Our Next Challenge


Good Friday Morning Ladies,

We have made it to the end of the second week of January,  Christmas seems forever ago though!  Have you got plans for the weekend? We are wanting  to go down to visit Paul's Mum but I need to be free of UTI before I set off on a long journey, especially as I don't drink as much when we are travelling as I don't like public toilets at the best of times but wouldn't want to go in one with my delicate Urinary tract.  So we will wait another week,  we werevdue to go around the 12th December but it snowed a lot and later that morning I was on phobe to 111 needing antibiotics!  So as soon as I am feeling better we will go. 

Our Next Challenge 

I have so many ideas buzzing around in my head I didn't know which one to go with first!!  If you have anything New you want to try let me know below please. 

For this week I have decided to go with either a 'Shades of One Colour ' or a 'Blended Background',   you can choose whichever you'd prefer or one of each if you like.  I have given examples of both above to inspire you.  
You could add anything to your background from flowers to silhouette stamps or die cuts.  

Remember you can make journal pages as well as cards. Or just keep your inked piece in an Album.

I hope that you all enjoy the challenge. 


I hope that you all have fun filled Friday 🤣😂

Sending love and hugs to all of you, 



  1. Morning from an extremely wet and windy Sheffieldd.
    We have rain most of yesterday but just after tea the wind really got into top gear and the rain became torrential. It's stayed like this all night and still going strong.

    Another week gone by with Jim having to go back to hospital on Wednesday as he had problems with his chest infection again. He was there all day and managed to get home late evening having had further tests done and another set of antibiotics for another five days so we'll not be going anyware at the moment.

    As you all know it will be a 'swear' word for me today and a delivery from Mr Tesco later in the day.

    HUGS are winging their way to you all.Have a good week-end. Take care and stay safe.xxxx

  2. I hope Nim feels better soon
    I think we all need a bit of sunshine to make us feel better and recover from all of these winter bugs I hope this course of antibiotics works SANDRA
    Great challenge I really need to create cards or something instead of doing the easy option on sitting in front of the tele and crochet!
    Out dancing tonight and we’re doing a dance workshop for a couple of hours tomorrow - my favourite Rueda and a new dance to us Kizomba
    Take care everyone xx

  3. Hi everyone and welcome to Mrs A, lovely to see you.
