Cards and a Photo

Hello Blog friends and followers hope you are all well and enjoying the good weather.  Typical just typical they say it is to end soon.  I hope that was a touch of spring and the next lot will be summer which stays a while.  We need to grab it while we can don`t we!!!
Thank you all for your visits, I had Jean pop in last time. Thank you for that Jean, hope you and the family are well.
Here are another couple of cards I made when I had the Sizzex corner Dies out.

The Flowers and Oak leaf Die are from SW
I don`t know about the other leaf Die.

I have been away this week meeting up with some Blog friends, we did have a horrible upset though.  Our dear, sweet, gentle Diane had a terrible accident which upset us all immensely   Diane flew from Southampton to Newcastle where she meets up with Maureen, they then travel together to the Hotel.  Diane took a very nasty tumble in Newcastle Station, fractured her arm, burst her top lip which has been Micro Stitched also damaged her front teeth.   Diane was released from Hospital and went back to Maureen`s house. Thank goodness Maureen was there with Diane the whole time.  Diane`s husband Julian dropped everything and drove 7 hours to be with her.  Rather than turn to drive the 7 hours back again, Julian drove Diane and Maureen to the hotel where the rooms were booked.  We saw Diane but poor soul was in pain and utterly exhausted, we chatted for a short time and through it all even managed to laugh.  Enough is enough, Diane had to give in and go to bed.  We all had breakfast with Diane and Julian next morning before they took off for their 7 hour journey back home.  We did  a few things but it was just not the same without Diane.  Our next meet up is October so fingers crossed it will go with out any hitches.  Last year in April we were missing Maureen as she had had an accident.  Think we might have to change from April to possibly May!!!!
Here is a photo of us unfortunately without our Diane.

Standing along the back:- Myra, me & Jess.  Front row Barbara, Maureen, Hazel & Margaret.
That`s it for today, sorry its such a long story.
Thank you for your visits and comments  I really do appreciate them.

  1. Hi Patricia your cards are gorgeous. I do like those corner dies. Diane told me all about her accident. She really has been in the wars lately. I hope I can pop in and see her soon. That is a lovely photo of the rest of you. Have a great weekend. Take care. Hugs Jackie

  2. Gorgeous cards and such a shame for Diane, xx

  3. Such pretties Ptricia, the flowers are so pretty and the overlay looks fab in white. Oh your poor friend, what a horrid thing to happen to her. Hope she has a speedy recovery xx

  4. Hi Patricia, So sorry to hear of the unfortunate accident Diane had, it will have definitely put a 'damper' on your meet up, poor Diane I hope she is feeling a little better now. It must have been so upsetting for you all.
    Two gorgeous cards.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  5. Hi Patricia,
    such wonderful cards with those lovely dies.
    Your work is always so pretty and beautifully created.
    So sorry to hear of your friends accident I do hope she is soon out of pain and on the mend.

    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  6. You've made a couple of wonderful cards Patricia!
    I'm so sorry to hear of Diane's accident. She really did come a cropper. She must have very upset not to have her planned fun time with your group of friends. I hope she's quickly on the mend. Fingers crossed that next year is extremely uneventful on the injury front! Debra x

  7. Hi Patricia
    What gorgeous cards, the corner makes a beautiful background to your lovely flowers. Oh you mentioned me, you are kind. I'm so glad we made it across to see you after travelling all that way, even if it was just for a short time. You were all so kind to me, cutting up my food and trying to make that awful sling more comfortable as well as cheering me up and making me laugh even though the stitches hurt. It was good you met Julian too although better circumstances would have been more favourable. Thank you everyone for your kind wishes, fingers crossed I'm mending well and will be back to crafting soon.
    Love Diane xxx

  8. Hello Patricia,

  10. Hello Patricia
    Wow these are two beautiful cards I love those flowers and the corner die is really lovely giving your cards the wow factor once again.
    I agree it was so sad Diane having an accident I just could not believe it when Myra and Barbara told me the news. She was so brave trying to put on a smiling face even though she was in pain. Our Maureen was angel looking after Diane so well.
    With love Margaret xxx

  11. Hello Patricia, beautiful cards as always, such a shame Diane fell, such nasty injuries too, hope she's soon on the mend, it does affect everyone doesn't it, better luck with your next meet up. The family are all well thank you, hope the boys are keeping you busy.
    Live Jean xx

  12. Two beautiful cards Patricia. Thank you for sharing these. Poor Diane. Myra and I were chatting when she got the message from Maureen. Glad she was with Maureen when it happened. She was ace. I think we had al, steer clear of Newcastle Station.

    1. Me again. Sorry didn’t say thanks for the photo. You all look the same as when I first met you all.

  13. Hello Patricia,
    It’s me, late again! I’ve just seen this! Your cards are beautiful! That corner Die is really effective and the flowers are lovely!
    We did have a lovely time but it was marred by what happened to Diane! However we still saw her and met Julian which was lovely. So glad that it wasn’t any worse and that Maureen was there to help!
    As for the photo . I think Brenda may need to go to Specsavers!! Ha ha!
    Love Myra xx
