Good evening word i am earlier again.i hope you are all warm, the snow has melted slightly but then refroze so its lethal on the pavements and roads.
so i`ve not really done a lot today, been a bit lazy card is going to be for my little man, i thought the wording was very apt for the little strop monster.hes normally most of the time well behaved but threw a wobbler this morning and ended up breaking his ds and saying something to me which was very hurtful, but hey oh mrs rhino skin here has accepted his apology and hug :D

Great card for a little lad. Proper father chistmas stuff. Love the traditional colours and fab colouring. I hate Abba too I don't understand when i'm at a "do" all the women rush to the dance floor when dancing queen comes on.There's only one thing more cringe worthy and that's "push the button",lol.
