Sue's beautiful Groovi card

Good Morning Ladies,

Did you ever start something and wish you hadn't bothered?? Well that's just how I am feeling about deciding to 'reorganise ' my craft room, it's absolute chaos, I got everything put back together, then couldn't decide whether to keep the side table that is attached to my craft unit or put something wider in it's place.
After a whole day of procrastinating I kept it attached and got Paul to get me a wider piece of wood to go on top, extending my work space, it doesn't matter how much space we have, we always  want more!

Luckily I had some company that helped me decide on what to do with my work space, it was lovely to chat whilst I re-organised, it made the job much less tedious. 
Sue bought her own reorganizing with her,  she had lots of dies that needed to be put back in sets, Sue was saying exactly the same as me with regard to wishing we were much more organised when it comes to putting dies back in their sets/packaging.
We both made some good progress though!

Today's card is a Gorgeous Groovi card, i believe that this is sue's second Groovi card which amazes me, its just fantastic.
I love all the detail around the wreath and the die cut butterfly is so delicate.
I really love the font of those letters too.
Thank you so much Sue  for such a lovely Birthday card and for coming to visit yesterday xxx

I bet you can all guess where i will be today!

I hope that you all have a lovely day,

Love and hugs to all,



  1. Morning Ladies

    Sandra-your Card from Sue is absolutely gorgeous, really beautiful.

    I think I’d end up in a similar situation in my craft room if I really started to re-organise it. One day I will have a go!

    Well Ladies-my last comment for a while as we go on holiday tomorrow morning & I’m not sure where I’ll get WiFi other than the hotel. We’re off to Singapore for our 25th wedding anniversary so I’ll be in touch once we’re home.


    1. Safe trip and Happy Anniversary Enjoy your trip to Tokyo xxx

    2. Hi Michele wishing you a very happy Anniversary & enjoy your holiday sounds fantastic. Safe journey xx

    3. Have a safe trip Michele and Happy Anniversary.

  2. Morning Everyone
    SUE what a beautiful card.So delicate and very elegant.
    Definitely one for the memory box.

    MICHELE-Many congratulations on your 25th.Have a good holiday and make sure you get a rest once you're there.

    Yesterday was one of those days where everything I tried went wrong. The weather didn't help either as it rained most of the day and it's raining this morning too.
    We're hoping to get to Marigny in a week's time so that's put me in a whirl too as we'll be closing the house for the winter etc etc.

    I really need to get something done re my CCs today.

    The CAFE is OPEN usual hours so pop in for a chat and a cuppa.HUGS are winging their way to you all.Take care and stay safe xxxx OH SANDRA- make sure you can get out of your craft room whilst trying to re reorganising.Perhaps tie a piece of string to the door as a guide hehehexxxx

  3. Beautiful card SUE Perhaps one day I’ll get a chance to have a go at Groovi just to see how easy/difficult it is
    I totally agree with you about reorganising craft areas I still use the dotty folders and have one for sentiments/alphabets one for Christmas and one for flowers etc etc I also cut of the description of the die set and glue it to back of magnetic sheet So I know number of dies etc that belong in that set I also write in sheet with a white pen if there’s a matching stamp set Sadly they’re just shoved in a drawer
    Came home shattered after meal out So I hope to do cc later I’m hoping for a delivery later of a die I ordered at weekend - you know which one it is SANDRA....
    Take care all xx

    1. Hi Karen
      I understand that when you met up in Watford you had a table to do some craft work on. If that’s the case next time I’ll bring some Groovi so you can have a go. Even if you just do that you’ll have something nice to colour and sent out of keep.

  4. Hi Sandra & all in café,

  6. Sue I'm sorry your card for Sandra is gorgeous. I must try my Groovy might have a try today. Xx

  7. Hello , very wet and windy here.

    Such a lovely card from Sue ,Sandra needs a frame .

    Had headache for 3days, so not doing much, GP says it’s the after effects of the treatment that I had on Friday.

    Michele hope you have a wonderful time in Singapore, be prepared for the heat.

    Sandra hope the craft room sort out is going well.

    Hugs to all, Lilian.

    1. Hi Lilian
      I hope your headache doesn’t last much longer, and that the treatment is helping.

  8. Hi all
    A beautiful card from Sue, you also like Pat have got the knack of making the Groovi, lovely work Sue.
    Michele- have a fabulous holiday and happy anniversary for you and other half !
    Lilian- hope you head felt better the longer the day went and that you soon won't have so many problems. Sending you a gentle hugs and wish you better.
    Lynda- hope you had a better day but with fibro we don't get many I'm afraid. Take care and hugs for you and CU.
    Cheryl- hope you had a good day and got what you wished for.
    Karen- hope your got some time to make the cc. Not sure why but I find it so hard to do white on white so just had to put some glitter to it, hope that's ok.
    Sandra- hope you had a progress full day and you managed to get some order on your dies. Going crazy working with the little space I got sometimes and it doesn't help with the mess so something has to be done about it tomorrow but if weather let me I would also like to dig over a bit in the garden, the rambles are taking over in the back and they are vicious.
    Have good evening all. Hugs Maria xx

  9. Hi Sandra
    Happy Birthday Cheryl. Not to sure if I wished you a Happy Birthday yesterday or not.
    I hope you managing to sort your Craft Room out Sandra. Look forward to see what you’ve done. I’ve moved my desk under the window as I was working in my own shadow where it was before.
    Lovely card Sue. I also made a Groovi card for Sandra.
