Diane Louise J said...

You've made such a gorgeous card for the Forever Friends "Monthly" challenge - the only problem is you've entered it into the Forever Friends "Fortnightly" challenge (the theme of which is Christmas), would you mind re-entering your card again into the "Monthly" challenge which is just a bit further down the Forever Friends posting lists, it would be such a shame if you didnt as its such a cute card. Thanks. Diane (DT member, Forever Friends) xx
