Another lovely Reveal post! Thanks to everyone who has helped wrap the planet in our chain of friendship and creativity. I couldn't comment on every card in the chain as some aren't as yet posted on individual blogs. Thanks as always to Gail the Wonder Bunny for all the work she puts into this challenge, Jo x
