A 'Things With Wings Card'

Good Morning Ladies,

Welcome to October, it really feels like Autumn this past couple of days too, it's been really chilly, not helped by the wet weather.

Today's card was actually made with a Topper that came free with a magazine (a while ago), I never usually use those kits but actually quite liked the designs in this set, of course I had to add some flowers  give it a special touch for a special friend. I quite liked how this one turned out.  It also works for our 'Things With Wings Challenge' .

I finally got around to making a new YouTube Video, it is just a video saying that 'I am back, with new internet', so uploading video's will be so much easier, I also go through rather a large Haul of new craft goodies that I have accumulated since mid August, so you can go and have a look at all the new dies and stamps that I have to play with.
I will leave a link to the Video below, if you have time please go and have a watch, I would really appreciate your support.

My New YouTube Video

I am looking forward to seeing Pat today and hearing all about her holiday, it feels like months since I last saw her, lots and chatting and hopefully some crafting too!

I hope that you all have a lovely day, keep dry and warm,

Love and hugs to all of you,



  1. Morning Everyone
    SANDRA-what a very pretty card and a freebie too what more can anyone want for a quick card when needed.

    Well we got away yesterday without any rain but it's making up for it this morning and I've already got the heating on. Rain and damp definitely do not mix with my body.

    I hope that your Mum is home and settled SANDRA. I also have everything crossed that she is being good and following instructions.

    The CAFE is OPEN ready for you all.It's nice and warm with welcoming Autumn leaves in thre little pots on the tables.
    TEA and COFFEE pots are ready and waiting.

    HUGS are winging their way to you all with extras for Dear Friends not feeling too good.Have a good day; take care and stay safe xxxx

    1. Hello Janet Hope the packing is going well and you have all your craft goodies sorted. XX

  2. Pretty card SANDRA I do SitRep buy magazines very often and should sort of know what I’ve got But I don’t and completely forget that some may contain pretty papers like this
    I will take a look at your video after work I love seeing other people’s crafty stash
    Yesterday was a little emotional seeing the ones going receive their gifts and cards
    Today will be interesting We’re all dreading it a bit When all’s said and done we still have to give patient care which we strive for to be the best
    I hope to craft later I need a couple of birthday cards
    Hope everyone is OK Enjoy your day with PAT xx

    1. SitRep? Where did that come from It was meant to say I don’t buy mags that often!

  3. Hi Sandra & all in café,
    Sandra lovely card today. I will look at video later. Have a good day with Pat.xxx
    Karen hope today goes alright.xxx
    Maria, Lynda & Lilian hope you feel better.xxx
    Sending hugs to all love Margaret.xxx

  4. Hi All, a lot of flooding in the towns near us, very high spring tides, feel so sorry for people.
    Sandra love today’s card.
    Hospital again today, been feeling terrible since cardio version.

    Have a good day all, hugs Lilian

  5. You tube lost the will to live. Droning on with that monotone drab voice all the errms in between give it up your wasting time.


    1. What a positive and uplifting comment, thank you so much xx

    2. Was too long and boring as above the errmss were so annoying and totally distracted from the haul. If you cant take positive or negative feedback then don't upload.

    3. Totally agree Jeanette, What a load of rubbish, I lost the will to live as well! Errm!

    4. I tend to totally agree with the above comments. I've never been so board watching a craft video yours is right up there with the worst of the worst. I also agree that if you can't take the criticism then don't bother uploading your video. A good youtuber is one that learns from the critics and grows from them not get stroppy. Give it up before you show yourself up even more.

    Hi Sandra and all in the Cafe today. What a pretty topper, the flowers that you have added turn the card into something really special. I loved seeing your video. So glad you can make them again xx
    Karen, thinking of you again today, hope work isn’t too bad x
    Maria, it’s good to see you managed to get out with SIL x
    Lilian, it is always so sad to see homes flooded. If I remember correctly your home is on higher ground. I do hope so. Sending gentle hugs and hope you get some help at the hospital today x
    Brenda, don’t go doing too much. This bug does seem to take a while to recover from properly. Healing hugs x
    Janet, the damp doesn’t do our bodies much good does it. I hope you manage to get everything sorted ready for your upcoming break x
    I have a couple of cards to make so that is me sorted for the rest of the day, and evening no doubt as it always takes me so long to decide on what style, colours etc to use! Sending love and hugs to you all with extras for all in need. Take care xx

  7. Hi Sandra & Ladies.
    Well for some reason I can no longer comment on Sandra’s blog. So this is going via Sandra. A lovely card for Sandra from you Brenda. I love the colours you’ve used as well. I hope today isn’t to traumatic for you today Karen. I hope your not having to much rain today Lilian, to add to the flooding you already have.

  8. Hello Sandra and ladies,

    What a pretty card Sandra, and those flowers really do make it look something special. Sorry haven’t had chance to look at your video yet, I’m pleased that at last you’re able to start recording your videos again - now the internet has been sorted out. xx

    LILLIAN Hope the hospital appointment goes well. Although both of mine eventually failed and they will not give me a third, after I’d had each of them I really felt so much better. So for your sake I hope you get some answers today. Take care xx

    Have a good day with PAT, I’m sure you both have got so much to talk about, maybe you’ll even find a little time to do some crafting. xx

    I hope everyone is having a good day, sending hugs to everyone especially those who are feeling a little under the weather.
    Love Brenda XXX

  9. Hi Sandra & ladies

  10. Hi all,
    Sitting here with hubby with a cup of tea before bed. He came home just before midnight being to football.
    Most of you are probably in bed but I wanted to say how pretty your card is Sandra and the flowers framing it are so sweet. You always know how to arrange them on cards so lovely.
    Awful weather here all day and as you know it do no good at all to body's in pain but bit my teeth and went to ww this morning in town and then had a look in the shops. Were a bit surprised of some of the clothes especially dresses at Primark, for me they looked like curtains and not for wearing :/ Got a free flu jab at Superdrug which was good so that's done for this year. Well it's late and if it's not raining in the morning,well later hihi we are thinking of walking to Ikea, got to keep it up when I can but I guess it didn't help I bought home some Custard Doughnuts oops,mmm they were yummy Lol Good night my friends and hugs Maria xx
