Happy Birthday Jessica's Mom! You certainly have a sweet daughter. I hope that you have a wonderful day. Hi Jessica. OMWord....I can not believe everyone's blogs tonight. All of the cards are just too adorable! I have to say thank you for using cork on your card. I have two sheets of it laying in my stash and I haven't really know how I wanted to use it. Yours is absolutely adorable! I love how you have colored her for one and then to use the cork as part of your flowers and border. OMWord! I just love how it brought everything together and made this such a sweet card. Thanks for all your hard work. I just love these hops! Have a great day! Hugs, Lisa G
