  4. Is this international?🙂

    • Emma,

      I didn’t ask, but usually people don’t want to pay for the higher postage. I am sure they would be happy to do that if the winner was willing to send the money they would need to pay. But then it might not be worth it to the winner. I would have to say, “No” because of that. So sorry!

      Kathy

  5. Thanks for the opportunity!
