Going to Fetch Mum

Had a phonecall from the hospital and Mum is coming out today.

It's such a relief not to have to to and fro.
There are five lots of roadworks between there and here.
Nightmare. Not only that, the road was closed yesterday, due to an accident.
I didn't know an alternative route, so never got there. Grrrr
I'm fetching her about 3pm and expect
I'll be at her bungalow 'till after the carer calls at 6pm.

I've managed to make one card at any rate.

It's a 'no particular reason' card. (Most of 'em are)! LOL

I used common or garden pink card from Craft Central.

A piece of SU Christmas paper. Dotty side up, then it's not Christmassy.

The Nesty rectangle was done with a piece of SU card.

(From Jennifer).

Then my Tiers of Treats stamp. ( I DO love this stamp). ;0)

I coloured the cakes with Marvy Le Plumes

and also the cherries that I stamped onto the pink card.

The sentiment is from the same set as the cherry.

(Hero Arts Birthday Cupcakes).

Thanks for stopping by.
