    I don't know if I'll be able to make a card for the last day of the Bugaboo CIJ or not. We have family coming in and I might not have time since the freebie doesn't come out until tomorrow. Although sometimes I work better under pressure. Anyway, if I don't make it I still wish you good luck. I see you in basically all the challenges I play in.
