Tea Party

Hi everyone. Hope you're all okay especially those in Australia who are being affected by cyclone Debbie (not named after me, I promise!) Stuart's has a cousin in MacKay whose area was evacuated. We don't know yet if they opted to evacuate although her property is only one street away from the beach and 8½m waves were expected.

Did everyone who's a mum in the UK have a great Mother's Day? I had my Mother's Day outing on Saturday at a craft fair in Doncaster with spending money from Stuart too. What more could you want :D!?

Right on to today's card which is using a LOTV stamp called Tea Party.

A close up of the image...

Chris is looking forward to the cooler weather there. They're supposed to be staying at Stuart's cousin in a few weeks if they haven't been damaged by the cyclone!
