Message from Little Claire: Wow, this is such a lovely card Maxine and what a great idea, thank you!

It being Friday, here is the lucky winner (chosen at random) of our 'what makes you happy' comp: Heidi who said  
'These are lovely stamps so cute.  Snuggles in bed with my babies (well not babies 5, 1l and 16) make me the happiest.
Thanks for more super stamps'

Well done Heidi, pls contact Carol with your address. 
Thank you to everyone who submitted their happy thoughts they really were a pleasure to read.
