Hi Nic, sorry to hear you are not so well - especially at this busy time when you just can't be ill - there's too much to do :( You need some tlc, methinks. Your card is lovely - great colours and the image is terrific, she's what my mother would have called a proper little madam :)) Here's hoping you are over the worst of what ails you now and will be well enough to enjoy Christmas day.
