Sunday 8 March 2020


 Hi Everyone,
 I hope you are all doing well and have had a lovely weekend. Thank You to everyone who was so lovely about the loss of our Kitty at the end of last week. Your words were so helpful to us.  
 I had a few days of not knowing what to do with a lot of tears as it was such a sudden loss. I now feel really tired but wanted to try and get back to normal. So brushed off the crafty stuff and decided to get creative. 
 Ive made a U fold card for the Butterfly Challenge this fortnight. I decided to get Mums Mothers Day card done. I cant beleive its ion a fortnight!! Time really is flying past!!!

Losing a pet is never fun, they are really part of the family. Emotions can be really tiring.
Fortunately, you have been able to set your sights on creating this beautiful card.

Oh Hazel this is so beautiful. Love the botanical type papers you have used and the gorgeous colour scheme. All works so perfectly. Caught a bit of Cruffs but when they bark so does my wee dog Squirt lol.

Gorgeous card Hazel! Everything works so well together and I'm sure your mum will love it. I have not seen this fold before, does it fold flat for posting? Good luck with the big tidy. Hugs Christine x

It’s beautiful Hazel. I do love graphic 45 paper. I only have one pad which comes out, gets stroked and then put away again !! So pleased to see you have used your prize on your card. Thankyou for coming and spinning the butterfly wheel with me. Hugs Mrs A.
