Good Morning Ladies,
Welcome November, the last month of Autumn taking us into Winter, although it seems too warm to even be thinking about Winter, we had a few cold days not long after we got back from holiday but it's been really mild for most of October. The garden seems confused, my Dahlia's and Chrysanthemums are still producing flowers, which seems really late, I am wondering if it will change when the bulbs come up too. I think they have forecast it getting a little bit colder with rain and high winds, why is it always windy on Bin Collection day, we have to put our plastic recycling in clear plastic bags, so you have to really weigh them down on Bin day, I don't understand why they can't go in a box like the Metal, Glass and Cardboard ! Paul's Mum just throws everything in one bag, which is much easier. What do you all have to do?
We have an exciting day today..... Our new mattress is arriving, new duvet and pillows too, fingers crossed they are as comfortable and almost 'life changing' as they make out on their website, I did loads of research and this mattress is top rated on many different surveys, you do have a full year to send it back if it's not for you, I will let you know!
Today's card is Karen's TicTacToe Challenge card that she made for last week's challenge, now I remember cropping it, I could have sworn I posted it but clearly I didn't, I am so sorry Karen, I always feel terrible when you ladies go to the trouble of making cards in time for the challenge and I miss them. The up side is that they get a whole blog post to itself, for me it is a bonus too as it's a day that I don't have to make a card for!!
''Here’s a challenge card I had to make a sympathy card for a neighbour
Die-cut - Traditional colour (purple for sympathy) - Flowers
I love your card, those muted jewel tones are so lovely and perfect for a Sympathy Card, I had no idea that Purple was a colour that represents Sympathy, so thank you so much for that information, it's always good to know these things, I think that Sympathy cards are hard to get right, you worry about the colour being too bright or too dark. Your card is the perfect balance. That striplet die is lovely, I like the font of your Sympathy stamp too. Thank you so much for taking part in the challenge every week my lovely XXX
Ladies I hope that you all enjoy this first day of November,
Sending my love and hugs to you all,
