Another Card that works for Men


Good Morning Ladies,

Another frosty morning  yesterday,  a gloriously sunny day though, its so nice to have all the windows open and have the fresh air through the house!  

I had such a lovely day yesterday,  Sonia came over, it was touch and go on Monday whether she would make it, I had everything crossed!!  We had lovely day, talked nonstop (obviously) then we had some lunch, after that we got down to some crafting,  taking a break for another cuppa and a delicious cake (thank you for the selection,  the girls said thank you too) we were mostly playing with our Spellbinders foil plates, we die manage some perfect pieces, Sonia did some incredible foiling onto Kraft card.  Sadly all too soon it was time for her to leave ๐Ÿ˜ช.  The time absolutely flew by!  But thank you so much my lovely for driving over, I really do appreciate it and loved every minute ❤️. 

Today's card was a quick one, I made it after Sonia left.

I used a piece of dsp and Crumb cake card to cut a rectangular,  I then die cut the letters of happy out of the different shades of green that feature in that dsp.  I added some coordinating ribbon to place the sentiment on.   A real quicky that fits the Challenge.

Janet I hope you had more success on the phone today, I also hope you got to go to K & N XXX 

Sending love and hugs to all of you, 

Sandra                                                                    xxxxxx 


  1. morning Everyone
    Yesterday was one of those days I don't want to replay.
    I could only leave a message at the hospital dept in the morning they did ring back late afternoon but were unable to give me the results and I have to ring again this morning. I didn't get to K&N as I had an angina attack which put me off my feet for the rest of the day.
    I'm hoping for a better day today.

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

    1. Sorry to hear this Janet, hope you’re ok. Take it easy xx

    2. So sorry for you Janet. Hope you had a better day. Do take care. Hugs x

    3. Hi Janet. I hope you are feeling much better today xx

  2. Hi everyone
    Love your card today, the colour combo is fabulous ๐Ÿ˜
    I had the best day too yesterday. Thank you so much ๐Ÿ˜˜ Chatting away, crafting, and the lovely lunch was wonderful. It was lovely to meet Sophie, Bella and Milo and see Paul again too ๐Ÿฅฐ
    Janet, I hope you managed to get through to the hospital, and made it to K&N.
    Maria, glad you were able to go out and get some shopping. Like you I can’t resist a pudding ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Karen, hope the internet is all sorted out now. Don’t think we realise how much we rely on it until it goes down!
    Brenda, hope you’re ok, will be thinking of you tomorrow.
    Lilian, hope you’re ok and managed to get some sleep last night.
    Pat, glad you had a lovely day with friends yesterday, and were able to sit outside in the sun.
    Hope you’re all keeping well. Have a good day
    Sending hugs to you all xxx

  3. Internet seems OK ๐Ÿคž
    Love the card I hadn’t realised that it was a paper I thought you’d torn strips of the paper
    How lovely that Sonia could come over I wish we all lived closer together so that we could do this Maybe a Watford meet up in May …
    I hope things get sorted today Janet
    Take care everyone xx

  4. Hello Sandra,
    Almost ready to go for my Marsden appointment, so I thought I would quickly look in as I don’t expect to be home until early evening.
    Sonia So pleased you managed to meet up with Sandra Paul and the family. What a lovely day you had. I too wish we all lived closer and we could meet up.
    Janet wising you luck sorting out your hospital results. xx
    Take care everyone, hugs Brenda xxx

    1. Whoops almost forgot why I dropped in, Sandra I love you quick card ❤️ xx

    2. Hi Brenda, hoping today wasn't too much and you are home now resting. Take care, hugs x

  5. Hi everyone
    Great card Sandra. Like the colour ๐Ÿ˜Š
    Went out with OH for his hospital appointment this morning so then we ended up having brunch out. Isn't fun to getting older, all these people you get to know, well they are meant to know everything about you but sometimes I wonder if they even have looked on the screen before you arrive at least one hour late because they are running late. My dad went to see his diabetic nurse. He got booked in, went and sat down. After a hour he went to check for her because she didn't call him, the answer was...oh dear, she's not here today, she's I'll. Well if I know my dad, they got a n earful.
    Sorry babbling away here....
    I wish everyone a good night, better night. Many hugs to you all, ๐Ÿค— xxx

  6. Hi Sandra and all looking in.
    How lovely that you and Sonia got to spend the day together. And I love the quick card you made. Adding that bit of gauze type strip behind the ribbon makes a more masculine finishing touch than ribbon alone. I always seem to end up using some sort of twine on men’s cards so I will try and remember this look xx
    Sonia, now you have driven to Sandra’s once I hope if you are like me you will be able to relax and do the journey much more often. It’s always so much better crafting with your friends isn’t it ๐Ÿฅฐxx
    Brenda, I have been thinking of you and hope you are gone safe snd sound today xx
    Maria, how rude that your Dad wasn’t told of the cancelled appointment! Hope you are feeling a bit better than you have lately xx
    I’m wishing you all a goodnight and hope you wake up feeling refreshed in the morning. If only that were to be the case!
    Sending hugs to you all. Take carexx

  7. Hi, so cold again.
    Sandra love your card today. Not crafting at the moment, seem to have lost all my mojo .
    Big hugs to all, Lilian.
