Hello everyone out there in blogland.  Just come back from swimming (second time this week - woo hoo) and I managed 40 lengths - not bad considering I've been out of action for 6 weeks!!!    Anyway now that I'm feeling so chuffed with myself, I ought to post my reminder card for the CCAYR challenge this month.   I decided to use this lovely robin image that I've either bought or won (sorry I can't remember which and the ref number doesn't give me a clue as to where it's from - if anyone knows please tell me!).


7" x 7" white card blank - Anna Marie Designs
Image - Robin on Fence Post (sorry I don't know who designed this)
Dovecraft - 'Glad Tidings' 8" x 8" paper pad
Die-namics Dies - Wonky Stitched Rectangle die
Sweet Dixi Dies - Holly and Star corner die 
Joanna Sheen Signature Dies - Mini Ivy (mirrored pairs) flourish dies
Crafters' Companion - 'Festive Wonder' clear stamp set

 We'd love you to join in - definitely well worth taking part for the chance to win this great prize (pictured below).

I hope you can enter our CCAYR challenge this month, 'cos I'm such a cheerful little soul I really ought to remind you that there's only 5 months to Christmas!  

Anyway those 40 lengths seem to have take their toll and I can feel me eyelids closing as I'm typing so I'm orf for a lie down - me 'n' Biscuit love a cat nap or four!

Lots of hugs to you all and please take care.

Love Suexxx

  5. Hi, Sue! Vintage and Beautiful, your card says CHRISTMAS HAPPINESS all 'round! I'm so proud of your swimming laps. I'm no longer able to do that, and miss it SO MUCH - a few laps and I have to stop or all my symptoms are triggered. My body considers exercise as being a "traumatic event" and does its thing from there LOL - such a shame. Anyway, back to your amazing feat! I'm grateful you have been able to continue your healthy regimen, and keep up with everything. Doesn't it feel GREAT after exercising? Whenever I do anything physical, I'm always happy - it's an endorphins thingy LOL. I wanted to play in the challenge, but couldn't find a link to it, so I finally did a google search and found it. Thanks for the inspiration and challenge suggestion! huggers, de


Thank you so much for your comments, you make my day!
