Your Challenge projects


Good Sunday Morning Ladies,

I hope today finds you well, I am writing this at 11pm Saturday night, the house has just calmed down, I have had a hugely busy day, it was so lovely having everyone around the table together, reminding us all of Christmases years ago.  The house just came to life, people having conversations in every room, I loved it.   I will say that after my sister leaves today we will be having a very relaxed day.  

Let's have a look at what you have been making...


I made these over 30 years ago!

Karen's Description:
Here are some photos of makes Some are very recent and some are exceptionally old!

Karen your Crocheted Critters are gorgeous, the old knitted  Santa and Angel  are so adorable.  The green dinosaur is my favourite.  Can you imagine how much money you have made for charity over the years?! 
Thank you so much sharing XXX


Sonia's Description:

This year I decided to make cards for my work colleagues - 9 in total. I’ve used The Stamp Market snowflake background and snowflake dies. The sentiment is from Chloe’s. I’ve used purple as that is the colour of our work uniform and we are know as the ‘Purple Angels’ ☺️

Sonia this card is absolutely gorgeous,  those die cut snowflakes work perfectly together and you have matched them perfectly with that Embossing folder. Your colleagues will love them, thank you so much for taking part XXX 


Janet's Description:

The box was made us TONIC DIES.The base card and mirror card is also TONIC.

The money wallet was also made using TONIC DIES which were released some years ago for their Christmas dies. I used TONIC mirror card on this too.

Janet I absolutely love those Tonic Hexagon boxes, I keep looking for them on the selling pages. they are so beautifully detailed.  I love your sewing themed  one too, I made the one you sent me into a sewing box fir Becca.  
Your card is so beautifully detailled, so festive looking with the foiled card. 
Thank you so much for sharing with them with us XXX


Lilian's Description:

Hi hope you are feeling better. Here is my card for this weeks challenge. I’m sorry I can’t remember where all of the things came from; the swirls are stamping up. The numbers I had when I used to use my big shot. Hope you are having a lovely time with your family. Lilian

Oh what a lovely idea for a New Year card Lilian, New Year and Easter are the only occasions I haven't made cards for.  I love that Embossing folder too.  Thank you so much for inspiring me XXX

Ladies thank you so very much for sharing your crafty projects today.  For those of you that don't see all of the items you sent to me, I have saved some for next week,  I hope you don't mind xxx 

Sending love and hugs to all of you,



  1. Morning Everyone
    What a fantastic array of Craftiness this week.
    Many different crafts all bringing a smile to start the day.

    We had quite a bit of rain yesterday afternoon and the temp rose resulting in a lot of the white stuff has gone.

    Jim's Nephew and his Daughter have arrived so we're off to have a meet/catch up with loads of coffee this morning.

    HUGS are on their way to you all.Please take care and stay safe.xxxx

    Last night was brilliant If their had been a prize for Great Gatsby costumes we would have won Even if I say it myself we looked amazing and I was surprised to see that not many had dressed up
    It was lovely seeing Salsa friends at a non Salsa event
    After a late night and hardly any sleep I am definitely having a rest day!
    Take care everyone xx

  4. Hi everyone
    Lovely things on show this morning. Well done ladies.
    Janet, have a great time with the family.
    Karen, glad to hear you had a good time doing great Gatsby.
    Sonia, have you started your new job yet or is that later in the new year ? cuddles for Barney x
    Lilian, hope you are getting there, at least before next weekend. Take care.
    Raining outside but cold and it will freeze again tonight so I can see us having a ice rink outside tomorrow when we like to go to Lidl so have to wait and see how it goes. Be careful all i you are going out anywhere. Many warm hugs to you all xxx

  5. Hi Sandra and all looking in today.
    Sorry I haven’t been in over the last three days. They have whizzed by with shopping and other jobs with Pop and having the three younger grandchildren over to stay since early yesterday so they could decorate the tree and their own Christmas cakes. I’m ready for a nap now 🥰 I will send photos of their work to share if you want to Sandra.
    I’m glad you had a lovely family time. It’s so nice when the house is full. We all miss spending Boxing Day with Chris’s Mum who had 26 children and grandchildren, then 14 steps. Everyone made it a date not to be missed. She lived in a small 2 bedroom bungalow but wonderful memories were made each year, never to be forgotten 😍😍😍
    I hope you all stay warm. It has warmed up here, all icy patches melted and meant to stay warmer but wet now. Love to you all. Take care xx

  6. Hello Sandra and ladies,
    I hope you have had a relaxing day today after all the excitement yesterday, it must have been lovely to catch up with your sisters.
    What a lovely selection of cards ladies and Karen’s critters are just gorgeous, I’m sure they will (or have gone) go to good homes where they will be treasured and loved..
    Janet I’m sure both you and Jim enjoyed the meet up with Jim’s nephew and his daughter. What a lovely pre Christmas treat.
    Sending love and hugs to everyone, take care and stay safe.Brenda xxx

  7. Hi, it’s late again, not sure what’s the matter with my brain these days.
    Love all the makes today, especially Karen animals and I really love Father Christmas and the little angel.

    Hope you are not too exhausted after yesterday, Karen would love to see o pic of your costumes.

    Have a good night all. Lilian
