Last post for The Cupboard Trilogy

Morning everyone....hope you're all well this lovely Friday morning....and Happy St. David's Day to all my Welsh followers.
This is the first blog for today, but the my very last DT card for The Cupboard Trilogy. I've had to give up a couple of my DT's, owing to taking on tons more work with bigger companies, and there's simply not enough hours in the day to do it all. (thanks to Jane and the rest of the team for putting up with me for so long!)
And, of course, I want to help Adam get his shop properly on target, so that he can at least make some profit this year. It's scary knowing how much he's ploughed into this venture, so I want to be pushing him along (just like a mother should, haha)!
Anyway, onto my last card....the new challenge starts today at The Cupboard Trilogy, and the theme this month is
 'A Mother's Love'
 I've made this card in remembrance, of my beloved mam, and although she's been gone almost 10 years, I still miss and think of her every day......she was quite a character!

 Pink and white cardstock from Papermill , pink spotty paper free from a mag, and lace from my stash

Lattice plate and the flourish are dies from Cheery Lynn,  and the edge punch is from Martha Stewart.

The gorgeous paper flowers are from Petal-Lu, one of my new design team companies.....aren't they fab.
My mam liked flowers, and I took some in for her most weeks, but she always said 'Aww, what are you spending money on flowers for?' reply was that I wouldn't be able to take them for her when she was gone!
The funny thing is I now say exactly the same thing to my boys when they buy me flowers, not because I'm not grateful, it's just that I don't want them wasting their hard-earned money on me, when they have so much else to do with it! Alan always reminds me what I used to say to mam ;-)
Anyway, enough of this reminiscing......I'll be back later with another post, but until then, bye for now xx
