Greetings THL Keran,
What a wonderfully novel idea! I love it! Authenticity is preserved, artwork
is enhanced and personalized for the recipient, and both artists are fully
recognized for their work!
...But I was wondering if you could contact me off list regarding an
entirely different matter?
Lady Rowan L' Crotha
