A birthday card for my Mum..

Morning Lovelies, Hope you are all well.
 Thankfully I have finished my antibiotics and I am starting to feel better and much like my old self again. I wouldn't want to take those again in a hurry!!

I will be popping on throughout this week as its a special one for my family. My lovely mum is 80 this Saturday and my sister is throwing her a party. We are all going, I am the youngest of 5, there are 10 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren. My mums 2 brothers and my Dads sister are hopefully all coming too, so I think it will be a fab day.

I am making cakes, birthday cards and her birthday cake so I will pop on to share some pics of these as and when they get done.

I don't need to worry about her seeing anything as she doesn't have internet access, (and doesn't want it, may I add!! lol)

So this first card I have to share is for my kids to give to their Gran.
My mum was a machinist at one time and when I saw this cute tilda with her sewing machine I knew it would be perfect for her.
