    I love how you make cards so special!!!! You do amazing detail work:) As always love watching your work.

    BTW…I went to Ikea for the first time since it open on your advice. I was there noon to nine at night and still did not look at all they had to offer. I did a whole room make over for my daughter. Things will be here Sunday noon to four.
    DH and I will be busy assembling all the parts. Thanks so much, you are right they have great stuff.
