Honey is well! Monday was her big operation and she was so groggy when we collected her it very nearly made me feel guilty about putting her through it but she well be so much better for it! She was speyed as she keeps having phantom pregnancies and her hormones were all over the place!!

I've been busy making Mother's Day cards for others as I no longer have my Mum. Here is one I made which I hope you like, the idea was from a cardmaking magazine a couple of years ago. I really like it as it is so different and each one I make looks so unique due to the different PP used. The photos aren't brilliant as the flash has bounced off the pretty buttons but it still gives an idea of what it was like. The card I find looks quite bare when the flower is undone but once it's opened I think the balance is much better.
I used Basic Grey PP and Pink Petticoat 'washed out' in rose and papaya. Ribbons, buttons, bling & rub-ons from stash, threading water border punch and woodware tag punch.
I'm looking forward to seeing my girls this weekend, hope everyone has a lovely weekend.
