New Home

Before I get to today's creation, I want to wish our baby girl Danni a very Happy 18th Birthday. Love you xx

Today's creation is a 'just because' make that I made a while ago for my friend & boss Amy (of Natalie & Amy's). She has recently moved into her new house, she is sharing with her sister. So I thought I'd make them a card to celebrate.
