Well I was going to say good evening but it's far from that here in Fife, it's pouring with rain and very cold. Now yesterday was beautiful with the temp of 19c today 5.5c big difference.
Thank you for all your comments on my last card and as promised I am showing you the one I made from the left over bits.

As I said I have made this from the bits that was left over, plus I added an extra die cut another one borrowed from Patricia, some ribbon and a pearl from my stash. Very simple but I feel it's effective.  

Now as you all know Beth was wanting to try her hand at "Horse Vaulting" well it's not a great photo but this is Beth on the back of a very big 16.3hand horse, after half an hour, if I knew  how to get the little video up on here that I took it would show you her balancing on one knee.  They did ask if she had done it before - answer NO.  But she loved every minute had a smile on her face from ear to ear. So it looks like this will be what we will be doing every Wednesday. 
Been a long day I had to be in for 7 am today and got home at 6.35pm and didn't get the time off  in between that I thought I would, to much to do. Another long day tomorrow so I am having an early night.

  1. Gosh that is a long day with no break as you had thought. Put your feet up tonight Hazel. This card is lovely using the negative from your previous card. I have that die - it is a Marianne Creatables die, but they only have numbers, not names. It looks so effective. Must remember to try something like this. Hugs Christine xx

  3. Beautiful card Hazel, just love it. Great piccie of your Gran daughter on the horse I remember when my daughter used to go horse riding as a child and they had to turn round on the horse a complete 360 whilst the horse was moving, kids love it as they have no fear. Now you can get some rest Hazel after a very busy day.

    Love & Hugs
