Christmastime 2022...


Hi Everyone,

I hope this blog post finds you all well. Its been so long since I last used my blog and I had forgotten how to do things, so this post has taken a while to do!!! 

I thought I would come on and share one of my very few festive creations with you all. 
Ive not been crafting very much so I have only made a couple of festive cards. This is one of them. Its so sparkly and pretty I just wanted to share it.
Life and illness has really got in the way of crafting this year!!! Heres hoping 2023 is much more creative!!! 
I have just got a huge kallax unit from Ikea so everything in the craft room is in a real guddle!! Its guess where I put everything when I go to craft!!! Silly fibro brain fog makes me forget stuff lots just now!!! 
Ive also got a new little helper!!!! Or hindrance!!!!! Meet Teddy!!!
Teddy moved in in May. 
My beautiful Baby Belle pupper passed away in March after a brave battle with nasal cancer. 
Heres a wee pic of him just after he arrived. Hes a miniature Jack Russell. Hes not that much smaller than Belle was, about an inch littler. Still full of puppy naughty times!!! He will be 9 months old next week.  
What a cutie!! Shame he hated sleeping on his own to begin with!!! 

Anyways on to where I got my card items from...

Off White Cardstock from Amazon.
Red Mirri Card
Crafts U Print Scan and Cut File
Modge Podge Glitter Effect on the flowers.
Pearls from stash

Hope you all have a lovely festive season,

Love Hazel xx

Hell Hazel and welcome back to blogland and with such a stunning creation, it's amazing.
I did wonder where you were and I remembered that one of your sons was unwell a while back. It's lovely to see you back but sorry to hear that illness contributed to your disappearance. I hope you and your family are much better now, take care, hugs Kate x

Hazel, this is gorgeous! I saw it on Krafty Chicks where I am a Guest Designer for the month of December. I'm sorry you have not been well, but so glad you were to get back in the ring! Does this card fold? or does it lay flat for mailing? If you consider it a fancy fold, I would urge you to consider entering it in the Creative Creases #47 challenge which runs until 1/4/23.

Yay, Hazel! Thank you for entering your beauty in the Creative Creases Challenge!!

WOW! Hazel, you are back in your craft room and as creative as ever! I just love everything about this fun fold, which appears to me to be an easel card. It's stunning! Your little friend will be keeping you busy and fill your heart with love, for sure. Thank you for playing at Creative Creases Challenge and hope you can join in again soon. Happy Holidays!
