THINKING OF YOU CARD







Good afternoon, I hope you are all well, and enjoying a relaxing afternoon?   It's turned out to be a nice day here, thank goodness as over night we had some terrible down pours.

Today's card I made for Andrew, Gillian's partners step mum, Margaret had another Stoke a couple of weeks ago, I didn't want to put " Get Well" as she isn't really ill just incapacitated by her Stoke, she is getting there, and hopefully they will transfer her to our local cottage hospital, which will make it easier for Andrews dad to visit each day, he has to rely on Andrew or his sister taking him to Dundee.

Thank you for you lovely comments about Rebecca's card, she did like it, and thankfully she liked the clothes we had given her, and of course the extra gift of money.  Little LAUREN was funny, she is just starting school after the summer, but can count money very well, telling Rebecca that she still has much more than her. Oh aren't sisters just so nice to one another???

Patricia and I had a lovely meal out in Edinburgh last night with Gillian and her friends, they are a great bunch and it was lovely to see, some who went to college with her over 23 years ago, they have matured since then but the friendship is still as strong.  Yes a great night had by all. Next it's the wedding, it will be here before we know it.  This week it's going and getting Charlie fitted for his kilt, we are just hiring, it will be lovely seeing the men all dressed in their outfits.

8x8 pre folded card
Regal striplet by Sue Wilson
Butterfly by Sue Wilson
Wild Rose corner die
All the coloured card is from my bit box.

I bought the Wild Rose die a few weeks ago and just used it, cut beautifully, do like others in this range.

Off now to just relax, for how long? Well that's another matter, I do have a basket of ironing that's shouting to be done.

  7. So very lovely! It's a perfect card for your purpose, letting the recipient know she is in your thoughts. The color combo is very serene & calming, and of course I love these SW dies, you've used so beautifully. Could be used for many occasions, but especially nice for the one you have in mind. TFS & Hugs (and so glad you & Patricia got to enjoy a nice meal too).

  13. Hello Hazel,
    This is a little stunner. I am sure Margaret will love it, and as you say sometimes Get Well Soon, just doesn't cover the occasion. I love the colour scheme too.

  20. Hi Hazel

    A beautiful card and gorgeous colours too .. .. I hope it cheers Margaret up and that she continues to improve. Strokes are such scary things aren't they!

    You have been making some beautiful things for your blog. I have been having a much needed catch up. Life has been super busy wedding wise and left me with hardly any time for blog posting and visiting. But thank you for your visits and comments - I do appreciate them.

    Hope you are having a good weekend.

    Love Jules xx

  21. Hello there Hazel - I just popped over to see what you've been up to and apart from this gorgeous card, it sounds as if you, Patricia and Gillian have had a lovely time recently. Now for the card, well this is so beautiful and the colours are totally up my street! I've even just (sorry the maestro has) bought a new iron in purple. Now for someone who hates ironing it doesn't seem so bad now! Big hugs to you. Sue Pxxx

    1. Me again - both of the two cats adopted us - I think the sign over the door that says 'Cat Cafe' had something to do with it! Then again it could have been the 'mug' tattoos we have on our foreheads. Wouldn't be without them though. As for the iron - no it's not a steam generated one but it is nice and light (for my dodgy wrist) and does have a powerful shot of steam!! LOL. Hugs again. xxxx
