Mother's Day

Hi all, not really sure what happened to last week but I know I didn't find time to post.  There was a public holiday for ANZAC Day on the Thursday which seemed to throw the week out of whack.  Caught up with friends on the Tuesday then Friday, Saturday, Sunday hubby and I took off to Port Douglas.  Weather was great, a little windy at times.  We stayed at Thala Beach Lodge a very beautiful spot.  We didn't have an ocean view but could hear the ocean which I think has a very calming effect on me.  The first day I did lots of sleeping.  We did lots of walking, eating, eating, walking, more eating. lol  Our drive home we decided to go up the Rex Range which I don't think I have done at any stage and I grew up in the area.... a beautiful drive.  Had lunch at the Highlander Tavern at Julatten another beautiful spot...wonderful views and very nice food.  Then we continued our drive across the Atherton Tablelands to home.  Amazed at the temperature differences as we travelled across, we went from 26C in parts to 22.5C in other parts.

Monday was catch up day and today the plan was to garden but we have woken to rain so guess I will have to stay inside and craft.  :-(  :-)

I am sharing the last card we made at my friends Relay for Life fundraiser card making night with the lovely Ruth Massey(Stampin Up Demonstrator).  I really love the colours and the layout of this card.  Also happy to have one Mother's Day card ready to go.  The stamp set used is Stampin Up Everything Eleanor.

Hope everyone is well and wishing you a terrific Tuesday.
