Our Next Challenge


Good Friday Morning Ladies, 

It's Friday !!! What are you all up to today?  Are you still having a 'swear word' day on Friday Janet? I hope you are relaxing instead of 'swearing'  I hope that you get to the Market today and more importantly to the Patisserie for your weekly treat.  I look forward to hearing your description.  Paul has gone into the office today, hopefully he won't be back too late, the office usually finishes around 1.30 on a Friday. so fingers 🤞 crossed.  We don't have any plans this weekend but we are hoping to have a day out together, now that the covid symptoms have calmed down. Although we have a million things to do in the garden too. It looks as though the weather is going to be decent for the weekend which is a bonus. 

Great news:  Sophie got the highest possible score on her last assignment, which will hopefully mean she gets a fantastic overall grade.  We are so proud of her, she works so hard and puts so much effort into every assignment though which her main tutor congratulated her on on Wednesday after she was told her score for her assignment.  We are very much looking forward to her graduation in July! 

Our Next Challenge

We haven't had this challenge for a while, it may well require you delving into your older craft stash, I do think it's a challenge that we can all enjoy though. 

So have you guessed yet??  So for this challenge I would like you to make cards using Dies Only,  I am happy for you to use stamps for sentiment as I have on some of the cards above. It's also Ok to use decorative papers, the majority of your card should be die based though. 

I hope that you all enjoy this challenge my lovelies, it will be fun to see what you all decide to use. 

I hope that you all have a lovely day and a fantastic weekend,

Love and hugs to all of you,

Sandra                                                                                                                                                          xxxxxx


  1. You must have read my mind! I actually started making a card just with dies and an embossing folder for this week’s challenge I’ll save it for next week now 🤣
    Well done Sophie and what a relief that it’s over
    Tomorrow I am going to Living Crafts in Hatfield I am looking forward to seeing the friend I am going with as it’ll be about 2 1/2 years since I’ve seen her I’ve booked a workshop on making “posh” chocolates There we’re loads I would have liked to do eg silk scarf marbling, silver clay, raku firing. It will be interesting to watch craftsmen too
    Sunday OH is playing bowls and if weather OK I will go and watch
    I’m looking forward to hearing about your trip to market Janet if you’re able to go
    Take care everyone xx

  2. Hi everyone
    All wonderful cards Sandra. Good idea for next week, as usual tho I have this weeks to finish and I can't find the die that I need so mojo went and had a nap and is not back yet....
    OH and I went to the library this morning and I popped to Bon Marche for some new cosy trousers and came out with a bag full.
    I also walked in to the centre where I been for cortisone injection etc for I waiting for an appointment. She looked on the screen and said sorry but there is no referral. I explained that I was in agony and needed to get help and so I got an appointment on the 16th Funny how she suddenly could give me help without a referral ?!
    I hope you all have a good day and stay safe. Many hugs xx

  3. Hi everyone
    Lovely challenge for next week, and great inspiration 😊
    I finally got around to doing some crafting last night, making a journal page to fit this weeks challenge.
    I’m off work now for 2 weeks…..and just my luck I don’t feel very well! 😔 Had a cold a couple of weeks ago and haven’t gotten over it. Fingers crossed it soon passes. Both the boys and Hayley have had a sickness bug, so I’m praying I don’t get that.
    Hope you all have a good evening. Sending hugs to you all xxx

    1. So sorry, I forgot to congratulate Sophie on her score - that’s great news and worth all her hard work xxx
