'Willow Catching Leaves'

I just want to say THANK YOU for all the get well emails, messages, texts etc I have received over the last week you are the best ....who needs family when they have you lot!! xxxxx
I will say I am on the mend, not totally right but feeling much better. The antibiotics seemed to have done there job at getting rid of my kidney infection, thankfully....I have truly never known pain like it, I would rather be in labour for 26 hours like I was with our Danni than go through that again!!

Anyhoos enough of that...I am here to show you a card I made for 
'Try Stampin' On Tuesdays' I was really shocked when I received an email asking to be their GDT...me say no...never! Thank you so much for asking me xx
