Friday 8 February 2019


Good morning, it's almost the weekend and time for a new challenge at Crafty Catz, asa always we have an optional theme for our Anything Goes Challenge, this week it's Jac's turn to host and she chose the lovely theme of 'hearts and flowers'. Our fabulous sponsor this time is SheepSki Designs

who provided the DT with some beautiful digis to play with.

The image I chose is Jo's Daffodils, I've always loved daffodils, to me they're the epitome of spring, so bright and beautiful. I used to buy them every week for my lovely Mum whilst they were in season. She used to love watching them open out from tight buds to a burst of sunshine colours, a touch of springtime to brighten her day (she was bedridden for a long time).
 I coloured the image with copics, distressed the edges and added a bit of stencilling.
As always there's some fabulous inspiration from the rest of the DT to be enjoyed HERE, and of course we'd love to have you play along, remember you don't have to use the's always anything goes at Crafty Catz.
Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous weekend

Beautiful card Chris I love those papers and the image can't wait for all the bulbs to flower and the feel of Spring to appear, so cold and wet at the moment, I feel the need to get onto the garden, lol.
