Kathie this is a gorgeous card, love the orchid and your beautiful colours and colouring. Life sounds busy with you in the summer sun at the beach house and with your boys growing up fast. Wishing your son well at university, I'm sure he'll take it all in his stride and leave his Mum at home to do all the worrying! Jx
