Good afternoon from a very wet east coast of Scotland.    Lights are on in the house as it's so dark. It makes for a long day.   Thank you for all your lovely comments on June my friends little knits.
Sorry I have not posted anything since I put up the little cardigans to let Ita see them.   June my friend and Tammy's god mother is in her 70s and she is never with out something on her knitting needles.   As I said I buy these little knits from her for my baskets, I do think she some how thinks I sell lots of baskets each week, as she keeps sending me parcels, if only that was the case!!.,  Any way I have been a bit lazy, now it's not because I am busy at work. In fact I haven't been busy at all, new house keeper survived her first week - me I don't know what to do with myself, not use to not having any thing to do, plus mummy has been taking the girls to school, well Anna to get her lift and Beth to school so I have been mainly doing pick ups.  It will take me a bit of time to get use to it all.  You would think I would be doing lots of crafting, but just can't get into it.

To days card is an order from Tammy, this is for her friend.

A very CAS card, using Sue Wilson's Salzburg collection and her Filigree 3D bows.  Plus a couple of flat backed pearls from stash.

Well that's it for today, I am going to do some ironing not a lot but will become a lot if I leave it.

    Hazel we all need to take things easy sometimes, and just have some me time and to relax and obviously you have needed this so don't you worry.
    Special hugs for you, you sound in need, so take plenty.

  2. Gorgeous card and luv the colour combo xx it sounds as though are a bit at a loose end - not quite knowing what to do and then before you know it the day has gone - if you are like me I feel a little guilty if I craft in the day so usually craft at night - crazy I know but because it's a hobby i don't feel it should impact on my daily work!!! How daft am I xx I'm sure you will settle into a new routine and then you will wonder how you ever fitted it all in xx Take care xx GailT xx

  3. Lovely card Hazel. I bought this die when it first came out but have yet to use it. Shame on me! Hugs Christine xx

  4. Beautiful card Hazel and I love the colour, so fresh.

    Love & Hugs

  5. Hazel, I think this ennui must be something going around. Know I've had it for weeks now. Enjoy a bit of down time if it's coming your way because I'll bet it will soon be over. In the meantime, you've created a magnificent card with the SW dies (spotted that one as soon as it scrolled up!). Very elegant with the crisp detailing in the white with the soft blue accents. Don't have the bowtie, but after seeing how you've used it, it's going on my wish list. This is just beautiful. TFS & have a good week. We started with some rain. At least nothing white falling. Hugs

  6. What a gorgeous card Hazel, there is something about turquoise and white, it always looks so crisp. Make the most of this quite spell, it won't last too much longer with Christmas looming!! xx
