Good Friday Greetings

 Good Friday Morning Ladies, 

The weather looks ok for the lovely long weekend, I am hoping that I feel up to sitting outside, hopefully able to sow some seeds if Paul sets me up a little area to sit. I have to say though that I feel like my brain isn't 'computing' properly, I expect its just tiredness but even writing a short blog post takes me twice as long, I have to keep re-reading what I wrote to check it a makes sense!!  (Well sort of)!   Our Soph tested positive yesterday,  which is a surprise as we are taking every precaution we can, oddly she was really poorly last week and I was convinced she had covid then, although she used a Nasal only test on Thursday and Monday abd both were negative.  I hope she doesn't become to unwell as she is a week out from her Final Uni deadline for her last ever assignment, I would be devastated if she was to ill to finish it in time. 

Come on ladies, entertain me with your Easter Plans?? .

Our Next Challenge 

Now I'm sure you will all understand that I just don't have the mental or physical capacity to think up and prepare inspiration for a new challenge for this coming week, so I will leave the Embossing Folder challenge running for another week, I think I will still share what you make fot this Sunday,  then any you make next week will be shown next Sunday.  I think that's the plan anyway, if not I will share something fascinating on Sunday and show ALL Embossing Folder cards next weekend.  

Our Sonia very kindly shared some Amazingly Inspirational Embossed cards with me so that I could use them today, you ladies are honestly THE most amazing,  supportive friends! ❤️ 

All three cards are gorgeous,  of course I really 😍 the Kraft card ones, that Butterfly 🦋 on that really deeply embossed background then finished by placing on a Kraft card base, its just perfect  

Then we have the stunning Christmas card, this card Sonia hss inked over the embossing, giving that lovely frosty effect. This card is finished with a Kraft card base, a lovely snowflake and that lovely Sentiment. 

Card 3 is a lovely, fun card, that bubble effect from the embossing folder looks like the bubbles in Teddy's Beer,  very clever Sonia, a perfect man card !!

Thank you so much Sonia for helping me out and inspiring us all with these stunning cards XXX 

Ladies,  I hope that you all have a lovely day, I hope that you all have a lovely Easter Weekend,

My Love and Hugs to all of you,

Sandra                                                                                  xxxxxx

    Oh Sandra, sorry to hear Sophie got it to. Wishing her better and hoping she manage to do the last at uni. You lady, just sit and rest and get your strength back.
    I'm for a long time since have got c&c on while having breakfast. It's Pretty Gets Gritty, I'm sure you know it. It's quite nice stamps and dies.Lynette Jasper making the cards. Still to much talking in the program 😣
