Privileged a Mo Manning Original

The doorbell chimed to the tune of the floral dance and I did my usual cringe that I do every time it chimes, Chris programmed it when we first got it and to be honest he was thrilled to bits with the result, I however try to let it finish before I open the door but as I have the builders in they had already laughed their socks off at the sound coming out of it.

I opened the door to a delivery driver asking for Jak Heath As the parcel had to be signed for. I advised that I was Jak to which he looked me up and down obviously expecting Jak to be of the male variety.

I saw Mo's name on the box and immediately became very excited to the amusement of the builders. I took my scissors and carefully opened up the box, I didn't know what was inside but I thought I had better open it carefully.

For those of you that don't yet know of Mo Manning she is a very talented artist friend who never ceases to amaze me, she writes and illustrates children's books, creates the most amazing image stamps for the crafting world both in Rubber and as Digital images.

 

The contents of the box just left me speechless, something that is a rarity for me. This is something that I totally fell in love with when Mo created it.

Isn't she gorgeous, the concentration in her face, so very studious for such a dainty soul

 

And the little robin peeping out from behind her.

 

The back view.

 

I will truly treasure this.

Thank you Mo x

WOUW this is so gorgeous, but comming from Mo, I wouldn´t expect anything else, as I totally agree, she´s one of the best artist making stamps too, and her drawings are always sooo perfect and wonderful and also often very numerous too. I love her work, and this is definitely spectacular, so no wonder, it´ll be treasured. Lucky lady, but you soooo deserve it too, that´s for sure, so please enjoy it hun.
