  21. KIM!! First, I'm so behind in commenting and second: HAPPY BIRTHDAY (belated)! We're on a wee road trip (as of yesterday) and in all my hustle and bustle to get things done, I didn't accomplish what I 'should' have - as in making you a card! I'll make up for it somehow! Your card for Maria: stylish, pretty, awesome! I know she loves it, as do I!! Hugs~c
