DT CraftyCatz 224


Morning, hope your all well...
Try and make this quick, I can't sit for long, my back is really painful this week, very up and down...

Our brand new challenge is Anything Goes from our BossLady Carol
we are sponsored by two lovely companies this week...
3 packs Die Cuts

$25 prize

Here is what I made for this one....
Small wreath from some old flower stems
instead of twisting I just sort of wound and then added sting bows, Ribbon,metal stars, painted white, and some heart shaped brads and LadyBird pegs..the Label in the centeris from PNS

Thats all from a very sore me....I do try and get round to see you all, sometimes it's very difficult for me..
no need to go into all that rigmarole though, we all have a problem or two..lol....
Have a good week-end,
and a very Happy Mother's Day UK, we deserve some spoiling methinks..lol...
And remember to put the clock on Saturday night...
Take care...
Hugs, Janette.xxxx

CraftyCatz challenge 222....


Good Morning..
Well yet another week has gone and here we are again with a brand new challenge for you..
Before I tell you all about it, we would like to say a big friendly 'Hi' to our newest DT member..
DONNA..
Hope your enjoying the experience so far Donna...

Our challenge this week ,at CraftyCatz was chosen by our lovely Nick, she is taking a little break after this one..
Do hope she will be back real soon...
The theme is 
Boys and their Toys.
Our sponsor is
DigiStamps4Joy
They not only gave us some fab images to use, but they also added one of there wonderful DT
this is Charlene's gorgeous creation

And some info on DS4J
 I first started crafting when my son was in his second year of Beavers. My husband and I became leaders that year with 2 other wonderful people. I found that I had a knack for finding ways of making crafts for the Beavers to do that were cute but inexpensive. I moved on from Beavers into Guiding and followed my daughter through her 2 years of Sparks and Brownies and her first year of Guides. When she left I continued on for a few years. During this time I found that I loved making things by hand for people...so when I was introduced to making cards 3 years ago, I jumped into it enthusiastically. And I have never regretted it.
**********************************************************************************************************************
OK then, my card is not the best, you all know I hate doing Man cards...lol
Image coloured with Flexi's
all other bits and bobs from stash..
*********
 I hope you will come along and join us,
We are also having a GDT call for next month, just add GDT to your entry, easy as pie
I think I have gone on long enough, this is a long post....phew..
******************************
Hope we have some nice week-end weather, the week has been gorgeous here in the sunny NW of England...lol...
Having said that late Wednesday night,a real heavy mist came in from the sea,( got a bit edgy in case it was Blake and his crew...lol....) if you never watched 'The Fog,' that was lost on you, sorry...
Well, as I write this it is still with us, can't see across the fields, back or front, I am surrounded...
By the way I am scheduling this post so hope by Friday morning it has buggered off...
Take care,
Hugs Janette.
