Good Monday Morning Friends,
Such a lovely Spring day yesterday, I spent time in the garden supervising Paul while he put the washing line up, I bit my lip but I think it will definitely need concreting in, he is hoping to avoid doing it so it's easy to take down when we next move. Although after these past few months the thought of moving again makes me feel sick, so it won't be anytime soon! It was so lovely to see the washing blowing on the line though. We also managed another trip to the Household Waste Recycling centre with some more cardboard etc, it was really busy there, we have to make sure we have a utility bill in the car as you have to prove you live in Swindon area to use the centre, we have never had to do that before.
I spent a couple of hours in my craft room preparing for the Magic Window tutorial, I had to make another sample card as the one I made last week was for Paul's Mum's birthday, so I don't have it to demonstrate at the start of the video, so I made another one and then cut out the pieces for the one I will put together in the tutorial. There's more to making these tutorials than you think, I am excited to get started though.
Now onto this week's Challenge, I decided early yesterday morning that I would go for a Tic Tac Toe Challenge, mainly because it doesn't matter what cards you have to make you can incorporate them into the categories in the grid.
I used a card that a made a couple of weeks ago it uses categories Yellow/Die cut/Flowers.
I have lots of ideas for this particular challenge so watch this space, I also thought with it featuring yellow and other fun categories like sequins it would be good for any Easter cards that you still have to make.
I hope you like the Challenge.
Janet I am so sorry to read that you had such a troubled start to your break, thank goodness you were there to catch it before too much damage was done, although when you had problems a few years back the local people were really kind and helpful I seem to remember. You must be so frustrated not having access to your laptop, don't worry about the challenge though, I'm sure I have I can find one of your cards that would fit the challenge. I will say that I do all my blogging from my tablet though, mainly because I can take photos and upload straight to the blog, rather than faffing about connecting camera and uploading to laptop. I like things that are easy!
I hope the worst of the mess is cleared and that you and Jim can finally relax. Xxx
Margaret you are doing a fantastic job taking over the reigns from Janet, your rice pudding was delicious! How many of you like a blob of jam in your rice pudding? What about the skin?? My family aren't keen, they will eat the tinned kind after its been chilled but not home made. My favourite is making it with coconut milk and serving with Mango! Yum. XXX
Have a lovely day ladies,
Love and hugs to all,
