As its nearly Christmas I thought it be good to blog our new and trendy Artist Partners Christmas Card - its fun and festive and its a totally unique style by our talented artist Dawn Austin, who has been customising and making her own dolls, dressing them and setting them all in rather kitsch Diorama's. This year we used her Festive image for our Artist Partners Christmas Card - enjoy more of her work here: Dawn Austin
