Our Next Challenge


Good Friday Morning Ladies,

I hope that you ladies are all as well as can be expected and aren't too exhausted after doing your swearing (Housework) ready for the weekend.  I always wonder on a Monday morning why I bothered on Friday, as the house looks just like it did Friday morning, not the whole house, our worst areas are the large hall downstairs,  the girls come in the door,  dump whatever they are carrying on the side table, keys, cards, water bottle,mask, they will then kick their trainers off, ( 5 pairs at one point last week) the frustrating thing about that is they walk past the shoe rack as they come in!  Then there is the trail of things on the stairs, I have a basket at the bottom where i put all the things I gather up belonging to them for them to take up with them,  we put their folded washing there etc but they just walk past it.  If you say anything about it to them, you are nagging!!  The one bonus is if they have their partners coming over, they will be flying round like something possessed,  vacuuming,  polishing, cleaning mirrors, windows etc, so we are thankful for that.   

Our Next Challenge 

For this weeks challenge I thought it would be fun to have another play with creating Backgrounds, you can use whichever technique or medium you fancy, you can use Stamps, Embossing folders,  Stencils/masks, alcohol inks, sprays,  patterned papers, anything you like, just have fun creating! 
I can't wait to see what you all create x

I hope that you all have a Fabulous Friday, 

Love and squishy hugs to all,



  1. Morning Ladies

    Just testing to see if blogger lets me comment as despite being signed in, it’s still showing as anonymous!

    Great challenge, I’m looking forward to being able to craft as it’s still too uncomfortable to hold much with my left hand.


  2. Great challenge and it’s lovely to see a reminder of what we’ve done
    We’re having our hair done later and out dancing tonight
    Take care everyone

  6. Hi Sandra and all in the Cafe today. A great challenge again this week. It’s always good to see some of the older cards for inspiration. ( I’m sure I must say that each week but I hope you know what I mean)
    Sandra, I wonder if you and I will be up to meeting next week? I do hope so as I miss seeing you so much my lovely xx
    I hope it’s warmer where you all are. It’s blooming chilly here. Such a difference in temperature from one day to the next isn’t there. Sending love and hugs to you all. Take care xx
