Jules said...

Hi Coops

A gorgeous baby card. Great faux stitching .. .. it matches the embossing on your background circle perfectly.

I was pleased to read your dentist news with regards the fillings. I am sure you will get on much better having your extractions at the hospital. I am assuming you will be asleep and know nothing about it.

I can't believe you went into your son's room when you clearly knew that no parents were allowed!!! LOL!!!

Love Jules xx
