Hi Girls, just a quickie, two in one day is more than enough..lol....
My Grandaughter, Mia has been busy crafting this afternoon with me, she was lucky enough to be given a gorgeous set from AuntySue, and she has been busy assembling it and making flowers etc; for it, I thought I should share it with you, I think she did it brilliantly, all on her own too....Big thanks to Sue, your a life saver at times..lol...

CraftyCatz challenge No 88

Good morning you lovely lot, and a Happy Friday to you all, hope you all had a good week and not to many problems along the way.
This week at CraftyCatz it is the lovely Linda' turn to host, she asked us to 'Add a Charm'...so c'mon girls, dig out your charms and come join us, we are sponsored by Sassy Studio this week.

Here is a little about them.

Sassy Studio Designs is a fresh new company. We have been designing and selling for a year now, and we have been kindly received into the community of digi stampers and crafters. I started designing images shortly after I started stamping, reason being...I didn't hardly like anything else out there I was a young adult woman at the time I was engaged, had no kids, I wanted fun sexy images that I would enjoy using and my friends and hubby would enjoy receiving. I designed images for 2 other digi stamp companies when my wonderful hubby kept trying to get me to go out on my own. So in June 2009 thanks to the few faithful followers I had, Sassy Studio Designs was born! It has been a wonderful journey starting my own store. We have just grown so much these past months.I still try to keep
Lindsay Dyer: keep with my original philosophy and reason for designing stamps, make them fun and keep them sassy...and yes sometimes even sexy!

My card was made using one of the the sponsors images, coloured with promarkers,the flower is from an old woodware punch and the tuille is from stash.Heart is my usual handcut and stamped then edged in gunmetal glitter, love that colour, used it on the image and edges of card and flowers too, hope you can see it well, oh and the studs were from stash, had those for ages just wish I could remember where they came from and the sentiment is, I think one of Angie'.
Well thats it from me for now, I have had a very busy week again what with one thing and another, I also see that most of us are still suffering from Blogger-itis..lol...oh boy has that been a barrel of laughs....think I am in for a quiet week-end apart from a looking after the Grandchildren on Saturday while Mum and Dad go to a friends 40th Birthday bash......last week-end I got to see some old friends that rarely visit, it was a real treat for me and I so enjoyed it,it's lovely to catch up isn't it.....anyway, enough of my waffling on, you have a good day and a lovely week-end, take care, hugs Janette.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

P.S. It has just taken me 1hour.!!!!!to upload this post ...what a nightmare..had to keep signing in and out...feel exhausted now..lol...xx
