Colour Create and Crafty Catz Challenge card...


I don't mind telling you I have not had a good time at all with this one....all my own fault,almost finished it and knocked a cup of Tea everywhere.......after the hysterics and the tears came the anger....so mad at myself....soooo,had to start over and then.....I scanned it and it squashed my beautiful flowers....they were all curly and pretty.....lets face it....this was not the best idea for today....lol....so on to the job at hand....for colourcreatethe theme this week is Red white/off white Chocolate and pink....whereas at CraftyCatz it is all about Buttons and Bows and these gorgeous papers were just the job,it was a pack from my good friend AuntySue,part of my Fab presents she sent me for my Bday,they are Papermania Capsule collection and I love them..flowers were also sent by Sue,pink pearls from Papermill,ribbon is celebrations,buttons from stash,coloured in with promarkers...also from Sue,dusted the heart and the edge of her dress with glamour dust,and 3d glossed her shoes......oh and obviously the image is from Mo's...now about this image,does it remind any of you ladies of a time when our Mum's dressed us like this,especially for Easter and Whit-week....frilly dress'and knickers too....then we went to see the Whit-walks...all the Pipers throwing sticks in the air.....oh it was Fab.....memories of times like that are wonderful,todays kids miss out on so many simple pleasures.....sorry to take you down memory lane with me...lol...hope your all having a lovely romantic day...if like me your alone today,well I hope your fine,apart from my fight with a cuppa....I am....take care,hugs Janette.x

Hi janette pmsl at this post well the tea could have aged it as i often do this with lace and you could have vintage to go with the whit walks. My dad has a DVD of the manchester whit walks one of those in 19?? and guess who was in it yes me. God i remember my brother had frilly pants in his pram mum put them on back to front so they didnt spoil. Those where the days boys wore dresses as babies well in salfors anyway. Sorry your card is now stunning and all the work was well worth it. Good luck with the challenges.
