Totally Tilda & Paper Play DT Cards - Hats & Love Letters

Hello peeps,
Oh dear guess who's been having a bad few days! I 'm still coughing and sneezing like mad & have been on a one woman destruction mission lol! 
First my computer mouse conked out, then sat at my desk making a card I started sinking down as the gas cylinder in my swivel chair had died, too many chocolate buttons maybe lol, the new mouse caused my laptop to crash & then my laptop took a tumble when I was drugged up & nodding off to sleep while trying to catch up with some blogging and it has been so very poorly, I could only get it to stay on for a few minutes before shutting itself down. I feared it was terminal but fingers crossed after many hours of talking nicely to it & gently stroking it & trying to run a restore & various scans I have managed to fix it without the need of a trip to PC World, so I'm a happy girlie again :)
Today I have a couple of DT cards to share, one of which is very late due to my poorly laptop.
