CraftyCatz challenge...Mothers Day or Special Lady...





Afternoon and welcome to another CraftyCatz challenge, my first one for a while and I am so glad to be back, I have to say a big Thankyou to all my blog friends and both Design Teams for your concern and understanding, I really appreciated it, feeling so much better now thankfully...

This week at CraftyCatz it's my lovely friend AuntySue who chose the theme, as it's so close to Mothers day here in the UK it's a good choice, or if your not lucky enough to have your Mum around anymore, you have the option of a card or project for a Special Lady.......nice one Sue, alot of us dread Mothers Day now.

I made a gift bag for Mia to send her Mum, we are going to fill it with goodies, poor Carla must have tons of my home made 'Tat' around by now....well she's gonna have more...lol...


We are sponsored this week by Pink Cat Studios and the prize for one lucky winner is five digi's of your choice
DP from auntysue who never did tell me who they belong to..lol...
flowers from stash
lace from Tilly
netting and gorgeous love charm from Jules
Tilda image coloured with promarkers
die cut heart NS
bunting cut by me and strung on crochet cotton
button from stash


side view...
hope you can make out the gorgeous charms....
well thats it, I do hope you'll come along and join in the fun.....like I said in the previous post, I will be doing my best to catch up with you all over the week-end, thanks for being here, take care, hugs Janette.xxx

Evening Girls.....

I'm back...well I hope I am fingers crossed and all that..lol...I have sooo missed you all, it feels like forever since I was here....anyway, in an effort to get started again, I had a little play with this box, just something I had wanted to do for ages, so I did..lol...



Lots of white acrylic and embossing going on, stamps are from a My Minds Eye set I've had a while, studs from stash, circle handles are just ring binders....metal corners form Mandy, which I slightly warmed in my hands and bent to fit the corners..... what do you think, it's so handy to store bits and bobs in............
Thats it for tonight, I am back tomorrow with a new challenge from CraftyCatz and will be visiting you all from tomorrow on, thanks for popping by, hugs Janette.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
