Happy New Year from Jennie!

I really like this Rabbit New Year card from Jennie. I especially like the FORTRAN Statement paper she used on the address side for I am quite the geek... From the days when each character of every FORTRAN line had to be in a specific column.

Received from Karen Champlin, USA--Creative Expressions and Cozy Spaces

Art Nation's Wonder Woman has done it again. Her body of work speaks, is unique and archaic at the same time. Great photo of the boy and the dog. Life itself can get a little too surreal sometimes, but Karen's work offers calm. I like that. Gracias,… Continue
