SON'S BIRTHDAY CARD.


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

How are all of you managing with the new measures that we have been given.
I am really scared to venture out after all it's still out there and I am 71 years of age so have been self isolating for 10 weeks now and I am into my 11th this week.
Luckily I have always been okay with my own company.

Finding it very hard to get into crafting though as I think my mojo is in sleep mode.

I visited a friends blog recently and she had a lovely card on her blog which I asked if I could case for my Son's Birthday, as I was struggling what to put on his card this year. 
Brenda used stamps which I didn't have so improvised.
You can find her lovely card
HERE 
Please pop over and give her some lovely comments and follow if you are not already following her.

So onto my version of Brenda's card.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
I inked some watercolour card stock with a mixture of DIs
to give a look of a night sky
 hopefully it looks like it.
I add some flicks of glitter pen mixed with water to look like small stars.
Then also added some blobs for bigger stars.
 I used a round punch for the moon and coloured it with different  inks  and finally added some white pearlised ink round the edges and accross the moon to give it some atmosphere.

I really appreciate every wonderful comment you make.

MOVING ALONG WITH THE TIMES...............FLOWERS CHALLENGE 118


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

It's the first of the month again, and it's time for another challenge over at
The theme this time around is flowers, and the lovely Jodie is your host for this challenge.
The challenge runs till the end of May.

So here is what I created for my DT.



This is an 8"x7" size card. 
I made my shaped card by using the die to creat it out of pale yellow card.
I lined the white background inside with pale yellow paper to match.
Then I cut out the lovely lace die in white.
This die is a Tatered Lace Die I bought some time ago and hadn't used it till now.
The Daffs are a Carnation Crafts Die and I decoupaged them and brushed Glossy Accents over them to make them shine and harden them.
The Swag Die is also a Carnation Crafts Die which I cut about to make the arch shape, and put gems in the centre of the little flowers.
Finished off with a organza bow.

Please pop over to the challenge blog to take a look at my team mates creations.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
