A challenge or three...

Good Evening Girls, Hope your all having a nice start to your week-end........I have been really busy trying to do a few Christmas cards, it's only just dawned on me though just how many images I have done in Red and Green....why....I like it, but I like abit of a change too....who knows what thats all about...lol....


I made this one for the challenges at SimonSays...Button/Buttons
CreativeInspirations lashings of sparkle
DreamValley Anything Goes


This gorgeous image is MoMannings Ragged Angel, is she just beautiful or what, coloured with Promarkers
DP is Papermania, I did slosh acrylic all round it and lots of sparkle to, can hardly see the paper at all...
Metal corner from Mandy, also had the acrylic quickly wiped over it
That gorgeous swirl and poinsetta is from AuntySue, also added sparkle to
Ribbon is RibbonGirl
sentiment LOTV
Button from Tilly...gem from stash


A close up of the button, just to prove it's there...lol...so tiny..

I'll be off now, trying to keep as busy as possible, various reasons, but keeps my mind away from food too...lol...I have been told to lose weight or else from my Dr, now I am not that big, I promise, but, on top of everything else, I have a blood pressure problem, if I can shift some of this, maybe it will drop abit and I can escape lifelong meds.....got till 30thNov to see how I am doing....oh it's all happy, happy here you know...lol....it could be worse, so hey, I'm trying.....

Thanks for being here and take care, have a fab week-end, hugs Janette.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
