BABY BOY CARD


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

Sorry I was not about yesterday, but I was dog sitting for my Son as they were away camping for one night.
Looking after my Grandchildren tomorrow as well as their parents are back to work tomorrow after their hols this is my elder Son's family.

Really proud of my Granddaughter Jess Bonfield as she got so many A/s in her A Levels, and is going to Southampton  University, and was offered a place in Oxford too, but prefers Southampton.
Considering she had a very bad throat infetction while taking these exams she did so well I think.
Here she is with my Son on the right, her Mum on the left, and my Grandson next to her.
This is my youngest Son, and his family.

The papers, and the image are from the Joanna Sheen Baby Love CD.

BOX FOR THE 60th BIRTHDAY CARD


Hi and welcome to all my craft loving friends, and visitors.

Sorry I didn't get around to commenting on everyone yesterday, but the old RLS kicked in while I was doing it, and that aggravates my knees and hips too, so I had to stop, and walk around to try and stop it.
Not a great deal of success either especially if I'm overtired.
Still that's enough of my complaining I am sure there are more people with more troubling health probs than me.
I am going to try and catch up today though.

As stated in my earlier post I had to make a box for the 60th Birthday card so here it is.


This is the box I make for an 8"x8" size card.
Luckily I had the same Graphic 45 papers in a 12x12 pad to use for the box.
Computer generated sentiment.
I made the pattern inside the circle with a 1" circle punch chopped in half.
I rather like how this looks, and will use it again sometime stuck a button and some twine where it didn't quite fit.

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

BABY GIRL CARD


Hi and welcome to all my craft loving friends, and visitors.

I have so many cards to post after making so many cards for my Daughter's works so the last lot I didn't bother to photograph.
I may regret that decision one day when I am stuck for a idea or Mr Mojo decides to go walk about.
 This is one of the cards I made for the fete, and left for them to sell in the reception.



This is a 6"x6" size card.
The papers are from the Joanna Sheen's Baby Love CD which is no longer available.
I inked the edges with Worn Lipstick DOI.
The pram is a TL die.
The baby items are a cheap China die from E Bay.
If anyone is considering buying these dies they cut perfectly, and are brilliant value for money, you just have to wait 2 or 3 weeks for delivery.
The outside of the doily is a Chinese die, and the plain matt is a stitched Gummiapan die I bought with my winnings at Allsorts Challenge, and are from Swedish House Crafts.

Thank you so much for your visit and your precious time as I know time is precious to all of us.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

HUSBAND'S 57th ANNIVERSARY CARD


Hi and welcome to all my craft loving friends, and visitors.

A neighbour popped in the other day quite late in the afternoon to ask if I had any Anniversary cards as it was her 57th Wedding Anniversary the next day, and she needed a card for her hubby.
Now I only make Anniversary cards when asked , and don't keep any stock of them which I must rectify.
So I made her this card specially in about an hour. 



This is a 8"x8" size card.
The papers are Graphic 45.
The numbers are wooden which I painted with Starlight paint Agean
to try and match the papers.
This paint dries in mins so it's perfect.
The heart die is a Tonic one.

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

RED,WHITE, AND BLUE SEASIDE CARD


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

This morning I managed to make my entry into the Allsorts Challenge this week.
The challenge theme is the colours of your countries flag so as mine is Red, White, and Blue this is what I made.
I was tempted to use the colours of the Welsh flag where I was born, but was not so sure if I was able to use that.
I went with a seaside image as that lends itself to the colours.
Made a boob,boob, and had to redo the image after photoing the first one as the sea horizon was lopsided didn't notice it till I had it in photo editing program good job I had another image I could use as you get 2 sheets of the same images.
Think maybe it's still slightly lopsided not good with straight lines due to my bad eyesight.



This is a 6"x6" size card.
The papers are from B&M.
The image is a Joanna Sheen's book of Faye Whittaker lovely drawings.
I wanted it to look like you were looking through a telescope.
Cut the bunting by hand. 

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