Friend to Friend...

Hello, how are you?  My dear friend, I thought I would make you a little card.  It has a great little gift attached!  That cute little flower is removable, wear it in your hair, or on a cute blouse, perhaps on your purse?  The oportunities are endless.  I hope you enjoy it, I really liked making it for you!
