Spring Joy


Ok i'm officially a disaster area !!! - on Monday son wanted scrambled egg on toast for lunch, so i put the egg in a bowl and put in microwave, i got it out went to put a fork in it to fluff it up and it exploded in my face - hurting my left eye lid and underneath, i phoned OH who came home from work with an Aloe Vera plant - I put 2 leaves on my face and it was a miracle it took all the heat away and fortunately i have not blistered - but all son could say was 'Mummy why have you got a plant on your face and why can't i go to the farm' - 4 year olds for you !!!

I must confess this is not a stamp i have, i was lucky enough that a friend of mine sent me some images to play with - as there was a challenge at the moment using 'Green, Yellow and or Pink' and i had some fabby Stampin Up papers that were just those colours, i thought i would join in and also this card will be going to 'Martins House Hospice' in Leeds, as somebody on Docrafts wanted some Easter cards, and as i don't send any i thought this would be a very worthy thing to do.
