YOUNGEST GRANDDAUGHTER'S BIRTHDAY CARD


Hi and welcome to all my wonderful blog friends, and visitors.

I do hope you have had a good weekend despite the very cold spell we are having. 

Just a quick reminder that Rudolf Day starts on Wednesday the 25th.

Last Wednesday was my youngest Granddaughter's Birthday, and this is the card I made her as that image looks a lot like her.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
The image is from a Crafter's Companion Paint Poppets CD
The paper is also from that CD.
Just added a few things from my stash to it.

Thank you so much for your visit, and time I really do appreciate it.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

BUTTERFLIES SHAKER ANNIVERSARY CARD


Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.

I do hope everyone has a wonderful weekend as the weather has been mighty cold for quite a few days.

Managed to finish my card to enter the Butterfly Challenge at long last. 
 The challenge calls for J for Jewels, and or Jade.
So here is what I made not sure if colour is Jade though.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
The die is a Nbus one which I bought recently.
The pearlecent card was paper which I used double sided sticky paper to glue it to card so it would die cut easier.
Behind the shaker part I used Pixie Powders on Ivory pearlecent card.

Thank you so much for your visit, and the wonderful comments you make, they really boost my day.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

MIXED MEDIA JOURNAL COVER


Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.

Sorry I have been missing again, sometimes life just limits blogging because of everything you have to do, and as I take things at a snails pace now time seems to run out on me. 
So thank you for your visit, and understanding.

I have another thing to cross off my crafty list of things to try.
I bought a book about 2 years ago to do some journaling, and never got round to using it till now, so as it's a new year I thought I must cross that one off my list of things to try.
So here is my mixed media cover I created, as I am a newbie to this type of thing I hope it looks okay.


I started by using black gesso to prime the cover then I added my items which included some kitchen roll for texture, and covered them with Starlight Paints in Agean, and Diamond colours.

Lots of crafty love.   JENNY.

INK DUSTED STAMPED CARD


Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
Have been having trouble with my back since taking down the Christmas Decs, and my DH has caught my cold bug I had before Christmas.
Now that's a brilliant start to a New Year, but I must not complain as there are people a lot worse off than me.
So I am sending big hugs to anyone in need of one.

Now I was really struggling with the Butterfly Challenge this time around, but suddenly thought about how to create this card this afternoon.



This is a A5 size card.
I matted it with some black card, and then I ink dusted some white card with Memento Inks to create the scene.
The little butterflies are from a stamp I won on the Butterfly Challenge last year.
Thank you so much for your visit.
I really do appreciate your time visiting me.
I have quite a few Birthdays this month so I am going to be a busy lady.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
