Better late than Never!

Well its been one of those weeks but its going ok....
without boring you all for those of you that don't know my Mum had a stroke and was in hospital for 4 and a bit weeks... shes came home wednesday and is settling in ok...
shes very confused and needs lots of help...

I have been going every day and also working and keeping house at home too so its been a bumpy week for all of us... but Hubby is my Rock and my Son is a trooper too!
and Dad is doing a great job even though he is convinced he isn't!

so Here is my card from As You Like It challenge and its Late as the challenge started Thursday but Better late than Never! Right!

We are sponsored by the talented Tammy Louise of 
Shape EZ

The challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
your Favourite Special Occasion & Why.
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

I think I have to say my favorite occasion is Birthday as its the occasion I make the most cards for! thehehheee! this card is from my Son to my Mum it was her Birthday while she was in hospital and her face really lit up when she saw the card, really made me smile and have tear

Here are a few challenges I am playing along with:
Allsorts - Fur and Feathers
One Stop Craft - Summer Colors
Totally Gorjuss - Sweet
Word Play Saturday - Birthdays
Annabelle Stamps Challenge - Polka Dots
