      All the drawings are beautiful, but I'd like that rose embroidered on something I can put on my wall. "Love, desire, passion, hope, and forever" are all very good characteristics.

      What woman does not love flowers? Yes, that last one is spectacular, but for some reason I am drawn to that abstract, so-to-speak, of the dandelion. When it comes to flowers, God's creation is so awesome, that if there were no flowers at all, but the dandelion, we would all be in awe of it!

      Up and more and sharing

      God bless you and yours,

      Faith Reaper
