How Cute is the Foster Family?

REV 2 new style APRIL WITH DOGGIE 6b

I can not thank Sondra from Sondra's Ink enough for drawing this precious holiday setting of our family. It will be perfect for the letterpress cards I am sending out to all my friends and family.

Sondra specializes in more lifelike drawings like these, but I really wanted ours to be more animated. She had no problem creating exactly what I wanted.

Please pay Sondra's blog a visit for some great designs!
