Happy Mothers Day  i hope that  you all had a lovely day.

I had to brave the garage and dig out a few tools and paper to make my mothers day cards. The first thing that i grabbed was one of my Cocoa Daisy kits and the second thing was a Stampin Up butterfly punch.
So here is the end result.I made two of these.

As Mothers day was at our house this year, yes gasp amongst the uncompleted bathrooms, ripped up carpet and lovely paint smells we had a delightful brunch. My cousin Nicky and her family were over from the UK via Sydney (long story) and they came as well so it was a really great day. My niece took some wonderful photos on my camera and i will have fun scrapping them. So as i knew that Nicky was coming and that my SIL-Grace loves handmade cards i used the supplies i had at hand to make a little card pack for them both, so i made two each of these cards.

and a little note card made with the stamp from the Cocoa daisy kit, did i mention that all kits come with a stamp.

Hopefully our ensuite will be finished tomorrow, then we will be able to get the new carpet laid in the bedrooms.

I hope that like me you had a lovely day.
Enjoy the up coming week.
and still no new glasses.
