Crafty Catz Challenge Blog - Love is in the Air

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends

The weekend is nearly here. I hope you have something nice planned. It is going to be a busy one for us. In the evening on Saturday there will be a party to celebrate my in-laws 70th Wedding Anniversary. We have helped with some of the preparations. I have also arranged for a card to be sent from the Queen. We are staying in a Premier Inn over night so we can help with the tidying up after the party. There will be a dash home on Sunday  so our daughter and son-in-law can bring the rabbits and hamster to stay. They will be travelling to America next week. I am so glad I got the rabbit room ready last weekend.

Being Friday the new challenge starts on the Crafty Catz Challenge blog the theme is Anything Goes with the optional twist of Love is in the Air. The sponsor is Lacy Sunshine.


In the background I used some of the dies from the Sandwich Box die set from John Next Door. I am very impressed by how well these dies cut. The patterned paper was in my stash and matched the colours I had used for the image. 


The sponsor is Lacy Sunshine there are some wonderful images in the store if you click on the logo you will be taken there. 


The image I used is called Rory's Love Graffiti and is available HERE.  She was printed onto Neenah card stock and coloured with Promakers. 


The is a circle stamp I do find it very useful especially if I haven't left much room for a sentiment. 


I hope you have a great weekend. Take care. 


Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie

How exciting for your in-laws to be getting a card from the Queen!! I think you will be having fun with the bunnies! We had a bunny for a little while, but our dogs wouldn't leave him alone so we had to re-home him. Your card is adorable! I am loving the die in the background!

You have coloured it perfectly.
Love the paper used and doesn't John's die look super that way, and you are right they do cut like a dream and fall out of the die easily.
Have a great wekend and congrats to the happy couple on such a big Anniversary.

Whoops I’ve missed a few posts
How was the Jamie Oliver recipe Both myself and my daughter had the book for Christmas too I’ve yet to use it but my daughter has tried quite a few
How was the party? I’ve enjoyed scrolling back through your posts I especially liked the Sympathy card Not easy to make but I liked your thinking on that we spend time thinking and remembering whilst we make it
