Lovely and Lilac!!

Morning Peeps!!
It's not often I big up my cards but do confess I really like this one and it was made for my lovely Mum, who is in hospital at the moment with a fractured pelvis.
Unfortunately she tripped in my kitchen and dislocated her shoulder and had trouble walking - to cut a long story short she has been in pain ever since and we have now found out after numerous trips to the hosp that she has fractured her pelvis in two places!!
So I would like to wish her a speedy recovery and hope she is able to come home soon.
Can you believe no stamping on this card it is purely punches and dies.
I have used the MS ribbon loop patp, SU owl punch and SU branch, MS hydrangea punch for the lil flowers and the Magnolia Fence.
Oops ! not to mention my lovely fluffy cloud punch by Fiskars.
Well I have a list that is never ending of things to do today and two birthdays this weekend my baby is going to be 15!!!
Eek! another year and I will have no children at school that will be very weird for me!!
I hope you have a lovely weekend and thank you for visiting me especially as I haven't been posting frequently, I appreciate you popping by x
