I am delighted and can not wait to get my greedy hands on it.....that postman better get his act

Right, at CraftyCatz this week our lovely Kim is doing the honours and she wants to use Buttons, well I love buttons don't versatile....and needed at times too....I made a Tag, I was just in a Tag mood, I really do get bored with cards all the time, usually I make at least one box, milk carton, pillow box, carrybag etc; every week just to stop my own

We are sponsored this week by The Stamping Boutique, who kindly gave us some images to play with, although I must confess I used one I already had, I do love this, looks fab in so many colours, especially Red...The winner will get to pick 3 digi
I used Promarkers to colour the image
MS doily edge punch
Scrim, buttons, string,muslin and paper from stash

Will be trying to catch up with you all, I am sorry for being a shocking blogger all week, but like I said before time is just not my friend right now.........if your still here then THANKS and hope to see you soon......take care, hugs Janette.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Good Morning Ladies, are we all well.....hope so....
This week at CraftyCatz we have the lovely Suzie running the show, she would like to see all your Christmas for those that know me well, Christmas is a time of year, for me personally......that should only arrive at noticed my local co-op store has already filled the shelves with Christmas stock...the very DAY the kids went back to school....what the..**&%, I know lots of you are far more organised and want to get things started.....I mean to but

So our lovely team got cracking and I will confess to enjoying my little self with this one....maybe abit TOO

After all my talk I am a sucker for all things Christmas, I do it every year, so ignore all I
I got a piece of acetate from stash, I always collect it from all things...the die is one auntySue sent me and I HAD to use....omg it is so gorgeous....Snowman image is a Sassy designs, Santa, Tree and Mouse on ski' colouring book, all coloured with Promarkers and some sparkle...of course.....the fence die is from Tilly I think....cut some card out in waves and lots of glitter, for the snow scene and I have to say I really liked appeals to my silly nature I think, I did dangle one of snowmans legs over the fence, only because I do love his thin legs and wanted them

Here it is in it's box, also made from Acetate......

We are sponsored this week by the wonderful Crimson Cloud, and they are giving 3 Die cut packs of your choice.....

Metal Art....

Afternoon girls, are we all doing ok...just a quickie from me, I was having a play around to see if I could get the look of this metal art stuff thats doing the rounds.....without all the expensive tape etc; you have to buy....I just put some chipboard letters on a piece of cardstock, some scrim and covered  in glue then put some metallic looking tissue paper from stash....brushed it all down nice and tight, when dry I rubbed a embossing ink pad over it, sprinkled with powder and heated it up, while still hot I put a screw.... head down, into it, to leave it looking like a screw was actually there..........

splurged some viva decor around to, I think it looks ok to be honest and Lucas loves it on his door......what do you think, I know it's not as fab as the real thing, but this cost me

It does look metal you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks for being here and I would LOVE to know what you really think...Hugs Janette...xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
