Good Sunday Morning Ladies,
What a fabulous time we had yesterday, this time there was plenty of time to walk around in the hall at Ally Pally, it wasn't too crowded, we shopped for a few hours and then we all met up and had lunch together, it was lovely to see everyone including Brenda Littlelamb and Scarlett. The afternoon just disappeared, we know longer set off shopping again and it was almost 4pm, so we ended up 'speed shopping'!! We did get to have a catch up with Sue Wilson, which is always lovely, it's so lovely to listen to the enthusiasm she has for her new products and the excitement for new things coming up too!
Here we all are having lunch, from the front right.....

Now onto this weeks cards, the theme this week was the 'Channel' style card, which was named by Sue W herself as a style of card that has a recessed channel. As always you did me very proud, each of you coming up with a unique and individual design.
Anne has turned the challenge sideways for her design, that butterfly embossing folder is so pretty and detailed. The paper you have used for the 'channel' is really pretty too, such a lovely challenge card Anne, thank you so much xxxx
Janet, a beautiful vintage image is the focal point of your pretty challenge card this week, Spellbinders Edgabilities giving that gorgeous 'Lacey' look to the card on either side of the framed image.
The tiny flowers around the frame finish your card beautifully, thank you Janet xxx
Karen, two very different challenge cards from you this week, both of them fabulous! The first card is using Creative Expressions Diagonal die (to create the channel), I love how you have picked out the red from the background and added it to the diagonal border, the 'Love' die Karen bought from Hobbycraft, it is perfect for this card, the embossing folder that Karen has used to add detail to the top of the card was a bargain from Ally Pally, each element comes together to create a fantastic card.
The second card was made using a google image, the sentiment has been made using Sue Wilson's Perspective die, which I have to say works perfectly for this card, the letters stand out really well Karen. The sentiment inside the card reads "Have a Dog-gooner of a day", perfect for any "Gunners" fan ! The second photo shows the channel part of the card.
Thank you Karen for two fabulous cards xxx
Lilian, a beautiful Christmas card from you this week, wow that Poinsettia paper is so pretty, the silver embellishments that you have used add a lovely sparkle to your card, I really love those stars along the channel of your card, thank you so much for taking part, I know you have had an extremely busy week xxx
Lynda, such a pretty shade of blue on your card this week, you have used Spellbinders dies to edge the channel part of your card, I love the sentiment that you have stamped along the channel Lynda. You have made some beautiful flowers using Creative Expressions Diagonal Foldover Flower die and some pretty blue and white felt, some pretty white Ivy finishes your card, I love it Lynda, thank you very much xxx
Margaret has used Creative Expressions Mini Striplet 'Wise Men' for your challenge card, a beautiful coloured background paper and the lovely 'Peace on Earth' sentiment, something we all hope and pray for daily! Thank you Margaret for a fantastic challenge card xxx
Maria, oh I love your challenge card this week Maria, that vibrant floral paper is just so pretty, you have picked out a perfect shade of blue for your sentiment piece, the three daisies look so pretty and work so well with your patterned paper, the pretty blue gems finish your card beautifully, thank you so much Maria xxx
Sonia, oh my that black and pink paper is both striking and stunning, the punched black borders that edges the channel of your card works so well, drawing your eye into your three pretty flowers, I love the "wishing you all you're wishing for" sentiment too, thank you so much for taking part Sonia xxx
Val you have used another fabulous embossing folder for your card this week, you must have loads, I wish you lived closer so that we could all share your craft stash!!! The glitter card that you have used is such a pretty shade too, the pearls you have used compliment it perfectly too. I have this flourish die, it is so delicate and so pretty and gives a fabulous finishing touch to your card. Thank you so much for taking part, particularly as you had such a busy week, xxx
Thank you all so much for taking part ladies.
The photos of our Ally Pally purchased will be up tomorrow hopefully.
Love and hugs to all,
