Comment: Perfect cards for me - I love them all so much! What an awesome Disneyland card from 19 years ago!, 2 amazing maps and then the adorable Pooh card! All new to me and going right in my collections, after I display them for awhile on my favorites rack. It will be the first time I display every card from one swap - that's how special they all are to me. Thank you also for the pretty heart stickers.
Response: So glad you like them! :)
