Sentiment time

 Morning all,

Can you believe it's the 1st May? Crazy how time flies. The 1st means it's time for a new challenge theme for 'Sparkles Christmas challenge' and it's my turn to choose:

'Christmas Sentiments'

So I went all out using: a freebie Altenew Christmas stamp diagonally, Clearly Besotted sentiments too, Altenew alphabet dies for Merry and some Polkadoodles bow and Santa images. I had great fun creating this card.

Why not get ahead and join in with our monthly challenge to get prepared for the C word.
Challenges:

Hope you're all enjoying your weekend. Thank you for your lovely comments, it means the world to me.

All going okay here. Had a nice week - spent time with my daughter Shannen(shopping and lunch), cinema with a friend then a meal out then hairdressers on Friday and in the garden planting yesterday. Busy week so I'm going to have a few quieter days.  Take care of yourselves.

Big hugs Debbie xx

Let's see some fun card folds

 Hello all,

 It's the 1st April 2022 today so time for a new challenge over at 

Sparkles Christmas Challenge

The theme is 'Fun Folds' has been chosen by Sue.

I wanted to try a different fold for this challenge but it beat me this time. My crafty mojo or my brain just wouldn't come together but I managed to make something so it turned out okay ... I used some Hunkydory goodies from the Christmas magazine bought in December last year I think.

So why not get ahead with your Christmas cards and join in with us - even if it's 1 or 2 a month it all helps. It sure helps me...

Thank you for visiting and for your lovely comments. My new glasses are tickety boo so I'm happy. Take care everyone.

Big hugs Debs x

Apologies for not being around in blog land this month. I went down with Covid on the 3rd January, needed steroids for my asthma, antibiotics for a water infection the week later then docs again this week for antibiotics and steroids as my asthma still wasn't improving. this weekend is the first time I've felt like my old self. Phew what a month eh.
Hope you are all keeping safe and looking after yourselves.

Thank you for popping by and leaving such lovely comments. It's been a busy month with an appointment each week, hopefully after this month I should get a break from them. It's just how they've landed. My yearly Mammagram was all clear so that's a bonus . I've also been to the theatre to see Dirty Dancing, it was amazing but very busy. 

Hugs Debbie xx
