Michele's Challenge


Good Friday Morning Ladies, 

Another Wet & Wild day here in Wiltshire, its getting a lot colder too, time to dig out the thermals I reckon.  I desperately need some new slippers, I have been wearing my Croc Flip-flops since March, they are the most comfortable piece of footwear I have ever owned,  you really don't feel them, I also feel like they cushion my feet as I walk very heavily. I am tempted to get the fur lined crocs as slippers but they are so bulky, i'm not sure if I would be tripping over them, we bought some for Lucy and she loves hers.  I really struggle to get socks on so if I don't have a nice warm pair of slippers I will struggle,  I have bad circulation in my right leg so my foot on that side is a pain to keep warm.  

Michele asked if she could set our next Challenge and I gladly accepted, so here it is....

Michele's Challenge 

Michele would like you to use 1 die/stamp set or Mask/ Embossing Folder to make a Christmas card and a Non Christmas (any occasion) card. 

Michele has shared an example, using one of her recent purchases....

I love the look of this die set Michele, the cards you have made a fantastic example. 
I will add photos of Michele's cards laid out flat....

Thanks Michele for setting this weeks challenge and for sharing these fantastic inspirational ideas with us.

I have a couple of ideas for this weeks challenge, I am looking forward to sitting and having a play.

I hope that you all have a lovely weekend,  

Love and hugs to all of you,

Sandra                                                                              xxxxxx
