Jeannie said...

Hi there! I adore this card and the sentiment! I get a lot of things from Pink Petticoat as well, but I can't seem to find where this one is. You noted that it was part of the Perfect Papers set, but I'm just not seeing it. If you could let me know, I'd appreciate it. Thanks!

Peace & Luv,

Kat said...

Gorgeous card Vicky. Love that image, really pretty colours, DP and embellishments.

Great pic of your children. Isn't it funny how they suddenly grow up before you know what's happened.
