Sunshine said...

This card is sweet and love the candle! I got a little confused though as to what was what here. I left a comment on the snowman post too until I realized it was for something else...oops..its a terrific card, don't get me wrong but I wonder if I am the only one to think its the card in the hop?? It will make determining comments a bit confusing later on. Prolly just me though. ; ^)
