Willow Sketchie Challenge - 5th July - Summer Florals

Hi Everybody,

I hope your well, well this morning I'm off to my Stroke Club this morning, it will be good to see them again as I haven't been for the last 2 weeks as I've been on my Stroke Trial.  There's a lot of information and knowledge I'd pass on.  After this I have to go to the Stroke Trial for my Weekly Follow-up, it's only going to be a half hour appointment so will be home soon.

I went with Mum yesterday about her sight, and she was told that she had Retinal Vein Occlusion, it sounds a lot worse than it is.  Well you have vein's which take blood to the retina, so you can basically see.  Well, my Mum's have got a blockage in therefore that is why she has this dark spot when she sees.  Good news is that she is being treated for it next Wednesday, although I don't fancy the injection she's going to have!!!

I would like to say thank you for all that applied for the DT position and can now reveal that:

Margreet, Dawn, Sonia and Shary

I'm sure you will give them a big hand as they step up for the Challenge. 

Well, it's Thursday and that means it's time for another Willow Sketchie Challenge.  However, there is a new format that we are now following.  There is a Sketch, however there is also a Theme, now it's your choice as to what one or both you decide to follow. 

But firstly, I must congratulate the Winner of last weeks Challenge, and of course the Top Three, we had loads of really good entries and I really like looking at each of them, so thank you all for following my sketch or following my Theme or both. I really enjoyed your card / project.  I hope you enjoy you Voucher to spend at Willow Designs.  Congratulations.

This week our hostess is the most wonderful Lisa, and she has the most fantastic Sketch for you to follow, and here it is:

But, together with the Sketch her Theme is:

'Summer Floral's' 

All you have to do the Challenge, is the Card / Project needs you need to make it 'Summer Floral's'.

Now I here you calling 'What will I win???'.  I heard you, the Winner of this weeks Challenge (picked at random) will receive a Voucher to spend at Willow Designs, how cool is that!!!
