  5. Dear Yvonne.

    A million thanks for a great day last weekend at your home, and apologies for taking so long to log on to say what a great day we had. The cards we made were absolutely fantastic! And it's so helpful to have kits to bring home with us, where we have to put the real work in!! You really spoil us with the workshop kits...! Thank you for the delicious dinner and dessert. Garret's fudge was also very tasty!
    We were over at Anne's last night. I'll send you on the photos and hope you will join us at some stage for a fun night! Look forward to seeing you again in Portmarnock. Anyone still considering coming should make up their minds soon if they want to get a place...
    Love, Aileen xx
