Catered Crop Recipe Swap–The Heart of the Matter

Yeah!   I was finally able to get into my craft room this weekend for the first time since the end of November.    With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I decided to make a card for my daughter.   I had to give Wryn blonde hair like my daughter’s.
