CraftyCatz challenge #278...CAS


Good morning and welcome to my blog...
By this time we should know who our new PM is, who knows, we may get lucky and get a Government that does what it said they would  BEFORE the election....HA!!!!!

Anyway, onto our challenge this week, chosen by myself, it's a CAS week, we are sponsored by
CRAFTY SENTIMENTS,
who very kindly gave us the images to use this week..
Here is my card, VERY CAS..
Cardstock Paper Mill, Flex marker add the colour and ribbon was in stash, pc generated sentiment..

That's that once again, boy oh boy are the weeks flying by, every time I turn round another month has gone...keep holding out for the summer to come around, we had such severe gales at the start of the week here in the NW that all my little plants in my mini greenhouse were thrown everywhere, some are done for, I live in hope that my baskets survive....can't even hang them out yet...poor little buggers...lol...
SO, on that happy note, thanks again for all your support, love to read the comments, see you soon, have a good week-end,hugs, 
Janette.xxx

Something other than a card...


OK, so I lost my card making Mojo and just don't seem to be able to kick start it again, SO, in between my being gormless and  drifting into space, I've been doing a little bit of sewing and crochet, although the latter hurts my hands at times so I have to do everything in moderation....( omg I am waffling again...)

Well, over the long week-end Mia and I made her Rag-doll, finally, I have no pics as she ran home to show mum and not seen it since..lol..will get....and this cute bag, well I think it is....I bought all the materials in a fat quarter bundle last year I think, from HobbyCraft on line, I got a fab deal at the time..anyways, I saw this Debbie Shore bag and thought I'd have ago...hope you like...
It's reversable, although it doesn't have to be, but I really like it, so maybe that alone will give my mojo a shove...
I am adding this into the challenge  at CraftySentiments, bags, boxes etc;
Thanks so much for your visit...
Hope your not getting to battered by this awful wind and rain again...how wierd, one day sun the next lashing down and bitter cold....
Hugs Janette.xxx

This is a very quick post from me, just playing around with a gorgeous freebie from MIC this week, I was so pleased to receive this, designed with the 1st WW in mind and it came with a sentiment too...I hope to have done it justice, the inspiration for the layout was also from the MIC ...as I seem to have none of my own at this time....mojo gone on hols, hope it returns really soon...
coloured with the usual and chalked background....
Thanks for the visit, have a nice week-end if only chilling out on the sofa...
Hugs to all, Janette.xx
