Another Challenge card to inspire you


Good Morning Ladies,
I thought today was Thursday, probably because I usually get to see Sue and Pat on Wednesday and not Tuesday, sadly Sue couldn't make it, hoping to have a catch up with Pat later today.  After our very late night/early morning we will be having a lazy morning I think.
Now onto today's card, I used the Brittania Small Rose/multi flower die, available from Pink Frog Crafts, to make the three roses, I love how cute they are!
I then die cut the Impression Obsession Leafy Branch die for foliage, using the lovely 'Shades of Green ' paper pad that Brenda gifted me, such a useful little pad when it comes to cutting foliage.
I decided to use the Spellbinders Detailed Scallops die cut to place my floral spray on, I added a matt of the same pink card that I used to make the flowers and the cut Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles as my card base. A tiny pink bow adds the finishing touch to my floral spray.
I hope you like my card and that it gives you a little inspiration for this weeks challenge.

Sending special hugs to our dear friend Janet, please get in touch if you can xxxx
Hugs to you too Sue xxxx

Love and hugs to all of you
Sandra
Xxxxxx

  1. Good morning Ladies,
    Gorgeous card Sandra, the little roses are so cute and delicate , also the lacy die cuts mats are the perfect setting!
    Sonia , I loved your card yesterday , you have such a wonderful eye for putting colours together , like you I loved LOTV art pads but still have quite a few in my stash, I also like Hobby House and Sugar Nellie images and stamps and their Funki kits digi stamps look cute too.
    I don't know where yesterday disappeared to between going to the golf club for coffee ( which took nearly 4 hours) and then I trimmed my friends hair and between phone calls and visitors my day was gone!
    Anyway , we set off on holiday this morning a few days in Edinburgh and then to Spain for 2 weeks ( probably won't be in touch then as I'm not taking my iPad with me ) so can't wait to get underway.
    Sandra I hope you meet up with Pat and Sue today after getting some rest, I always feel quite washed out after such a late night.
    Janet sending you extra hugs , hope you feel much better soon.xo 🤒
    Maria, glad you enjoyed your holiday , good luck with all the unpacking and washing etc . ( I hate that bit) 🙁
    Love and hugs to all xoxo

  2. Morning Ladies

    Lovely card Sandra, very pretty. Hope you're not too tired today after the trip to the airport.

    I have a meeting first thing this morning-hoping to get a few things sorted but more likely, it will be the usual waste of time!

    I drafted up an action plan for my two weeks off and the until time once the refurbishment starts although we still haven't had confirmation that anything is happening yet!!!

    Hubby had his photograph taken last night holding the trophy he had won-its a really nice picture. He won money on his account for being nearest the pin (I think) so he was very happy.

  4. Hello Everyone, looks as if it's going to be a nice day here, our Australian cousins arrived yesterday, and they want to go to the Lost Gardens of Heligan today ( gardens featured on a tv programme a few years ago ) so hoping it stays fine.

    Sandra love your card, also love the roses, I have one of those dies, bought a few years ago at a show and have never used it, now I have seen yours must get it out and give it a try.

    Janet do hope you will soon be feeling better and drop in to see us, you are missed.

    Must go I think my visitors are on the move,hugs Lilian

  8. Hello Sandra and everyone,

    Sandra I hope you and Paul are not feeling to exhausted after you evening/night spent driving to Gatwick and back. I'm sure Becca and Josh had loads to talk about and the return journey went quite quickly.
    Have a nice cuppa and chat with Pat, hope she and Pete got lots of help and answers. Please give her a hug from me. xx

    I love your card today, those little roses are gorgeous. Ladies I saw the little pad of various shades of green in Hobbycraft. They do come in other colours and only cost a couple of pound. It was after Karen had said she had been to the DIY store and picked up colour sample strips from the paint department (that's one for Frugal Friday) Brilliant idea Karen. But as I was in Hobbycraft and know Sandra love Green well it fell into my basket!!!

    I must go back and see what you ladies are up to today.

    Take care, Love Brenda xxx

  10. Hi all !
    Physio, she didn't even touch me today. She is calling me a mystery and have now written to my doctor for a transfer appointment at the hospital for a scan on my shoulder, they are both bad but the left arm is no good just a b---dy pain. Not easy when you need to hang washing or reach things up high. She could see though the result from the x-rays and I have medium Arthur in both hips and knees. Will just have to up the painkillers when it's really bad. So much fun for getting older. Soap box back under the cupboard. Have started on CC but not too happy so knowing me I will make a few before sending one :). Had a nice walk in the sunshine around some new built houses near us and then had coffee at Waitrose and read the daily papers. Bought some lovely prawns and had that with salad for my lunch (did put some lbs on during the week) Pat will agree about the puddings in Madeira :)
    Going back to my corner of the kitchen now for doing some cutting outs. Many hugs to you all, Xxxx
