 I got a new laptop at Christmas - notebook to be precise - so I've just been transferring some of my files across. This is the start of the clearout of what's left from last year! 

I KNOW I'm doing a lot of JK stuff lately but I love them! This one's just a journal page, unfinished - or is it?  I haven't yet decided which of my journals it will go into, which is why I haven't trimmed it - though it may fit into the one I just made, which I'll show you another day. These are digital images.

This one was just to use up some of the images lying around. I'd had the colours in my head for a couple of days when I made it. I like the way they work together.

I had planned to use this as a tag, then decided to mount it onto a larger die cut. I like these dies and have enough cut to make a mini book with them. I'm looking forward to making that. This one was an experiment in swiping rough stripes of colour across the card (Oxides) then spritzing with water to see how it ended up. I clearly added more water later, which is a shame because it turned out really well. I think you can still see the stripes a little. It should work well with most colour families.
This one - shock horror! - isn't made with JK images 😊
They're Katzelcraft images and always make me smile. I love the furniture stamps but don't use them so often, which is a shame... I did use Seedless Preserves again, though.
I stamped lots of these sentiments to use as and when I needed them, so I used more than one here.
I'm struggling with a connection speed of less than 5mb at the moment 😞 so I hope this uploads!

These are fun pieces Cath. Glad you decided to share them. Those JK folks are adorable. I love the 2 girls with the tweeting bird. The expression of the one on the right. That made me smile. Thanks for the fun inspiration, and I hope you get your computer switched over soon. Happy weekend. Hugs-Erika

Well, I am doing a lot of catching up at the moment, so pleased to see so much crafting.
Adore that crayon girl not seen her but she is fabulous! Love the hair and the glasses and you have coloured her in so beautifully, the turquoise looks good against that fab background.
Your next two are lovely too although I do think on the arch shaped one the girl on the right looks as if she has a black eye. Perhaps that was your intention with that quote.
The katzelcraft one is brilliant - I do like the bookcase at the back, such a great stamp to have and those two are obviously good friends enjoying one another's company. Lovely stuff Cath.
Hugs, Neet xx

I love the Janet Klein figures that she has done for Aall and Create! Your cards are such fun and I'm loving these colours! The Katzelcraft stamp is a treasure - love it! Hugs, Chrisx

Hi Cath! Long time! I am very behind in my blog visiting and commenting, trying to catch up now that we have recovered from Winter Storm Uri aka Snovid-21. All that purple makes me so happy! Love them all. You do Janet's stamps so well and of course the stenciled backgrounds never disappoint. Wow, those gals aren't already on furniture to stamp? That's dedication stamping all that separately. I can only hope they were made to go on that sofa. If not, kudos for matching them up. Hope your internet gets faster! XOX
