Cote de Texas


Happy early birthday to Joni of Cote de Texas. A few weeks ago I posted a birthday illustration for Anna of Absolutely Beautiful Things created by the wonderful Patricia van Essche. Joni left a note that her birthday was on the 20th of November and Patricia read the comment. A few days later Patricia emailed me to say that she had an idea and wanted to commemorate Joni's birthday in a special way. Here is the fantastic result of Patrica's amazing talent (she never ceases to surprise me). Happy early birthday Joni!

A coveted gift from the exponentially talented PVE!!! As a fellow Texan, I love the card, because of course, I love Texas and I also love France. So I am living vicariously through Joni. What a thoughtful thing to do, PVE.
Ronda and Joni: how great that you got to meet.
