Hi Coops

...... and you are amazing too!!!

I think it is the time of year that makes us reflective - at least these people are in your heart and your memories .. .. even if they can't be in your life. I am sure that some of them are "watching on" and are very proud of you.

Your card tonight is beautiful. Love your image and your papers very much. Gorgeous !!!

Hope you have a good week.
