time to become one.  
 
Well guys, that is it for today. Wishing you all a wonderful Valentine's Day coming up tomorrow unless you live in New Zealand like our team member Suze, or another country on the other side of the world, in which case it is already February 14th.  Wherever you are in the world, I hope that you get to cuddle up to someone very special in your life, today and every day!

Until next time!

Lisa, I know how you feel. This new year has not been kind to either of us. My fingers hurt just looking at those photos. I can well imagine your pain. It will take rest and patience for it to heal. My thoughts of care come your way. I red this post on the Scribbles blog. It made me smile. I enjoyed it so much. Thank you. Edwina Brown
