If you have recently found yourself thinking, "Gee, I sure wish I had a dragon flying across my desktop," this is the post for you. I was inspired by Ingvard the Terrible, a fierce and talented artist (who kindly gave me the skinny on making wallpaper). Visit his blog, follow him on twitter, and check him out on facebook because he is the coolest! This is also a new one for me because I plunked this painting right on top of a photo I snapped of blue summer sky and happy clouds. You can download this wallpaper over at my flickr set. Have a groovy day while you're at it!

I never really know what you are supposed to write when you get this kind of reply card...
The "M _____________" part mostly made sense, but I never know what to do with "__________ of _________ ." That's a toughie. You can see where I added an ( 's ) later on the Crittenden so that "party of four" would work. I hope they don't notice...
Congratulations, Shannon and Ryan!
