Good morning everyone.   Well the last day of 2014.    I have to say it seems to have been a very quick year, I know that sound stupid and oh many years ago when A person of many years of age would say to me " you wait till you get older your will feel the same".  Now my words were " oh yes" I don't think so?   How wrong was I!!!   We are ending our year with the forth coming happy event that will take place in the summer. Our daughter Gillian will get married.  This time last year it wasn't even a thought, yes Gillian had meet Andrew but just.   We are so happy for them both.

While making Andrew and Gillians card, I was half way through making a wedding card that Tammy had asked me to make, but on see the design of A&Gs one Tammy asked if she could change her mind.
So it is on the same design but different.   The in structions were they like black, don't do frills.
This is what I came up with. YES that striplet was used again.


It's an 8x8 card, embossed with a folder that is a Spellbinders one but I don't know the name, it's pretty with all the hearts.   The papers are from my First Eddition Noir et Chic pad, for those who have this pad you will know that the black is lovely.   It's special with those sparkly bits through it, and I felt was just right for a special day card. Ribbon for tieing the gift walket is from stash.

I just hope the couple like it, I know Tammy was very pleased she asked for the change in design.

Well I am off to do some housework, now I won't be running around deep cleaning or anything like that  just because tradition says one must deep clean ones house before the New Year comes in.  Well I am sorry that's not going to happen in this house as I am off to work soon and two life is to short for that in my books these days.

So what ever you are doing this New Year's Eve please take extra care.   It just remains for me to wish each and every one of you.

                                    A HAPPY NEW YEAR AND I HOPE 2015 WILL BRING YOU ALL
                                               GOOD  HEALTH AND HAPPINESS.

  2. Hi Hazel

    Beautiful card and wallet, I'm sure the lucky couple will love it. Thank you for all your help and encouraging words for Claire and Anthea. Anthea came down over Christmas, and she looked so well and everything seems to be moving in the right direction, she has a bit of a limp as some nerves were damaged and she's not sure if they will ever repair, but like she said she can live with that. Thank you again Hazel.

    With love and hugs I wish you charlie and your family a Happy & Healthy 2015
