Morning Pat, fantastic card as always and I love the sentiment inside, great. Heading over to your patch in less than 3 weeks, hitting the King of Prussia mall as it's only 10 mins away but one of these trips I am coming to see you! Lets plan a crafty time together, do you think Gayle would come too?
Have a great day and I hope that storm does not hit your area.
