Comment: Thank you for the cheery HM PC! I do have a project on a back burner that can def. use the bird stamps! Magnolia's are just coming out here now and bushes ate looking more green than brown... We may have survived another winter! lol Go well...
Response: Yay! I'm so glad that it made it to you this time! (the first time it was returned to me due to a post office mistake, for those who are reading this and I sent it out again the next day.) I'm glad you like it and that you can use the stamps. :) I tried to make it as "birdy" as possible. Have a lovely spring! and thank you for the prompt rating and heart. :)

Comment: Elizabeth, thanks for the lovely spring ATC and your handwritten note. They definitely brightened up my day. It's already summer here in India, so I miss spring too!
Response: I'm so glad it made it there, safe and sound. :) I'm also so glad your day was brightened by what I sent. :) Thank you for the prompt rating and heart, and I do wish spring could have stayed with you a little longer, but say hello to summer for me. :)
