Aww Nic :) It doesnt hurt to be a bit soppy at times, and it helps sometimes to just release it a little and get it off your chest too.

Now I love your card. I actually have this image sat on my desk to colour in and I am a little nervous about it tbh! This looks brilliant and I like her toxic glow! lol.
