If A Kiss Was A Raindrop I'd Send You Showers ....... DP2 Challenge #122

 I've had a day off from the moving and decorating of our friend Paula's new "ground floor bungalow"  applause.  Only because I needed to make a birthday card for my Mum's 76th birthday on Saturday party.  We're gonna take her out for dinner and try to make the day special, although its not going to be a good day without angelDad with her in person.  However, I'm sure he'll be flying on his angelwings to be close by her.  She's had a tough old week, obviously worried worried about the results of her biopsy for skin cancer, which are due next Wednesday and she's struggling with not being able to do anything, thus giving her too much time to thinking think! .... chance would be a fine thing for me raised eyebrows ....

This is Paula's bedroom which I completed stripping with the help of  "The Outlaws" before Paula arrived on Saturday ...

This is moi yesterday, after putting up the wallpaper and starting the painting .... happy as a oink smiley in sh**

"My Sentiments Exactly"  is this weeks DP2 Challenge big grin.

For my card I used the beautiful "Waiting For Rain" image from Mo's Digital Pencil ...
