CraftyCatz challenge #524 ATG with optional twist of HATS.


 Good morning I hope you are all keeping well, a special thought to all who are on a high alert level, in my area of NW we are now sadly on tier three, the effect it has on every aspect is just awful, I was starting to look forward to having a shopping trip out but thats gone off the rails now, so its been 8 months since I last went anywhere other than my front gate or the garden and its got old fast, but I'd rather stay alive thanks..The moral of this long tale is, please stay safe and wear a mask when you can, its not that hard and it would be so good to get back to normal....


This week we are so happy to be sponsored by the lovely Hetty Clare and you can find her shop HERE


Our boss lady has chosen the twist this week and thats HATS, I think Sue has a 'thing' for them, haha

Here is my card using the sponsor image given to us Pony Christmas.

Isn't he gorgeous, coloured with promarkers, lots of glittery stuff and dies from stash.The DP is from a works pad.

              I hope you will pop over and see the girls beautiful designs and join in of course.

Have a lovely weekend, and please take care.

CraftyCatz challenge #523 ATG all the way...


Morning lovely people I hope you are all keeping safe and dodging this nasty 'bullet'.

Here in the NW we are back at Tier two, but on the Gov; website its saying we are high risk in my area, work that one out because not a soul in Britain can... 


This week at our challenge blog we have our very

  own AuntySue  hosting and she is not doing the optional twist, so its all ATG.

Our sponsor is the lovely Beccys place who so kindly gave us our images to use.

I made a Tag this time, 

Coloured with promarkers, cut the image out and placed on the tag which was covered with some DP I found in the drawer, the lace was from a freebie in a mag a long time ago.

I want to also thank my lovely blog friend Carol G, she sent me the sweetest card all the way from NZ just to say they are thinking about us all, how nice is that, thats two cards from NZ now don't you just love overseas mail..haha

#521 CraftyCatz challenge


Morning lovely friends. Can you believe we are in October, wow where has the year gone.

 I hope you are all well and have had as good a week as possible right now.

This weeks challenge is hosted by myself and the optional theme is New Home.

Our sponsor is JMC Designs who has kindly provided the team with images for this challenge.

I made two cards, first up is with a image called Chai Lodge

Coloured with Promarkers, the DP from The Works, pc generated sentiment and I merged the little sold sign from Skogstokigo ,  the flower and swirl are die cuts.

This next one is an image I had bought myself and made a spotlight card from a while back but same sponsor so there you go


As you can see I used the same freebie sign  with different wording on this one, I had never made a spotlight before and it was ok, but not something I would want to do often.
I would just like to thank Chris, she sent me a beautiful card this week, it was so thoughtful, its easy to forget how kind most folks are, thankyou Chris I feel very lucky to have such friends even though we may never have met it feels good doesn't it, thats the upside to blogland.

Have a lovely weekend.

Morning Lovely people I hope you are all well, and coping as best we all can.

This week our lovely Jac is hosting and has chosen the twist Colours of Autumn.

I hope you are well, I am struggling at the moment, I am having health problems again, the nurse called and took bloods and the Dr. spoke on the phone and he has added even more to my ever growing list of meds. I feel pretty rough and moving is hard, my craft mojo has taken a hike, its a good job I did a few of my DT creations in hand, I really do not like feeling like this but hey-ho always someone worse off somewhere. I do hope your doing ok, things aren't looking good here in the UK I just hope all the silly people stop being silly and get a grip...stay safe friends.xx

CraftyCatz challenge #518 ATG


 Good morning, so glad to have something to show you for our new challenge, time is going so fast and yet I don't seem to have any to spare, its all very odd, but we are in odd times lets face it and now we are going back into a slow paced lockdown, crazy days.

Onto the challenge, this week it was Christine's turn to pick the optionl theme which is Glitter or Gems.


Our wonderful sponsor is Morgans Art World who kindly provided our images, you can find them HERE

 Image coloured with Pro markers, I found the DP from a mag from years ago, lots of sparkle and skeleton leaves.

I also made another card from this image

The inked background was made using a stencil from Craftstash.

Thats all for today, if I have missed any of your posts I am so sorry, I only found out yesterday that some of my fav blogs have been missing for some odd reason, its all very odd, so I was trying to do a catch up, don't know what the problem is but I hope it sorts itself out.


Last but not least by any means, lets take a moment to remember this date, it was a shocking, dreadful day not just for America, but for the world, I pray it never happens again. Bless all that perished.
