Comment: Hi Pam! Thank you so much for the lovely B-day card! The older I get, the less cards I get (partly because I am terrible about sending them to pen pals and partly due to the decline in family members) - your card is just beautiful!! I would love to continue writing, so will get a letter in the mail in the next week or so, having some wrist issues - grrr! Thank you for the post cards as well - never met one I didn't love! LOL! Wishing you all the best and please stay safe! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)

Comment: Dearest Hester, Thank you for your calling card, it's very stylish. The envelope you made to put it is quite clever and I think I would like to try making one for my own card. I hope you will join me for tea on Tuesday next and do bring your dear sister. Affectionately, Elizabeth PS. I saw when I read your reply my star hadn't shown up so I have added it. My apologies.
