My Beautiful Surprise

My Beautiful Surprise

Hi everyone, I hope that you're all warm and well. It's been so cold here on the 
north east coast but I've been lovely and toasty since we had our new combi boiler 
installed, usually at this time of year I'm sat cuddling the fire and wrapped in in 
lots of layers, I can't believe the difference having the new boiler makes to how warm 
the house's almost like the Bahamas lol.

As some of you who know me will already know it was my Birthday on 
New Years Eve and as is usual every year I wait until all the festivities are all over with 
and then I have a quiet night out with my Hubby. Well this year was no exception, 
only unbeknown to me something rather special was winging it's way across 
the pond. A few days after my Birthday a package arrived, I opened it and was 
completely blown away by what was inside, but before I tell you what I found inside.....

After having been a huge fan of Mitzi Sato-Wiuff's breathtaking artwork for sometime and being 
asked to join her Aurora Wings Design Team, I wrote to Mitzi a little while later 
 to ask her if she would design an image for my Daughters Leanne's Birthday, 
she would have been 25 last June and we all miss her so much more than words can say.
To cut a long story short Mitzi created the most mesmerizingly 
beautiful image "Leanne's Angel"  and I was completely blown away by her....

Well back to my package, can you imagine just how speechless I was to find that   
Mitzi had sent me the original artwork that she created for 
Leanne's Angel, I really don't think that there are any words that begin to describe 
just how beautiful she is in reality. I was hoping to have her framed by now but I still haven't 
found  just the right frame and mount as yet to show off my breathtaking artwork from Mitzi.

So without further ado here she is......

Isn't she just truly stunning.

Thank you so much for my beautiful surprise gift Mitzi, I will treasure her always,
as too I will our friendship

Hi everyone, It's time for our very first challenge of the year from 
 Aurora Wings Challenge where the theme this time is "Pro/Ante Valentine" 
I'm ever the romantic so for my Aurora Wings DT Card I opted for 
Pro Valenetine and here it is...
