"Just a Note"

 Good Morning Blog friends, well here we are again at the weekend, can someone please tell me where the week went!!  
Thank you for taking time to pop in,  I love having you here.

Had a good old "Chin Wag" with Hazel yesterday.   Hazel conquered yet another hurdle yesterday................. she actually came without her wig.  Her hair has grown fantastically since our holiday, it is still very short but she looked great.  I know she is my wee sister, I have told you all how brave she has been but there she goes again, Hazel I salute you once more, you are a Star.
Had the boys for tea yesterday, they love when their Grandpa picks them up from school, busy, busy here from the minute they step through the door.  My friend Elaine who usually comes Thursday came last night.  She had been away all week, said she could not miss our "Crafty" evening.  Crafty evening!! we do more Chatting than Crafting, we did some crafting last week the first for ages, we certainly always have a good laugh.

Today`s card some of you might have seen, one eagle eyed follower spotted it in this months Making Cards Magazine.   I have entered 3 cards in the past couple of years, 2 have made "Star Card" and I have had £50 of Hobbycraft vouchers.  This one did not make that but was shown.  The flowers are a bit flat and crushed but I thought I would show it anyway.

Base card 8 x 8 from Joanna Sheen
All the papers are from the Magazine matted onto pink card stock
Spellbinder Fancy Ovals Die for the center piece
Classic Circle Die to cut out the printed sentiment also from the magazine
Flowers and leaves are made using Crealies Dies from Joanna Sheen
Tiny Butterflies a punch

That`s it for today
Thank you for visiting I really do appreciate you taking time call by

  1. Hi Patricia, I wonder who that eagle eyed follower was? Me maybe, it was so nice opening the mag and being able to relate to someone whose card was shown. Beautiful card even though you say it is a bit worse for wear, no wonder it was chosen.

    It's nice to have a day out with a sister, I am close to mine too and we enjoy a day together. Hazel my set a trend with her hairstyle, tell her to just flaunt it.

    Take care.

  4. Good Morning Patricia,
    A very pretty card, you make lovely flower arrangements, I am not surprised you get 'Star Cards' you should sumbit more, as they are beautiful. Really.
    My friend Karen lost her hair through treatment, it didn't grow back properly, she now sports a really, really close shaved cut, it suits her, I shaved my own head with the dog clippers to relate to how she must have felt, did she laugh or what!!!!!
    Wishing you all well.

  5. Great card Patricia. I must look at crealies dies. I don't have any but I do like that elongated leaf spray, and looking at the cost they are not too expensive. Glad you and Hazel had a good time. Congratulations Hazel on that milestone. That first appearance must be quite frightening I would guess - as well as quite liberating! My friend looked great with her very short hair - and very strangely it was curly and she has had never had curly hair in her life! Have a good day. Christine x

  6. Hi Patricia, I can see why you would have been published this card is gorgeous, I love the layout and the shades of pink are just beautiful. Well done Hazel, yes she is very brave, pleased you had a lovely time with her, and isn't it good to have friends that you can rally laugh with, it makes the heart sing, have a good day, kate x
