Of course you'll have realised that computers were used for some of the lettering. But apart from that, I think you'll agree that there's 'a certain something' about handpainted and hand-drawn designs that makes them special!  

I'm sure all the artists will appreciate your comments!

Hi Judy,
Agree with you; handpainted cards have a soft, gentle, dreamy quality about them, that digital images don't always have.
Thanks for including my cards!
Hugs, barbara

Thank you all for your comments - yes, we always seem to get a lot of different interpretations of the theme! And I like Robin's comparison to a new baby!

Thank you for your comments, Janet. I think it's a good reminder that we don't necessarily need a digital design program to produce some lovely desigs.
