CCC Friendly Challenge - Carol Singers


Hi everyone! today is our fortnightly friendly challenge with our Christmas Club and it's Sue P's turn http://susiesplanet.blogspot.co.uk/ and she has chosen carol singers. If you want to peruse.....big word for me on a Sunday lol......all the other girls work their blogs are at the left side of my blog....and there will be some gorgeous stuff!!! Well yesterday was fun the doctor had given me 'bombs' to take for my chest infection so that has almost gone and my crafty club I go to on a Monday were all going to the Harrogate craft fair..soooooo the eldest grandson stepped in to 'babysit' the hubster and I went in our car instead of the coach with all the girls just in case I was needed quickly at home. I had a great day it was just nice to get out after all the weeks of stress and just chill and have a laugh with the girls and of course buy some crafty goodies. I bumped into Carole http://cjpcraft.blogspot.co.uk/ she is a former work colleague and it was so nice to see her but as she said we are crafting buddies now LOL
It wasn't as busy as it normally is and lots of exhibitors that usually go were not there but I got everything I needed and some extra 'bits' I would like to thank my crafty bud and friend Jayne for keeping me company in the car and all the girls for making it a great day!!! I will be round all your blogs soon TFL and lots and lots of huggles xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Sue xxxxxxxxxxxx

  5. Glad you enjoyed your well deserved day out and spending spree Sue, nothing like a bit of retail therapy to boost the morale. Your card is fab and the Tiddly Inks image is a popular one with the CCC girls this time. Love the music backing papers and pearl dots.

    what a really superb creation. Love it.

    It does make sense to get a little bit of you time, and then it refreshes the batteries so to speak.

  7. A day out was just what you needed Sue and it sounds like you had fun!! Love your card, carol singing takes me back to my Young Farmers days when we used to get transported around in a cattle trailer getting more and more inebriated as the evening went on...those were the days!! xx
