Good Thursday Morning Ladies, 

I hope that you are all well, those of you that aren't I am sending you gentle hugs.  Today has been a slow day for me, I had the best day yesterday, there is no better tonic than meeting with lovely friends. I can't believe how fast the day went though, although we waited quite a while for our lunch to arrive,  once the Crafting started the time disappeared, the staff of the hotel were quite intriged, I wonder if they were panicking about the mess, although we didn't leave a trace!!  We had a moment of excitement as 'Paul Chuckle' from the 'Chuckle Brothers' came in for lunch, we took our children to see them years ago, Matt loved the Chuckle Brothers, it drove me bonkers! 

Today's card is a quick an easy card that I actually made before we went on holiday.  I used a Kraft card base and then die cut the 'Springtime Impression' die cut (SU), out of cream card and adhered it to the Kraft base card. I love this lacy floral corner die, I then stamped a sentiment and matted onto Kraft card punched Banner. A few gold coloured pearls add the finishing touches. 

I have to get my thinking cap on for this weeks challenge,  my fatigued brain isn't giving me any inspiration this week. 

I hope that you all have a great day,

Love and hugs to all,

Sandra                                                                                xxxxxx

  3. I love your card SANDRA I forget to try white embossing on Kraft card It looks so effective
    Tuesiwas great fun and like you say the staff are so accommodating and very friendly It looked like we were their biggest non-resident customers That might have helped I’d forgotten about seeing Paul Chuckie!
    Had covid booster yesterday afternoon and apart from a sore arm I feel fine
    Take care everyone xx

  4. Hi ladies
    Very nice card Sandra.
    Oh yes I forgot too that we saw Paul Chuckle, OH asked me if I got his autograph but told him I didn't want to disturb his lunch. Next time we are there,the staff can join in 😀 Janet, good luck with the passport. What a saga and I thought my was a problem when I have to go to London and then to pick it up again.😯
    Brenda, enjoy your hair being cut. I do love when they wash and blow dry mine because I have problem holding the arms in the air to long.
    Karen-hopefully the soreness in the arm will go soon. I have been looking for the Rulers you had with you but can not find them anywhere so please could you tell me where you bought them from ?
    Trying to make my son a card for Saturday, he be lucky if the glue have dried enough to be handle on Saturday morning 😕 I also like to have a cc made in time and the card we made finished from Tuesday 😁 best get up and get a wiggle on as someone used to say 😊
    Have a good day everyone and I wish anyone who couldn't sleep last night a better night tonight ! Hugs to you all xxx

  5. Hi everyone
    Love your beautiful card today, I’m always a fan of Kraft card and the cream die cut looks fabulous against it 😊
    Oh yes, I forgot about Paul Chuckle too…Mark said we should’ve had our photos taken with him, but like you Maria, I said I didn’t want to disturb him.
    Work wasn’t too busy this morning, but thankfully the time didn’t drag! It’s always worse when you’re sat there clock watching.
    It’s a lovely sunny day here today, and I hope you all have sunshine where you are.
    Enjoy the rest of the day everyone. Sending hugs to you all xxx

  6. Hi Sandra and all in the Cafe today. I love today’s card and the white against it looks so good. A great “less is more card”. I hope this finds you fast asleep my lovely xx
    I’ve been writing this then nodding off for the last few hours but I hope it publishes now.
    Sending love and hugs to you all with extras for all in need. Take care xx
