My Beautiful Birthday card from Karen


Good Friday Morning Ladies, 

How are you all this Friday morning?  I am glad it's Friday, Paul has been in the office every day this week and I have really missed him, so I am looking forward to spending the weekend with him.  We have nothing planned which is a good thing.  

Sue came over yesterday,  we had a lot to talk about as we hadn't sat and chatted for weeks, I actually didn't get any crafting done, I was putting things away and reorganising while Sue was making a Groovi card. We definitely put the world to rights I can tell you! 

Our Next Challenge 

This week we will continue with the same challenge as last week, get out all those products, E folders, stencils etc that you haven't used for a while!  I really enjoyed getting all my older bits out to play with, I hope you have too. 

Todays card is my Gorgeous Birthday card from Our Karen, it is made with one of my favourite Aall&Create stamps.  I absolutely love it Karen, thank you so much ❤️ 

I hope that you all have a lovely Friday,

Love and hugs,

Sandra                                                                                  xxxxxx 


  1. Thank you for showing my card
    I must have followed a Tracy or Janet Pring tutorial I love this stamp set too
    Have you seen their latest venture? Ephemera They are funny/quite cutting sentiments They are funny but are not for card making to friends in my opinion
    Had a lovely meal out last night The food was delicious The place was packed with everyone eating (bear in mind it’s a pub) and by 9pm we were the only ones left in the place It is obviously not a drinking hole like they used to be
    Today will be slower I might get to play this afternoon
    Take care everyone xx

  2. Hi everyone
    Love your pretty card from Karen 😍
    Glad you and Sue had a good day yesterday. There’s nothing better than having a good chat with a friend 😊
    Karen, I’ve seen the AALL new Ephemera, and I agree with you. I don’t think much of it is suitable for cards for friends. I watched one of their shows a couple of months back, which Leonie was demonstrating on, and they had some new sentiment strips, again I didn’t think many of them were suitable to be sending to friends - unless you’ve both got that type of sense of humour!
    I still haven’t done any crafting, so happy to be continuing with the challenge for another week 😊
    Have a good day everyone whatever you’re doing.
    Sending hugs to you all xxx

  3. Hi everyone
    Beautiful card from our Karen, like that stamp too.
    Glad you and Sue had a nice day together.
    Karen, glad you had a good time going out eating. So nice isn't not to have to cook at times. Have a good day.
    Sonia, have a good day of rest and maybe some crafting.
    It was so nice to get out for a bit yesterday but I had such a bad night with coughing so have absolutely no energy again.
    I played a little yesterday afternoon with some masks and pastes but had a real problem with it not going underneath so will see if I can rescue any of it to make a cc.
    Have a nice day everyone whatever you are up to. Many hugs xxx

  4. Hello all, a bit chilly today.
