A cute little card brightened my day!

My friend Bess sent me a card yesterday. Leave it to Bess to have a fun stamp on the envelope too.  Much to my surprise, I opened it up to find one of my old paintings on the front of the card. Which made me smile! (I think this is actually the very first sunflower I ever […]
