Good Morning Bloggers, hope you have all enjoyed a lovely week so far....
Here in the UK we are so excited about the Olympic Games starting this evening...oh it's all buzzing I can tell you, I personally, love the opening ceremony the best, all the excited faces,I always end up crying, I just can't help myself...lol...I cried my eyes out last Sunday night when little Olga Corbett was on Dancing on Ice.....now there is a legend....lol....

Best get on with the challenge do you think.....
This week at CraftyCatz we are having an All that Glitters week....we are all glistening I can tell ya....our Fabulous teamie Kim chose the theme and all the girls played for hours with there glitter pots.....lol....we had some great  images to play with to, from our lovely sponsors this week......

One lucky winner will recieve 3 digi images


                                 Here's my card and I used this cute little image called Life Saver.........
Coloured with the usual Promarkers, Cardstock PaperMill, DP from old stash, dies used all Nellie Snellen, Raffia from Garden center.Glamour Dust and Glossy Accents also used..

Thats all for now.....how are you all coping with the children off school then......you know it wouldn't be so bad if everything they want to do wasn't so expensive, I don't know how families cope, what a nightmare....
It's our Village Gala on Saturday,  my Grandkids are in it this year, Mia is a Princess, and Lucas and Kaleb are on the Footie Float,,,,I can't wait to see them, it's good for me it passes my house, just in case I'm having a bad day and can't get anywhere, although I will be trying, maybe hitch a ride on the floats as they pass...lol....oh can you imagine Carla's reaction to that little scenario...lol....but I do know them all, I mean it is a tiny village...lol...now I am just amusing myself....so silly...I know.....will let you know how it goes.....

Well I must tell you this, last week when I was feeling all sorry for myself..lol...well, I was at home with the children and Lucas said someone is at the door Nan....looks like one of your craft friends.....................It was my lovely pal Christine...AKA Tilly Trotter.....she had come all that way, a quick cuppa, some craft supplies for a wounded friend..lol...and...WAIT FOR IT....A 3 COURSE MEAL.....lol....all done like a proper take away....lol....whats she like, oh it was gorgeous,everything was home made from the soup to the crumble....God Bless that woman....oh and by the way, she has alot to cope with in her own life......Tilly I love you to death, your a true friend and a Star....

Have a wonderful week-end everyone,enjoy the Olympics, even if you hate sports, it does bring a great sense of Peace with it......
Thanks for still being here, it can't have been easy..lol...take care, hugs Janette.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Hi Janette

I am glad you are feeling better, gorgeous card, love the image. I can see you were inspired by the sports.

How nice of Tilly to come over and cheer you up, I would have but I am too far away, if I brought you a meal it would be cold long before I got to you.

I hope you have a lovely weekend and you enjoy the Olympics, take care and don't over do it.
Hugs Margaret

Love your card Janette that life ring with the glitter on is fab and love the cute fish and wonderful anchor. Enjoy your parade tomorrow and what the heck jump on a float if you want - worse things happen at sea so they say! We are off to the pub now for our tea and a drop of wine and then settling down to watch the Opening Ceremony - not too much wine in case we fall asleep and miss it all lol! Take care and have a fab weekend xx
