For Mum.......

Morning all..Hope you all had a great weekend, didn't it go quickly.

Hope all you Mum's out there were spoilt rotten, breakfast in bed, flowers, chocolates ect..

My wonderful & very special Son & Daughter gave me a rose scrub called Mum in a million, bless them think they thought I did not like it as I started to cry, I came over all emotional....I still (9 years on) and always will feel very blessed to have them after years of waiting for them and thinking I would never get a chance to be a Mummy and that's all I have ever wanted out of life, more than anything else.. 

Will now have to get out in our Garden and finish the tiding up and find room to plant my new rose...oh I do love roses and can't wait to see it flower, it's a pink one...

We had a lovely day yesterday, visiting my hubby's  Mum,in the morning and then we went to my Mum & Dads in the afternoon and had tea with them, our Katie enjoyed helping make the tea and tiding up afterwards and didn't want Mother's day to end, bless her...

Today I would like to share my card I made for my lovely Mum for Mother's Day...I have used a gorgeous Cherry Lynn Butterfly die (thanks Mum) and my new Whimsy shapeology dies called Vines, love them and thinks me going to use these lots and also one of the new adorable LOTV stamps called Pretty Bouquet... Mum and me love this image and rushed straight to the LOTV stand at the Make it Show as it opened to both buy it and a few more lol...
