Great card Kathy. Hope you are feeling a bit better now. Were your ears burning last Sunday afternoon? I met Lauren (Hatwell) for the first time at the PaperArtsy workshop with Seth Apter and we reminisced a bit about those very early days of blogging. Can't believe it was soooo long ago.
Enjoy the weekend. xxx
