  12. Hi Linda, nice to meet another Aussie card maker. I too love making cards for everyone and use them as a way of keeping in touch with family and friends. I love having my friends cards around and often my Christmas cards stay strung up in the house til Easter - I have for years, everyone comments I haven't taken them down but as you know they're there to reread and as a reminder of special people in our lives who took the time to keep in touch. I've had a look at your cards and really like your style.Cheers Robyn
