Your Challenge Cards


Good Sunday Morning Ladies, 

I hope that you are all well, we didn't do anything too exciting yesterday,  just food shopping!  What did you all get up to? 

I phoned Sue on Friday to see how she was feeling and tentatively asked if she fancied coming to Newbury Stamperama with us today, to my delight she said yes!! 😊 I think the change of scenery will do her good and might even spark her craftiness up again. So that's what we are up to, the good thing is its only 35 miles from us so no long drive either. If any of you need anything just message me, I am happy to post it out to you. 

 Your Challenge Cards 


Karen's Description:

Thank you so much Karen for two fantastic Challenge cards,  that baby footprint embossing folder is so adorable, it work's so well with the Baby die cut. 
Your Christmas card has a lovely Clean and simple style, you can tell you have a new machine as the depth of that snow embossing folder is incredible.  That lovely curve die finishes it off perfectly too, you just can't beat Navy & White. 
Thanks again Karen XXX


Sonia's Description:

I’ve used a Tim Holtz stencil, inked with Speckled Egg distress oxide. One of Chloe’s Christmas Roses, and the sentiment from my stash stamped and embossed on a Spellbinders tag 😊

Such a pretty card Sonia,  I really love the soft green, such a pretty colour, that Tim Holtz stencil is beautiful too.
Thank you so much for taking part in this weeks challenge XXX 


Maria's Description:

The first one I made was used with the poppy metal stencil that both you and Lilian have, such a pretty stencil. I used DI/O to colouring it in.
unfortunately I have mislaid my  small stamps so wasn't sure what to 
put inside but hope you like it.
My second card I used the plastic stencil and a stamp inside that says
winter for me. Might do some more on them as snow or snowflakes
and glitter, not sure.

Oh Maria,  your cards are stunning,  you did an amazing job blending the ink through the stencil,  I think they are difficult to blend through because they are metal. I love the little scene that you have created through it too. 
Your second Bauble is beautiful too, I absolutely love the ice skating scene too.
Thank you so much for taking part my lovely XXX 


Ladies thank you so much for another fantastic display of cards. I love how you have all used different styles and techniques too. As always I am  so grateful XXX 

I hope you all have a lovely day, I get to spend today with my lovely friend Sue, plus we are craft shopping,  what could be better?!

Sending love and hugs to all of you,




  1. Love your cards ladies
    Have a smashing day at the show SANDRA and SUE
    Take care everyone xx

  2. Good morning ladies
    Lovely Sunday is back and so are the show of cards for the CC. I had fun playing with some of my new things and trying to get some colouring mix right, something I need to practise more of. Loving the cards Sandra,Karen and Sonia.
    I've been up since 5.30 and went to bed at 2m so can see a nap coming on later. Hoping tho to get out for a walk today, it's grey but dry at the moment so it would be nice. Need also to tidy up my crafting space I might find my missing stamps if I do
    Have a great time at the craft show Sandra and very glad to hear that Sue is going with you. Happy shopping, can't wait to see what you bought.
    Sending hugs to you all, have a nice day. Maria xx

  5. Hope Sandra and ladies,
    Lovely selection of challenge cards today ladies. I just wasn’t up to going into my craft room this week. Hopefully by next week I’ll be in a better place.

    I hope you and Sue had a lovely day ar the craft show, I’m sure Sue was pleased to go with you, even if she didn’t buy anything it was a great opportunity to talk, I always think chatting to a friend is one of the best pick me ups there is.
