Thanks!

Hi everyone,
 
What a beautiful day today. The sun was so warm, that the cooling breeze was very welcome. Husband cut the grass and I did a bit of weeding and lots of planting of bulbs. I must say that the garden looks very pretty with all the spring flowers out. My wild garden area is gorgeous.
 
I am off out for lunch tomorrow for Mother's Day, with my daughter and her mother-in-law. My daughter and her husband are treating us both. I get on with her MIL very well, so we will have a good laugh.
 
This card I made and sent to Marianne, as a thank you for my gorgeous goodies, that I won as candy on her blog.
 
The stamp is from the latest release from Lili of the Valley, called Annabel Roller Girl. I love the little dog in her back pack. She was great fun to colour, with Distress Ink and DI pens.
 
 

The flowers, leaf and dragon fly brad, are from my stash. The pink dots are Cosmic Shimmer Dusky Pink Glue.

 
I think the tag was magazine freebie, although can't confirm that. One of the joys of getting old, you memory is rubbish. I used to know all the Latin names for my garden plants.(sad I know). I still know them but need my garden fork to dig them out of my head. They are buried in my brain but the path to my mouth must be blocked!Lol!
 
 
It's now 12.55 am and I have just remembered, we have an hour less in bed tonight. So in fact, it is now 13.55 so I had better get to bed.
 
Thank you for taking time to visit my blog and leaving me such wonderful messages. I love reading them, as they make me smile.
 
Happy Mothers Day to all the Mums out there and have a wonderful day.
