CraftyCatz challenge #359...ATG



Good morning, now as I am writing and scheduling this post, 'DORIS' is out there doing her utmost to destroy our beautiful little isles....oh boy, it sounds rough, the roof is hanging on so far.....!!!!

This weeks challenge is as usual an ATG with an optional twist if you wish to get involved...It was my turn to host so I chose Thoughts of Spring...
We have the wonderful Bugaboo sponsoring us and got to choose some images to use, thankyou so much for that..
Prize details on main blog...

Here is my card using my choice of sponsor image
The moment I saw this image I loved it, you can find it here...
Coloured with flexmarkers, but it looks beautiful without colour too, I was undecided...
Lace, ribbon and dp from stash...yes, I am still trying to be good and use up...
Really hope you will pop over and join us...
Leaving a space in case I find a challenge or two to enter...
Have a good weekend...take care..xxx

Boring day ...



Hi everyone from a very bored me today, am having to do a quick sew job for Carla and it's beginning to get on my nerves, SO, I thought I would have a little break and look at the file,' not yet shared.'...I love to dabble in all sorts, I stumbled on Lotta's blog a good while ago, WOW, amazing., so inspiring, you just want to do everything she does...but you know you can't....at best I try to have a go by eye balling without copying, well I tried and I enjoyed...so here is my first attempt at whatever you call this other than mixed media...
I just cut board up and started layering, then painted with black acrylic first, then bronze, copper and even a touch of gunmetal, I had a ball, the room was wrecked but it was worth it...not bored that day...no no...
The' home' chippie is from the works...
when you visit Lotta's blog...AND YOU REALLY SHOULD....hers looks like real nails, maybe it is, maybe it's all metal, I don't know...but hey...near as I can do for now, if I start going into metal work my family will defo think I'm crazy...
Please pop over, she does amazing things , seriously, how she only has forty odd followers is beyond me....
So I hope you like my 'have a go try it out ' for today....now it's back to the salt mines for my darling daughter......have a good day, thanks so much for the visit....

Morning lovelies, hope your well, today happens to be my birthday, so quite excited to see what the day brings, I don't like alot of fuss, but it's nice to be remembered...haha...know what I mean....we will see.....

Onto our challenge which is the  usual ATG and the optional twist this week is use 3 DP's..
This weeks host is our lovely talented Caz, you can see all the dt work here, and join in the challenge while your at it...great sponsor this week too...
Great prize to be won and the choice is brilliant....The team were provided images to use but I used one of my own, she is so cute....
My 3 papers are there I promise, the checked background, the oval behind the image and the wood effect with the little sign mounted on, all from the Range, the die was from a friend and I am buying it if she ever tells me where it's from...[ honestly Susan..he he....] and I coloured the lovely Rory up with Flex markers...
Cute or what....I love her...and she makes me think of warm, sunny days....

So for now I shall leave you in peace, please leave a comment and let me know what you think...
