CraftyCatz challenge 187.......



Good Morning, happy Friday hope your all ok.....
This week at CraftyCatz we have our lovely boss lady Carol choosing our theme, which is.............
                                               Lets Go Pink..
                                                              
Oh this is so exciting....guess who we have as our sponsor this week............

Yep...the one and only Saturated Canary...I was lucky enough to win a couple of Krista' images a few weeks ago and trust me, if you don't own any, you have to have some....so many to chose from to, you will be spoiled for choice....

I made a book for my sweet girl Mia, who goes through books like you would not believe, she writes and sticks things in there, and she is 'Smash' mad, so we made her a custom one..lol..
The image is obviously a SC coloured with Flexi and Promarkers, I must adnit to not being really happy with my colouring on this, maybe I was having an 'OFF' day....
The smash letters were cut by AuntySue and glittered for miss sparkle
Ribbon..Dovecraft
Hearts from Sue, everything else stash
As you can see, the book itself was put together by cutting two pieces of tough card to the size you want..
Then decide how many pages your going to need and cut those, either card or paper, up to you..
I put the pages together and glued the edges with some real tough stuff and also put a couple heavy duty staples in as well..
Attached it by sticking the pages to the back cover and then decorated and put a few pockets in and tag type ribbon for Mia to separate everything, believe me this is now a bulging wreck..lol....
As you can see I put a small spine on this one, I just thought it would make it slightly different for her..!!
Point is, my sweetie loved it, that's all I care about...lol...
Thats it from me for today, later on Mia will choose the candy winner and I will try and put the name up tonight if I get time as we are celebrating her Birthday today, 10yrs....where does it go....wow...
Thank you so very much for being here, 
take good care, have a fab week-end and see you all soon.
Janette

Here I am again....



Hello Girls, is everyone doing ok, well I hope so, if not big hugs to you.....
Just thought I would pop this onto my blog before I forget totally as per....it's was made for AuntySues Birthday instead of a card, I know she likes this sort of thing, well that's what she says...that'll teach her if not...lol...(.Love Ya Suse...lol...xxx)
It was the usual thing, I cut a heart shape from some heavy board I had, covered it with this gorgeous DP,not sure if it was K&Co
The image is one of MoManning's bestest, as you can see, which I coloured with flexi and pro markers
Everything else is simply from my stash, and you should by now know my 'Bunting Fettish' has got out of hand, it's the same old thing, just cut out and strung up..lol...
That's it for now,  remember to call back tomorrow for a new CraftyCatz challenge
and Mia will be picking a winner for the Mini Candy..
Hugs
Janette.

What...posting on a Tuesday...AGAIN....lol...


Hi to all, hope your all enjoying this beautiful hot spell we are having, I am as red as a beetroot and I just don't care..lol....it's just fab to get outside.......
.OK then, I made this for a friends Birthday recently, had to wait till she got it, then forgot to post...DOH....well, here it is, a bit Vintage, as she likes that...

The paper, which I adore and almost cried as I used it...lol....is from an old pack and I have no name on it...I am sorry...but I do think it was K&Co if that helps..
All my bits and bobs are from stash, mostly sent to me through friends or picked up as freebies at some point, the ribbon was just sitting in my ribbon stash and HAD to be used for this...perfect match and lots of Kraftcard involved, the tiny pearl heart in the corner is simply hand cut and covered with pearls...
I know my friend liked it thats all that matters, hope you do to....

I am entering this into the challenge at CraftingFriends..a new blog...Anything Goes...
And a second one for SimonSays...again, AnythingGoes....
Have a wonderful week girls and please remember to enter my mini candy which is still open...all are welcome...hugs, Janette.xx
