CraftyCatz challenge #176


Morning to you all, hope your all managing to keep warm this freezing Good Friday morn; the weather we are having here in the UK...is really bad, I only remember one Easter before this when it actually snowed, and we were on a day trip to Blackpool would you believe....Fieldsends Coaches and all that...I know some of you will be familiar with this...I was just a kid, but have a picture somewhere of my Dad and Brother, stood outside the coach looking frozen...lol....The moral of this story is....Can we have some sunshine please......COME ON.....lol...


Today see's the start of a new Challenge at CraftyCatz, and this week it's our lovely Dianne's turn to choose the theme, which is.........Swirls and Pearls....oh...pretty,pretty time girls.....and do we have a fabulous sponsor for you....well, yes, actually we do.......Redonkulous Designs, wow, they are brilliant, we were so lucky to be sent a choice of images to try out, and they are gorgeous.....
A few words from our sponsor.....
 I can provide 16000 Redonkulous Reward Points to the winner of the challenge. These points allow winners to shop for free digital products within my shop. The points are equivalent to 2 to 4 digital products, depending on what the winner decides to use them on.

Here is my card..

Are you all looking forward to a Happy Easter week-end, hope you get some nice chocolate eggs, I am off to have my egg for Breakfast , can't eat meat today, I suppose that sounds old fashioned to some, but one day a year won't kill me, I just can't do it..lol...
Enjoy it whatever you have planned...

CraftyCatz challenge 175..


Good Morning Blogland, Hope your all doing ok and had a good week, we are all freezing here in the UK once again, we await Spring with great anticipation...lol....in other words, Will it EVER arrive....

This week at CraftyCatz we have a fab new challenge for you from our gorgeous, glittery and very pink orientated Sassy..She would love to see you use lots of sparkle and a bow somewhere on your creation, or a ribbon....as I did....whoops....the more glamorous the better for our Sassy if you don't mind.....that girl must shimmer from head to toe...lol....
We are so lucky to have two sponsors this week..The fabulous BunnyZoeCrafts, with a £10.00 certificate to spend....oh think of all you could treat yourself to....


and the wonderful DigitalDelights with a fabulous $5.00....it's all good..
OK, Here is my sparkly creation, no image....screammmmm....can you believe it, I thought I was very brave to do this, I mean for me this is as CAS as it gets, I had to back away from the desk and turn the lights out to stop from adding anything else....lol....
As you can see, I simply tore up some low tack tape into strips and laid it out and added sparkle in between, peeled it off, layered up on silver foil card and then onto the cardstock itself, which I had added sparkle to around the edges, the ribbon was in my stash and the buckle is one I bought a million years ago at a craftshop in fleetwood that I can no longer remember the name of...sorry.....
That's that for another week girlies, hope your doing something nice over the week-end, I will be here staying as warm as I can, trying to get rid of all my complaints, so that my house can start to be re-vamped, it is in dire need of some work, and I am told, THEY,... Family... won't start until I am fully recovered....personally I think it's an excuse, .......oh for the days when I did everything myself......
Thanks for your visit, leave me a message and I'll come see you.....take care, warm hugs, Janette.xxxxxxxx
