I am so excited about this card...I am going to make one with a dear friend of mine Kara who I haven't got to see in a really long time... and I so love her and her company... and I am also going to make one with an old friend from high school, Deena... it will be fun to get-to-gather with her!!! I so hope that they both like the card!!... this card was totally inspired by the paper...when you scroll down and see the inside you will know that without a doubt... Thank you so much for looking.... and I so love your comments!!!... Hugs, Jeannie
