Mother's Day Card

What a fabulous week we are having with the weather, I was so in need of a bit of sun after the long winter we have had. All the daffodils are out now and Summer is starting to edge closer.
Today I have the Mother's Day card I made for my Mum to show you (yes I know, I should have shown it a while ago). I am unsure of the backing papers as they were in my stash but the lovely little box of chocolates that Tilda is sitting on is an Alota one that I picked up in a sale, isn't it adorable and so versatile. I have also used the Deep Edge Daisy by Martha Stewart (another punch I love but unfortunately don't yet own - thanks Sue).I am a bit down today as my parent are off on their regular 3 months abroad trip and I really hate it when they are not here. I am very close to my parents and brothers and already hate the fact that my 2 older brothers live in Australia. But unfortunately this is life and they have to live the way it suits them best (just wish it was a bit closer). Anyway, they will all be back the week before my baby brother gets married at the end of July and I will be very busy with wedding preparations which will hopefully make the time go quickly.
Hope you all enjoy the beautiful weekend we are in for and will be back soon.
