I really hope she likes it and that she has the most amazing day.  She deserves it, what with the amount she has had to contend with in the past year.  She looked after me with me having a Stroke, altogether when she had Cancer.  She is brilliant, really she's one in a million.  We have to go to hospital tomorrow to find out if her Cancer has grown or moved, but it's your day today Mum.

I love you Mum.

  13. Hello Anne-Marie
    I just know your Mum is going to love this card, because not only is it absolutely gorgeous in all its detail; with the oversized cupcake that is beautifully coloured, and all the added elements, it also generates a feeling that it has been made with loving hands,even if one is not working like you would want it too.(I too know that feeling.) I hope you have a great day, and I also hope that it is good news tomorrow for your Mum.
