Fab card lovely image. I'm not allowed to use that med with my boys as it doesnt go with their inhalers I normally cant buy over the counter meds & have to have prescription only for them.

Hugs Vicky xx

Hi Coops, Fab card! Such a cute image and I love the punched borders. I am ashamed to say I bought this punch set a few months ago and have never taken them out of the packaging. Not because I don't like it but keep forgetting lol!

Glad to hear your little man is feeling better. Jamie is still feeling poorly so think I will keep him off school again tomorrow. Quite like having him at home with me :-)
