I absolutely love what you did with the Retro Christmas set, it is so beautiful it almost makes me want to cry. Exactly the type of card that keeps me coming back here and what had me come here in the first place, and even more special to see these stamps worked with such loveliness. Thank you so very much for the smile this morning.
