Last flower cards for at least a little while LOL

Good morning Bloggers, I hope you are all comfortable in this horrible weather. Yes I did say horrible, I am on my knees begging for some COOL weather!
Finally, 8 months after being made redundant, my son starts a new job on Monday morning. At 51 years old he has had great difficulty getting a job so I hope this one goes well for him, I have everything crossed that can be crossed!
I am sharing these cards today instead of tomorrow, because I will be at our get together all day Sunday Yippeeeeee. There will be 7 of us gathering at the lovely Pauline's house for bacon butties, then off to the new Hobbycraft in Derby to have a browse. Back to Pauline's for a light lunch then it's crafting all afternoon before we clear up and off we all go out for dinner before taking our weary but very happy selves off home, what a fabutastic day it is going to be :o)
Anyhow, onto my cards before you all nod off!

I took this photograph at Trent Lock recently, in fact this beautiful Canterbury Bell was in a pot next to the lilies on my little mini cards. The pots were all sitting in front of the Lock House Tearooms.
Of course I used my favourite Papermania textured card to print them onto, and the mat on the first card is from a scrap of Bazzill.
I hope you like them :o)
