You can choose any style, size and colour for your card, you can use whatever you materials you like, there are no restrictions at all.

I can't wait to see all of your designs, I hope you enjoy the challenge as the most important rule is that you have fun making your cards.

Thank you so much Cheryl for choosing a fantastic theme for our challenge xxx

Well Ladies, I hope that you all have a lovely weekend,

Love and hugs to all of you,



  1. Morning Ladies

    Cheryl-what a lovely card & a great challenge for us this week.

    Just had to stop eating my breakfast & watch the squirrel 🐿 eating the peanuts-we’re so lucky to get Red squirrels visiting us.


  2. Morning ladies,

    Ooh what a lovely surprize to see my teddy card.
    Maria had put a plastic wallet full of these delightful teddies with their backing papers on the 'swap' table at our Retreat in Birmingham 2015. I had picked them up as they are so gorgeous, brought them home, assembled the decoupage elements and stored them in my plastic basket with larger dies to finish at a later date and there they stayed until I chanced upon them again by luck as I was storing another large die. I have had fun the last few days making sure that I finish the cards completely except for the inserts. I have 3 in mind for very young nephew and nieces and the others will be in a basket on sale for my next Fete.

    My lunch club is today at 12 noon, afterwards I will be enjoying the delightful company of Milly-May who is having a sleep over. Yay! with Jamie not home until Sunday I can spend some precious time off with her to play, shop, craft and go to the park.
    That is my weekend sorted, I hope your swill be as pleasurable as mine.

    Gentle hugs and healing prayers to all in need of them. They come with no strings attached.

    Love 7 hugs
    Cheryl xxx

  8. Hi Sandra & ladies
    Cheryl love your card it's gorgeous
    Love your challenge for this week thank you.
    PAT your card yesterday was Stunning your the parchment queen you have a real flair for it.
    Sorry didn't get in yesterday I had my RA appointment yesterday & waited over half n hour after my appointment time. I ACTUALLY saw the Dr its normally the head nurse
    Any way she examined me & said you seem to have a lot of pain. I said the pain is getting worse especially in my neck & feet /legs I showed her the tablet's my doctor gave me to take after weening off the pregabalin. She said I think you should take two tablets day as she was sure I had Fibromyalgia all over chronic pain.
    She asked why I was given them so I said for diabetic neuropathy she said they are also for Fibromyalgia
    Said to ring my doctor & ask her to up tablets. So rang yesterday still waiting for the Dr to ring back.
    We got home about 6ish as had to go shopping. I was shattered the pain in my neck feet legs was the worst they have ever been not sure if it was all her pushing & pocking me. I also had blood test & exrays,.
    Still aching today & been round Margaret's. Better get some dinner on. Hug's for all & poorly friends
    Love Lynda xx

    1. Hi Lynda,
      as you know I was told at age 18 that I have Fibromyalgia so I do feel for you if that's you have too. How come the doc taking you off the Pregabelin ? I got them but only take one in the morning and one at night. Big gentle hug being sent for you. Try to have a good night xx
