Kathie, your card is gorgeous inside and out. Love the sparkly balloons. The flowers are just beautiful. Hope all is going well on your side on the world. It is hot (in the 90's), but very humid here.

Gorgeous card, Kathie! Love the colours you've used and the sweet image and embellies... as well as the great sketch, of course ;-) Thanks for asking about my son - he is out of hospital and home with his babies which is really good, and he has reached the point of being frustrated at his immobility - which is a good thing in that it is a sign he is feeling better and bad in that, well, he's frustrated, lol. I hope your sister's health improves, and that all went well in Melbourne. Donna xx
