Well we are in to another weekend, and the weather hasn't been to good up until a few hours ago.   Heating was on as it was so cold, damp and miserable.   A ray of sunshine did come this morning when the Postman handed me a package that contained the most stunningly beautiful card.    Now I don't know how to link to others blogs that easily so I if you go across to    Http//   you will see my beautiful gift.  Tina makes the most amazing cards.

Now my card to day was asked for along with the baby basket and birth congratulation card, this was for the couples 15 month old little boy.  So I used a LOTV little boy image which I thought just fitted the bill.

Just a very plain simple card.

I am having a lazy day.  One of those days you have loads to do but just can't be bothered doing things.  I will regret it tomorrow, but I will just have to get on with it as I will be back at work Monday.  The girls are off on half term as from Friday and so am I.  So I will be busy making sure everything is up to date.  I am cutting back on what I do at work but just can't leave things as they are. . A housekeeper is going to be employed, I will be there just for the girls - no ironing or room cleaning for me. Now how happy am I??? Oh yes very.....

Thank you for your comments on my "oldie". Oh yes I have been well roped in by the out of school club, but if the school raise funds from the them making and selling boxes and gift bags at the Christmas Fair then it will be worth the little bit of my time. 

Take care.

  11. How sweet Hazel and what a lovely idea to give to the "Big Brother". I had a peep at the card you received...what a beauty, and coordinated to the flowers you sent too!! Blog land truly is a place of kindness xx

  12. Hi Hazel what a lovely idea to give the new brother a card, and such a lovely one too! Great news about the housekeeper it always sounds like you have so much to do so this should come as a big relief for you. Susan x

  13. Hi Hazel :-) this is such a lovely card and how special to receive a big brother card. I would also like to Thank both you and Patricia for the beautiful lace that I received from you both. I was so touched by your kindness. The bag was amazing too and mum ( Rita) certainly had an amazing day with you all

  14. Hi Hazel, what a lovely idea for this card and such a beautiful result I too like the LOTV images they are so sweet. Welcome to the club, I too am the proud owner of a Tina card, I know just how you felt when you opened the parcel, absolute disbelief and wonder at such a beautiful work of art, I do hope it brings you as much pleasure and inspiration as mine does.

  15. This is such a sweet image, and what a lovely thing to do for a big brother of a new baby (who is going to be getting all the attention, so what a nice way to include the other child). It's an adorable card with everything you've done to make it so cute. If you provide your email add, I can explain how to do the linking. I have moderate comments on, so only I will see your info. Be happy to help if I can. It's not difficult. TFS & glad your weather improved. We went from summer to winter - overnight it seems! Hugs.

  16. Just pasted your link info & visited Tina's lovely blog & cards. Would join as a follower there, but don't see a place to do so. TFS the link info. She does stunning cards! (just like you & your sister!) Hugs

  17. Hi Hazel,
    beautiful boy card.
    I love that cute image it's so perfect, and wonderful for the occasion, and specially with one of your lovely baskets.
    It is quite easy to link a blog to yours.
    I will email you and explain.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  18. HI Hazel, a lovely card for a boy, such a cute image, hugs Carole Z X

  19. Hi Hazel I had a day like that yesterday after being at work all week...sometimes it just has to be done but I agree you always regret it the day after.!
    Looking forwards to some quality time in the tattie holidays too.
    Super card, I love the cute little baby boy, less is more in my books. x

    Hugs Erika. x
