Gorgeous Gingham and Perfect Plaid

 Hello Friends. I am back to work today after being on annual leave last week....booooo!!

But I'm here to let you know that the new challenge is starting at The Cutie Pie Challenge...Yay!!

We have a great theme for you this week, Gorgeous Gingham and Perfect Plaid and this is what I did.

I used the Shruggers from our sponsor...aren't they cute...the messages came with them too!!

I used Promarkers to colour them to match the gingham papers that , I believe, are Doodlebug Designs. 

It was nice to spend the last week at home. Although necessary, it was rather nice not to have to do any admin sessions at the ongoing covid Clinics. We did a lot of gardening, between torrential rain and gales and even went "out, out" for a bacon roll and slice of cake. I hope you are all managing to find enjoyment in the outside world once more.

See you soon xx

You do realise I have constant visions of that Fairy dance don't you Sarah, in my day things were rather more sedate, but by the time the children started, well let's just say the weddings of a couple of them were memorable.

Fun cards today.

Two fun CAS cards Sarah, not heard of that particular designer before.
I think May has morphed into April as we have had nothing but sunshine and showers for a week and more to come. Still I managed to get the OH to bring me some v well rotted cow muck from the pile he was working on, so it should keep all this moisture in the soil! :)

Hi Sarah, how nice you remember me! It's been soooo long since I blogged or made cards I thought I'd be anon for ages.

Your cards are super cute - love the kids and the papers are perfect.

Thanks for the kind comments on my blog as well, it's always appreciated.

Hi Sarah

Two great cards and the character's expressions match the sentiments perfectly.

Hope your week back at work hasn't been too stressful. You must be very busy constantly!

Lena said...

These are so awesome! I need a few of these! Especially as I get older, I tend to forget more. I blame it on this whole virus thing. It's so easy to lose track of time when every day seems the same :-) That's my story and I'm sticking to it :-)
