My Challenge Card
Good Morning Ladies,
What happened to the weekend?? We were preparing for the arrival of my Mum & Dad (in law) one minute, then saying goodbye the next! I hope that you all had a more relaxed weekend.
Above is this weeks Sketch, I chose this one because I thought it could be used for every style of card, replace the button with a snowflake, festive papers and you have a Christmas card (just one example). I was going to make this weeks sketch ''Man Cards", hence my challenge card being quite a neutral colour theme and very few embellishments. But I felt I would be restricting you too much, you can make a 'man card' if you like, but I won't mind if you choose a different theme. My initial thoughts were to give Lilian some ideas for male cards as she has a box of them to make for her friend. Maybe I should do it as a mini challenge!!!?
Anyway, the sketch is there for you and I look forward to seeing your cards.
Val, I hope you have a lovely few days away, I'm sure the sun will be shining for you, can't wait to hear all about it xxx
Janet, fingers, toes, legs & eyes crossed for good news today my lovely, please let us know how you get on. Sending you buckets of love and hugs xxx
Maria, my daughter got great relief from the steroid injection in her knees, they drained the fluid out first, then injected. She wasnt allowed to weight bear on it for 24 hours, she felt the difference a few days after, so fingers crossed it will help you.
I think a meet up sounds like an amazing idea, I was going to organise a big one but I know how much Janet wanted to meet everyone too, so I was waiting until she was on the mend before planning a stay-over type break. Would love another mini one though, hugs xxx
Lynda, did you recognise the pad I used above, it was one of the ones that you sent me, they are such fantastic quality, not cheap and flimsy like some pads are, I am sure you will have a few weeks of being prodded and poked on the build up to your operation, make sure you keep us reminded of dates etc, you will be a new woman before you know it, poor Terry won't knoiw what's hit him!! Haha, thank you again for the lovely gift, love and hugs xxx
Margaret, you lucky lady, are you loving your Gemini?? It must be so lovely for you to be able to cut your dies with ease, there will be no stopping you now, you must bring it with you for a crafting session, I would love to see it in action! Hugs xxx
Karen, your trip to the V&A sounded so much fun, I would love to have seen Val's face if she got to see it too, I could tell it really bought back memories for her.
They have some awesome exhibitions there don't they, it sounded like they pulled out all the stops for this one, thank you for sharing your experience with us, hugs xxx
Right I must go, I have an exciting new toy to unbox!!!! Week, Santa's been early, I will tell you all about it later xx
Have a lovely day ladies,
Love and huge hugs to all,
