Well, I'm very glad you've been to the Doctors - good girl! I hope you feel more like yourself soon. Now I love this card. I keep seeing you use these First Edition papers and they look lovely. I've been to buy them twice because of you and not liked them in the flesh. Then you make another corker with them and I want them all over again! xxx
