Diamond Wedding....

Hi Folks,

Im here today with a Diamond Wedding card the boys Gran asked me to make for friends from her church.
I have used the amazing new dies from Creative Crafting World to make an easel card.  I also went with holographic card as I felt that it sparked like a wee diamond. I completed the creation with a  matching box.

Thanks for dropping by today, Ive not been about as much over the last couple of weeks. Ive felt quite down and my anxiety thing has been playing up a bit with the loss of Jess.

Love and Sparkles,

Hazel xx

My Beautiful Girl...

Hi Everyone,

Im writing this post to let you know that my beloved Messy Jessy (Fluffy Bum) has gained her Angels wings this week. She has been poorly for a couple of weeks but I had to make the heartbreaking decision on Wednesday to have her euthanized. 

She used to appear on my blog when I had Marble the hamster, they were quite the double act!!! 
She did like the craft desk and on occasion was the ultimate critic and would wee on my stash if she didnt like what I was making!!! !
She has left us with a huge gaping  hole in our home as we had her for 18 and a half years.  Our hearts would be totally broken but shes left pawprints all over them to keep them stuck together!!! (Just like when she sat on the drying glue and got a card stuck to her fluffy bum!!!) We have so many happy memories to cherish and look back on.  

Love and Sparkles,

Not my Usual...

Morning Everyone,

Well this post was called not my usual... 2 reasons why.
1. I couldn't think of anything else to write 
 2 these colours arent the sort I usually go for. 

Not sure why I don't pick oranges but I seem to avoid them. I do love the happy colours and they fit right into this season!!! 

I have played with my doily and sentinger dies again. They are the One Day Wonder on Create and Craft on Saturday morning!!!
