I had my cousins to Sunday lunch yesterday and  had a really fun day One of my cousin's lives in Inverness so it was great to catch up I only see him a couple of times a year.

Beautiful card Carole! A wonderfully designed card and box. I love the heart stamp and the border die looks lovely. I'm not surprised that you're getting lots of orders for these as they are not just a card but a fabulous keepsake. I'm positive that the couple will love this.
I'm glad you had a great time with your cousins. Have a good week. Debra x
