Cards – challenges and favourites

Happy Monday dear crafty friends.  I am slowly getting back into posting as its only two weeks since my last post.  Not as regular as I would like but better than I have been in the last few months.I will start with the last two weekly challenges.

Week 20 was a shaped or Fancy folded Christmas card, for which I made these two.   I was asked if I had ever won anything in the challenges.  So just in case anyone else has wondered that too then the answer is No.  These challenges are just for fun amongst the friends in our group and they are meant as a challenge to ourselves.  It is completely up to us to choose if we join in or not and so there are no prizes, just the joy of sharing with each other.

Week 21 was food or drink and I chose to do this fat cat with his pudding, and it looks like its not his first.WK 21           This weeks challenge is an all white Christmas Card, but I haven’t made mine yet.

Now for some of my favourites. I will start with this which is for my neighbours 65th birthday which is not until next weekend but she doesn’t get my blog so its safe to share.  Her daughters were taking her for afternoon tea at the famous Ritz Hotel in London, but of course that was cancelled because of the Corona Virus.  However it was my inspiration for this card.                                                                             For Elaine next door

This card was for my friend Karen who moved home last week.For Paul and Karen Fitzpatric

The following were my top three choice.33 FOR CHRIS WHEATLY536 for Oscar

My final selection are just cards I really like but I will put them together in groups and stop chattering so you may browse in peace.



37A SHIONA I wonder if you can guess who this last one was for?

I do hope you enjoyed looking at some of the cards I have made.  I would really love to hear from you if you have a minute or two to leave a comment and I will always reply if possible to do so.  If you don’t have a blog you may still leave a comment by logging into your google account and though I have never tried it I am told you can use your Facebook account too if you wish. If you try it please let me know if you can.

I shall be back next Sunday with  another update on The Garden Alphabet.  It seems impossible that its already over two weeks since the last Sal Sunday update, but I am pleased with the progress I have made so far and may even manage another leaf on the border before I need to take my  next picture to post for you all to see.

Hope you are all staying safe in these strange times.  As always I enclose hugs for those that may want or need them.  So until Sundays its

Hugs from me,

I am one of those people who need to have busy hands so whether its stitching or papercrafting, I am always doing something. I also love being in the garden, though hubby does most of the work there these days.

    I really do enjoy browsing through your cards Helen, they give me so many ideas for how I can recycle my cards too! Looking forward to next weekend’s SAL post, I need to put some time in on my project before then!
