Inspire Me Thursday - Polka Dots



I just LOVE Polka dots... especially on little girls, so cute! Which of course made me think of my Spring Time Mouse. It's not a brand new illustration and I know I posted it before, but she is so cute in her polka dot rain jacket that I had to submit her for IMT's fun theme. =)
Have a wonderful weekend everyone... and if you haven't yet, please take a moment to post a name for my new, little piggy character (see yesterdays post below). Alyssa and I  were thinking something "flower inspired" for her, but if another name jumps to mind, toss it out there. Thanks!

There is just something about polka dots that is joyous....as is this illustration of a mouse in her rain gear!

You asked about beeswax and why I use it...I love the warm glow that it gives a piece. Thanks for your wonderful comments.
