Comment: Your box of goodies came today and it brought a smile to my face! Thanks for all the lovely stuff. Please thank your sis for me too. The bookmark is in my fav colour. Can't wait to try all the cocoa. Am going to save it for a rainy day (It's really hot here now with temperatures of 37-40C). If I could give you more hearts, you deserve everyone of them!

Comment: I LOVE your homemade card!! So artsy! I have not attempted to make one yet but think I'd like to try. I'm too self-conscious about my art work. Can you tell me what you used to mount it on? And...what kind of paint did you use for the background? Thanks! You can send me a homemade card any time!!
Response: I'm glad you liked it!!.I used some thin card board I had and I used acrylic paint for the background.
