Hi Robin,

Well done on joining the Great Impression team, they are super stamps and have a number of them but sadly but they seem hard to get hold of in the UK now.

A super card using them and well done you on making a start to your 2017 Christmas cards.

Wishing you and yours a Happy New Year and thanks for your friendship during 2016.
