Good morning and Happy Friday.....
Time for yet another challenge at CraftyCatz and this week our brilliant teamie Dianne has a great theme for you.....Cute as a Button....good one....we are sponsored this week by the wonderful Paper Shelter, who want to give someone a nice $20 gift voucher...so come on down and join us...lol...

And the brilliant Digital Delights are also sponsoring us with a $5 voucher...can't be bad can it.....


Ok, we were very lucky to have some images from our sponsor at the Paper Selter, I made a Tag this week..
Image is coloured with promarkers
I had to cut the Tag out from memory as I can't find the one I usually cut round...lol...paper is Dovecraft
Lrge star is a guess work cut out and the small ones are from a punch
Ribbon, peg,button  from stash and that little plastic heart is from something that once belonged to Mia, don't know if it was a game but they have come in very handy..lol..

I am entering this into the Anything Goes challenge over at Creative Inspirations

Thats all from me, hope your all OK and the snow is not driving you mad, I know not everyone loves to see it, you have to admit it's much better than the the rain....is there anything more depressing than rain.......NO.....
Hope you have a lovely week-end, take care and have fun, hugs Janette.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

CraftyCatz challenge #166..



Good Morning and Happy Friday.....
I hate to say it, but time is flying again, I mean we are already on our third challenge of the year......weird..lol...

Hope you all had a good week and are  looking forward to a nice week-end, although it's been cold and frosty for us in the UK,I much prefer that to rain, oh I hate the rain..

Right down to business ...This week at CraftyCatz, our Fabulous Sassy chose the theme, which is Anything but a Card, I like this, a nice change for everyone, and if you only make cards, have ago at something else, you may even find you love the challenge...just have a try and join us, we have Crimson  Cloud sponsoring us this week, that means one lucky person will win 3 packs of Die Cuts....I would not say NO.... 
OK, I made this cute little nesting box/Birdhouse thingy.....decorated with flowers, and vine from stash...the heart was made by using bendy wire and wrapping straw round it, then some white twine to hold, not perfect, but was quite happy with it I think....inside I was going to use straw for the little nest, after messing the whole room up and having a coughing fit....( the dust that comes off hay, you would not believe..) I went for shreaded paper...I think it worked ok......
If you want to know how I made it, I will try my very best to show you, IT WAS NOT HARD.....lol.....

Here is another view, I stood it on a roll of tape to get the photo, as you can see.....
This is also the very last project my Martha Stewart punch will be involved in, once again it fell to pieces...third time....I give up and I am not replacing..I just wish some company out there, would make a punch that is tough, I mean really tough....I do have dies that do a similar job, but I don't like them as much as a punch.....


All wrapped up and ready to go...if this makes it to Easter, it will be amazing...lol


I suppose that all for me today girls, thanks for your visit, always happy to see you, am off to see if this fits any challenges anywhere, not entered any so far this year....have a fab week-end and take care, hugs Janette.xxx

CraftyCatz challenge and a GDT for February..



Good Morning, hope your all in fine fettle and ready for a new challenge with us at CraftyCatz...
This week our lovely teamie Kim has chosen our theme, which is Buttons and Bows, so get your pretty kit out and get craftin girls, always a favourite I think, we can all get as fussy and frilly as we like...or not..whatever turns you on....
We also have a GDT for February, so if you fancy coming along and playing with us, we would love to have you, just put GDT after your name when you enter this weeks challenge, if your wondering about joining a DT somewhere, then have ago at this and see if you like doing it....I was always undecided, but it was one of the best things I ever did, especially with this lovely lot...lol....

We are lucky to be sponsored this week by Mulberry Crafts, who have this gorgeous little bundle to send to one lucky winner....we girls can never have enough flowers can we...

I made this cute little Basket which I found on Pinterest last week, it was soooo easy to do, I think I will make a larger one for my daughters friend, she is having a Baby soon, it would be pretty filled with bits don't you think...mmmm.....lol.....
DP is from stash and is possibly on the older side, but I love it
Ribbon is Dovecraft
Buttons, flowers and sentiment all stash
Heart die, Nellie Snellen
Hope you like my version and that you will maybe have ago at it yourself..
Here is the link for you....

Thats it for another week, do hope you will pop over and see what the girls have been slaving over this time,and maybe join the fun......
