Another fantastic selection of cards! I’ve left some love but sadly I just can’t comment on some people’s blogs from my iPad (hint for anyone reading: having your commenting open in a separate window seems to get rid of a persistent “sign in” problem some iOS devices seem to throw up with Blogger!)

Gorgeous cards, everyone - sorry if I can't post on each individual's post. I know what you mean about commenting, Joanne - hard to do from my iPhone so I just wait for the laptop :) But I don't have everyone's forum (eg Instagram).
