Happy New Year...

 Hi Everyone,

I have been meaning to do this post for almost a week now!!! Where do the days go???

Wishing Everyone a lovely 2022. I hope that it brings you all happiness and joy.

I am still not really making cards and stuff much. As if 2021 wasnt hard enough with Toms heart issues and hospital stay (see post below) my best furry friend in the whole world was diagnosed with nasal cancer on the 29th December. 

Im spending as much time with Belle as I can before the unimaginable happens. 
I did think that after all Toms trauma that 2021 couldn't get worse but it certainly did!!! 

Fezziwigs will still be on hold until things start to settle. I really struggled for festive cards this season and eventually bought some from The British Heart Foundations Shop in our town. I have used their website a fair few times over the last couple of months so felt it was a good trade for hand made makes.  

Ive been looking back at old pics of Belle and found this one the other day. It made me laugh lots. She certainly has been the perfect dog. Mind you 5 minutes after this pic was taken she had eaten half the book!!! 
Stay safe wherever you are,

Love Hazel xx
