Kathie, Your card is gorgeous. Love your coloring and your beautiful flower. We had rain the other night with lightening and thunder which luckily doesn't phase my cats. Been keeping busy because I need to. Today was an expensive day, I had my hair highlighted then I had to replace my tires and bought flowers for the outside. Thanks for checking in with me; I greatly appreciate it.
