Letters from Home

Who doesn't love getting mail?
(Well, personal letters, anyway. I guess none of us like getting bills.)


This equestrian and his dog seem to be enjoying what they received in their mailbox today!

While the sketch is a standard size card, I chose to tweak the sketch a bit, making my card a 5 1/2" square card.
