Challenge #157 - Add Texture

Good morning all and hope that you're ready to join us here at CraftyCatz for a new challenge? It's Kim here with you this week with the challenge to 'Add Texture' to your crafty creations.
But before we get to the new challenge let's see who was our winner from last week with their 'Male Card'. We had some wonderful cards for the male of the species! But we can only have one winner and  Mr Random picked number 58 - Glittertastic - with this fantastic creation

A brilliant 'Bob the Builder'! 
Please contact Carol at to arrange your prize 

Now, on to this week's challenge - and we want to see some texture on your creations - so time to delve into your stash for fabrics, lace, twine, felt, ribbons, etc.! We're sponsored this week by The Stamp Fairy
