Chocolates are always the right thing!

The last time I gave somebody a chocolate to say thank you and covered it like this, it was a hit, so I thought why change a winning recipe?
The rose was coloured with my Copics and then painted with making memories glitter glue. Paper is the last piece I had in my leftover boxand ribbons are from my stash. Hope you like it.
I had a pretty busy few days. I went to my uncle's funeral on Friday and although it was very sad, it was also nice to spend some time with my family that I don't often see. Found out that my cousin, who is 45, and his wife are finally being blessed with a baby.
Yesterday we celebrated my eldest daughter's 30th birthday and she finally got engaged to William. I am so happy about that. He is the perfect partner for her, he spoils her rotten and puts up with all her dramas and insecurities. What more could a mother ask for in a son in law?
It was also the semi-finals of the super 14 rugby and my team, the Blue Bulls won!!!! Now all I need is to get my hands on some tickets for the final next week! They are going to be almost impossible to get. People have been camping out at the stadium since yesterday after the match, but my DH said that he would try to get some tomorrow as soon as tickets go on sale, so please hold thumbs that he gets some!
