CraftyCatz challenge

Hello everyone, I really hope you are all safe and well and coping.

We have our 500th challenge for you today, so come along and join in after all you can win a great prize and pass abit of time on....
Our lovely sponsor this week is DigiDoodleStudios who you can find HERE
The team were given images to use and this weeks host, Christine, added the optional theme of One for the Girls.
For my card I used 
Mindy's new boots.
I used a folder for the brickwork and then just chalked over to give abit of depth to it, the dp was an old off cut I found in my draw as were the hearts, I think I used a stencil from HobbyCraft here.   Ribbon was a last buy from Ribbon Girl before it closed, sadly.
Image was coloured with Flex markers.
Entering the following, {thanks for the memory jog Susan..}

Thats it for today at least, I am trying to keep busy with those jobs around the house that get put off all the time, I thought if I can do just one aday it will ease my mind and pass time on better than just sitting about, nothing worse then wasting time is there.
If your like me, I miss hugs more than anything else, my children and grandchildren are my life's work, and to not be able to interact with them is hard going, one of my eldest grandsons Lucas, always hugs me tight when he comes in and I do miss it, when all this is over, God willing, they are all going to be in for alot of hugs and tears will be shed...haha...stay safe lovely

CraftyCatz challenge #499 ATG

Happy Friday, although all days are rolling into one right now but hang in there.

This week our challenge is hosted by our lovely talented Chris, the optional twist she has added is to use we did...
Our lovely sponsor gave us the image to use, amazing how one image can look so different isn't it, and you can find it HERE
Here is my card.

Printed the image onto kraft card, coloured with polychromo pencils added the hello from diamond press, a couple of die cuts and some wax cord, I was very pleased with how he turned out to be honest, never done a full image in pencil before only ever bits and bobs so a learning curve. I have to be truthful, I have so many cards waiting to be posted but can't yet, talk about meet yourself coming back, mind you it has given me a chance to catch up with a few things I had to do and kept putting off.
I am entering the following challenges.
613 Avenue Create use coloured pencils.

Once again thats about it, hope your all coping well, I think for me the hardest part is managing to get my weekly shop, whats wrong with the human race I don't know, but no one wants to share, I can't even get my spot for weekly delivery and that really annoys me, but what can you do,as long as we are all safe who cares at the end of the day.
I hope you can pop along and join us, we love to see your creations. Have a lovely weekend, the weather here in my bit of the UK has been beautifull all week, may it stay a while. Take

CraftyCatz challenge #498 ATG

Good morning, how is everyone...I hope your all holding your own, so far so good.
I know everyone is stressing with this virus, its nasty for sure, I am self isolating and it would be ok if the weather would pick up and let me in the garden for a while, but hey ho I am better off than others, our Schools are all closed as from today, lets hope and pray the vaccine is found soon.

Ok, this week our lovely host is Billie, she would like the optional theme to be Use Ribbon or Twine.
Our Sponsor is the lovely Colour Of Love who so kindly provided our images.
You will find the shop HERE
Here is my card.
Coloured using pro markers and copics, waxed thread from stash DP CraftSensations.
I hope you like, she is very cute I think.
Thats it for another week, have a nice weekend, stay safe not worth taking a risk is it, life will get back to normal, who knows it may be better, especially if we can teach the greedy a lesson in sharing.

Happy Friday, [already] it does not feel like a week has passed but here we are..haha...

Our sponsor this week is Leanns world 101 who so kindly provided our images.

Now I love this little guy, he was coloured with a mix of Copic and Flex markers the DP is from a new pack I bought online recently Back to Basics Gingham and polka dots, its really gorgeous card.
Die Diamond press.
If I can find a challenge or two here.

Thats it, another challenge week done, how is everyone doing, this Covid virus is now doing a number on us all, do think the government should have done more by now to help stop the spread, lots of countries have already taken far more precautions than we have here in the UK. Its very worrying, I don't panic easy, but this is another thing all together, so stay safe friends.
Have a lovely weekend,

CraftyCatz challenge #495 ATG

Good morning, last one of February but at least we get an extra day to play with this year so thats good.
Our challenge this week is hosted by myself and I added the optional twist of Use Pretty Papers, so why not come and join us, we have a great sponsor again with goodies for you so nothing to loose.
Little Blue Button provided all the teams images and you can find them all here
For my card I used the image Lily in the garden, I think she's cute.
Coloured with Copics and Pro markers, the paper was from Ribbon Girl before she closed, its been a beautiful pad and I have only the odd one left.. don't you just hate using nice papers up...daft I know...
This is a topper, I do make the odd one like this ready to go on a card or a notebook or whatever takes my fancy.
Thats all for today, I hope your all surviving this crazy weather, I think we have finally stopped the roof from leaking, my youngest son got up there and did alot of work on it, so fingers crossed, the problem is because I live in such a wide open space we get blasted full throttle and it will get in no matter, but when I see all the poor souls flooded out I thank God for a simple leaky roof.  
Have a lovely weekend, thanks so much for looking in.x
