FLORAL CARD


Hi and welcome to all my craft loving friends, and visitors.
Well haven't we had some really hot days, and nights these last few days.
I do hope you are all coping okay with it.
I am very lucky as I have a ceiling fan in my craft room, but it's still very hot.

I looked after my grandchildren on Monday, and caught the sun while sitting in the park while my granddaughter played on the equipment.
Silly me there was a lovely breeze, and I forgot that it can cause you to burn more easily.
I have freckled skin which is prone to burning easily, and at my age I should have known better.

Today I have a card I made yesterday for the Allsorts Challenge.



I am back to my fave size of card a 8"x8". 
The paper was a free download from the C&C club website, and isn't it very pretty so I just had to use it.
I decoupaged the Hydrangea in the middle, and added some stickles to the center of the flowers, as I didn't want to cover up that lovely paper.
The sentiment is a Creative Expression stamp.

Thank you for your visit, and time.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

PLAYING WITH INK DUSTING AGAIN AND SNIPPETS


Hi and welcome to all my craft loving friends, and visitors.
May I say a big thank you to my newest follower, and thank you so much for joining me on my crafting journey.
I do hope you are all enjoying your weekend, as the weather has not been too good.

I have been playing with my ink dusters again, and I hope this card looks okay.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
I used a snippet of card to do my ink dusting, and stamping on with Memento Inks.
Some of the black card used was also snippets so I will of to join my playground friends again this week.
I was one of the featured cards in the playground last week with my little book so I am really a happy bunny today.
I used the Delicate Vines Inkilicious Stamp for the background.
Sorry about the inside photo, but for some reason when I photograph the inside of some cards I get a yellow colour near the fold especially on white card.

Thank you so much for your visit, and the wonderful comments you make.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Well it's Friday again so soon, and time to join ERIKA HERE

This is all just for fun, but a great way to show some of your older work.
We all have days off from bolgging so to post an Oldie, can perhaps let someone see somthing they may have missed the first time round.
You don't have to have posted it before it just needs to be something you have made in the past.
So go on and join us we would love to see more of you join us.
Here is mine for this week some boxes I made out of the left over card when I make my boxes for an8"x8" card.


These measure 4"x4" in size.
The left one I used some Mandala Peel offs to create.
The right one is Die Cuts.

Thank you for your visit, and the wonderful comments you make I very much appreciate your feed back on my work.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

MOVING ALONG WITH THE TIMES DT CARD..............CLEAN AND SIMPLE


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

It's time for my Design Team card for 
It's the B Teams turn, and the lovely Sue B is our host for this forthnights challenge, and she would like your entries to be Clean and Simple.
We don't have any prizes to offer, but we love to see your wonderful creations, and you could be chosen as one of the top 3.
Now I have to say I did struggle with this one as those of you that know me, know I have to sit on my hands to do a clean and simple card, and I couldn't think of a design to do.
You think putting less on a card would be easy, but not for me.


This is just under 6" in height, and just under 4" in width.
I must say I am not pleased with how this came out.
I bought some Brilliance White Ink to use on it, and it soaked into the card for some reason so I drew around the stamped image with a white gel pen.

Before I go when I was at my daighter's fund raising event there were people there showing owls.
Now as I love owls, and have them dotted all over my house in china form, and pictures of them.
 I just had to go and see them.
Here is a photo of me holding a Barn Owl.
It didn't come out too good as we were surronded by trees, and the photo was taken with a phone.


Thank you so much for your visit.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

PASTEL INKED BUTTERFLY CARD


Hi and welcome to all my craft loving friends, and visitors.
Thank you so much for your visit, and time.
I very much appreciate every visit, and comment.

I do hope everyone is feeling well, and for those that may be feeling under the weather, I am sending big hugs to help make you feel a little better.

Today I have a card I made as a thank you for a blog friend, and realized I hadn't shown it yet.
So this will fit the bill over at the Allsorts Challenge I think.



This is a 6"x 6" size card.
I heat embossed the butterfly stamp all over the card with white embossing powder, and then used colour cloud Rose Blush, and Fresh Grass inks to give the pink and green.
I didn't have a yellow ink but I had a Pan Pastel Chalk which I didn't realize would cover the white embossed image so that's a lesson I have learn't.
The big butterfly is a very old big wooden stamp, and coloured in with my Chameleon Pens.
I added some wire and beads for the antenna.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

3x3 MINI BOOK MADE WITH SOME SNIPPETS



Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
A few of you asked how we did last week at the fund raising event.
It was over 2 days last weekend and they took over £1,000 in all, and my stall took £73 over the 2 days.
This is going towards gym equipment for the clients that live at my daughter's place of work.
They all have learning problems, and health issues so it was for a very good cause.

Today I have a 3x3 inch mini book I made because I have been wanting to try this for a long time.




The book actually measures 3 and a quarter inches for the cover, and 3 inches for the pages.
I used a 12x12 size paper for the pages.
For the front and back cover I used a few snippets of paper, some snippets of lace, I also used snippets of card for the tags that go in the pockets.
So I i'll be off to join my playgrounds friends again this week at the snippets playground.
Anyone interested in making one of these can find the U Tube video
 Part 1HERE
Part 2 HERE

Thank you for your visit and time I very much appreciate every visit, and comment.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
