Hi, Pinky.Last(?) but not least! I just needed to have a cuppa! (Actually, I'm one of the few Italian people who don't like coffee but tea!) About the card, it's such a sweetness and ,again, I like the sketch! This week I have to make a card for a friend of mine who likes tea, I haven't any stamps like House Mouse but I'll arrange something with papers and buttons with cups and teapots, I'll show you. Hugs. Miria
P.S. Thank you for congrats, I didn't expect that spotlight
