Just a quick one..!!!!!!


Good evening everyone..
Have you had a good day...I did...got my new hair-do and more shopping, but I am so tired now....oh for the energy of the young..lol...
Anyway, because I can't use my crafty space right now, I have been digging through things I had to share at Christmas...and this is one of them....I made this gorgeous Santa image into a wall plaque, I just adore him,
he is simply everything I always thought he was...mounted onto board I think it pretty much explains itself..

I can't remember all the details as I made this around September time......I just HAD to....lol...

Anyway, I would like to enter this into the challenge over at..
Thanks for being here, will try and do a catch up tomorrow, right now my eyes are closing and my legs are killing me..lol...
Have a wonderful evening...enjoy..
Hugs Janettexxxx

CraftyCatz challenge #258...


Good morning, I hope your all well and not feeling worn out with the Christmas shopping....!!!

 At CraftyCatz, this week we have a theme for Snowmen, a card with a Snowman to be precise...not really hard at this time of year I suppose...
We have a fab sponsor for you

They are always so generous with the prize, so please pop over to the challenge and have a little look..

I was so disappointed with my card, you know when it's all in your head and looks great...only it doesn't really it's just your head..lol...oh dear, not the snowman's fault all me...sorry...
Cringe worthy...but thanks for the sweet image to Bugaboo and a kind friend for the droppers at the top...
Right then, before I go two things, 
  1. Next week is our last challenge before the Christmas break, so please, join us, it should be fun...well, we live in hope.....
  2. Our lovely and sooo talented teamie Ingrid is off on a 'New start' somewhere out there, she can't disclose yet....all I know is we are all extremely sad to lose her, she is such a wonderful person and it's been a privilege to work with her....I can only wish her all the very best for the future..
So that's all for today, hope you come and play, try and get back asap...off to the hair salon tomorrow morning, then some Christmas shopping with my daughters mil, Judith and our granddaughter Mia...always a pleasure, an expensive one, but hey ho..lol...
Have a fab week-end and thanks for the visit....
Take care, it's cold out there girls...
Hugs, Janette.xx
