A Beautiful Challenge card from Karen


Good Morning Ladies, 

Just a super quick post today as I just don't have the energy to even think what to write.  I wouldn't wish this virus on my worst enemy,  Paul is doing Ok, he seems to have had a mild dose so far, although he is the last person to admit thathe is feeling rough.  I am going from being so hot and sweaty,  I spent the whole night on top of bed as i couldn't even bare the sheet on me to having goosepimples that were so painful, they felt like burning all over my body even my hair folicles burnt but at the same time I was shivering uncontrollably and couldn't get warm, it's horrendous,  my whole body is so sore.  Hopefully today will ve a better day. 

Karen very kindly made a card for me to share today, it is beautiful,  I love that sentiment, the script is stunning. 

Karen's Description:

It’s a take on what I saw at the workshop 

Daisy B sentiment 

Honey Doo splats in Kitsch Flamingo and Seedless Preserve A few little splatters with a paint brush and Seedless Preserve

Embossed with Sue W Swirling hearts

Edged with a pink/mauve Sharpie


Thank you so much Karen, I love this card, the splats look like they are part of the stamp. The stamp works perfectly with that embossing folder. XXX 

Ladies I hope you have a good day, 

Love and hugs to all of you,

Sandra                                                                                  xxxxxx


  1. Morning Everyone
    A beautiful card KAREN. That background is just gorgeous and really makes the card.

    Well I managed to get the ferry booked yesterday and now I have to sort out our overnight in Calais.
    I also need to look at this week's Challenge. Not quite sure which will be the easiest.

    SANDRA - I hope you have a better day.

    The CAFE is OPEN for all who wish to visit.
    HUGS on their way to you all with loads and loads extra for Dear Friends not feeling up to par.

  2. I so hope you feel a bit better today and you’re very welcome showing my card I think I will get an awful lot of use out of this stamp as a focal element and insert
    We might be looking after the boys tonight It all depends if daughter’s partner will be able to escape work early enough Other than that we don’t have anything planned I wonder if there’s any good tele on tonight? Take care everyone xx

  3. Hello Sandra and everyone,
    I hope you managed to get some sleep last night, you must be feeling exhausted after the previous night spent in such pain and discomfort, this virus has certainly hit you at full force, please take care and rest as much as you can. You are in my thoughts and prayers xxx
