Comment: Wow these are great playing cards, thank you so much! Often times the same cards just keep going around and around, but 6 of the 7 you sent are new to me. Woo hoo! This was a super fun envelope to open. :-)

Comment: Like the card. I have never saw that before. Gluten free crusts are either weird tasting or good if you add enough stuff on it to hid the taste. I found I like the bread if I turn it into garlic toast. lol
