    Ginger I am not saying your other style isn't wonderful! But this style is absolutely awesome! I just love this!

    Kathleen Rietz said...

    I agree with Sherry....this style is so refreshing Ginger! Makes me think of the original Winnie The Pooh illos by A. A. Milne. Looks like traditional pen & ink and watercolor....very pretty.
