BABY SHOWER CARD,BAG AND NAPPY CAKE

Hi and welcome to my blog all my very talented friends, and visitors that may just find my blog.

Well it's Saturday again already, and tomorrow I'm off to my Granddaughter's Baby Shower.
So here is the Card, Bag, and Nappy Cake I made her.
The Nappy Cake is an idea I borrowed from Hazel's blog which you will find HERE.
She make some amazing Baskets, Cards, Beer,
and Nappy Cakes.
So pay her a visit if you don't already do so, you 
will be in for treat.

So here is my card, and effort at the Nappy Cake.





Well I should have warned you this is picture 
heavy.
My Granddaughter never wants  to know 
what sex the baby is before it's born, so hence
the Lemon Card, and white Nappy Cake, as I 
couldn't find anything to go in, and on the top of 
the Nappy Cake in Lemon.
The card is a 8"x8" size.
I used a combination of Sue Wilson, and Tattered 
Lace dies.
The inside baby items, and the decoration on the 
bag are all cut out on my ScanNcut.

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

RUBY WEDDING ANNIVERSARY CARD AND BAG

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

Well it's Sunday again already, and a very frosty 
start to the day here in my part of Kent, but the 
Sun has got his hat on so it looks like it may warm up a bit later.

I mentioned earlier this week I had a few rush 
orders for cards this week.
Well my daughter rang me at 4pm Wednesday
afternoon and asked could I make a Ruby Anniversary card for Mum and Dad, for one of
her colleagues as she couldn't find one in the shops, and she wanted it by Thursday evening to 
take into work on Friday.
Mum to the rescue with this one I made.







This is a 8"x8" size card, and bag to fit.
The bag is made out of 2 pieces of A3 card.
I was running out of red card stock so I die cut
my red die pieces out of my matt and layering 
card, and also used some snippets out of my 
box to finish it off.

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

Hi and welcome to my part of blog land all my
craft loving friends, and visitors.
Thank you so much for your visit, and the wonderful comments you make.
Your visit and comments make posting so worthwhile, and I love to get your feed back on
what I create.

Been looking after my Grandson, and Granddaughter today as it's half term week.
Gran was asked to do some baking with them,
so my 7 year old Granddaughter made a chocolate
frosted cake, and her brother Dylan who is nearly
11years old made a Lemon Drizzle his fave cake.
Sorry I forgot to take photos, silly me, but they 
both turned out great.

Well on to my card.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
Sorry I can't remember the name of the embossing folder I used, as I can't find the packaging.
I think it was a Craftwell one though.
I cut holes around my debossed side, and threaded ribbon through it.
The butterfly is a Spellbinders one.
I added some Cosmic Shimmer White Glue Dots
around the edge, and in the middle too.

Thank you again for your visit, and time.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

ANNIVERSARY CARD IN PINK AND KRAFT CARD

Hi and welcome to my blog all my very talented
friends, and visitors.
Thank you for all your get well wishes for my
Grandson, who is now much better.

We had singing practice at my place yesterday,
and we are out performing tomorrow afternoon.
We sent another yearly cheque for £500 to
The Dame Vera Lynn charity for children with 
Cerebral Palsy recently.
A good £400 pounds down on last years donation,
as we haven't had as many bookings, last year.
Lets hope this year is a little better, but then 
money is tight in most places now.

Yesterday was my eldest sister's Wedding Anniversary, and they have been married for
55 years now, so this is the card I made them.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
I used the Sue Wilson Embossing Folder Heart
Lattice.
The lovely heart and the doves was cut out on
my ScanNcut.
The corners were also cut on the ScanNcut so
this made this card a very quick one to make.

Thank you so much for your visit, time, and the
wonderful comments you make.
I very much appreciate everyone you make.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

SON'S BICYCLE BIRTHDAY CARD

Hi and welcome to my part of blog land, all my
very talented friends, and visitors.
Well it's the weekend again, and I do hope the
weather is being kind to you all.

I had to rush off to my Son's yesterday as my 
grandson wasn't well and they needed me to look
after him while they were in work.
They normally take time off work to look after
their children, but as they had been off work 
earlier that week not well themselves, so gran came to the rescue.

Now it was my other Son's Birthday on the 3rd
of this month, and as he is a keen bicycle fan,
and does at least 50 miles every Sunday morning
because he is an office executive, and loves to 
cycle every weekend after being in a office most
of the week or flying off to some other country on
business.
So here is the card I thought up for him.




This is a 8"x8" size card.
The image is Hunkydory from their decoupage
book.
The backing paper was made out of a bicycle
image on my  Decoupage 2 CD.
The Son was cut out with my X Cut Dies, and
I  decided to do some doodling drawing on them.

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

BUTTERFLY CHALLENGE CARD

Hi and welcome to all my craft loving friends,
and visitors.
I would like to welcome my newest follower,
and thank you so much for choosing to follow
me, and I do hope to see you visit as often as
you can manage it.

I can't believe it's Thursday already just where 
has most of this week gone.
I seemed to have slowed to a snails pace lately.

Well it's time to post a card for this fortnights 
Butterfly Challenge, and I was asked by my 
daughter to make her a 7 year anniversary card,
so I thought I would combine the both.
The challenge wants to see Valentines, and a 
butterfly or butterflies on your card.
So here is my entry.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
I covered my white card with red card, as I 
didn't have the right size red card.
Then I cut out the trellis design on my ScaNcut.
This design I downloaded from John Bloodworth's blog the gentlemen crafter, so thank you so much
John for creating this design.
I cut out the 7 on my Cricut machine, and added 
some red stones, and some flocked hearts.

Thank you for your visit and time.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

SUGAR SKULL BIRTHDAY CARD

Hi and welcome to my blog everyone that visits 
me.
I do hope you all had a great weekend.
Thank you for all your really great comments.
I very much appreciate your time spent visiting
me, and all the wonderful encouraging comments
I get from you.
I know there are some very talented people out
there so your visit is very important to me.

It was my Grandson's 16th Birthday on Saturday,
so after a long hard decision I decided to make 
this style card for him, as I had bought him
clothes with skulls on for Christmas.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
I made the backing paper out of the image, and
my Decoupage 2 CD.
The Grandson and Happy Birthday were cut
out on my ScanNcut.
I used the piece that usually goes in your snippets
box for my Grandson sentiment, and put Cosmic
Shimmer Glue in the recess, and then added some
Cosmic Shimmer Midnight Snow Glitter.
I also used lots of Snippets of card to back my
image, and sentiments, so I'm off to the Snippets
playground to join in the fun, and games.

Thank you kindly for your visit and time.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
