lady in red

Another Friday comes and goes lol........ Just where is all this weather coming from ???? and it's not over yet, It's heart-breaking for the ones flooded out. Here at Crafty Catz we have another fab challenge, our Boss lady Carol,  would like to see your ladies in red!!

We are sponsored by Rick St Dennis who are offering 3 images of the winners choice



Mei Flower


Either a £20 worth of goodies
or a £20 voucher to spend in our online store.
added 31/7/13 They no longer post to the USA

(Aunty Sue and I always head here to stock up on all our tape and goodies at the Leigh Craft Fair... I have almost as much ribbon as they do lol )

For this card I used DC charcoal prints, mounted on to red card, Image from our sponsor coloured with promarkers, ribbon from Mei flower, lace from Aberkhan dew drops, flower and sentiments from stash....
I love this image as it reminds me of the sixties when we would soak our net underskirts in sugar and water to make them stiff, we always wore 3 or four at once for a better effect, yes we did look as smart as our boys who were in sparkle fleck suits and Slim Jim ties and polished winklepickers! lol And yes again, we did wear gloves when we went out in our best clothes!!!

I would like to enter the following challenges;

Milk coffee challenge ----------- Girly

Craft room Challenge --------- Ribbon and lace

Lunagirl moonbeams ----------- vintage  red

Glitter and sparkle ----------valentines add some red

4 Krafty girls ----------- anything goes

Thank you for your visit today and hope you are all keeping safe and dry, I have finally got the decorating finished and I will show you the dining room in my next post lol

Hugs Tilly

Gorgeous card Tilly.
She's the perfect lady in red!!

Now you're giving your age away! I never knew about the soaking underskirts in sugar and water...did your legs get sticky if it rained?

Are you going to the Leigh show in April? If Phils not working away then I might get him to take me.

Big hugs
