  1. Hi

    Thanks for making such beautiful flash cards

    May I ask: I want to make an mobile game where the kids can try to guess
    the word of each card, can I use your flash cards in my game? If it’s OK,
    how can I give credits to you?

    The game is free, but I’ll have ads display.

    Thanks a lot in advance
