Good morning........

The Crafty Catz girls are back from our 2 week break and ready to go, but firstly, we would like to welcome our newest team member
Please visit her lovely blog and say hello

This week I have set  the challenge  for you and it is to use STITCHING, REAL OR FAUX AND ALSO USE MATERIAL..(Lace, ribbon , felt, or any other material  is acceptable)

This week see's a challenge with an option... take up the challenge with the option and you will be entered into both prize draws for both sponsors....But please remember to state what if any material has been used.
If you choose to leave out the option of material  and just cover the stitching  you will be entered into the  prize from our second sponsor

 We are sponsored by K. KENNY who are offering 5 digi's of the winners choice!

Digi and rubber stamps from KennyK are a fun and edgy way to add the perfect dose of attitude and style to all of your creations!

His signature style can be seen throughout his various collections of sexy pinup babes, sweet 'n sassy girls, cool rockin' dudes, kid’s stuff, retro characters and more

who are giving these fab dies ..........
