My Beautiful Birthday Card from Sonia


Good Monday Morning, 

I hope that you all had  a lovely weekend,  the weather wasn't too bad here, we were blessed with some lovely sunshine, which makes everything feel better.   We didn't leave the house/garden which was lovely for a change. We both needed some time doing nothing but relaxing. 

Having said that I spent most of the afternoon faffing about with a card I have been asked to make combining New Home with New Baby, I sat fussy cutting tiny baby clothes and even tinier clothes pegs!  By 9.30 I gave up, trying to find the perfect pastel pink and then a perfect skin tone became too frustrating, so I called it a day, I have most of the elements cut and ready to go, I just need to create a card base and a box to fit it in!  

So no challenge card from me today, something even better though!!! 

My gorgeous Birthday card made for me by our lovely Sonia, I adore the Anne Marie Designs papers collection and the colours are my favourite 😍.  Thank you so much my lovely friend,  I love my card ❤️ XXX

Another day at the craft desk for me, I hope you have a lovely Monday,

Love and hugs to all,

Sandra xxx


  1. Beautiful card Sonia I really like that dusky/pastel shade of green I tend to shy away from greens I think it’s because they were the colours of my school uniform!
    The Kizomba workshop was great fun There were quite a defeat dancers from the Salsa world which was lovely to see and dance with familiar faces But as Salsa dancers it made it twice as hard for us to learn the dance as it is so different
    Out again tonight Whilst the hips and knees can take it I’m not going to pass it up
    Take care everyone xx

  2. Hi everyone
    Thank you for sharing my card. I’m glad you like it 🥰
    I’ve got my fingers crossed for you that you get the card made. It’s frustrating when you know what you want to do but it doesn’t go as planned. I’m sure that whatever you make will be beautiful 😊
    Karen, glad you enjoyed the workshop. Enjoy tonight too 😊
    Have a lovely day everyone
    Sending hugs to you all xxx

  3. Hello All, sunny and warm here today.
    Sonia love your card you sent to Sandra for her Birthday.
    Saw the nurse this morning, she very pleased my ulcer on my legs.
    She also wants me to have a Doppler test done, apparently there is a waiting list.

    Hoping you all have a good after noon. Lilian
