Good morning, sorry I haven't been around much and have not blogged for over a week.  I had time off work while the family were away skiing.  So I decided I would just take some time out too.  I have been doing things in the house ie kitchen cupboards, wardrobe and drawer clearing things like that.  Going and meeting up with Patricia and meeting friends.  It was so nice not to clock watch.  
I should be back into work today, but mummy is at home and the girls are having a quiet day so I am not needed.  I am fine with that as this is what I wanted when I stepped back. 

It was Beths birthday on Friday, I was intending to do a photo frame up for her, but due to husband buying a new printer and I haven't worked out how it works and he isn't in the mood to show or help me with my project it will have to wait for another day?   Her card is made up with some of the die cuts I was to use on her frame.   Horses being one of her loves and what she choose for her invites I thought I'd use them to look like they were racing.    Just a very easy put together card. 

Dot folder.    :-     Embossalicious 
Horse heads  :-     Marianna designs createables animals 
Border die.    : -    Perseus from the Gemini collection
Stamp.        .  :-     Justrite
Flowers.        :-      Bought ones 

The other thing I have been busy with is making the wedding invites for Gillians friend.   They are all cut and ready for Alice to come to make her mind up as to what she wants me to put on her insert.  Once she does that it will be all go to get them made up.  

Thank you for all your lovely comment on my card.   I love seeing what I can do with a die.  The more uses the more value for money.   

Right off to get a wash on and get some housework done, might get some crafting done later.   

Take care.

  1. Knowing her love of horses I'm sure Beth absolutely loved this card Hazel. Oh how I dislike technology! Luckily for me John is very good with it all so he is my go-to guy when things go wrong. Hugs Christine xx

  2. Brilliant card which will be loved and treasured.
    Glad you have another day to yourself.
    Me!! I just have to struggle on with Technology and it is a BIG struggle. John does not have clue, he can switch the computer on now, there's an improvement.
    Have a great day

  11. Hi Hazel,
    This is really, really fab and perfect for a horse lover. I bet Beth loves it.
    George wouldn't know where to start with a printer, he can't even switch on the computer so I have to rely on my daughter for the technical stuff!

  12. Perfect for a horse lover Very classy and very feminine without being too slushy for a growing young lady

  13. Hi Hazel,
    what a really fab card, and just right for a person that has a horse or pony.
    A very Happy belated Birthday to Beth.
    My 2 Grand Children no longer have their ponies, as they have grown out of competing, and the ponies were not being bothered with so they were sold.
    My Grandson has a IT apprenticeship at Canary Wharf in London, so hasn't much time to do such things now, and my Granddaughter is studying for her A levels.
    Just hope Beth keeps her interest going.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
