Next Weeks Challenge

💛❤Happy Birthday Cheryl❤💛

Good Morning Ladies,

I want to start today by apologising for getting confused on the date of our lovely Chery's Birthday, I made the mistake of going by Facebook this time, which has your Birthday as the 27th.
I know that all of your lovely friends here on the blog will join me in wishing Cheryl a Very Happy Birthday, followed by a year of Good Health and Happiness XXX

Your Next Challenge

I thought that we would go for 'Things With Wings' for next week's challenge, I always try to think of topics that will work for most occasions.  This one works well for any card from Angels, Robins and Doves for Christmas cards to Butterflies, Dragonflies and Birds for everyday cards.
I  hope that you will enjoy this challenge my lovelies, I look forward to seeing your cards XXX

Earlier this year I bought the 'Chloe's Creative Cards' 'Butterfly Trails' collection. which included a 3D embossing folder, a set of stamps and a lovely die collection.  This is what I used to make today#s card, I embossed a piece of white card with the embossing folder and added some glue with a fine tip glue pen and added some of Chloe's Razzle Dazzle Glitter,  I then stamped butterflies onto white card and vellum and die cut them and added them over the butterflies on the Embossing folder, I finished the butterflies with some crystal gem stones.

The craft room reorganisation continues, I wish I could have captured the look on Paul's face when he walked into the chaos yesterday, it was pure shock I think, hahaha!  I invited him to help but he said he wouldn't know where to start, I just smiled and carried on!

I hope that you all have a lovely day, especially Michele, have an amazing time!

Love and hugs to all you,

  6. Hi Sandra & Ladies.
    Well I’m not to sure what I’m doing. I was wishing Cheryl a Happy Birthday this morning but it seems to have been on yesterday’s post. Lovely Groovi card Sue.
    I’d said Karen that if we have a meet up in Watford where we can craft. I think you did this last time youall met up. I’ll bring some Groovi for you to try. When I came home from Croatia a piece of felt had come apart and I had a big flap exposing the wood underneath. So the shed was re felted today.

  7. HI Sandra and all in the Cafe today.
    Thank you for sharing my card. I will trying out pastels on the next one as the pencils I have don’t blend very well at all xx
    Mum, l hope you are still feeling a little stronger each day. Love you xxxx
    Lynda’s , I’m sorry that you are in so much pain. Can you get stronger pain killers? Xx
    Maria, I have been into the Cafe most days but can’t comment! So annoying. I hope you’re not in any extra pain xx
    Lilian, I hope the headache is gone when you wake up tomorrow xx
    Michele, enjoy your anniversary holiday xx
    My mind has gone blank now so can’t remember what the rest of you are up to so I’ll say goodnight now
    Sending love and hugs to you all with extras for all in need. Take care xxxx
