CraftyCatz challenge 247...


Good Morning All, can it really be Friday already.....
It is astonishing how fast the weeks are throwing Christmas our way...before I know it the Tree will be up..lol....
**********************
This week we have our lovely Nick, she wants to see lots of creations with Pretty Women on please....
Now for some reason I struggled with this, my mojo is off with the fairies, not at all happy with my result..
I wouldn't mind so much, but our sponsor this week is KennyK...

How can anyone go wrong...
They even supplied images for us....I have used an older one...
I KNOW..!!!!!!!
even the ribbon is wonky...I am sorry...

Now, we are also having a GDT call this week, so if you fancy joining us for 3months, come on down...
Just add GDT next to you entry and Bob's your uncle...
*********************

Hope you have a great week-end, take care and thanks for the visit..
Hugs Janette.xxxxxx

How's that for service.....

Went on-line shopping yesterday, caused my usual mayhem..lol....( OK...I confess, it HAS to be ME...) anyway, the lovely people at Wild Orchid Crafts kindly put up with me, sorted my order and off I skipped......
IT'S HERE...TODAY, it came this morning while I was at the hospital.....whoop do whoop..lol...omg I am so in love with it all.....Now the question is, do I actually use any of these delicious delights, OR, do I just keep them in a safe place.....lol...
Noooooo....I can't wait to get started.....
Thanks so much to the staff at Wild Orchid....
just hope they don't hide next time they see me coming..

Just thought I'd show something different...

Good morning to you all, hope your well.......I know it's not at all like me to be on here so much, but the children are all happily back in school now, so I can show a couple of things I have been up to.......
I get bored making cards all the time, I love to colour,but it can all get abit much..lol....so I also like to crochet and sew, I made this little bag from sheer boredom, it turned out OK, I had no pattern so made my own, it was very easy and the material was from a bundle of fat quarters I bought at a local coffee shop...

Next up is my spot of wool work....I bought the wool at B&M bargains, it was so cheap, have you seen the price of wool these days..lol...does that make me sound old..lol....

Nice and warm for my back in the winter when I am sat at the pc...I hope...
Hope you like my makes, I am onto something else now, it keeps my eyes from closing when I am watching telly....
Thanks so much for being here...
Janette..xxxxxx
