Good Friday Morning Ladies,
That week passed in a flash! I am glad we are at the end of it though, time to relax for the weekend, we have no plans other than we need to get started on Christmas shopping (no we are not ready or organised)! We are also still desperately trying to find a reasonably priced hotel for our London trip, I am so looking forward to our annual trip, I love having that couple of days to ourselves, however the cost of the hotel has doubled from the last time we went, we have been staying at the Travel Lodge in Covent Garden the last 3 times we went, it was around £90 to £110 per night, now the rooms start at £200 per night which is extortionate in my opinion, its the same standard, no frills hotel, not like we are swapping to the Ritz!!! I still think for us it's important to have that couple of days together though, so we are looking for alternatives, it's not that it's because it's December either as I checked several dates into next year and they were the same, I understand that they have utility bills increased the same as we have but doubling the cost seems a little steep. I will stop moaning now!
Our Next Challenge
We haven't had a 'Shape' based Challenge for a while, so for this week's Challenge I would like you to 'Choose a shape' it can be any shape you choose, anything that works for you. I think I am going to experiment with Triangles as I have a set of dies that I haven't used yet. I have some nice Star dies from AnneMarie Designs too. Don't forget Hearts, they are a shape too, Ovals also!! I don't mind what shape or shapes that you choose, you can choose multiples too, so don't think you have to choose one and stick to it. I only aim to give you a topic to encourage you to make a card, I certainly won't dictate how you create your cards, in fact I love seeing how you interpret the challenge!
I am as always looking forward to seeing what you create, seeing your designs is a huge highlight in my week.
Fingers crossed the rain has eased where you are, it has been non stop here the past couple of days, it was so heavy through the night, there will be flooding for sure!
I hope you have a lovely Friday (after you finish your usual Friday chores) having said that I love seeing my house all fresh and clean for the weekend.
Sending my love and hugs to all of you,
