Happy Sunday and Happy Mother's Day. I hope all you lovely Mum's out there are having a fabby day and are being spoilt. .
It has been a week of lots of work and lots of celebrating here as I needed to have a birthday and a wedding anniversary .. .. and now Mother's Day all in the space of less than a week.
The London Kids came last weekend and we did lots of celebrating with them too. Not looking forward to stepping on the scales tomorrow!! But hey .. .. life is for enjoying isn't it!!!
We have been off to my lovely Mum this morning before my brother came to collect her and this was the card I made for her .. .. super early this morning!! Well it felt early with having to put the clocks forward.
Mum certainly didn't have any problem finding a heart that's for sure.
As I have been harping on about my Mum for over a year now I thought it might be nice for you to finally meet her (I did ask her this morning if she would mind .. .. and she was fine with it).
This is a picture I took of her at the start of this year. Doesn't she look fabulous for 88! She has never been a sun worshiper and I think that is why her skin is so lovely and pretty much "wrinkle free". I never spend a lot of time in the sunshine either so I am hoping I might follow in her footsteps.
Certainly this time last year she didn't look anything like this .. .. she was one very poorly lady. But thankfully she is made of strong stuff and we managed to "rear her" and are lucky to be able to spend more happy days with her making special memories. Happy Mother's Day Mum xx So happy it isn't this time last year!
Anyway, my card for Mum was made using lots of snippets that were piled up from having a wedding invitation cutting session. All the flowers and leaves .. .. and even the jar, cut perfectly from some of the narrow strips. I probably have enough piled up to make a few hundred of these cards LOL!!
So as there has been a culling of "a few" snippets I am running over to Pixie's Snippets Playground to see if the sun is shining and anyone is up for a go on the see-saw.
Hoping for a much less stressful week this week as last week was very hectic .. .. and hopefully a more active blog too .. .. especially as I have a forfeit to pay for not posting a Christmas card last week!!!
Anyway that is me for today .. .. but before I go can you remember the "happy couple" who had to cancel their wedding just before Christmas because the groom was taken into hospital .. .. well they finally got married yesterday! Yay!! .. .. .. and the weather was just perfect for them. I can't wait to see some photographs.
