Karen's "Anything for Christmas" challenge


Good Friday Morning Ladies,

Well yesterday turned out to be a very busy day for me, my lovely neighbour knocked the door and asked if I would like to go to village coffee morning with her, as Paul was at work.  It was so kind and thoughtful I didn't want to day no, although my heart was in a meltdown, I excused myself got myself together and grabbed my bag !  I got back at lunchtime, after an hour Sue arrived, then Paul arrived ready to collect us and Milo and we all went to  Carterton to the vets for his vaccination.  Paul dropped us at shops and we had time to look in Charity shops, two are really good rhe other id very expensive for a charity shop, Sue managed to get a couple of bargains including a book to make into an Art Journal!  We got back late afternoon and had a cuppa and chatted, before we knew it it was after 6pm !!  So a day that I normally dread turned into a lovely day, thanks Sue xxx

Our Next Challenge 

Karen kindly suggested a brilliant Challenge for next week, with the big day only 26 weeks or 184 sleeps away we really need to make a dent in our Christmas card list. 

With that in mind Karen has suggested "Anything for Christmas " as our next challenge, so you can create  whatever you like as long as its Christmas!  I'd like to make atleast 4 cards (fingers crossed). 

I am looking forward to this on, thanks so much Karen for the suggestion. XXX

I hope that you all have a great day, mine will be a quiet one after yesterday!,

Love and hugs to all of you,

Sandra                                                                                xxxxxx 


  1. Morning Everyone
    Well here we are at yet another 'swear' word day. They seem to come around faster each
    It's also Mr Tesco delivery day and I have started my three day prep ready for my CT scan first thing Monday morning. I have to take a 'potion' three times a day (today/tomorrow and Sunday with the last one Monday morning at breakfast time).
    It's going to be a busy week-end keeping to a timetable.

    Thank you KAREN for your Challenge suggestion. Thinking cap will go on after Monday.
    HUGS are on their way to you all. Have a good week-end whatever you all have planned.
