IF you don't know what to write - maybe you want to tell me:
♫ What's your favorite day of the year /the week?
♫ What was your favorite toy as a kid?
♫ When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?
♫ What is the one, single food that you would never give up?

♫ If you could have one superpower, which would you choose?
♫ If you could bring a character from your fav. book to life - who would it be?
PLEASE send me no ad/free cards (except from my favourites), I only send them to collectors and as I don't collect them, please be kind and send me any other card you like.
PLEASE send me no handmade cards except professional printed ones or made with love, scissors, glue, needles, fabric,... . I don't like getting photos or loveless printed cards.
