    Another great challenge ladies with some gorgeous DT cards as always!
    Wendy left me a comment about linking my card, I thought that I’d done it correctly, maybe it’s because I’ve only put LS5?????
    If that isn’t sufficient just let me know and I will change it. Thanks, Julie x

    • Eileen Godwin

      Hi Julie .. thank you for the kind comment .. LS5 is okay by me but it did take me a while to work it out lol ! I’ll just follow all your Lavinia Stamp posts and let everyone know what you mean ! lol
