Morning peeps, how's it hanging?
Before I show you my latest creation I'd just like to tell EVERYONE how generous my mother is! Has she bought me a car? I hear you ask... A new outfit? A house, maybe? No, none of these, although if you could give her a nudge, it might help! She has generously shared all her disease-ridden germs with her oldest daughter (she's not so generous with her youngest!). Yes, I have a cold... and its a stinker! Thanks Mum!!!
I don't know if its the women of her 'era' or if people today are generally more moany (is that even a word?), but whilst I am coughing and spluttering, dripping and blowing, moaning and groaning - she is merrily (and quietly, unlike me) getting on with things! Whilst I bemoan my unfortunate laspe into sickness land, she is carrying on with a smile on her face... God I love that woman! I don't think I could admire anyone more, than I do my mother. She is the most positive person I know and it is ALWAYS wonderful to be with her - I do wish she would keep her germs to herself, however!
I was looking through my Cricut cartridge collection yesterday (like you do) and realised I hadn't shown you anything from the 'JUST BECAUSE CARDS' cartridge, so inbetween coughing and nose-wiping, I came up with this (I don't think I'll be giving it to anyone I really like - its probably got too many germs on it!)...
