Allsorts challenge

Good Morning campers, what a glorious day, I will try and keep this short as I am in soooo much pain with my back and hip...driving me daft and am on some powerful painkillers to try and sort it out...fingers

Last night I was trying to take my mind off things and had a play around, I had some net I wanted to use, nothing special, from a kids playset we ever throw anything, I cut a large heart from card, covered it with dp from PM, stamped a few leaves and inked and covered with crystal glaze,had some glitter letters and just used a sandstone promarker on them, flowers from stash as was button and the chipboard watering can was from a garden center, 20p it cost and I wish I had bought more now, I did buy a few, but now I want and I sprayed the net with spakle and shine....well it wasn't even dry and Carla walks in and says she would love it, I did want it for my craft room...but well, I only have one daughter don't it gives me an excuse to make another with a nice snail I have stashed..she's not getting that you like it, thanks for calling and will get round to you later, have to go and move now...oh boy it's murder I can tell you, and I'm not

I am entering this into the challenge over at Allsorts, they are doing another week of anything goes, which I always love...

Have a good week-end everyone, and wish me luck, I think I need some of to all, Janette.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Morning all, hope your all feeling well and glad the week-end is upon us.
This week it was AuntySue's turn to host the CraftyCatz challenge instead of choosing colours to use, she has decided on no PINK or BLUE.....not as easy as I thought, how much pink and blue do I are sponsored by The Stamping Boutique, and the lucky winner will be able to choose 3 images...

paper is papermania.MS doily punch used
Ribbon from stash
sentiment pc generated
verse from verses 4 cards
Heart is the usual cut from card, stamped and glittered

Thats it again, Fridays are coming around so much quicker these days, it worries me it really
Hope you all have a good week-end, it's our village Gala tomorrow, so please pray for good weather, all the little ones on the lovely floats will be drowned if the latest weather carries on..I always look forward to this day, and the best bit is, it all passes my house, I don't even need to go out, got a front row the Pipers best...think it's the kilts that do
OK am off to Doctor myself up, my chest is playing up again, do you know, one of my friends told me she has 3 other pals with COPD and they are all ill at the moment....then I start, do you think it's the power of suggestion or what....anyway, I will blame Tilly for telling
Have a good one and take care, hugs from a very chesty Janette..xxxxx
