OK, Pom, I just wished my friends and family "love and strength for all the length of their time on earth." (Moody Blues lyrics.)
(Crossed fingers that saying it "out loud" doesn't jinx the wish!)
Your elegant creation is marvelous, Pom. The details, the colors, the composition --- all super-fine!! VERY well done, my friend! #10136190

Laura E. Swan 5/15/2012 9:56:49 AM

Hi Steve, Neal, John, Wm, Terry, Julianne, Mare, Emile, Jo Ann and Rey! :)

Thank you for coming to my "Make a Wish Little One" image. :)))

Well, my wish is that you will get your wishes! So whatever they are, I hope they come true for each person here.

They say that dreams are just plans in the making and we can't have anything happen if we don't dream and wish and plan and ask (pray!) and then, there you have it!

Actually I did have a little wish and it came true so I will tell you. I wished that I could have this image blown up and put on Canvas for my home. It will arrive by Friday. Right to my door! HA! 20x30! YES! (I got it on sale and can't be more tickled about it!)

Have wonderful days you guys!

Love to all!
-Laura :D #10138139
