Playing Cards !!


My burn was starting to heal really nicely, until i woke up Sunday morning and i had some how taken the skin off of some of it - boy was it painful, but it seems to have settled down a little now, thank goodness.

Gee what sort of card do you make for Alan's (other half) nephew who is at Southampton University studying 'Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering', who is going to be 21 on Thursday !!!, well after some thought i remembered seeing an idea in a magazine using playing cards to spell out the number, so that is what i have done.

What do you think of my new sidebars ?? - Shabbyblogs told me i had to change it before the end of January, or i would loose it, anyway after a little scrolling through i found this one and it's called 'Whisper', so i just had to have it !!!
