Happy Mothers Day....

Morning everyone hope you all have a loving happy fun filled Mothers Day, and that you get to put your feet up and be pampered for a day, I'm ussually the first up in my house so there will be no cup of tea in bed.....well there would if I stayed in bed until
I'll tell you a funny story about one Mothers Day, when my son was at school he did Domestic science and he made a lovely sponge filled flan and in the centre was fruit, It was scrummy, so for Mothers Day he decided to cook another one for me as a surprise, now you need one of those tins that has the centre filled in to make the flan part and we didn't have one, anyway on the day I got presented with another scrummy looking flan.....he confessed that he had used the DOG bowl to cook it in, he did say he'd washed it before using it, I didn't know whether to laugh or cry, its one of those little memories that will stay with me for ever, by the way I didn't eat it although he said he'd washed the bowl out......thats kids for you.

Thought I'd share with you a couple of cards that I made using images from The Ooh La La Cd called Fleur D' the vintage looking doily images with the pretty floral papers with the posies on.

Gorgeous card, really pretty! Love the dog bowl story..... had to read it out to the family who also found it amusing!! What an ingenious idea!! I am glad we don't have a dog because I am sure this is a tip my 12 year old son (who wants to become a pastry chef) would no doubt use!!! Thank you for joining us at MMCS xx
