❤HAPPY ANNIVERSARY PAUL❤
Good Sunday Morning Ladies,
I want to start today by thanking the most important person in my life...Paul for an incredible 30 years of love!!
I was lucky enough to meet the love of my life on the 10 March 1988, our meeting was purely by chance, although I like to think it was fate as I honestly think that nobody could be lucky enough to just happen to bump into the person that they will get to spend the rest of their lives with! I was so incredibly lucky on that day, I often feel the need to pinch myself just to make sure I'm not dreaming.
As each year passes our love grows and for me the 'honeymoon' phase has never ended, still get excited with butterflies when I know he will be almost home, I miss him terribly when he isn't home and we both never tire of each others company, we can be together 24/7 for weeks and not get bored of each others company. So thank you Paul, for an incredible 30 years, you are my life, my love and my happiness combined, I cannot wait for the next 30 years!! ❤💛❤
Sorry for that indulgent moment ladies, let's get back to today's amazing blog post, you have made some absolutely incredible cards for this weeks TicTacToe Challenge...……

Karen has made two totally fabulous Challenge cards for this week's TicTacToe challenge, your 'Pixie powdered' background is super pretty, love the colours you have used and it works so well with that embossing folder too.
My favourite card is the Pink Polka dots with the SW Papercut edger die, wow wow wow that vibrant pink polka dot card is stunning, I'm not super into pink, but goodness me that card is a 'head turner' I love it !!
Here is Karen's description…...
''Here are two cc
Card No.1 Die cut - ribbon - flowers - piece of PP’d (Pixie powdered) card
Die cut is a free Altenew 3 layer die with Hobbycraft ribbon, Bed of Roses EF (ooh part of the challenge!) and a Phill Martin sentiment cut with a very cheap die from The Works
Die cut - polka dots - any shade of pink I love love love these new papercut edger dies
Thank you so much Karen for two amazing cards, I have to say that the super cheap frame die from the works is fantastic, I love the shape!! xxx
Lynda has made a beautifully coloured card for this weeks TicTacToe Challenge, so bright and cheerful.
Lynda used Categories: Shades Of Yellow/Flowers/Ribbon
Lynda has made one of her beautiful coloured backgrounds, using shades of yellow blended over the card, she then stamped that beautiful flower in a lovely raspberry red coloured ink, such a lovely contrast colour. Lynda finished her card with a pretty yellow bow finished with a pearl flower.
Thank you so much Lynda, I know how busy you were this week xxx
Two super pretty cards from Margaret this week, both cards are made from the fantastic paper pad that was £1 for a 12 x12 pad from the Every Crafts a £ stand at Farnborough, funnily enough I had already bought two from the Online store after Danielle pointed them out to me, they had lots of embellishments to go with them too, flowers, pearls etc. Margaret has shown the pad off beautifully too. Its great to think that those cards cost so little to make with the main papers being so inexpensive.
Margaret chose to use Categories: Flower/Shades of pink/ polka dots for the first card
Margaret chose to use Categories: Flowers/Shades of Pink/Polka dots for the second card
Thank you so much for two beautiful cards Margaret xxx
Three fantastic cards from Our Michele for this weeks TicTacToe challenge.....
3 challenge cards
First one = Blue/sequins (gems really)/die cut.
Second one= Yellow/Diecut/flower.
Third Card= pink/sequins (gemstones)/Ribbon.
Thank you Michele for 3 lovely spring cards, I love the pattern of the gemstones on the third card, so unusual and I see you have used lace too!! xxx
I watched Sue making this card on Wednesday, I will say that I was amazed that you actually got as much done as you did as we literally didn't stop talking for I don't know how many hours (mostly because we had missed a couple of weeks).
Sue was determined to get her Christmas cards started and succeeded, well done my lovely!
Sue chose categories: Shades of Blue/Polka Dot/ Die cut
One thing that you can't see from the picture is that Sue has suspended the snowflake on fishing line (invisible) so it looks as though the snowflake is floating around, so clever!!
Thank you so much Sue for taking part again this week. xxx
The perfectly matched marble effect background was made by Our Val at Craft Club the week before, I would love to know how you made it Val ?!
Val used categories : Shades of Yellow/Blue/Embossing
Thank you so much Val for such a fantastic card, perfect for Cameron's 10th Birthday, he will love it! xxx
Ladies, thank you all so much for another amazing display of cards, I would also like to thank you you ALL for all of the love and support you have shown me this week, I really have struggled and I explained to a few of you how very worried I am about ending up back were I was a few years ago, in a very dark place, starting this Blog and finding all of you amazing friends has dragged me out of that part of my life. I know that that sounds dramatic but I promise you its the truth, writing this blog every day has given me something to get up for, given me a purpose, most of all it's given me the most amazing group of friends. I will conquer this medication/heart issue, please just stick with me, I will admit that when I looked in on Friday and at lunchtime there were only 3 comments, I thought that you were all sick of my whinging and had left me!! teehee xx
Have a lovely Sunday, we are planning to have a day doing just what we fancy!
Love and hugs to all of you,
