Welcome back and happy 2016!
Some women have a signature fragrance and some have a signature jewel. I, apparently, have a signature illness. I started getting sick at the end of term and by December 23rd, it was official: I had walking pneumonia again. I was down and out for the entire Christmas break, but I'm almost recovered. I got an inhaler on Monday to help with a persistent dry cough; once that's fixed, I should be good as new!
It would seem that my allergies are the root of the problem as I'm allergic to everything, and my lungs are being seriously compromised by the dogs. The doctor has ordered Spouse and Gigi to brush the dogs and vacuum daily (as they promised they would when they first dragged those mutts into our house). So I'm hoping my reign as the the queen of The Big Wheeze will be over soon. 😉
Okay, so how about that Card Chain Challenge?

*This is an international card exchange - you send a handmade card to the person above you on the list, and you receive one from the person below you on the list. If that's not enough of a win-win, I also randomly draw a prize winner each month. I do a reveal of all the cards with links to the challenge participants' blogs or online photo galleries - which is a great way to increase exposure to your blog or photo gallery!. Please read the Rules and FAQ's if you want to play along. :~D
