For my card I used a Magnolia Santa which I LOVE...

Coloured with the usual Pro and Flexi's
Lots of Glamour dust
Decoupaged the sack and some packages, then forgot the picture..
you'll just have to take my word for
everything else is from stash
I haven't made one of these cards for ages, so it did make a nice change, also forgot to photograph the inside, DOH....I am sorry girls, my head is all over the place...

I am entering into the following challenges.
BearlyMine Anything Goes..
SimonSays AnythingGoes.

Well are you ready for December....I think my Tree will be going up on Sunday..

I am sorry I wasn't around much this week, I have not been my best, so for once
I did as I should, hate when something lingers
Feeling better now....touch wood...
You all have a fab week-end, I promise, all being well, I will visit you..
Take care, hugs

CraftyCatz challenge 208..Tags and Bags


Good morning, hope you all had a good week..
It's gone very cold here, but we still have no snow..
Yep, I love the stuff..

OK, our challenge this week at
Is Tags and Bags
Our lovely Jac chose the theme and you can make both or just one
entirely up to you
We have two fab sponsors this week for you to..

Here's my offering, with a gorgeous image from our sponsor.
I made the bag from brown paper, then added some DP and a die from memory box, the Tag image is coloured with pro and flexi markers, ribbon from stash
She is double is BettieBow and you can find her here
I hope you can find time to come and join us, I should imagine most of us will be making Tags and Bags right now, amongst other things...

Thanks so much for your visit, will pop round to see you soon..
Have a good week-end and stay warm..
Big hugs,

Happy Monday .....

       Hi to you all, hope this finds you well at the start of a new week...
They really are flying by aren't they....
Just popped on to show some more crafty makes.
Oh no, not more bird
In my defence, one is  officially, a Post Box, already has a message in for next
This little wreath is Mia's, for her bedroom door she says..
It was made from a Pizza plate, just cut the middle out and wrap in ribbon.
I dread to think what her Mum will say when she takes this lot
Hope you like them.

Thanks for popping over, hugs Janette.xx

Morning Lovelies,and a very Happy 1st November, can you believe it, get Bonfire night done with and we are 'snookered'...... Hope you all had a fab Halloween night and got lots of sweets.....
This week at CraftyCatz we have our lovely team mate Nina who would like you to go Paper Piecing mad, we have a wonderful sponsor again this week, that's Digi Darla, who gave us some sweet images to play with......and the winner gets to choose 5 images...

Here's my card and since my printer had a break with reality, 'Thanks' go to AuntySue, she very kindly sent the image to me and even printed one on patterned paper for me, typical crafter, so kind......
I pieced her coat, scarf and hat, I just loved this little cutie and know I will use her again, ribbon is Dovecraft but the buttons are stash and the fence die is Craftysentiments AND was a candy from Sue....gotta love that the leaves in front are from my Virginia Creeper, the colours at this time of year are just stunning, oh I do love Autumn so.....
Thas about it really, I hope that those of you who suffered the recent storms are all well, I know so many were without power, but as long as everyone is safe we have to be thankful....
Speak to you all soon, take care and have a lovely week-end...hugs Janette.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
