Lorraine's Challenge card from 2 weeks ago
Lorraine's challenge card from last week
Good Morning Ladies,
I am so happy to say that Lorraine and I sorted our lines of communication out, so that I was able to receive these amazing cards that Lorraine had made for our last two challenges, I have to say I was over the moon to see that you had taken the time to take part in the challenges despite feeling so exhausted and poorly.
I promise you that I will make time and space to share any challenge card that you make, it doesn't matter if you can't make the card in time for me to upload on the Sunday, if you go to the trouble I will always share it, I know and totally understand how hard it is to meet deadlines when 'life and your health don't work with you'!!
Your first card is so pretty, the papers you have used are so bright and vibrant, the contrasting plain papers all match perfectly too, the mixture of adhesive gems you have used is pure genius, a fantastic way of matching the colours in your theme and using up those last few gems in different colours! That pretty pearl trimmed edging yoiu have used finishes your card perfectly!
Your Challenge card from last week is a stunning Christmas Tag/pocket card,
The papers you have used are so gorgeous, 'classy Christmas papers', I love the dark almost burgundy red with cream and gold, your beautiful flower sprays in opposite corners give such an exquisite finish to your card, as do the flat back gems around the edge, they really draw your eye in, so you focus on that beautiful tag, it looks like a page from a vintage book, a stunning Christmas card!
Thank you so much Lorraine for allowing me to share your cards with all of our lovely friends here onthed blog, I can't wait to see this weeks! Xxxx
Now please cross your fingers and toes, its GCSE results day today, we have two very stressed daughters this morning, they should get their results at about 10am your time or 11am here, we are proud of them whatever the outcome, they both worked very hard for their exams, I will pop back in later to let you know !
Janet, I hope you aren't in too much pain this morning, sending you lots and lots of love and hugs xxxx
Pat and Sue, I hope you had a fun day crafting together, did you both get your challenge cards made ;) ! I was thinking of you throughout the day, missed you both very much xxx
We had a very relaxing day yesterday, just sat around reading our books and playing a few rounds of Triominoes, a lazy late lunch, Paul and the girls were so warm in the afternoon we walked to the beach at about 4pm, they all had a swim, I just laid and read my kindle, we came back about 7.30pm, it was still so warm and sunny, I could have stayed another hour or two, we had to get back to call Matt to wish him happy birthday though, followed by a lazy, late dinner and an early night. We have busy day planned today, hopefully to celebrate the girls results, we are going up the coast to hire one of those boats with a slide on, we did it last year and the girls and Paul had great fun, I sat on the deck sunbathing! We will visit the icecream parlour and have a wander around the shops too!
Have a lovely day lovely friends,
Love and hugs
