Busy Afternoon making cards.

Gosh don't know about where you are but it is very windy here in Arbroath today. Its a shame as Jake wanted to go out on his bike but couldn't due to the high winds. I have made 2 cards and an ATC for some challenges so here we go with them.

This is for Tilda and Friends where the challenge was to make an ATC "One for the Boys" Thought Edwin looked like he might like to play on the beach so here he is with his ball.

This one is for the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge where it is Have your Cake and Eat it. Well you can't have a birthday without a cake and wee Candyfloss is holding a really yummy looking one.

This card is done using the sketch from Sketch Saturday and can also be entered into the Lili of the Valley Challenge which is Mothers Day. I didn't use any LOTV stuff on it. Sorry :-((
This is for my Mum to give to Granny for her Mothers Day next week. Gosh time is flying and I really must get mine done too.
Well off to do some housework now. Just feel like I am going round in circles again today. Grrr I have another card to make for my Mum but it is a Sympathy one and I am struggling with it. Sometimes they are so hard to make. Think it is cause I was out at Granny's this morning and am thinking about my Grandad a lot now. Tom said he would be cold in the garden and now I just keep thinking of him. (His ashes are in the garden as it was his pride and joy). It is getting easier as the time goes by but we all still miss him loads. I have stopped reading about poor Jade Goody as it is bringing things back to me about his last few days. Gosh it is 7 months ago but feels like yesterday at times.
Anyway sorry for the moan.
Have a lovely Saturday whatever you are up too.
Love Hazelxox

Love the cards and atc Hazel. Have a good moan when it suits girl. It better out than in. When I have sad thoughts about my mum I always say a little prayer and it helps.

Hi Hazel

Your cards are great, you have been busy. I love the one for your granny, everything goes together so well. I am sure she'll love it.

No need to apologise, it will ease with time and be replaced with happier memories, I am always here.
