Carol from At My Painting Room held a giveaway recently, and I won a print from an original painting of hers! She was kind enough to wait until after we moved before she mailed me the beautiful print I chose. It came prettily wrapped in white tissue paper with a darling blue polka dot ribbon, tied in a bow. This gorgeous note card was included. Look at that vibrant bluebird! He's sitting on a bush that's loaded with blue flowers. Folks, let me tell you, I plan to frame this note card and proudly display it in my home; it's way too nice to toss away!
Here's the print I chose--Red Hollyhocks. The print image is centered on 8" x 10" archival fine art paper, with a white border, and Carol packaged it with such care. I wish that you could see it up close; it's quite unique. She's one talented artist, and of course, it's signed. I plan to frame it and hang it in a special spot. I'll take a photo of the finished picture once it's hung. I love the red against the blue background.
Quite unexpectedly, Carol also enclosed these additional note cards, each one more delightful than the next. I will use them, but it'll have to be for a special recipient. They're so pretty.
Carol has an etsy shop called Carol's Painting Room. Take a moment and check out her available treasures.
