CraftyCatz Challenge 114






Good Morning and HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all, hope you all enjoyed the holidays and are now raring to go....We have a fab new challenge at CraftyCatz all ready for you, so get your crafty stash out and lets play.....


This week our wonderful teamie Dianne chose the theme, which is New beginnings ...Anew Baby, wedding, new home etc;... We are very lucky to be sponsored by CraftyEmmasStore this week details of the prize will be on the challenge blog.



I decided to start the new year with a box, I used my lovely new NS dies for the borders and the top and bottom, the flowers are made from a canvas type material I had in my sewing stash, and if anyone is interested I will show you how I did them, easy but time consuming....the heart sentiment is also a Nellie die, ribbon and pearls from stash.The tiny roses are also from stash.It's a shame the pics don't show the gorgeous glitter card I used to make it all in, so pretty and it's from AuntySue, a chrimbo pressie....love it Sue....I thought this would be lovely to give a gift to a new Bride....


Well I hope you like it,for once I do...lol...
I am entering this into the challenge over at Paper Take weekly, anything goes.and an optional New theme, so I think I have it covered.

On a brighter note I am starting to feel much better now, but it has been quite a bad 'DO' this time...lol.....I will be catching up with you all, and will be back with my DT creation for DreamValley on Sunday, if not before......

Thanks for being here, take care, hugs Janette.xxx
