Dorcas, very emotional this is. My heart jumped and could't help it, but this is so beautiful my eyes began leaking ;)

btw, we had absolutely fabulous weekend. Weatherwise Friday was the worst,it really was pouring down, but of course "nobody even noticed"! Sunday 12086 attended. Feels amazing and privileged.

Dorcas, this is gorgeous. Love the pop of red and the tones are subtle and beautiful Perfect. Reminds me of the photographs when they started to add color, and no I don't personally remember that time LOL.

I love this image Dorcas. A couple of dear hearts still in love after all this time. I love to see elderly couples still holding hands. You did a lovely job with your paper piecing. A very nice card indeed.
