for all the kind comments re mum and my cards. Glad to say Mum is now at my sister's recuperating. My youngest son took DH and me down to Somerset to see Mum yesterday. I think she thought she would be able to carry on with everything where she had left off. She has of course found out that she can't. She is still in pain and finding it difficult to move. She has a cough and gets breathless and her legs and ankles are swollen. Hopefully she will improve a little each day.

We have had some gorgeous weather and with it everything coming alive including a tree we thought had died that my sister and family had bought us for our Ruby wedding Anniversary.

On Saturday morning I went to cardmaking class. The cards we made were designed by Linda.

Thanks for looking. Anne x


  1. Hi Anne. Pleased to hear your Mum is improving, little by little is the way. Super photos and I just love your cards! Di xx

  3. Hi Anne, I hope that your Mum gets all better soon. We dealt with the loss of our 4 of our parents over the last many years and it's hard. Love your flowers and your cards! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  4. So glad your mum is feeling better, Anne. And your flowers and cards are lovely. Thanks for sharing. <3

  5. Hi Anne, glad your Mum is starting to recover, hopefully she'll be back to her best very soon. Some lovely cards there from class and your garden must be looking fab with all those blooms! x
