I do love what you have done here. The really interesting thing to me though, is that this morning on my dictionary.com the phrase-word was "land of nod" That was once. Then I went to Wrightstuff's blog and she referred to her mother's stories taking her to the "land of nod" and now it is your turn with y our main border being from "land of nod." Very odd, this "nod" thing is indeed!

I'm such a fan of your style of art, Astrid. Everything you do appeals to me! Thanks for joining our challenge this week. This is such a nice addition to our growing lineup of stellar black birds!

Wonderful piece of art!! My thought fly to Alice in Wonderland, when I look at your work. In Poland we have very similar sentence, which is: "better a sparrow in a hand, than a pigeon on the roof" :)

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!
