Hello there from One Happy Mum!

Good Morning, and thank you so much for visiting today.....hope the sun is shining, where you are and you are having a lovely weekend so far! So I've been back to work this week, its been busy but not so bad, and its nice to spend time with my lovely work friends.  Hubby hasn't had too bad a week, and is recovering slowly, but well. My very good news for you is that my wonderful daughter, Megan, got her GCSE results on Thursday and I am delighted to share that she got 8A's (to go with the 2A's that she got last year) and 2B' say we are incredibly proud of her is an understatement! We had already treated her to a new laptop as a "Well Done for working so hard" treat, but I have the feeling that a few more congratulations-type gifts will be popping up too, lol....we will wait until the old chap is feeling better, then have a nice meal out to celebrate, both!
So, I do have a card to share....and once again I went for the eau du nil papers, I just adore them! At the moment The Glitter Pot have free p&p, so after weeks of longing for them, I treated myself to the Wild Rose set of these papers......oooh they are yummy and you'll be seeing them here a lot, methinks.
The sentiment is one of my own creations, using Zitpy-do and Dancing script fonts, for the embellies I used a few oldies here....the flowers are cut with a woodware punch that I've had almost as long as I've been doing this stuff, the wee white and teal brads I've had for ages too, and the same with the lace. Its always nice to have a root around in your older stash, you're going to look at some of it and wonder what on earth you were thinking of when you bought it....but sometime you find some real treats!

Thanks for visiting me today......enjoy the weekend!

Hugs from me xx
