Afternoon all..


I started this last night, am trying to get as many Christmas cards as possible done now....
a good few are CAS, postage and all that, so when I spotted the SimonSays wednesday challenge.. which is to use Kraft card....well,
it was made for this....I hope......
ok..Kraft card from Craft-shed, 
backing done using 2 of Clarity Stamps stencils, they are just brilliant and if you haven't yet tried, have a go..
I did the flourish with TH distress vintage photo, the brick work is clear heat embossed, also bits of glitter here and there...well you have to, it's Christmas and it's the law....
The Merry Christmas sign was a freebie in making cards magazine, with some delicious papers too....Nov issue.

That is that for today, please call back tomorrow for a look at our new challenge at CraftyCatz...until then, stay dry....HA..!!!!
I am getting my voice ready to sing a happy birthday to my other Grandson who is 9 today...lol...
big hugs Janette.

Hi everyone, doing some crafting, the weather is so bad, can't go out as I will blow away...lol...it really is awful isn't it....hope you are all keeping safe...I told the Grand children this morning we should keep them home when it's this bad...lol...they thought it was a fab idea..not so the parents...oh well, it made me even more popular..lol...

I bought this image from SN last week, I love this sweet girl, so pretty....
Used Flex markers although she does look abit flushed..lol...
and some seasonal sparkle of course..

Hoping to pop this into the challenge at Simon Says which is ANYTHING GOES...

That's all for now, oh the sound of the wind is so scary, remember I am almost in the middle of fields, it's loud and weird....lol

AuntySue

BLACK and 1 other colour..this excludes skin, hair and white..she is not counting that as a colour...
{.I don't know...ask Sue..lol...}
I made a Halloween card, always make the odd one, as many already know my youngest son was born on that day...so..lol...!!!!!
The image was a freebie a million years ago, and I don't know where from...so sorry....
The little wooden letters are from Amazon, just coloured with Flex markers..all very CAS really...

Just a quick post from me today..I saw these made on Pinterest.

They had been done with coffee filters, well, I don't have nor use...so...some fancy smanchy tissue won the day...dead easy to do, need abit of patience..not really good on that lately...and a steady hand, don't really have those either....BUT...got there, think they look OK for a first try, will defo do some for Christmas...
Here is a link to my Pinterest where you can find the original post...hers are better I must say..lol....

CraftyCatz challenge..... 250 Autumn...


Morning you lovely lot.....hope all is well in your world...
Today at CraftyCatz we have my challenge which is 
Now I don't know about you, but I just love this time of year, so many pretty colours and the rich, lush look is breath taking.....plus the fact that if we have had our usual OK summer here in the UK....
aren't you just glad the disappointment is over.....how many days did we live in hope that tomorrow will be better..lol....although September was pretty fabulous...

We have two sponsors for you this week..




OK, here is what I made, the image is from FSS, I did alter the size so I could place where I wanted..
The beautiful verse is taken from a children's song, written by American poet, 
George Cooper...{1838-1927}
If you want to hear the song, which is so sweet and haunting somehow....
you can find it here....
Now the top line is a little different, but that's how I found it and had already put my whole card together when I found out...but I do like it this way too....


Hope you like as much as I do, please come along and see what our amazing girls have made to inspire you, plus you never know, you could pick up a nice prize too...

That's all from me for today, I hope you'll leave me a message so I an visit you right back...
Have a lovely week-end, whatever the weather....
Big Hugs,
Janette.xxx
