Yet another cold!

After being cold free for a little while Alex has brought back another cold from nursery and we are completely full of it.  As a result there has been very little sleep in this household and at night time we have a small boy who is playing up big time because he is so tired he doesn't know what to do about it. That said we have managed to have some fun in the evenings and spent some time 'fixing things' this evening with his drill, hammer and spanner.
Crafting wise I haven't had time for much this week although I have made a hat for Alex to wear to a pirate party he is going to on Saturday. I just loved the teddy scull & cross bones as it amused me!
I also made a simple Mr Men birthday card for my nephew who turns 4 this week. The card is fairly simple and bright and is based on this weeks Unscripted sketch...I replaced the ribbon across the top with the Happy Birthday banner.  As the card is a birthday card it fits with the stamp something 'birthday theme' and it also fits with the PTW 'shiny, sparkly & special' theme. I hope you all have a great rest of the week.

Do you think there could be an element of hay fever? The oak trees are well out now and a prime culprit.
