Aww, you're welcome. I'm happy I could help!

These are beautiful, Michelle! You've outdone yourself this time! The doors look like completely new ones - and ones that it will be a joy to use, at that. I very seldom use the OFB doors and windows because of the... limited colour options (white and turquoise, seriously? And blue glass?), but that's definitely going to change now. So thank you very much for these!

I've always liked these doors but the limited color options made me not want to use them. Now I'm probably use them in every lot I make, Thank you!

As I was going through my list of thanked downloads, I see I overlooked this one. Shame on me! Thank you for all your recolors.
