Something very different :o)

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog. A special welcome also to my new followers.
Today I am going to show you a different project from my usual style, it's a hand-painted card which I made for my new grand daughter. It will be sent to her with a little present in the next couple of days. It does actually look a lot better in reality than the photo.

This is absolutely beautiful, Astrid... I can't imagine a better welcoming gift than a beautiful hand-created work of art which will become a family heirloom. It may not be your usual style, but it is exquisite - the quality of the glowing sunlight is extraordinarily lovely.

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!
