Hope you enter this, Charmaine, and win! (You seem to be on a winner's streak lately, so good timing to give this a go!) I'm wondering why someone put a snake in the water in that winning entry from last year.... oooky. Don't put a snake on your entry, okay?

I'm so envious of people who have lovely handwriting.

& from the sounds of the comments above, you have fancy writing. So you should enter. & post a photo of your entry. So that I can be envious :)
