Friends.

Good morning all.
I hope you are all well.
My laptop is now fully functional again, my keyboard finally came and my brother put it in yesterday, it was so easy to connect too.
I am now banned from eating near it though as there were quite a few biccy crumbs inside, oops my bad and also i am too heavy handed on the keys so gently gently i must go.
Enough of my waffle and on to my card which i am entering into the following challenges:
