MOVING ALONG WITH THE TIMES DT.............ANYTHING CHRISTMAS


Hi, and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Well I'm nearly about 24 hours late posting my DT post as I couldn't get to my computer till tonight as my craft room was full of kitchen appliances.
It's time for another challenge over at
It is the B Teams turn again, and the lovely Caz is our host for this challenge, and she would like to see 
Anything Christmas on your entries.
The challenge runs from Thursday the 6th of December to Wednesday the 19th of December, and closes at 6PM.
Please pop along to the challenge to see my wonderful team mates creations.
So here is a card I made weeks ago especially for this challenge as I knew things would be hectic now.



This is a 7"x6" tent style card I made.
I used an embossing folder given to me by a friend with this lovely image of the Robin, and Holly on.
I used white Hunkydory plain card to emboss this on, and then I sprayed it with Crafters Companion Pearl Diamond Sparkle Spray to give it the pearlised sheen.
Then I added some waxes which I have had for many a year in various colours to the different areas, and then finally adding some red pearls for the berries, and a little black stone to the Robins eye.
The greeting sentiment was a buy from The Works.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I really appreciate every visit , and wonderful comment.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

ANOTHER QUICK CHRISTMAS CARD


Hi, and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Firstly I must apologise for not visiting you, but on top of my Hubbies health problems the housing association in our sheltered housing scheme are modernising the kitchens, and the storage heating system.
Good news this maybe, but it's causing me such a lot of extra work at a time I don't need it.
They start work on the kitchen on the 26th of November so everything has been pulled out of cupboards, and such.
They are also fitting in new storage heaters, and I am getting one in my craft room which I haven't had before only an expensive one to run at the mo, this means a big move around of my craft room to accommodate the work.
I can't believe how much stuff I have thrown out so far. LOL.
Well I have been making cards for over 20 years now so you do accumulate quite a lot in that time.
Not sure when things will be back to normal, but you will know when I start posting more regularly.

In the meantime here is quick Christmas card I made before all the upheaval.


This is a DL size card.
The image if the door is a Hunkydory one just added some snow, and the die cut wreath from their Moonstones Die, and some gems to make it glitter.

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

A QUICK CHRISTMAS CARD


Hi, and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Hubby is still quite weak, but has lots more colour in his cheeks now.
He is on his last week of injections, and hopefully will improve from then on.
We may have to try,  and get some physio for his right arm and leg as they are still very weak, and he has to think carefully when using them as it doesn't seem to come naturally to him any more.
This week he has had a heart monitor on for a week too so they can look at what's going on there.
Things are very hectic with Hospital appointments, and as he always helped me so much around the house I am having to do it all which is quite exhausting.
As I don't sleep too well with my RLS I quite often can be crafting at night.
Here is a quick card I made.


This is a 4"x4" size card.
The paper with the forest scene is Hunkydory, and the fox is a freebie stamp which I stamped with Izink Ink, and water coloured with the the Izink Inks, and then added some black sharpie for the eyes, snout, and the edge of the paws.
I also added some white gel pen to his tail, ears, and his neck.
Then I created a shadow under his body with Memento London Fog Ink.
Forgot to say I fussy cut him out and adhered him to the scene.

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

CHRISTMAS CARD


Hi, and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Update on Hubby we have now found out by phoning the Doctor, and saying he was still very tired, and just walking to the bathroom was exhausting him, that he is Anaemic, very low in Vitamin B12, and Folic Acid.
This showed up on his bloods they took at the Hospital when in AE, but nothing was done about it.
Gives you real confidence in the health system doesn't it.
He is now having B12 injections twice a week, and taking iron tablets, and folic acid ones.
Hopefully we will see some improvement soon.

While looking after him I have sneaked a few odd hours in the evening when I am not exhausted myself to catch up on some Christmas cards.
So I was delighted to see the Allsorts Challenge this week was Christmas.
So here is one of my makes.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
The paper on the front is Hunkydory I just added some snow bought from Mrs Duck's craft shop which you will find a link to on the right side of my blog if you are interested.
The VW car with the Christmas Tree is a freebie stamp from Creative Stamping  Magazine.
I stamped it with my Misti, and Versafine Ink and then heat embossed it with black embossing powder.
Coloured it with Promarkers, and then cut it out and glued it to the scene.
I used Memento London Fog to create the tyre marks in the snow.
Just remembered I forgot the snow on the car, and tree. LOL.
The sentiment was also a freebie stamp, and the inside verse was one too.
The lovely stitched squares inside were a buy from my winnings at the Allsorts Challenge, and are from Swedish House Crafts. 

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I really appreciate your visits especially as I haven't had time to reciprocate.
Lots of crafty love.   JENNY. 

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.
