Hi again,
Before I get onto your card I just wanted to say a VERY BIG THANK YOU. The postman came this afternoon and I was stunned, you are so generous and your card is just beautiful, I will never forget this kindness.
Onto todays creation now. What a delightful card today Dena. It looks as rosy as the delectable apples in the little girls basket. Please can I ask what papers you used, that red rose paper is definitely me. I did check your recipe but the paper name is missing.
Looking forward to seeing further creations tomorrow.
Hugs and thanks again Linda
