Oh, Astrid, this one is superb! The little "writer" is adorable, the top hat is a special touch, and the pen and quote bring it all together. STANDING OVATION!!

What a wonderful image. I am sure he grew up to be whatever he wanted to be as he looks so determined. The background is softly beautiful. I love the sepia colours with a "pop" of pink. Everything you do is so thoughtful and expertly crafted. Take a bow.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
