Sonia's Sentiment Challenge


Good Friday Morning Ladies,

Woohoo thank goodness it's Friday!! As I said yesterday it has been a very long week, now that Paul works all week I really do appreciate the weekend.  Nothing much happened here yesterday after a busy day Wednesday, I had a very lazy morning mostly due to no sleep and a terrible headache, I think the headache was partly due to the weird pre-storm atmosphere to be honest.  As I am writing this it is so dark outside, I think we might get some heavy rain but the threat of a storm has passed.  I hope that the rain bought some of you a little relief. 

Maria I hope that you have a lovely time in Colchester and Norfolk, we used to holiday in Norfolk every year as children, Paul and I used to take our caravan to the Sandringham Estate in Norfolk with Matt and Becca when they were tiny, so many happy memories.

Your Next Challenge From Sonia

Sonia has very kindly chosen our next Challenge, which I am very grateful for x💓x.........

So for our next challenge Sonia has asked that we use the Sentiment as the main feature of the card.

Your sentiment can be Stamped, Die cut or Digital whichever you prefer.  The rest of the card can be decorated in anyway that you choose.

I am really looking forward to this challenge and  I hope that you all enjoy it too.

Thank you so much Sonia for choosing this weeks Challenge XXX

I hope that you all have a lovely relaxed weekend,

Love and hugs to all of you,

Sandra                                                                                                                                                      xxxxxx 


  1. Morning Ladies

    Sonia-great challenge and a lovely card as inspiration for us.

    Sandra-hopefully your headache has eased.
    We were meant to have thunderstorms Wednesday & Thursday but nothing happened. We’ve not had rain for week although I see next week we’re meant to have rain every day which is typical as I have a couple of days off!


  2. Morning Everyone
    What a good Challenge for next week.I don't think we have had this one before. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    We had an extremely dull/grey day yesterday so much so that the lights had to go on around 20.00hrs and we're heading for the longest day!

    Well you all know what I'll be up to today yes I'm 'swearing' so I'd better get a wriggle on as you all know how I 'love' Friday'

    The CAFE is OPEN so pop in.HUGS are on their way to you all.PLEASE TAKE CARE AND STAY SAFE.Have a good week-end.xxxx

  3. I love your card SONIA and a great idea for a challenge
    I hope the headache has eased SANDRA We’ve had rain rain and more rain It’s still so humid I hope the weekend brightens up a bit
    Enjoy your break MARIA
    Went for another eye test yesterday (less than 4weeks after last ine) as my sight was so blurred He explained that my diabetes control is now affecting it If too high etc etc etc So new prescription BUT I have another test in 3 weeks to see what sight is like then Ho hum
    Take care all xx

    1. Hopefully you're eyes are ok and it's only the weather's fault.Take care xx

  4. Morning ladies,

    Good idea for the challenge card Sonia.

    Very overcast today maybe we will get some more rain? The garden is very parched in places now the meadow has been cut down and the moles seem to have decamped back to Barrett's estate and the fields beyond.

    Off to buy Pete's flowers Lilies Roses and Gypsophila for his little space in the Garden of Rest. It is our 33rd Wedding Anniversary today so a quiet reflection of our wonderful, amazing and adventurous life together will be the order of the day.

    love 7 hugs
    Cheryl xxx

  5. Hi ladies,
    Great card Like the sentiment.
    Raining 🐱 and 🐕 here but going to see OH ex for a coffee so probably take a taxi. Happy Anniversary Brenda for yesterday,hope you had a lovely day. Thinking of you Cheryl, sending extra hugs for you.
    Have a nice day everyone 😊 hugs Maria Xxx

  6. Hello Sandra and ladies,

    Lovely card Sonia and a great idea for next weeks challenge, thinking cap on!

    Cheryl thinking of you on your 33rd wedding anniversary. Your life with Pete sounds blessed with happiness and beautiful memories. xx

    We celebrated our 60th anniversary yesterday, can’t believe where the time has gone, all the family are coming over tomorrow to celebrate with us. One small problem our oven which is 5 years old stopped working last Sunday, we rang Monday morning ( we have a cover plan) to get an engineer to come and fix it and were told someone would be here Friday (today) he rang about 9.39am and asked to confirm the error code displayed - his response was “oh that part is obsolete” !!!!
    Talk about spitting feathers. Now we have to wait until next Tuesday to see what the next step is. But we will cope with the help of M&S. We did try to get booked into a local restaurant but there maximum number is 10.

    Maria have a lovely break, it will do you both good after being stuck at home due to lockdown. xx

    Better get a wiggle on, take care and enjoy your day, love Brenda xxx

  7. Hi everyone
    Thank you for accepting my challenge 😊 I will look forward to seeing what you all create 😊😊
    Raining all day here, the roads are flooding! It does feel a bit fresher though so that’s one blessing.
    We’ve got a dog trainer coming this afternoon to come on a walk with us, and advise how we can get Barney to stop pulling. Fingers crossed, I’d so love to be able to take him for a walk, rather than him taking me! 😂
    Enjoy the rest of the day everyone. We’ll be getting a pizza in tonight and watching the England - Scotland game ⚽️
    Sending hugs to you all xxx
