Well I'm back and I hope you all missed me.....

Hello Girlies, how you all doing..........OH BOY...have I had a time of it with my PC......I can tell you, I got to a point last week where I felt it was all over for me in blogland and I gave up........if  it wasn't for my brilliant friends....especially AuntySue and Tilly...well....I really don't want to think about it....and a big thanks for your kind words Katina......fingers crossed it will be ok now...


OK, well I made this for the lovely AuntySue's Birthday last week, I have done no crafting at all and got in a real fluster when starting this..lol...I think she liked it...instead of the usual card I send her, I did a make-over on a frame...as you can see in the pictures, it was all pretty simple and as usual I did my panick....OMG I don't know what to do....lol...

At the beginning of the year, we...well TILLY...decided we would do only hand made gifts for each other...after all we are crafters...she said....lol.....Sue and I sat there nodding in agreement with her Majesty...(as we always do )...but it is not as easy as one might think...let me tell ya....it gets harder all the time....I mean, how many hearts,boxes, books and calendars can one person need..lol....soooooooo, I need more ideas....anyone got any.....'cos SHE aint letting this go...lol.....(we love her really )...Sue...back me up with this...lol...




Here is what I started with...painted it with Acrylic and then sprayed with gold cosmic shimmer and when dry covered in cosmic shimmer Twinkles.




The flowers are all from stash, die cut heart and tag cut from Funky Foam and heat embossed and stamped to look engeaved....
                                                                             




Die cut corner is a Nellie...the Image is from Saturated Canary and coloured with Promarkers




The gorgeous corner die was from Sue herself.....and the bunting was cut from Magnolia papers....the font I used next to the image and for the tiles is Treelike.....

If I can find any challenges I will enter, need to look round first...
Found One...Papertake weekly...Anything goes....


Well thats it my lovelies, soooo happy to be here and I am so excited to come and see what I have missed.....
Big Hugs and much love to you all, Janette.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Oh what a transformation, you would never believe this started out as that boring plain photo frame! It's gorgeous, Janette, and a fab pressie.

Crafty Cardmakers has a challenge on that you could put this in....no cards or ATCs, so this is ideal.

Good to see you back, I was wondering where you were. I haven't heard from George C either so I thought you'd run off with him behind me back LOL. Glad you got your computer sorted, they drive you mad when they don't work. CoB
