Such pretty papers Mandy, glad to see you got to play with them as soon as they arrived, I love your bird image, stamped in those colors, and the buttons in the red and green look great with the papers, kind of gives a vintage look to it all. You've done a marvelous job using my sketch.

Hi Mandy, I sent the second comment as I got you mixed with Viv who is below you in the Mr Linky box. I saw her blog and I left a comment on your card, I must have had both windows opened next to each other. So sorry! At least I was commenting on the right card and just got your name mixed up. Feel really bad now! Shame on me!
