Good evening all, hope you are well.

Tilda Catching Stars

Good morning my dear friends, 
I hope all you Mums had a wonderful Mothers day yesterday, I had a lovely day myself and a little giggle too because my eldest Son bought me a card (with money inside) & chocolates, he finished work at 5.30am and waited for me to get up before going to bed himself to get some sleep, when I opened my card it says 'Happy Mothers Day Nan' poor lad couldn't apologise enough lol,
he said he saw the cute bear and thought I'd like it, but didn't read the top message as he just expected it to be Mothers Day, well I did love it and he wondered off to bed exhausted saying goodnight Nan :o) bless him lol

I also managed to finish off this card yesterday for a few challenges.


Thanks again for looking and for all your lovely comments.
I have the dentist this morning (nothing painful thank goodness) then I shall be coming back to pay a visit to all your blogs...Ooh can't wait to see what you've all been up to. 
love & hugs
