Thank you, my dear! Every time I see your new drawing I think it's perfect, but every next one is even better. I don't know, how you do it, it's some kind of magic :) :hug:

Ah I'm so glad you like it. I can't wait for you to see them in person, the light tones just don't translate well in the scans.

I have always tried to out do myself... we'll see how far it goes. There must be a limit somewhere, yes? =D =D =D
