LAST YEARS CHRITMAS CARD FOR HUBBY

Hi and good morning to all my talented followers and visitors.
Well it's Sunday morning, I hope you all had a fab day yesterday,
and that you managed to slot some crafting into your day.
THANK YOU for all your wonderful comments on my cards.
I really do appreciate everyone that you make.
My card today is one I made for my hubby for Christmas last
year.
I know there isn't a lot of Christmas on it but my hubby loves
teddy bears and I thought the saying was so lovely, I had to use
it.
We both have a little banter with each other, I ask him what his
name is and he answers Fred Bear.
Another silly thing he does is roll his eyes round and round, 
just like Nookie Bear used to.
I know this all sounds very silly to you but it's just a bit fun
between us, and keeps us cheerful and laughing.
Now we all need a good laugh at least once a day don't we.
Well enough of my babbling, I hope you like the card.

This card was made with an 8x8 size card.
Matted with mirri card and then card stock from Hunkydory.
The topper I used was also Hunkydory too.
I cut the husband on my Cricut Machine, no I didn't actually cut
him on the Cricut Machine, I mean the words. lol.
I then added some punched snowflakes and some gold pva
glue dots.
A quick and easy card to make.
Thank you again for your visit.
Have a wonderful crafty Sunday everyone.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

FAYE ON THE CHRISTMAS TREE

Hi and another good morning to my wonderful talented followers
and visitors.
I hope you had a brilliant day yesterday, and managed to 
combine some craft into your day.
I heard on the grape vine that some of you had better weather.
The weather here was quite mild dry and some sunshine.
THANK YOU for all your wonderful comments.
I really do appreciate every one.
I went to a coffee morning yesterday in aid of the McMillan Nurses.
There were lots of yummy cakes tea and coffee.
I put on a stone just looking at them. lol.

My card today is one I have just finished.
I bought this image because the little girl on the tree was
called Faye and that is the name of my Great Granddaughter
so you can see why I had to buy the image.
Funnily enough the image is just like my little Faye.
I hope you like it.

                    Click on the photo to enlarge the picture.

Now inside view of the card.



I made this 8x8 card out of an A3 white card stock.
I matted it with blue card stock and some Christmas paper
inside.
The front I used white card with a Spellbinders Grand Labels
aperture cut out.
I then distressed it with Milled Lavender Distress Ink, and 
stamped snowflakes with same ink.
I added my coloured image done with Promarkers.
Then I added some Venetian Accents cut up to the edges of 
the aperture and corners.
I punched out some snowflakes in contrasting colours, and 
finished it off with a big lace bow.
I have been asked how I do my bows, well I use the 
Crafterscompanion Ultimate Pro purple case, and I follow
the instructions given by Sara on C and C when she 
demonstrates it.
Basically you get a length of ribbon bring it round the pegs
cross it over in the front take it back round the back of the 
pegs and do the same a third time.
This gives you a lovely big bow.
I hope that makes sense to you my description.
Thank you again for sparing the time to visit me and leave
your comments.
Have a wonderful crafty day everyone.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

BLACK AND WHITE CARD

Hi and good morning to all my wonderful talented followers
and visitors.
I hope you all had a really great day yesterday, and managed 
to combine some crafting in to your day.
I expect a lot of you did manage to craft with the dreadful
weather the whole of the country seems to be having, you can't
do much else.
So I suppose there is something good about bad weather.
I just feel so dreadfully sorry for those who get flooded out
in these bad weather times.
THANK YOU for all your wonderful comments and visits.
I really do appreciate every one that is made.

My card today is one I made for one of my older 
granddaughters.


This one is a quick card but I think it's quite effective.
I started with an 8x8 shaped white card blank
Matted with black card and some black and white check card.
A little tip when I want to make the inside of the card the same
and I haven't got any more of the card. I photocopy the card on
my printer, and then I have a matching card or paper to go in
the inside. Sorry can't show the inside as I wrote on it before
I photographed it.
I made the flower out of a reel scolloped organza I bought
many moons ago from C and C.
I added a button to the center some black stone swags, some
white stones to the corners, and some little bows.
I hope you like it.

Now I thought I would show you a baby blanket a friend
asked me to make. I never go by a pattern I just make this
from my head.


Just thought you might like to see that I do like other crafting
as well as card making.
Well that's all for today folks. 
Thank you again for your visit.
Have a wonderful crafty day everyone.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

TAG No 3

Hi and good morning dear blog friends and visitors.
Well it's Wednesday and we are half way through the week
already.
I hope you all had a good day yesterday. 
I know the weather has been really awful for some, at least
the sun shone between the heavy showers here in Kent.
THANK YOU again for all your wonderful comments, and 
taking the time to pay my blog a visit.
I very much appreciate every one that is made.
Well you know certain blog friends said that making tags can
become addictive well they were right, because here comes
No: 3 I hope you like it.
I was quite pleased with how this one turned out, but what do
you think.



Now a close up of the roses.


I made this tag with my Cricut Machine and red and cream 
card stock.
I made my roses with the Spellbinders Rose Creations Die
and a metalic  looking paper I bought many moons ago from
C and C.
It does curl lovely where as some papers don't,  I'm not sure 
what makes the difference, but you will know when the paper
you choose doesn't stay curled nicely.
Sometimes it can just be better to cut your losses and try 
another one.
I added some red stones around the edges,  these were bought
from the pound shop.
Then I added some swirls from the Venetian Motif Die and 
also some red foliage from foliage die.
Finished it off with some Glossy Accents to make it look like
rain drops on it.
Thank you again for you visit.
Have a wonderful crafty Wednesday everyone.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

Then I watered down some PVA glue and painted it on my 
card, I then added some pink tissue paper with pink metalic
butterflies on it, I dried this with a heat gun and did the same
thing all over again.
I added some blue mica powder this time and more glue and
dried it again.
I then stamped my image and coloured it in with Promarkers.
I added some glitter glue and some little embellishments from
my stash.
I hope you like my effort.

THANK YOU for all the lovely comments made so far on
my humble creations.
I love to visit your blogs, and look at your lovely creations
too.
We all inspire each other and that's how it should be, one big
happy crafting family.
My card today is one I made for my great granddaughter's 
first Birthday.
She loves the Octonauts so I came up with this idea.
I hope you like it.
Just a word of caution you can not sell anything with this 
type of thing on it, because of copyright, but you can do
this type of thing if you are just giving it to your family.


This card was made out an A3 pieces of card made into a A4
card.
Matted and layered with pink, holographic, and turquoise card
I downloaded a picture off the internet.
I added a Happy Birthday and her name and age with my
Cricut Machine.
I then made it look as if it was underwater with glitter glue
and glossy accents for the water droplets.

Now I would like to show you a beautiful Begonia that
I had in my garden this year.
I grew this form a tuba.


I think it is a wonderful flower so I thought you too might like 
to see it.

PINK PARISIAN BORDER CARD

Hi and good morning to all my talented followers and visitors.
I hope you had a really fab day yesterday. 
I would like to welcome my new follower Dr Sonia from
Bangalore, India.
If you look at my blog comments for yesterday you will 
find her blog address. Try and pay her a visit as she has some
amazing tutorials on there.
She is very keen to recycle lots of our every day items, that
I think is wonderful idea. Less waste in our bins has got to 
be a really good thing.
THANK YOU sooooooo much for all your wonderful
comments on my tag No2 yesterday.
I really do appreciate every one, that is made.

My card for today is one inspired by Sue Wilson.
I'm not sure when she made a similar one but the border
idea was on one of her cards.


The ingredients for this.
An A5 card made for A4 card stock in Centura Snow White
pearl card.
Matted with pink pearlised card stock.
I then cut 4 Spellbinders Parisian Borders and layered them.
I cut out a Parisian Motif with center part cut out for the 
sentiment.
I added a very large bow and recycled a few of the cut outs,
and last of all I added some Cosmic Pearly PVA glue dots.
A quick and simple card to make but very effective all the 
same.
What do you think.
Thank you again for visiting my blog each day.

TAG NO 2

Hi and good morning to all my talented blog friends and visitors. 
I hope you all had a wonderful day yesterday, and you managed
to fit in some crafting.
THANK YOU sooooooo much for all your lovely comments.
I really do appreciate everyone of them.
A small message for Patricia Howarth did you get my email 
about the boxes, if you didn't, send me an email and I will 
resend it.
My fellow blog buddy Carole Z left a comment yesterday
saying that tags can get addictive. Well she was right.
Because today we have No 2.
I hope you like it.


I made the tag on my Cricut Machine again this time using
the shadow button to create the layer.
I embossed the cream card layer with a Special Touch Mask
although you can't see much of it as I have covered most of it.
I then wrapped some lovely gold ribbon from my stash round
the bottom, I also used the same ribbon through the top of the
tag.
I cut a Spellbinders Venetian Motifs Die in black card.
I used kitchen baking parchment to stop the card sticking
in the die.
When this came out of the die it looked so pretty I decided to 
use it on top.
I used some of the Venetian swirls too.
I added a rose I had made quite a while ago out of a very
old book, with the Rose Creations Die.
I sprayed the rose with Crafterscompanion gold glitter spray.
Well that's it for today I hope you like my No 2 tag.
Thank you again for visiting and commenting on my blog.
Your opinions mean the world to me.
Have a wonderful crafty day everyone.

Florida on holiday for her 40th.
So I had to make them both small cards to take with them,

images.
I added another mat of Turquoise Pearl Card Embossed
with the Special Touch Mask called Ivy.
I then added some Roses made from the Spellbinders Rose
Creations Die.
I also added some satin ribbon pleated along the bottom.
I finished it off with bow and some pearly swirls, also
flat backed pearls from my stash.

what did turn out.
Here it is.

distress ink using the Venetian Mask as a template for the 
pattern.

peeled paint distress ink.

              Teddy Bear and Good Friends. 
              by Jon Wimer.
           A Teddy Bear is a furry friend 
           whose love and support never end
           it keeps your secrets, and never lies
           Friendly, Fuzzy, Cosy, Wise.
         
           Tell it your secrets 
           It will keep them well
           you don't have to worry,
           it won't ever tell.

           Whenever you need one
            it will always be there
            the same old Teddy Bear
            with the same old stare
            Ready to listen. Ready to care.

Now to my card today.


The ingredients for this is.
An 8x8 card blank. 
Matted with cream card.
I then used  a pattered piece of card from my stash.
I made the cream lace pattern with Spellbinders Parisian
Accents, and interlocked them together and glued them.
I cut two accents and put them either side of my ribbon.
Made a bow put another accent and button in the middle.
I finished it all off with some flat backed pearls from my
stash, and a topper of poppies.
I hope you like my design, I think it looks Asian.
What do you think.
I hope you all have a wonderful crafty day.
Thank you again for stopping by.

WEDDING CAKE BOX

Hello and good morning to all my craft loving friends and 
visitors.
Well it's Tuesday I hope everyone had a fab Monday and
you all had lovely weather.
I know it was raining in South Wales when telephoned my 
Dad yesterday morning.
THANK YOU for visiting my blog and leaving such lovely
comments.
I really do appreciate every one.
I don't know if I have mentioned that I help run a Tuesday
Afternoon Ladies Club.
Nearly all my ladies that attend are widows, and they love
to just get out of their houses for a cuppa and a chat.
Today we thought we would have a Teddy Bears Picnic.
We are all taking a picnic and our favourite Teddy.
We all have to name our Teddy if it doesn't have one and 
then we will do a little guessing game to see who owns 
which Teddy with that particular name.
We are also having a pass the parcel game which has questions
in it about famous Teddy Bears.
There is a little bar of chocolate with each question and the 
final layer will have a lovely Teddy Bear for the winner.
So I was thinking, I know some might say that's bad for you. lol.
Have you got a Teddy Bear you love and whats it's name.
I would be delighted to read about yours.
Mine is called curly because he has curly fur instead of 
straight fur.
Right I have waffled on enough, today I thought I would show
you what I have been working on this weekend.

 and here is a close up of the inside.
Those of you that know my work from Lindyloos blog know
I made one of these very similar for my granddaughters 
wedding in July.
This one is slightly different.
Any one who wants to look at the first one can go to
Robyn's Fetish  Challenge on my archive
if they want to compare them.
The ingredients for this is.
3D crafting Keepsake kit.
I have added some lovely lace that looks like icing to the 
cake in the box and some flower sequins from my stash.
also some pearly hearts too.
I hope you like it.
Thank you again for visiting and leaving your comments.
Have a wonderful crafty day everyone.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

I was on a fellow blog site and saw this challenge, and as I
thought that this is a very worthy cause, I am posting this.

An 8x8 card made out of A4 card.
I embossed the pink card with That Special Touch Mask 
A4 size sorry I don't know the name of it.
I made my my Breast Cancer Ribbon out of some pink
paper from my stash, and glued some little flower braiding 
to it. Then I added some flower sequins with a pearl in the
middle.
Put it together with a stone brad.
I cut 4 Spellbinder Fancy Posts for the corners, then I added
some more sequins, some feathers, and last of all tag made 
out of Spellbinders Lacy Circles.
I hope you can all join in this challenge, because it's such a 
worthy cause and needs highlighting.

50th BIRTHDAY CARD

Hello and good morning to all my followers and visitors.
It's Friday already and the weekends nearly here.
I hope everyone has had a fab week and the weather has been
kind to all of you.
THANK YOU for dropping by and leaving such wonderful
comments.
I very much appreciate each and every one.
Did you all spot the differences yesterday.
Well there was a slight mistake, I posted the wrong picture for 
the first picture, and I didn't notice till I had finished my post,
that evening and I was too tired by then to rectify it. So Sorry.
What happened was I took the first photo to send to the client
before finishing the card, and got them mixed up.
So there were 3 differences really.
1. The double scolloped oval.
2  The single scolloped oval.
3. The embossed background on the ovals, were different.
I hope you liked my little game. Just thought it would interest
you all.
Now to my card for today, no games this time, honest.
This one I made for my daughter's friends Birthday.


Ingredients for this.
An 8x8 scolloped card blank.
Matted with silver mirri and then pink pearlised  card from 
my card stock.
I cut out an aperture of Spellbinders Parisian Motifs before
applying it to my mirrir.
I then put the motif back in the aperture. I cut out a 50 on my
Cricut Machine.
I added some Parisain corners and the accents down one side.
Some pearly swirls and I stamped the little flowers with
Creative Expression stamps called Ivy which has some lovely
what I would call a Christmas rose stamps included.
I coloured them in with mica powder and spritzed them with 
a spray varnish to stop the mica powder coming off.
Finished the card with a bow and a pearly button.
Oh and I nearly forgot I punched flower holes in the scolloped
parts of the card.
The butterflies are from the Memory Box Moonlight Butterfly
die.
Well that's all for today folks, I hope you liked my creation
today.
Thank you again for taking the time to leave you comments.
Have a wonderful crafty day everyone.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

SPOT THE DIFFERENCES

Hi and welcome to all my wonderful and talented blog
friends and visitors.
Please leave a comment to show you have visited.
I am sooooooo thrilled with your recent comments.
THANK YOU sooooooo much for taking the time to make
them.
I thought today I would set you a little task.
I was asked by my local Cricket Ground to donate a prize
for an auction of promises.
You see their changing rooms had got flooded and they
needed to buy new equipment to replace the flood damaged items.
So I said I would donate 2 of my hand made cards.
Made especially for the person who won the bid.
These cards are the ones I made.
The lady in question wanted 2 Mothers Day cards the same,
but this is where you come in.
They are both nearly the same but slightly different.
Can you spot the differences ?


Now to the inside.


Now to the box.


The ingredients for this is.
A5 card stock.
Cupcakecrafting CD Floral Delights by Andrew Hull.
For the papers and decoupage.
Spellbinders Grand Scolloped Oval Die.
Creative Expressions self adhesive pearl swirls.
The ribbon I dyed with tattered rose distress ink.
I used my favourite Parisian corners, and a button from
my stash.
Well thats all for today folks.
I hope you like my little efforts.
Thank you again for dropping by and visiting me.
Your comments make it all worth while.
Have a wonderful crafty Thursday everyone.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny.
