I received this set of 8 art cards from a giveaway on Milly's lovely Drawings from Nature blog.
The cards can be used as postcards or kept and framed as prints. I would love to frame mine, but unfortunately it is impossible to find frames around here that are the right size (6x8 inches). The cards feature precise, detailed drawings and paintings of small objects from nature: leaves, feathers, seeds, shells, and a dragonfly. They come in a sturdy paper pouch that is illustrated with drawings just as nice as those on the cards themselves. These cards would make an excellent gift for any nature-lover that you know.
As a personal touch, Milly included a handmade gift tag with my cards:
Milly, also known as Eileen Postlethwaite, is based in England's Lake District, where she creates her art and collects the items that she draws from nature. Check out her blog and website.
