CraftyCatz DT card

Hi Girls, hope you all had a fabulous week and are ready for a great week-end, what you all up to far as I know I won't be doing much apart from the Sunday family gathering, but thats OK, after the week I've just had I don't care, just so happy it's over, even though I did'nt get the result I wanted....

Right, onto our challenge at CraftyCatz this week...It is the lovely Carol' turn to host and she wants us all to use Metal and Lace, as soon as I saw this I wanted to do it, it sounds so fab, and I bet you lot come up with some amazing creations for us, well I hope so anyway.

We are so lucky this week to be sponsored by C E S and the winner will receive a £10.00 gift voucher to spend, thats exc; p&p...but lots of lovely stash to choose from..

For my card I used a TeddyBo image, coloured with Promarkers
Papers from a pad I was given but have no name, but they are gorgeous.
Lace and ribbon from stash
charm CraftyBitz
Gift Tag is from my wild asparagus stamp set from MME

Thats it again girls, is it really a week since I last said I must tell you this bit, yesterday, my eldest Baby, was 35....OMG, I don't know how it happened but he is, and he is still as gorgeous as ever,but I just cannot believe it at all, do you think it's because I haven't really grown up much in my head....that all I can think of, but it has passed so fast, the moral of this story is.....if yours are still small, treasure each and every moment, because in the blink of an eye, they'll be towering above you and telling you what to

Have a fab day, thanks for taking the trouble to call, much love and hugs, Janette.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Oh no, not another Heart

Hi All, hope your all well and not suffering from the riots, if you are then stay safe...

Well I can't stop making these things, this is the fourth one so far, I know I have'nt shown them all as I did'nt want to drive you daft with was for my Grandaughter, Mia, and she LOVES it...I win again this

Think this was pretty easy to make, the heart is a full A4 card cut out of heavy cardstock, the paper was from a friend so pretty I felt it didn't need covering, so I just used a glue pen to highlight the fairy and the pattern and loads of glitter....even I was covered, but that seems par for the course lately....leaves are the usual stamped images, cut, inked and also glittered to the brink...pearls and butterfly, oh and the glitter alpha's from stash... and so are flowers and netting....thats it....quite happy with the result...what do you think girls....did Nana do care, hugs Janette.xxxx

I meant to tell you all, I have been really lucky last two weeks, I first won a fab stamp from bunnyzoe and then last weeks creative inspirations challenge....shall I do the lotto do ya think...xxxxxx
