So today started with being awoken with my eldest boy putting a card on my pillow and then him going to wake his brother so that they could come into together - then my lovely hubby got a box off the wardrobe - which had been there over a week apparently and it was covered in Emma Bridgewater paper and ribbon (hubby earning brownie points!)
He had ordered me a new mug to go with the pieces that he had purchased me at Christmas and I have to say this is fast becoming my new obsession and Ebay is not helping! The mug that the boys had bought for me was personalised with the word 'mummy' however the weirdest thing about my new mug is that was it was inspected by - Joyce... My mum was called Joyce and she passed away 18 years ago - spooky! I think you will agree...
The cards that my boys made are beautiful and even Aidan (3) has tried very hard to sign his name - bless...
So we had a quick breakfast showered and dressed and got into the car to rive to my dads to surprise my stepmum with lunch and her presents - had told her we would not make it down to see them this year!
Saw my brother and family and that was lovely and then this afternoon we went to the park with my sister and family - a truly lovely day!
The card that I made for my stepmum was made using one of the stampin' Up! hostess sets and I think that it is beautiful - the colours I chose to use were pretty in pink and rose red, the card that I used for the image panel was confetti white and I attached the the butterflies using dimensionals... I distressed the edges to the card stock panels and I also inked the edges. I also added some card candi - I really wish that we had SU candi - I would be in co-ordination heaven!
I hope you all had a great day too and spent it with special people! Thanks for looking
