Good morning Ladies,
I hope you are all still here, none of you got whisked off to France in those gales?!
To be honest I was very surprised to not see a lot of damage and debris along the road as we popped to the shops yesterday afternoon. A few branches here and there and shop signs strewn about the streets (why they put them out is beyond me) !
Anyway i hope that you all stayed safe and I was praying it didn't affect your visit to Pete with your family to place your beautiful floral arrangement, the verse is one of my favourites.
Cheryl's Floral Arrangement
I hope you had a lovely day with all of your nearest and dearest, knowing you Cheryl you would have been sharing many of your wonderful memories of Pete, i remember being in tears of laughter hearing some of them on the retreat. xxx
This week I decided to go for a traditional sketch, quite a simple design, I hope that you enjoy designing a card for this weeks Challenge, I thought i would try and mix up the styles of Challenges, so that you don't get bored.
Next week i was thinking about Challenging you to create an item of 'Home Decor' with your craft stash, rather than a card, it could be bunting, a decorated candle, a box etc. What do you think?? I thought i would ask you all first rather than springing it on you and having you all Panic, I will look for you thoughts in the comments.
Oh by the way, the craft table didn't get moved yesterday, Becca decided at 12.45 that she wanted something more than just a 'Card' for Georgia's 21st Birthday, which meant a mad dash to town for Paul and I to see if i could find a 'Shadow Box' style frame, we got home at 4.20pm after collecting the girls from work, Becca arrived at 5.30 asking if it was ready !! So i felt under pressure to come up with something suitable, while the waited! I finished it at about 6.30, by the time I'd waiting for glue gun to heat up etc, 'the watched pot' !!! She was happy with the result, i will share it with you after she has opened it, just in case she peeks!
Pat, my thoughts will be with you my Lovely, this is going to be a stressful week for both of you, i have everything crossed for positive news from all appointments, as always you know I am only a phone call away xxx The same by goes for call of you, sometimes it really does help to just tell someone, even if that person can't physically help, just sharing your burden can lift the weight from your shoulders a little, it is the least i can offer any of you wonderful friends xxx
Love and hugs to all,
PS my sketch card is to follow, i did start it after Becca left last night, then Paul needed help with dinner!
