Comment: Thank you for everything!
Response: Sure thing! Thanks for joining this swap=)
Comment: Thank you, Collette! The postcard is beautiful. Sparkling, glittery and with elements in the dark shade of blue which I absolutely love ;). Thank you for the quote and extra PCs. The yellow one with a tiny spider is so cute. Is the weather still so unpredictable in Yakima? Here, in the north of Poland we have a real mix-up of spring and winter all the time ;). Best wishes!
Response: Oh, I am so glad you liked it. I thought the glitter might be too much. Not many people request spider post cards so I thought it would be a fun one to send=) Our weather is so much more springy now even though it is raining today. Hope you are enjoying your spring!!
