Such a fun card Nic and a fab choice of colours too...your colouring is amazing...I bought some non-drowsy antihistamine tabs for my son at the weekend...they were in Savers (cheap) and are made by Galpharm. They seem to be a bit better than the Lotaradine he has been taking...hope you get some relief soon :) Donna x

cardmaking bird said...

I think it's fab, Nic - men's cards work better when they're simple anyway (IMO!!) Sorry to hear you're suffering with the hayfever, my son gets it terribly, so I know what you're going through. If I were you, I'd get something from the doctors - that's what he has and it doesn't make him drowsy (which is good cos I don't want him nodding off at school LOL!) Hugs, Marie xxx

pickle said...

Anoither super creation Nic. i don't know where you find the time or the inspration to come up with so many gorgeous cards.

Sorry to hear the hayfevers giving you probs. I suffered all through my childhood with but it stopped when I was twenty one and thankfully I've never had it since.
Hope it eases for you soon
