One of my favourite art bloggers is Margaret Storer-Roche ( and she kindly offers her blog visitors from time to time the chance to win a piece of her artwork. Every Monday she creates a cactus painting and I have WON one in her last draw. Lucky, lucky me.
It was as if by magic, it arrived all the way from Arizona to my home in East Anglia England on the very day our mutual friend Anita ( came for the weekend from her lovely Fenland home near Cambridge.
I didn't only get the cactus postcard but a bevy of other delights from a covering card with a beautiful organic pen and wash drawing, a delightful organic cactus shapes mandella (or zentangle - not sure which to call it) her business card and a delightful little pen drawing of a crossed zip opening.

So let us unzip Margaret's work

Thank you so very very much Margaret and for the lovely words on the various artworks you sent me. I am honoured to have these in my artroom - with the cactus card on display alongside a green slipper postcard Anita gave me some while back.
