CraftyCatz.... Pastels challenge






Morning Girls....well only just I know...Oh I have been battling with my internet AGAIN...it's been very stressful and no phone as well, at first I thought it was my pc again, finally contacted provider and everything needed new wiring...hope now it will be fine for a while at least....

Right then, enough of my waffling lets get on with the challenge this week at CraftyCatz...our fabulous teamie Dianne wants us to use PASTELS this week...mmmmm, TWO DAYS I was searching for something that I would refer to as pastel colours.....I actually had a mental block...how bad is that.....in the end I resorted to good ole Gingham and strips from stash..lol....then it took me another age to find some kind of Mojo......told you it was away with the Fairies.....anyway, in the end I made a Recipe holder, it can hang around wherever it fancies as long as it's not here, ever secretly hoped that someone would walk in and say can I have that please....and your sooo glad it's off your mind...one less to chuck in the bin methinks...lol...seemed like a good idea at the time....

We are sponsored this week by the wonderful Stamping Boutique...who are giving three digi images of your choice.......



Made this by getting a few sheets of card cut to 15cms across and 20cms long, scored and folded to make the little pocket, edged with MS Doily punch and stapled. Punched hole in top corner and put a fastener through so it can hang somewhere...anywhere..lol... the plastic circles, are from an old blind, paper from stash, ribbon Dovecraft Image Stamping Boutique, coloured with Promarkers and dusted with Glamour dust, button stash...on the Tag I wrote, cooks tips...if all else fails, buy a take away..lol... I was just feeling that way out at the time.......

Think thats it for now, I will hopefully get round to see you all today, I'll try my hardest I promise....
So then, whats everyone up to this week end...all UK residents can forget any silly idea's of frolicking in the sand or picnics in the hills...lol....you can go boating, we have lots of water....shocking isn't it....enjoy whatever you do, I'm living in hope that July will be FABULOUS...can't wait for the Olympics to start..hee heeeeee...so excited.....lol....

OK me darlings, am off, going to have a nice cuppa and maybe a shower....lol...not had time yet as BT bloke was here you know....lol
Thanks for your visit, means so much, take care and don't get to wet girls...hugs, Janette.

Janette he could have come and scrubbed your back that would have cheered you up. Well I am sat in pj pants as my pants are hanging wet through. poor dog wants a walk and i told him I am not a duck and it is duck weather. Garden has a big swimming pool on it. As for the creation it is fab and I love it how clever to think of this.
