evening all, i won`t say good cos i`ve started sneezing i ain`t getting what i hed earlier in the year before i went on my hols :(.
would help if i could have the flu and swine flu jabs but because they contain egg i can`t tolerate it.only had the jab once years ago and was very ill, my little man can`t have it either.
anyway on a lighter note,in between sneezes i`ve managed to rustle up this quick card which i am entering into the following challenges:
