Your Next Challenge


Good Morning Ladies,

I hope that you are all well, what have you all got planned for the weekend?  I am hoping to go to Newbury to the Stamperama show on\ Sunday which I am quite excited about, I have almost forgotten what it's like to actually hold the craft products in your hand before buying them, we have the Range and Hobbycraft but to be perfectly honest with you The Range has gone right down hill, what it has is really dated and mostly only old Crafters Companion Stuff, Hobbycraft doesn't tend to stock the things we use regularly and the few bits they do have like Distress inks etc are really overpriced, if you have a decent Craft store local to you it must be a gift, sadly Val (Snazzy Studio) which was a lovely little craft shop that Sue and I discovered has closed now, although luckily Val lives close enough to me that I can ask her if she has what I need in stock and pop over and collect it, Infact I am doing that this afternoon, sadly Val isn't going to be able to get the exhibit at the Stamperama show as her Husband is poorly. 

Your Next Challenge 

I asked in our chat group if anyone had any preference for this weeks challenge,  Lilian suggested a TicTacToe or Christmas.  I thought that this TicTacToe worked well for Christmas so is the best of both worlds, of course it works for any occasion too. Its one we haven't seen before too.  I can't wait to see what you all create. 

I hope that you all have a lovely day,

Love and hugs to all of you,

Sandra                                                                                  xxxxxx 


  1. I think this Tic Tac Toe will work really well for Christmas
    I hope you can make it to Newbury I’m sure you’ll have fun It will like being a child in a sweet shop I certainly enjoy my trips to CVC
    On the spur of the moment we went dancing again last night It was a bit of a rush fitting in a LFT If anything I’m glad it’s making OH do them as he’s the one out shopping etc
    Out again tonight as daughter is teaching
    Take care everyone xxx

    1. Sorry ,what is LFT meaning here ? Have fun going dancing x

  2. Morning Everyone
    A really good Challenge for this next week.

    I'm sorry SANDRA but I cannot join in this week's Challenge. This last week has really been an upside down sort of week and I'm afraid that my crafting has had to take a back seat.
    I sure I can do something for next week when I'm back.

    Have a good Craft Buying Trip and make sure Paul has his eyes

    HUGS are on their way to you all with loads of extras for Dear Friends not up to the mark.

  3. Hello All, wet and blowy here today.

    Good tic tac toe for this week, nice broad range of pics to choose from.

    Janet hope the trip home goes well, time seems to have flown by since you set off for France.

    Will have to wait until tomorrow before I can do a card for this weeks challenge, determined to put something together.

    Have a nice day, Sandra I bet you are really excited to be going to the Newbury show, spend spend spend, you only go once. Cheers all, Lilian

  4. Hi everyone
    If you manage to get to Newbury on Sunday, I wish you a wonderful day seeing all crafting items in life again. It's such a good feeling.
    Tic,Tac, Toe looks like a good grid. Will do my best to join in.
    Sending special hugs for our Lilian,Lynda and Sue.
    Have a good day. Hugs Maria xx

  5. Hi everyone
    Great tic tac toe for next week, lots of options 😊
    Enjoy Stamperama 😊 I would’ve probably gone too if I wasn’t working! So want to get back to a proper craft show. I agree with you about The Range and Hobbycraft, both very disappointing.
    Enjoy the rest of the day everyone. Sending hugs to you all xxx
