Good afternoon everyone and thank you for calling in to see what I have been up to!   Well I certainly haven't been doing much crafting, by the time I have been getting home from work last week had tea it was to late to start doing anything.   Plus I spent lots of time decluttering Anna's bedroom.  Erika ( Snappycrafts)  always goes on about putting her mountaineering gear on to attack her ironing pile, well believe you me I needed mine on to tackle the mountain of  junk and rubbish in Anna's room. Oh why do they want to keep all those things they like to keep???  Anyway her room WAS all tidy and hoovered to an inch of its life when I left on Friday, BUT I won't expect to see it like that tomorrow.
The other thing I had to do last week was go out with Beth while she  exercised her Shetland pony, he is entered into the "Shetland Pony Grand National at the Pony Club"soon, so he is in training according to Beth, Anna usual does this with her.

Note the" Goggles" all jockeys wear goggles - Beth's words.

My card today is for Tammy my youngest daughter  Godmothers granddaughter, ( oh that was a mouth full) Jessica has to go through a lot of tests as she suffers from Crohn's  disease, she takes it all in her stride and is only 11. So I sent her this card.

Sorry for the shadows around the bow, but no matter what I did there was a shadow.  An LOTV image,  embossed my prefolded card and added a little bow, nothing fancy. 
Off now to get the washing in, I do love when I can get it out to dry, will get it ironed later.
It's back to work tomorrow, and before I know it it will be Friday again, the weeks are just flying by.
Take care and thank you for all your lovely comments.

  4. Beautiful card Hazel. I do love the LOTV images. Like you I love getting washing outside to dry and then get it ironed and put away. It's been glorious sunshine for us today and it makes such a difference. Hugs Rita xxx

  5. Such a sweet card and cute image. I hate ironing but if I can get the clothes washed, dried and ironed as I bring them in off the washing line it doesn't seem to be a problem Unfortunately with the weather we have been having it doesn't work like that too often. The longer it lies around the bigger chore it becomes!! Hugs Christine xx

  10. TFS the picture of your happy little charge galloping away on her pony. You can tell she is having a fun time. Loved your pretty card too. Delightfully cute LOTV image, and your embossing folder made it just perfect. Crohns disease is a difficult thing for anyone to deal with...even more so with a youngster. Hope she gets through all the tests ok, and I'm sure this card will cheer her lots. TFS & Hugs

  20. Hi Hazel

    What a lovely card I am sure Tammy loved it. Such a shame she is having to go through so much.

    Loving the embossing folder you have used.

    Have a great weekend.

    Love Jules xx

  21. Hi Hazel,
    what a lovely picture of the the young lady on her pony.
    I love your super card. Great LOTV image. Fab embossing too.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  22. I've just popped over after your lovely comment on my card Hazel - this card is so beautiful. My two favourite images are House Mouse and LOTV!!! This is such a nice embossing folder as well and goes beautifully with the image.

    I sympathise with you having to type with a little black kitten trying to help - but you just have to grin and bear it don't you??? LOL.

    Hugs to you Sue Pxxx
