I am sooo lucky!

I am such a lucky girl! It was my birthday yesterday and I had such a lovely day :-) Loads of cards and pressies - mostly either crafty or gardening gifts. I have such wonderful friends and family.

I really wanted to share with you the card that my son George made for me. He's only 5 and I think he's done really well :-) He's used some of the Country Companions stuff from Docrafts and some of my paper scraps. I think they're Forever Friends (the pink one) and Wild Rose Studio (the green one). He added some gems and ribbons from my stash and then coloured some tiny punched hearts with promarkers and added them at the bottom. I did a bit of cutting out for him but everything else is his own work.

Anyway, I thought he deserved to try his luck in a challenge so he's entering this into Messy's Mini Missions which has an Easter/Spring theme - Good luck, George!

And then my eldest son, Marc (15) decided he'd make me a birthday cake too! I think he was kind of hoping for it to rise a little more than it did (he kept calling it a biscuit, lol) but I have to say that it's absolutely delicious! Thankyou so much :-)

If every birthday was like this, I really wouldn't mind getting older (or should that just be old???)!

Anyway, back in a mo with my own creation :-)

Love 'n' hugs,
