Hold on to your Dreams

Made this one for someone who is having abit of a personal struggle at the moment......just wanted her to know that I am there for her and she shouldn't let go of all her plans...can't say more than that really.....I know she will love this image though and hopefully the sentiment with it.......
Papers are PM and KateKnight...the freebie ones...lol...
coloured with a combo of promarkers and shimmer chalks,and her wings are glamour dusted.
Ribbon from stash and the little flowers were part of a spray which I split up and wrapped round the ribbon.
Please forgive the poor quality of the picture....I am back to using my scanner again,and of course I had a problem with the bulk of the flowers...this was the best of three trys....I KNOW....lol.....thankyou for popping by and please leave me a comment,I love visiting your blogs,take care,hugs Janette.x

Card Kit swap

This is a monthly swap run on the Do-crafts forum,I really enjoy this one,we just simply make a card for a partner then send it off,complete with everything you have used to make it....it's amazing how all the cards turn out,even though you started with the same kit.....anyhow,I got mine today and made this with it,I hope Jackie likes it,now usually I would show both my own and Jackie's,but I don't have her permission to put it on my blog,so best not to,just take it from me her card is gorgeous.......I think most of the kit is PM and I coloured the image with promarkers....and.....the only reason I have put it on my blog today is because.......I STILL cannot upload to my gallery on DC......aaarrrrrggggggghhhhhhhh....I am so unhappy about it and can't get any response from the powers that be......thankyou for letting me share this with you,I may just have gone crazy other wise....lol....hope your all doing ok,thanks so much for taking time to pop by,take care,hugs Janette.x

Some pics at last

Hi All,At last I managed to get my SIL to e-mail some of my pics for me,but I am abit cross....to say the least.....he has only sent two of the boxes and none of my Easter milk cartons or my new craft space.....have just rang Carla and asked why,guess what,she will ask Matt later.....omg.....couldn't you just scream.......anyway,made these to fill with bits and bobs and send to a friend or two,I do have a box making fettish,not that you would know,but I love them,all shapes and sizes...lol....my fav here is the strawberry one,the image is one AuntySue sent me a while back I just coloured in with promarkers and then uploaded it to pageplus,far easier than doing all that work don't you think,the lid lifts and it has a little drawer,which I put a little catch on,the red card stock was some really good solid stuff from the papermill,I hope you like it,strawberry's always remind me of my Mum.....anyway,both boxes are same style,one was slightly bigger than the other....mainly because I don't really keep measurements I just go for it and fight with it till I have it sorted.....naughty I know but thats how it works for me,I have tried in the past working with templates etc; and it dosn't always work for me...so I suppose I am a 'Crafting Cowboy/girl'...you know what I mean....lol.... I hope you don't mind me showing things without all the pics there should be,but thought that everyone will think I've gone abit daft keep promising.....lol......thanks for popping in and having alook,please let me know what you think,I love your comments on things,and it's nice to know I am not alone....take care,hugs Janette...xxxxP.S. I will make him pay for this....oh yes I will....lol....xxx
