Hi Mandy. Thanks for this Advent event. What a lot of great cards etc. I am not sure if I have left my name in the right place, computers and me are not best friends! :) I have put my name and email address in add your link. Is this the place to enter the event? Sorry for being so dumb :( Take care.
