I hope you all had a great 'Mother's Day', for those that are Mum's - mine was a bit weird as it was also my OH's birthday that day !! - as for presents OH doesn't buy me anything from son, as one year he bought me plastic toot, that i told him don't waste your money in future, - but i did think son's nursery would get son to make something - even a card, but NO, i got absolutely nothing from his nursery, and to say i was really upset, is an understatement - the nurseries response is we can't make him do anything, he doesn't want to do !!

Anyway moan over and on to todays Card - i must confess this is not one of my stamps, but an image that my very good friend Ann sent me, thanks hun - i've turned it into an easel card, and as there are still a couple of Mothers Day challenges around i thought i would combine it, as the card will come in useful for next January, when i post my 10 cards off to SOS for them to send to our troops in Afghanistan.

Ahh, poor Sam, never mind you might get lots of surprises tomorrow, my o/h never ever bought me mothers day things either, but my son always made a card, more embarassing one year he pickrd all the snowdrops at the church & presented me in front of everyone.
Nice card by the way, Enjoy tomorrow Ann x
