I've got another; It's actually in the 'signature' of my mail: 'The manner of one's art is the banner of one's heart' Timothy White
Right now the banner of my heart reads 'Thank you so much for sharing your gifts'

Hi Kim, it's very nice to meet you - via a friend Tracey - I don't have photoshop (but would love to)....I don't think I could use your textures would I?

your photography reminds me of a good friend: Amy - from 'pretty life photography'....
