I hope that you all stayed safe in those High Winds yesterday, goodness me it was blowing a gale around here, we have a cover on our big car as it only gets used once a week and I honestly thought it was going to take off like a hot air balloon at one point as the wind was getting under the cover and lifting it right up, apart from a few rogue branches falling in the garden we had no damage.
I was interested to read some of your reactions to us leaving the EU yesterday, I guess we will have to wait and see how it truly affects us all, kind of feels sad though (to me), I can't help but wonder how it will change things from our day to day lives to the little things like our summer holidays after this year, as we spend a good 3 1/2 weeks travelling through France and Spain, part of me feels that they are going to try and make an 'Example' of UK for leaving, making things as hard as possible for us but that remains to be seen I guess.
By the way this is just my opinion and I'm not trying to force it on to any of you, I would never do that. I just felt kind of sad and wanted to talk about it.
Enough of the serious stuff, lets look at your cards...….
Four amazing designs from Janet for our '1 stamp 2 Ways Challenge', I love them both, such unusual stamps, it's nice to see something different to the 'everyday' designs, you have some incredible stamps Janet.
I will add Janet's description below:
Thanks so much Janet for four amazing Challenge cards XXX
Karen has used an old Spellbinders die that she found in a Bargain Bucket to create her Challenge cards this week, I have to say Karen that you have achieved 2 totally different looks with this set, I love them both but the first one really grabs the attention, it just goes to show what a different effect you get with different colour card and patterned paper!
Thank you so much for taking part this week my lovely XXX
Lilian has used a lovely Silhouette stamp to create her '1 stamp 2 ways' challenge this week.
Using different masks/stencils and a different colour makes the world of difference, I also love the little touch of adding the black ink around the edges of your coloured card, which slightly mutes the colour, that little touch of black really ties the whole card together.
Thank you so much Lilian for taking part in this weeks challenge. XXX
Michele gets an extra point this week as she used up a Background that she made for another Challenge to create her challenge cards for this week, very frugal Michele, brilliant idea!
These two cards have different embossing folders and different sentiments, nothing else has changed but they work for perfectly for their designated theme.
Thanks so much Michele for finding time to take part in this weeks challenge XXX
Well that's all for today's post Ladies, I hope that you all enjoy what's left of the weekend, thank you so much to all of you that took part in this weeks challenge.
Love and hugs to all of you,
