  4. はろはろ、Yuriさん、ごきげんようぅぅ〜♪(^o^)/"""
    Yuriさ〜ん、ゴメンナサイねー!!! コアラおばちゃん、すっかり抜けて、ワタシのブログにコメント頂いて、いつもならすぐに返信するはずなのに、その前に頭の中でYuriさんと会話した記憶があって、それはワタシがYuriさんのブログにコメントしたから会話が成立していたような感じで…勘違いしてしまって、ワタシのブログ返信を忘れちゃってたの〜!!!

    このカワイイrolled paper rosesもカワイイですね♪ワタシも手作りしてみようとしたけど、中々上手にできなくて〜…♪
    このThe Ribbon GirlはUKなんですね♪ワタシの好きなThe First Edition PP(?、正式名、忘れちゃった!)も確かUKだったような…。UKもクラフト天国だから、とても魅力的で素敵なアイテムが沢山!!!(^.^;)"
    あ、それから〜、これまでYuriさんの素敵な作品を沢山拝見させて頂いていますが、ワタシも〜同じくずっと前から欲しかったLa-La Land Craftsのダイなどを久しぶりにgetしてしまいました♪(^.^;)"
