"Pearls & Bows"

Good Morning welcome to my Blog.  So glad you have stopped by, I hope you will stay a while, if you have time please leave a message so that I know you were here.
Hazel took two leaps forward yesterday.  She went to see her Consutalnt who she has been under during her Operation and Treatments and got a good report.  She has not to go back for 6 months, I am so happy.  She also started back at work full time yesterday.  Hazel is a Professional Nanny to two girls 10 and 8.  She is at their house every morning at 7.15am to let the parents get off to work.  They are both Medical Consultants one in Edinburgh and the other in Dundee.  Although Hazel gets  3-4 hours off in the middle of the day some evenings she does not get home till 7pm. she takes these girls to their activities and feeds them.  If one of the parent is home early Hazel gets away but they are both so busy it is not always possible for them to be home that early.
 Nothing much happening here today, mind you it is still early so you never know what might happen.
Got all the cleaning bang up to date yesterday, had all afternoon to myself so made this card.
I craft in the kitchen, when I was finished you would never have known I spent time so much time earlier cleaning the floor.............the joys of being a crafter!!!!

Base card 8 X 6 Centura Pearl card from Crafters Companion
Pale pink Co-ordinations also from Crafters Companion
Backing paper a Nit Wit download that was in my Bit Box
1/2 a Marianne's Die cut Doily that was also in the box
I cut 2 Spellbinder Hearts/Baubles the large one in the pale pink Co-ordinations
Medium one from a piece of cream card
Flower made using Spellbinder Blossom Five Die
Leaves Spellbinder Foliage Die
Pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts

Did you know that Crafters Companion have their Birthday Sale on??  I got some more of the Co-ordinations card stock I really like it.  I kept saying I did not need it BUT!! it really was a bargain.  I got two for the price of one and my discount, delivered P&P Free what more could you ask for??

That`s it for today
Thank you for popping in I really appreciate you calling in
