My 3rd No Die card Challenge card


Good Morning Ladies, 

I hope today finds you well, yesterday was overcast and a bit blustery but we managed to get all of the tomato plants composted and get the french bean frames down and put away,  I have to say that my Marigolds are still bursting with every shade if orange you can imagine so I dead headed them and left them to continue brightening the border.

I had another fun afternoon crafting alongside Paul as he worked, we don't even chat that much as he could be in a meeting over skype or concentrating on something,  it's just lovely having him sat there. 

I stamped the Festive Foliage stamp onto Very Vintage card and heat embossed with Gold Embossing powder, I then coloured the image with Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Stampin Blends. I layered the piece onto an Old Olive card base and added some Cherry Cobbler/Gold Ribbon,  finishing with a double bow that I topped with a matching red flower and foliage. The sentiment I stamped and embossed in Gold and used a punch to cut it.
I tucked it under the flower yo finish the card.
I hope you like it.

Maria I hope you are feet up taking it easy after your busy day in London xxx

I hope that you all have a great day,

Love and hugs to all 



  1. Morning Everyone
    from an extremely windy start to our day here.

    A beautiful card SANDRA. Love everything about it.

    We had really high winds all day yesterday with some bouts of rain.
    I really must make a start on my CC for this week today.

    The cAFE of course is OPEN as always to anyone who wishes to pop in.
    HUGS are winging their way to you all.PLEASE TAKE CARE AND STAY SAFE.xxxx

  2. Beautiful card SANDRA OK I now do stamping occasionally but I would get in such a mess stamping that many times!
    OH came back from shopping to say that he’d booked our flu jabs So we’re done Have any of you heard about having a covid booster yet?
    My arm was mighty sore afterwards so I didn’t do any crafting
    Your day in London looked fun and at least you have your passport sorted It is amazing how many times we’re asked for photo id let alone travelling abroad
    Have a good day ladies Take care xx

    1. OH have a time tomorrow morning for a Covid booster jab, I didn't even know they started.
      Hope your arm feel better soon. xx

  3. Hi, dry at the moment, washing on the way.

    Sandra, love your card, the gold embossing is the making, I shall definitely dig out my embossing powders, of which I have quite a few, now to find them.

    We have our flu jab today, not heard anything about the COVID-19 booster yet, but I think the flu jab is more important at the moment. We usually have to wait till November, so luckily had a cancellation.

    Have some ironing to do first thing then going to start this weeks card.
    Hope you all have a good day, Lilian

  4. Hi ladies, hope you all are ok today but if you go outside ,hold on for it is very windy.

    Today's card is absolutely gorgeous. Love the embossing so will have a play this afternoon. Nice for you to have Paul at home for company even if you are not speaking ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜„
    Like I said to Karen so have my OH a booster jab tomorrow morning. They phoned him this morning to come in.
    Woke up this morning feeling like a truck had run over me ๐Ÿ˜‚
    could hardly walk first but got better even if I'm very tired. Had the nurse trying to get some blood from me, not easy at all, absolutely nothing from the arm at all so had to take it from my hand by another nurse. Will be bruised for a while but that nothing then the fibro pain so will go for a nap today I think. Had a nice breakfast in Ikea and bought a few little thing back home as you do ๐Ÿ˜
    Got my train ticket for next Tuesday, really looking for ward to see some of you ladies for a catch up, long due ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
    Hope you all have a good day whatever you are up to. Take care and hugs , Maria xx

  5. Hi everyone
    A beautiful card today, I love it ๐Ÿ˜Š
    Haven’t had chance to do any crafting this week, but have a couple of ideas for this weeks challenge.
    Got a long day at work tomorrow, after finishing my shift have got 2 hours of fire safety training! Oh well at least it’ll be done for another year.
    Maria, hope you’re having a restful day after your trip to London.
    Karen, we are waiting to hear from work about our covid booster jabs, the residents had theirs last week.
    Hope you’re all having a good day. Sending hugs to you all xxx

  6. Hi Sandra and all in the Cafe today. Wow what a gorgeous card you have got us to enjoy today. Love every bit of it my lovely๐Ÿฅฐ Glad to hear you had Paul’s company yesterday. You don’t need to talk do you. Just being together is the important part xx
    Maria, glad to hear you have your passport now. And enjoyed a lovely day out too. Paddington looks great sat eating his marmalade sandwich. I hope you aren’t in quite as much pain as you were earlier today xx
    Sending love and hugs to you all with extras for all in need. Take care xx

  7. Hello Sandra and ladies,

    Beautiful card Sandra the colour combination is lovely.
    It must be lovely crafting along at your desk with Paul working alongside you, you don’t need to talk, I find that silence very comfortable.

    We had our Covid 19 booster today. I had a text and emailed yesterday saying I could have it. Went online and was a to book for both of us. Which was good, still need the flu jab , our surgery usually have a few dates in Oct when they have a dedicated flu vaccination clinic. Must check that out because they usually contact us.

    Maria I hope you have recovered from all the excitement yesterday, take care.xx

    Take care everyone and stay safe and warm. Hugs Brenda xxx
