My card from Liz!

My card arrived from Liz some time ago, I have been so distracted with family issues I haven't posted it until now although it brought me much joy! I don't know how she manages, in a few perfectly placed strokes, to convey such beautiful buildings. Ahhh, I am so glad to study the card so I can try and apply Liz's techniques during my next plein air session! If the building weren't enough on the other side of the card were wonderful friends of BB's, Paddo, Peter-Lewis,Palmer-Portland,Hamish-Edinburgh,Llyr-Wales. Looks like the many friends he has met on his many vacations with Liz. Oh I wish I had the life of this bear! Thanks so much Liz, I love my card, and Jenn does too!

That is really a designed object card, I admire Liz for her ability to give her cards this illustrated look.

Liz, your sketches are ALWAYS a pleasure to see! You have such interesting corners and details on your cards...it is like taking a little tour around your sketches, discovering everything that's hidden.

Each of Liz’s fully-loaded cards is a tiny perfect architectural sketching tutorial. Can’t wait for the book!

I always like the stamps on Liz's cards as well!

What a surprise and delight to see a host of Borromini's friends on the back

I'm also trying to imagine Liz sketching in a suit.

Gorgeous loose but elegant sketches of buildings that instantly transport one to the place. What fun to see BB's friends, so full of character and joy.
