Good afternoon.   Firstly thank you for all your lovely comments on the  " PONY CLUB " board.  The girls are thrilled with them all, here's hoping the judges like what they have done!!!   I will let you all know next week.
I have enjoyed my time off it's been good just doing what I want to do with on clock watching?
For Mother's Day my youngest daughter Tammy and husband gave me a gift voucher for our lovely local craft shop with the instruction I had to buy a very pretty die as part of it. So I did and this is one of the cards I made.

It is black and pink, but I think it's looking more brown and black card is from my Noir et Chic 12x12 pad, the pink I think is from a packet of 160 gm.  Black ribbon and gems from stash.
I bought one of the Sue Wilson Spanish collection ( Granada)  and I already had the bow die.  Now I have to say the Granada die cut beautifully and I enjoyed using it.

Well I am off to collect daughters elderly cat and take him to the vets he's not very well and old age isn't helping, ( he has a water infection )  he such a sweet old man.
So that's all for today hope you are all well and if not here are some (((((hugs)))))

  8. Hi Hazel
    Very dramatic with the black and pink but I love it. The Granada die looks very nice. I'm still having an affair with the Striplet at the moment
    The First Edition pads are my faves and I've been lucky to pick up some in the sale at work.
    Hope your leg is better and that you are getting some rest.
    Best wishes.
