Hello. I knew last week ( again) I'd have very little time to visit so didn't pop on. We went to our eldest Son's in Yorkshire on Thursday. On the Wednesday I tried Card and a Cuppa - again no takers, despite four having said they were going. So will try next Wed - that will probably be final attempt for now if no one turns up :-(
I have been preparing for a class on Sat ( all being well- I'm not feeling all that well :-( ) and then at beginning of June I have a Friday Eve, All Day Sat Event. Lots to do for that but I have started. 
So to my desk 

I have been working on some cards and playing with some new ink pads /new colours from SU.

Well I think that's it for this week, I know very short for me. As I said not feeling at my best. 
Will visit all who visit me and those ending in same number as me.


  1. what a shame that no-one attended your event. hope you feel better soon. Helen #2

  2. Hi Anne, hope you're feeling better soon. Sorry that you didn't get any uptake on your card and a cuppa idea. Hope you get some takers next time. Sarah #9

    1. Hi Sarah. Thanks for popping by. They say it takes a while for new things to get established so we shall see. X

  3. Hope you are soon feeling better Anne, I know there are a few coughs and sniffles around at the moment.. the downside of a few days of sun, it always seems to bring those bugs and beasties out, but it's good to see it has not stopped you from crafting.
    Shame about the card & a cuppa, we have nothing like that around here. Take Care & get well soon Tracey #5

  4. Hope you’re feeling much better very soon my friend.
    Annie x #15

  5. SU have such lovely colours of ink pads, hard to think of them having more out.
    Shame about your Card and Cuppa but they do not know what a lovely time they are missing, I'd be along if I livd closer. Bet you had some nice things planned.
    Good luck with the other events coming up.
    Must be something going the rounds as I don't feel well either and Sarah is not well.
    Hugs, Neet 7 xx

  6. Morning Anne. Sorry you are feeling so rough. Trust you start to feel better soon. Great new colours. Sad to hear your card and cuppa idea isn't working out at the moment. Do hope it takes off soon for you.
    Take care. God bless.
    Margaret #4

  7. I saw on someone else's blog that you've got a UTI - so sorry to hear that, they're not much fun and can make you feel really rough. Hope you've got some antibiotics which will kick in soon and help. Until then a little light crafting is good and will hopefully lift your spirits.
    Hugs LLJ 8 xxx

  8. My apologies for the late visit. A huge storm knocked out my electricity and internet about the time I began visiting. I finally gave up waiting for it to come back on and went to bed. Sorry to read you are not feeling well, Anne, but you make some absolutely gorgeous cards.

    Too bad your card and cuppa isn't taking off for you. Maybe next week some will show up. Happy WOYWW from #3 and feel better soon.

  9. Hi Anne, so sorry you have a UTI. I had them for weeks before Christmas, so know how miserable they can be. My Mom used to get them, and was told by a nurse that Robinsons lemon barley water is the thing for them, and touch wood, she hasn't had one for a couple of years since she started having a glass a day. needless to say, it's part of my plan too now. Love the card, great layout and so simple. Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz XxX #10

  10. I do hope you are feeling better soon and that your plans work. loving the card. Happy woyww, Angela x23x

  11. Hi dear Anne, thanks for visiting my blog and leaving some sweet comments. I'm sorry to hear that you're not feeling well.. I hope you improve quickly. Enjoy your crafting classes. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  12. Hi ANne, sorry you aren’t feeling 100%, just read Jan’s comment. Ghastly things..lots and lots of fluid and do nothing with impunity for as long as it takes, poor you. I know this sounds really negative, but my experience with a Card and a Cuopa thing isnt great. It generally consisted of people who wouldn’t pay for a workshop but would happily come and use all my stuff and glean information and techniques more casually. They’d over stay and abuse the hospitality. It wasn’t a good experience for me at all. But you’re probably aware of that sort of thing, it’s not as if you’re an inexperienced craft host! I do like the look of the ink colours you’re playing with...the SU pads really are so good aren’t they. It’s a wonder you have room to store them, there are so so many!

  13. I'm late getting round desks again this week - just having a breather after watching the royal wedding before the cup final!! Hope you are feeling better and able to enjoy this lovely sunshine xx Jo


I love receiving comments and promise I will read them all.


I  did try to do a post for WOYWW but didn't finish it - so tired!  I had  class on Saturday then out to lunch!  Ready and waiting ...
