" JUST BECAUSE"    This is a very plain simple card to let my friends husband, Tammy God father know we are all thinking of him as he starts his chemo on Wednesday.  He had his radiotherpy before his operation for Bowel Cancer which he has had a few hiccups along the way, but is now making good progress.   He has a long road still to go with his chemo, but with positive thoughts he will be ok.     He is cheerful and in a good frame of mind so he will be fine. 

This is 7x7 card that I have just cut a frame and put over the checked card, added the sentiment and a few buttons to take the plainness away.  
I have made one for my friend which I will show another day!  
 I haven't been working apart from one one last week which worked in my favour as I ended up with a water infection, thankfully the doctor gave we antibiotics so I am fine again. A day or two feeling as if my energy had gone walk abouts.  

Thank you for all your comments on my wedding card.
To think I was just playing to see what it would look like, I am sometimes better doing that than having to make one to a theme.

Have a good day, what ever you may be doing, I am only doing pick up today, I am enjoying these odd few hours now and again.

  3. Great card hazel and perfect for a guy, hoping all continues well for him on his journey back to full health, hugs Carole Z X

  4. Fantastic male card and perfect sentiment for what he is going through - sometimes you just can't fnd the words but as long as they know you are there for them that means far more than any words - hope all goes well for him and glad to hear your on the mend too - water infections are not nice but it sounds as though you caught it early enough - take care xx GailT xx

  5. Good Morning Hazel, super card for a man and I hope all goes well for him, horrible treatment but I hope it does the trick.
    Poor you having that infection, hope you are OK now, hugs Kate x

  6. Morning Hazel, I hope you had a good weekend.
    I hope Tammy's Godfathers treatment goes well and he makes a full recovery.
    As for your card, I'm CAS all the way just now too, can't beat it!
    I don't think you can ever go wrong with a bit of tartan, or plaid especially for men. Just perfect for the occasion.

    Hugs Erika. x

  7. Hi Hazel,
    perfect creation for the occasion.
    Love the fab design.
    I do hope all goes well with his treatment, and op.
    My Brother in Law had a similar op many years ago, and is fine now.

    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  8. Hiya Hazel. So glad you are feeling better now and feeling upto making this lovely card. Men's cards must be at the number 1 spot in every craft room across the globe for being the most awkward to make ! But you've done it. What a lovely thought and Im sure he will appreciate it and will have it by his side on those bad days he's sure to have.
    Keeping fingers crossed that all goes as well as chemo can.
    Have a lovely Monday.

  9. Hi Hazel,
    Perfect card for the occasion. I do like quite plain cards as well as fancy ones. They all have their place in the scheme of things and I hope your friend's husband comes through his treatment with the all clear.
