MOVING ALONG WITH THE TIMES DT..........OCTOBER ANIMALS AND OR BIRDS

 

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

 

I am still having probs with my arm, and hand although it seems a little easier at the moment so I mustn't speak too soon.

 

As it's the 1st of October it's time for a new challenge over at 

MOVING ALONG WITH THE TIMES 

The challenge runs to the end of the month, and we would like to see either Animals and or Birds on your creations please.

So I decided to make another tissue box.

 



The photos shows 3 different sides to the tissue box.

The images of the Hares is a Hunkydory one and I added some stickles to the flowers to make them shine.

On 1 of the smaller sides I drew some patterns with a metallic gelly roll pen as I didn't have another image of a Hare. 

This shows up on photo No 2 and I also drew some around the image on photo No 3.

Please pop over to the challenge blog to see the wonderful creations made by my team friends and join us if you can.

Thank you for your visit and precious time.

I really appreciate every visit, and wonderful comment.

Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

MOVING ALONG WITH THE TIMES CHALLENGE 122........CREATE A SCENE


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

As it's the 1st of the Month and time for a new challenge over at
The challenge runs from the 1st of the month to the 29th of September 2020.
Your host for this challenge is Tinz and she would like to see you Create A Scene on your entries.

Here is my DT card I created.



This is a 7"x7" size card.
I saw Sheila Halliwell from Hunkydory make a scene with Hunkydory card stock on C&C so this gave me the idea for my card.
Sheila's was a seaside scene.
 The background scene card was Hunkydory, I cut the grass by hand out of some Snippets of plain green card stock.
I punched a circle out of yellow card and cut it in half for my sun.
The Birds on the tree are Carnation Crafts dies and also the foilage are Carnation Crafts too.
The deer is a Tattered Lace die.
Finally I used some texture paste to create some subtle clouds.

Please pop over to the challenge blog to see the wonderful creations made by my team mates.

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

MALE BIRTHDAY CARD


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

I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend and you are all keeping well.

Today I have a Male Birthday Card for you.
I made this for my my stepdaughter's husband who has his own building business.



This is a 8"x8" size card I made from 2 A4 sheets of craft card as I had some craft envelopes to use up..
The work tools images are Hunkydory from one of their books of images.
They are made from quite thin paper so I glued then to card and edged them with a brown promarker.
All in all a quick card to make only one die cut involved the Happy Birthday.

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

60th BIRTHDAY CARD, BOX, AND TISSUE BOX


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

How are you coping with the heat. 
  I am not very good withthe hot weather it drains me of energy.
Luckily it's a lot cooler today at last.
So I thought I would post a card I made recently for one of my Daughter's bosses.

  






The card is an 8"x8" size, and a box I made to fit it.
I also made a Tissue box for her and was asked to put Daffodils on both as the lady in question was born in Wales like myself.
She was very pleased with everything.
The paper used is  Hunkydory Garden Treasures luckily I bought 2 of that collection.
The die used around the aperture is a Tattered Lace one, the Happy Birthday die is a Paper Boutique one.
The Daffs, Butterflies and Foilage are Cranation Crafts dies.
Numbers dies are cheap from Amazon.
The little cards inside were made with a small daffs die that I was lent, I believe it was a Joanna Sheen die that came with one her magazines a few years ago, and I coloured them with promarkers.
Then I punched out 2" circles with snippets of paper left over from the tissue box, and cut them in half to make a bowl for the Daffs to sit in.
Sorry I forgot to photograph that.

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