Your Next Challenge

Good Morning Ladies,

Firstly today I would like to wish Val a very Happy Birthday, I hope you have a lovely day celebrating xxx

Groovi Club was lovely yesterday, although I wasn't feeling very well, I'm not sure why, my heart was playing up a bit and I had one of those pressure headaches, I felt really hot and dizzy at times, I still managed to enjoy the day though, they really are a lovely bunch of ladies.
I didn't get my design finished, well most didn't to be honest, it was quite and involved design, I am looking forward to getting it finished.

Your Next Challenge

I thought that we would go with a nice simple TicTacToe this week, this is one that we haven't used before and it has some lovely categories to work with.  It can be used for any occasion too (for those of you that want to get started with your 'C' cards.!!!

If you are unsure of 'Neutral colours' just type exactly that into Pinterest and there is lots of inspiration.

I am hoping to use my new Gel Plate for my challenge cards, so watch this space,

I hope you enjoy the challenge,

Love and hugs to all,



  1. Morning Ladies

    Glad you enjoyed your Groovi class Sandra, Shame you ended up with a headache.
    Great challenge for us next week-some interesting choices on it.

    I’m so glad it’s Friday-my Brother & sister in law we’re due to come down from Scotland to visit my Dad this weekend but the forecast isn’t great so they’re not risking it. Don’t blame them.


  2. Morning Everyone
    HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY VAL.Have a lovely day whatever is planned for you.

    Thank goodness we are free of wind and rain this morning.
    We had a lovely evening out at our local AmDram and both really enjoyed the play.

    Well it's that 'swear' word day here so I'd better get a wriggle on.

    The CAFE is OPEN so anyone who wishes to pop in for a chat are more than welcome just help yourselves tea/coffee etc.

    HUGS are on their way to you all.Take care and stay safe.xxxx

  3. Great idea for the challenge as tic-tac-toe can be so versatile (not always as my brain just freezes when I look at the choices!) I like the look of this one
    I hope you’re feeling better today
    I enjoyed your video although if spluttered and came to a standstill I could zoom it along but could only get stills of what was going on Love that cloud die and hot air balloon card you showed
    Happy Birthday Val
    3 neighbours came around for a cuppa yesterday It was interesting hearing about the antics of the street before we came here! It was such a laugh
    Sorry to read about the theft MARIA Horrible for you and Rick
    Hugs LYNDA and MARGARET and others
    Take care xxx

  4. Evening all.
    Good Challenge for next week. Headache already for the thinking cap is tight and heavy. Sending my cc for this week later.
    Happy Birthday Val !, hope you get our messages and you had a lovely day x
    Had an outing to Ikea for breakfast and that was our Valentine hihi not celebrating anything of it but have a glass of red to the dinner tonight.
    Hope your day have been good and the storm Dennis will be nice to you up North and not too much damage will be done.
    Sending many hugs to you all and extras for Lynda, Margaret and Val. Take care all xxx

  5. Hello All, I seem to be having difficulty commenting again, sure I left one yesterday, but lost in the ether.

    Happy Birthday Val, hoping you have had a lovely day.

    Challenge for next well looks good, although I am struggling a bit, to get any cards made, have a box of cards already made. Have my this weeks made, will send it in the morning.

    Maria, sorry about your nasty experience you had, hope you are OK, ,always someone out there trying to steel from you.

    Hope everyone stays safe when storm Dennis blows in, poor people have only just cleaned up from earlier this week, enormous waves with some stupid people standing taking a selfie , I suppose they don’t realise how powerful the waves are( soap box away.)I’ll say good night, hugs to all, Lilian

  6. Hi Sandra and all in the Cafe today. Yesterday’s card was lovely. I’m glad to see you did use the pretty glittered background in the end. I also enjoyed our Groovi class yesterday and I hope you are feeling much better today. This weeks Tic Tac Toe has some great options. Will have to have a think about which ones to use. Have a good day tomorrow and see you Sunday my lovely xx
    Maria, so sad to hear your news. These low lives don’t have any conscience do they!!! And to have to pay to have a new driving licence just rubs salt into the wound doesn’t it! X
    Karen, lovely to hear you all enjoyed the meet up with your friends/neighbours x
    Brenda, you aren’t haven’t had much luck with trains lately have you. Let’s hope you don’t have any more x
    Sending love and hugs to you all with extras for Mum, Lynda and all in need. Take care xx

    1. Lilian, I forgot to say that some people are so thoughtless and or are stupid when it comes to the sea/rivers etc. It fine as long as they don’t cause any of our fantastic emergency devices to have to get them out of the trouble they put themselves in!!! Sorry for the rant, soapbox back under the counter x

  7. Hello Sandra and ladies,
    I’ve just lost a long comment because I typed it , but forgot to use Google, it’s somewhere out in cyberspace now.
    Interesting challenge for next week, looking forward to seeing everyone’s interpretations.
    HAPPY BIRTHDAY VAL hope you have had a lovely day today with family and friends. xx
    Hope you have had a good day, whatever you were doing .
    Take care everyone, sleep well, love Brenda xxx
