Good evening.  Just taking 5 mins off to put my feet up and write this post.  I am looking after grandsons, have been since Thursday. Mum and dad will be back tomorrow.

The worrying thing is they are at a rock festival and after the terrible  atrocities of Paris you start to think that could have so easily at their one seeing how over 2,000 were there last night.   Tammy phoned so it helped, I knew they were ok but I just needed to hear her voice

To night I have a card I made for a friends birthday, very simple using Sue Wilson's  butterfly die, heart felt aster die and a border embossing folder.  The pink pearlised card is from Anna Marie card.

Thank you for all your lovely words about Patricia and I helping to raise the money to keep the tea trolley stocked at the chemo unit.  Just a small way of saying thank you.

Better get back to doing things, like ironing.  Tammy is coming home to hopefully an empty basket. Mine is going to be full when I get home.

  15. Hi Hazel,
    what a wonderful card and very beautiful butterfly too.
    Lovely design and wonderful colour.
    I know what you mean about worrying.
    My Son goes to France on a work thing on Wednesday, and I am starting to worry already.
    Sorry I didn't comment on your post about the chemo unit, but it's bit too close to home at the mo, and it's not good news either, but you 2 sisters are such good fundraisers for a very worthwhile charity.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  16. Lovely card Hazel. Hope you are sitting with your feet up today now you are bavk at home.

  17. Hello Hazel Wow beautiful card & yes I love that butterfly well I would wouldn't I. It's so worrying glad Tammy rang you.My Daughter & SIL was in Paris the weekend before the terrible shootings I was so glad it wasn't last weekend.

  18. So happy for you that your kids were ok at the concert. It is a big worry & for us in the USA too. Everytime we go someplace where there's a crowd, you can't help but think "what if...". That is a shame the world has to live with this fear because of some radical fanatics. Love your elegant card. The white SW lovely looks grand against that rich burgundy, and the embossing in the lower corner is so pretty. TFS

  19. It is worrying Hazel when you just don't feel safe no matter where you go, very sad.
    A beautiful CAS card, I love that butterfly die, just perfect.

    Hugs Erika. x
