As ever, my post was delayed until today at lunchtime and we've been in the kitchen covered in emulsion paint all day, so this is my first chance to sneak away and show you the wonderful card that Joanna sent me. Even the envelope was fantastic!
Certainly rewards a close examination of all the details
The card itself was a masterful evocation of the origins of New York and had a very tactile finish.
Joanna has kindly revealed the details of the origins of the city's name
so now you know the handsome fellow above is James, Duke of York.
I absolutely love everything about this card - the soft feel, simplicity of design, the faded 'Old Glory' in the background. I'm a very lucky girl - thank you so much Joanna!
