Georgina 's Christmas Challenge card


Good Morning Ladies,  

It barely seems a couple days that I was preparing myself to go to the village coffee morning wuthout Paul,  thanks to my lovely neighbour Diana, who very kindly offered to wheel me round, you ladies know that for me to go anywhere without Paul or the girls or Sue is a huge thing, I was a stressy mess, anxiety through the roof, but I did it, I felt at times like I wasn't 'in the room', it was like I was watching myself sitting there, very odd.  Diana has asked me to go again tomorrow,  Paul is home which is a bit more comforting, knowing he is just around the corner!  So I might just go, see how I feel at 9.45am. 

Today's card is one that the lovely Georgina has shared to inspire us for this weeks Christmas Challenge.  Georgina made it with John Lockwood's Christmas Tree die set, I have to say that I hadn't seen that Christmas tree die before and I really like it, I liked the one he launched last weekend too. Georgina has die cut on gold and teamed it with black which really makes the Gold pop!  

I love your design Georgina, thanks so much for sharing it with us. XXX 

Ladies I hope you all have a lovely Thursday,  mine will NOT be spent doing Housework, it's all done, I NEED to sit and do some crafting,  I don't remember when I last sat and just played with my craft stash!! 

Sending my love and hugs to all of you,

Sandra xxxxxx 


  1. Morning Everyone
    What a gorgeous card to start the day. Welcome Georgina and thank you. Black and Gold always say 'class' and I have to say it's the first time I have seen a die I like from 'John Lockwood'.

    It's my day for my hairdresser to come so I shall feel a little light headed by teatime. Have a lovely time at the coffee morning SANDRA.

    The CAFE is of course OPEN for anyone who wishes to pop in. The cake and biscuit tins are full so help yourselves.
    HUGS are on their way to you all. Please take care and stay safe.xxxx

  2. Hello Georgina and what a beautiful card I had gone off JL dies but you’ve made me change my mind a little
    I really hope you enjoy the coffee morning and the more you go the less stressful it’ll become It will give you the chance to meet with others from the village too Diana sounds like a lovely lady and if she didn’t want to do she wouldn’t have asked Relax and enjoy
    We’re out to lunch today with OH’s sister She wants to inspect the garden! And bring over some more plants
    Have a lovely day ladies xxx

  3. Hi everyone.
    Oh I love your card Georgina, very stunning in gold and black and JL x-mas tree die is lovely.
    Sandra, I hope you have a lovely time out with Diana and like Karen says, the more you do it, it will get easier. Just enjoy yourself.
    Janet, like you I will feel a bit light headed by tonight but I only going to snip the fringe hihihi Hope you have a nice day.
    Karen, have a nice lunch out with SIL. We are seeing mine next Tuesday so Monday it is a big clean and downstairs loo is out of bound hihi
    Brenda, hope you had a better night. It wasn't so hot anymore. Take it easy. Many hugs to you both xx
    Lilian, how is your back holding up ? are your new meds better for you ? Hope the weather down in Cornwall is okay.
    Cheryl. have not seen you lately. Hope you are alright and just busy. Love to see what you making.
    Sonia, how is Barney ? He looked gorgeous in his new hair cut <3
    I'm in the garage today. So much stuff everywhere. Son still got loads of tools and machines and planting pots that he will take with when they have settled down. Don't think they know what they want really so could take some time/years. We are doing a skip run tomorrow, here we have to make an appointment and you got 15 minutes to empty the car. Think we have another one next week. Best get back to it and then I hope to make some cards this afternoon unless I fall a sleep like yesterday....
    Have a nice day everyone. Many hugs to you all xxx
