Hiya Coop's :)

Firstly... I'm not usually into Royal weddings and suchlike, but I really like Will's and Harry so I sat through everything. It was perfect... I even had a little sniffle, but don't tell anyone ;)
Diana would have been proud.

Secondly... What a stunner of a card! It's absolutely gorgeous :) Fab colouring and brilliantly put together!
I've just been looking through your cards, they're ALL wonderful!!! I've missed a fair bit since I went MIA, eh?!

Hugs, Meesh. xx
