TJ Lubrano said...

Welcome welcome!

Glad your feeling better again! I don't know what it is tho...I also got sick during the holidays (really such a perfect timing...-_-')...but sometimes it feels like it's still there...lingering around...annoying!
I do hope it stays far far away!

Pass the vitamins please!!

Sorry got sidetracked. I like every single illustration!! So what kind of paper did you use where you drew the cats/grannies/maids and other characters on ^_^?
Can't wait to see the others!!

Do take care! Ciao!
