That's the loveliest fable I've ever read! (And the cutest snail I've ever seen.) ♥
Merry Christmas!

That is a gorgeous picture. Both the crow and snail are amazing, but the frost on the bushes is gorgeous! I love the lighted trees and the moon. Oh...and the texture on the tree branch! Just wonderful! Honestly, this pic would be an awesome cover for a children's book.

Thank you so much, hon!! I'm delighted that you noticed all those details! <333 And yes! Yay! Thank you for thinking it would be good for a children's book - that's exactly what I'm thinking too. I am going to be working toward doing some original work like this for YA and children's books in the coming year. ^.^

I LOVE THIS SO MUCH!

I knew I would, and yet I was still stunned into flaily silence by how gorgeous this is ♥ Thank you so much for turning my odd little Christmas card story into a work of art. I love the colours, the frost, the LIGHTS - wow! The snail's little eyestalks ♥ The pattern of the crow's feather is AMAZING. It sort of reminds of stained glass and is just wonderful. The expression on the crow's face is so lovely - I saw another comment that said you can tell from his face that he's a kind crow and wouldn't try to trick the snail and it's so true! You have such a wonderful talent. Thank you for sharing it with us ♥

*hugs*

I'M SO HAPPY YOU LOVE IT!! :D *bounces*

I so adored your little story - well, I've already told you that ^.^ - but I could see the pretty scene so clearly in my mind and just had to paint it! And I am very pleased that the crow's expression comes across - I did want particularly to make him look kind and happy for the snail. :D

Thank you for sharing your amazing story-telling with me and everyone in H/D fandom. <333

*hugs tight back*
