Good Sunday Morning Ladies,
How are we all today? We had a bit of a lazy day yesterday, didn't really acheive anything other than Paul (with a little help from me) put a protective film on the stairs to try and stop Bella scrapping at the stair carpet, it was a bit of a faff but it's down now. We did a couple of garden jobs but that was it really, we ordered a few bits for holiday, we will need face masks (the medical ones are required for some places in France and some shops etc in Spain).
We also need little stickers to change the direction of the headlights beam.
Karen: what I meant by our holiday being more relaxing is the fact that we don't have to be ready for meal at certain times, so for instance if we are still on the beach at 6pm we don't have to get back to get ready for dinner, likewise with lunch etc, its the 'not needing a watch ' part that i was referring to. Doing things entirely at our own pace. We have done package holidays before when kids were young and found it exhausting. The other hugely stressful thing for me would be getting on and off the plane as I hate being made a fuss of. I hope that explains what I meant xxx
Gina: I hope you are feeling better my lovely, are you still testing positive?? Sending hugs xxx
Now lets have a look at what you made for this weeks challenge....
Your Challenge Cards
Hi, here is my card for this weeks challenge. I used an AALL stamp, it’s large so just used part.
Lilian used Categories:
Lilian the colours you have achieved on your card are simply stunning, the depth of that blue is just so beautiful 😍 That Aall&Create create stamp is gorgeous too. Thank you so much for managing to fit a card in after your very busy week XXX
My first card is made using LABLANCHE kit 'LILAC' tic tac - TAG/BIRTHDAY/FAV COLOUR LILAC.
My second card is made using TONIC MIRROR CARD/VINTAGE IMAGE/sorry I cannot remember the name of the Company my DIE Cut came from.
Tic tac-CIRCLE/DIE CUT/FAV COLOUR BLUE.
Two fantastic cards Janet, thank you so much for taking part. I know that you have had such a frustrating week waiting for test results so that you can go to Marigny, you may have been relieved in one way as Dover had 6 mile queues up to the motorway as it was (a) the start of school holidays and (b) Port of Dover was not prepared for number of tourists, now every passport HAS to be stamped and French Border agency only provided 2 staff members out of 8, so obviously that was a huge factor in the hold up, people missed their ferry and up to 4 after!! So fingers crossed they will have it sorted before you go.
Thank you for 2 lovely cards XXX
A very simple card for this week’s challenge
Tag-die cut-birthday theme
Simple but effective Karen, I love your tags, such a fun idea for a card. Thank you so much for making time to take part XXX
I used background stamp, die cutting, birthday theme. Again I’ve used an AALL and Create stamp and Tim Holtz butterfly. The sentiment is from The Stamp Market.
I used stencil, circle, die cutting. I used an AALL and create stencil, and part of one of their stamps for the circle. The butterfly is Tim Holtz as well as the sentiment.
Two gorgeous cards Sonia, I love how you have used the Aall&Create stamp on your first card. That stencil on your second card is stunning, the Tim Holtz butterfly is the perfect embellishment.
Thank you so much for taking part in this weeks challenge my lovely XXX
