This is gorgeous Lesley - will be looking at the Lili of the Valley stuff at the NEC they sold out of the stamps I wanted at Harrogate so fingers crossed they'll have plenty left. I love Flower Soft too it always gives a lovely texture to cards. Just hope I can shake this rotten dizzinss off so that I can enjoy Birmingham! Have fun with the rest of your goodies.

Love Lynda xxx
