Good Friday morning my lovely Friends,
No news from our Lynda yesterday so I have everything crossed hoping it means she was having surgery! I will let you know if I here anything x
Brenda how lovely that your hairdresser has kept all of your cards, it must be fun seeing your 'crafting through the years' and its not vain at all, i love to hear things like this. X
Sue, Pat and I had a lovely day at the Witney Groovi class, the card was very technical this time so I will finish mine at home, the White work is the thing i find hardest, getting the right pressure is an art i think! Luckily the lady that runs it writes really clear step by step instructions so following those it should be easy enough to try and finish at home, i will say though that the picot cutting on this card is very fancy!!
Sue kindly took my to Sainsbury's after club and pat joined us for a coffee, Paul picked me up from there and we stopped at our Polling Station on the way home, we arranged to meet the girls there to assist them with their first vote, in true Riley style we laughed and joked through the whole thing, the very posh lady at the desk looked horrified when she heard me say to the girls "bear in mind if you vote labour you'll be homeless "! We were the only ones there at thst time of the evening, especially in sleepy town!
We have been talking about the election over the news with the girls this past few weeks, they were thinking of not voting because of not understanding, we would never try to influence them either way, we just wanted to make sure that had a vague idea so that they felt like they could vote.
Let's just all hope that whichever way it goes the country won't be bought down even further, I for one would love to hear the end of ,'Brexit', I actually voted to remain but the Country decided differently, we just need to have an end to it.
Next week's Challenge
I thought that it would be nice to see some 'shaped' cards for our next Challenge.
Basically I mean anything 'other than' a rectangle!!
So it could be:
Any shape: Circle, Rectangle, Diamond
Use a die to cut the card base, (like the card i have shared with you today).
A 'fancy' fold
I am excited to see what you all design, I hope you enjoy the Challenge.
Paul is getting the Christmas tree and decorations out of the loft when he gets home this afternoon, so that will be our entertainment this weekend. Have you all got yours up??
I would love to see some photos!!
Whatever you are doing I hope you have a lovely weekend.
Love and hugs to all of you
