Good morning.   I hope you are all safe and no storm damage.  We are ok, but OMG! We had it bad over night, and we are on the east coast!    I hate to think how those on the west have faired?

Thank you for your comments on my 50th card.  I do love reading them all.  Today is a card I made for Andrew grandson to give to one of his many girl friends at school.  Lexi  sent Andrew two invites for her party, and when Tammy asked her dad was one meant for someone else? The answer was NO! She wanted to make sure he would come.    He went but decided girls party's are not fun.  Oh how that might change???

I made this card with a LOTV image ( which I discovered yesterday they have discontinued the coloured art pads back in January) I hope they replace them with something else.  Apart from that the other bits came from my bit box.  The special friend die cut I used from another scrap of the back ground paper, the heart was from the box I put spare die cuts into. How many times do we cut something out then think NO! That's not going to work, so in it goes to the box.  The little plastic flowers were from a bag of buttons they I got when I was making pendants and button necklaces.

Nothing going on here todsy, it's s case of staying in and keeping warm and safe.  I hope you do the same.

  2. Hi Hazel, yes windy here too in kent, but luckily all in once piece still. I didn't know LOTV were discontinuing the pads. I've bought quite a few over the years and they are perfect to use. Love the card today. It's nice to use up bits....though i tend to throw mine away after a while, as i get fed up with looking at them all the time and then never finding anything i want. Janice xx

  3. Hi Hazel, lovely card, and pretty embellishments too. Amused by Andrew's take on the girlie party, Kate x

  4. Your tales of your Grandsons do make me laugh Hazel, his time will come!! Our eldest always had a string of girls in waiting but our youngest has always had a "plan" which in his 21st year included finding his first proper girlfriend, which he achieved and he has now been with Laura for nearly a year!! Love this pretty card, the image is delightful and the paper is such a perfect match. Stay warm xx

  5. Hi Hazel, I'm loving the comment from Andrews Grandson about girls parties. I've had similar here, LOL. Girls! Give it 10 years. ;)
    A perfect card for the occasion, I love the cute LOTV image.

    Hope all is well with you?

    Hugs Erika. x

  6. Hello Hazel,
    Love your card today. Those LOTV images are so lovely, it's a shame they've discontinued the pads.
    Laughed at Andrew's take on girls' parties. Eleanor said the same about the boy's party she was invited to. Too loud and rough - give them both a few more years!!!

  8. cute make - this is very lovely Hazel. The weather here has been very rough - probably not as bad as you're having it though xx

  9. Hi Hazel, Had a look at your previous makes and I love them all. This card is so cute! Such a shame the LOTV finishing with their art pads, they are so useful to have for a quick card. Hope you are ok and you get some sunshine soon.
    warm hugs from a friend full of a cold, Maria xxx

  10. Hi Hazel,
    so glad you had no damage from the storm.
    We were luckier down south as we only saw some slight wind and nothing as severe as you.
    Great card, and such a very lovely image image too.
    Thanks for the info on the LOTV pads.
    I can't believe they have stopped selling them as they seemed so popular, and very lovely.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  11. Hello Hazel,
    A really lovely card! Just right for the age group too. This is what LOTV did so well. I'm so sorry they are discontinuing the pads.
    Boys are funny! Mind you girls are too!!
    Hope you feel better very soon.
    Love Myra xxx

  12. A really lovely card Hazel love the colours you have chosen too.
    Boys will be boys but give them a few more years!

  13. Another real cutie. Love the colors & all the little embellies that dress up this little sweetie pie. Caught a glimpse of something interesting in your earlier post, so off to see what that is! Stay safe, warm & dry. Hugs &TFS
