Good Sunday Morning Ladies, 

I hope that you have had a lovely weekend so far, we have had a very relaxed weekend,  not that we have much choice in that right now,  but its nice to  spend quality time together however you are spending it, although I would prefer a warm beach if I had the choice. !

Let's have a look at your cards.....


Brenda has used the HoneyDoo 'Floral Crest' stamp to create this beaufiful Birthday card, I love how you have continued the stamping over the frame Brenda, it's an amazing effect.

Wow Maria, I absolutely love the paper that you have used for your Challenge card this week , I love the Script and the fact that its green just makes it perfect!!

Sonia has designed a stunning Christmas card for this weeks TicTacToe Challenge,  I have to say I love the combination of Kraft Card and White together.

I used fav colour/male/nautical.

Karen bought her future Son in Law a Bonsai Tree for his Birthday,  so in true Karen style she had to make a card that tied in with a theme, such a thoughtful touch.

  1. Morning Everyone
    Oh Sunday morning with my first cup of coffee of the day and CCs who could ask for more.
    Lots of beautiful creations and all different in every way.
    SANDRA I loved this Challenge and look forward to more of your tic tactoe Challenges.

    Well at the moment the sun is shining but for how long who knows. At least we managed to shop and get back home before the rain came again.
    I have one or two tidying jobs to do round my craft table and then relaxing - I hope watching the second day of the Tour de France.Wish we were there.

    The CAFE is OPEN and it's Roast Chicken with veg for lunch so place your orders if you want lunch.
    HUGS are ontheir way to you all.TAKE CARE AND STAY SAFE.xxxx

  2. Good morning Sandra and ladies.
    Sitting here with my morning mug of weak tea and a banana and looking at some amazing tic,tac,toe cards. I love them all and will soon have a look again before going off on our walk this morning. Not sure yet what the day brings but will try my parents this afternoon. They have just got back after touring around in their motor home visiting old friends they met once on a holiday to Cuba. I love to go there but OH is not keen (sure he would like it if I could just get him there) I'm worried because of the covid but they don't seem to have the rules in Sweden at all so as long they are careful I can only hope that they be alright.
    Have a lovely ,relaxing Sunday everyone. Many hugs in the basket inside the door so help yourself to as many you need. Maria xx

    Late start for me, I actually managed to sleep most of the night. I’ve had my breakfast & been blog hopping.

    What a fantastic selection of challenge cards today.

    Looking at the scarecrows sounds like fun Sandra.

    We have sunshine so I can put out yet more washing and hopefully we can have a BBQ tonight. In between Skype with the in laws and phoning my Dad.

    Enjoy the scarecrow trail, and the rest of the day everyone. Hugs to all xx

  7. Hello All, lovely sunny day if somewhat chilly.

    Super bundle of cards today, and all so different.

    Keeping it short, been trying to set up new tv box, but it’s not working, very expensive piece of rubbish, they are supposed to be getting back to me to help, that was 4hrs ago. It’s given me a terrible headache, usually good at most technical stuff.

    Hope you are all having a lovely day, Lilian
