Silly me,I almost forgot,a friend from do-crafts let me have the template to make these little gift boxes....they are just so fab to make,again sorry about poor picture,but if you go along to Alex's blog,you can see how amazing hers is.

Not a card..at last...

Found instructions on how to make this little file while blog hopping one day....only problem with that is I can't for the life of me find it again,so if anyone knows who credit should go to please let me know....have actually made a few,all very different,but this is only pic I have as camera being very naughty at the moment,they are dead easy to make and really useful,please let me know what you think,hugs Janette.x

Just Magnolia Challenge

This week the card has to have stiching on,real or other wise....well the needle and thread came out,but only for a small portion of my card ,can't sew to long because my hands don't want to...lol....also the layout for my card comes from a swap on the do-crafts blog I belong to,each month we swap cards for friendship,it is run by Carol and occasionally she puts a little extra for us if we want to try and win a little gift,hence the layout.....I made that into a long story me thinks...lol...right then,Papers are from a freebie in a craft mag...ribbon,gems and flowers from stash water coloured using the usual derwent pencils and a couple of whispers pens,think thats it,although I proberbly have missed something...sorry if thats the case,thanks for dropping by and have a fab week-end,I am off to my daughters for the afternoon,lets hope the rain keeps off,hugs Janette.x

Whiff of Joy challenge card.

Thought I would have a little go at this today.Love the W.O.J. images and think they are such a pleasure to use.Not sure about the colours I chose though,I think yellow always looks abit to 'yuk' somehow....lol...don't get me wrong,I like yellow,but it just never seems to look right on my pictures.....maybe it's just me....lol....it is possible...any way,I used Laura Ashley papers{I know...again...}
Ribbon from stash
Sentiment card...Laura Ashley
My fav punch for the flower
Coloured in with Derwent water colour
pencils and a touch of Glitz it here and there.
Think thats it,I hope someone out there likes it,and to all who have entered this challenge,best of luck,enjoy the rest of the day,hugs Janette.x
