CraftyCatz challenge 180......


Good morning I hope your all well and fighting fit...Before I do anything else, can I just say a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY to our lovely friend Christine...aka..Tilly Trotter...have a good one and many happy returns of the day......xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

This week at CraftyCatz we have our lovely Beth wanting us to use the colour purple.....oh who remembers that film with Whoopi Goldberg and Danny Glover...wasn't it fabulous, I had it on tape for years...when we still had video tape...lol...
Anyway......can you make something purple-ish and come and join in with us....we have a fab sponsor and I just know you'll want this prize......



Fabulous or what..and here is abit about our sponsor...Crafty Ribbons is a ribbon emporium, we are passionate about ribbons and want to share our fantastic ribbons with others. Our range of Christmas ribbons is second to none.
Remember when we only used ribbons to add a bow to our hair, or tie up a birthday parcel?  Ribbons are now a "must-have" for all types of craft.  Whether your project requires satin, sheer, silk, grosgrain, gingham or polka dot ribbon we have them all!  Lots and lots of different colours in a range of widths.
Need a little bit of ribbon inspiration - then have a look at our projects, or visit our blog they use nothing but ribbon.  Go on, have a try... It's worth it !

Now, last Saturday was the most gorgeous day we have had here in the UK since last summer....(if any of you remember that week last year..lol...)
Anyway, off into the garden we did go....me and grandkids that is, we had a great day and was worn out by tea time....I felt really pleased with myself at having made a start on things and was looking forward to Sunday....HA....it's been rubbish since...I mean...is that it...and now we are being told to expect rain and winds again....AND...I got bit to pieces with a horsefly of all things, seven bites on my legs and talk about itch....and now another chest infection, which I think is because one minute we're roasting then freezing again....is it worth it,well yes, I had a blast with the kiddo's so it was.....but does anyone know where our weather is please, we are getting really fed up now, sod the stiff upper lip, we need some sun....lol

Rant over, I hope that you have a nice week-end,don't get to sunburnt will you...hugs and all that stuff, Janette.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Good Morning , at last it's Friday, bet you never thought I'd say that, this has been a long week....not said that in a while either.....I think it has alot to do with the kids being off School, I have been forced to lounge about and eat chocolate, make silly treats like eggie bread in between meals then swear we didn't....I know it's naughty but Grandparents are allowed such stupidity...as long as the kids don't offer you up to Mums and dads as a bargaining chip later...lol......we also  watch films....... like The Sandlot Kids, See Spot Run, Hocus Pocus, UP, Ice Age  etc; etc;....lol....it's a hard life if you don't weaken...lol.....and we still have another week to go...YEAHHHHHH.....we will need the name of a good Gym though...very soon.....

Well then, this week at CraftyCatz we have a great challenge for you of Anything Goes, an all round favourite, we also have a fab sponsor who has 3packs of Die-Cuts they want to give one lucky winner
