C IS FOR CORNERS AT THE BUTTERFLY CHALLENGE

Hi and welcome to my part of blog land, all my
very talented followers, and visitors.
Thank you so much for you visit.

I have family arriving tomorrow for Easter so
if I'm not about much please excuse me, but I 
will try and visit when I can.

Well it's time for my first ever Easter card, and I 
can't believe I have never made one before.
So I thought I would combine the Butterfly
Challenge as well.



This is a 6"x6" size card.
The paper used is from the Robert Addams CD
Sugar and Spice.
The sentiment, and the bunny were free stamps
with a magazine a few years ago.
Coloured with my first attempt of Chameleon
markers, which my DH kindly bought me 
recently.
I have put some sequin flowers in the corners,
as my corners.

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

BABY BOY CARD AND BAG

Hi and welcome to my part of blog land all my
talented friends, and visitors.
Did you remember your clocks ?
We have so many that it takes my DH ages to adjust the times as he loves to mend old clocks,
as a hobby, so you can imagine, how many there 
are dotted around my house.
He is currently renovating a lovely very old 
American shelve clock.

Not nice weather in my part of Kent today, so I 
do hope it's better wherever you may live.

Here is my card, and bag I made for my Granddaughter's new baby boy.

 
 




The card is a 8"x8" size as usual, and a bag
made to match, out of A3 PMD card stock.
The papers on the card are from Joanna Sheen
Baby Love CD which you can no longer buy.
I also printed out New Baby Arrival cards from
the same CD, which I added to the inside, and on the front of the card.
I put the photo of Ewan behind a frame I bought
from C&C many moons ago in a big set of 
chipboard card embellishments.

Thank you for your visit, and the wonderful
comments you make.
I very much appreciate your precious time as I 
know time is precious to all of us, especially 
those of you that still work, and blog.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

RUDOLF CHALLENGE MARCH 2015 AND PICTURE OF MY NEW GREAT GRANDSON

Hi and welcome to my part of blog land, all my
very talented friends, and visitors.
Thank you so much for your visit and comments.
I appreciate your time spent visiting, and commenting.

Today is the start of the Rudolf Challenge over
at Scrappymo's blog, this challenge runs from the
25th of the month to end of the month.
So try and join in as it gets some of your Christmas cards made early.
Here is mine for this month, and it was a bit hurried as I have a new Great Grandchild born
yesterday, and it's my first Great Grandson.



This is a 6"x6" size card.
Papers printed of a Robert Addams CD
The robin image I recycled from a box of 
Yankee tea light candles, as I thought it was so
pretty.
I used Cosmic Shimmer Iced Snow Glitter on it.
Merry Christmas, and snowflakes cut on my
ScanNcut machine.



This is my new Great Grandson Ewan born 
yesterday weighing 8lbs 10oz.
Isn't he just gorgeous, and this photo was taken 
by his Mum with her phone just after he was born.
A little miracle as she nearly lost him 12 weeks 
into her pregnancy.
Now you all no what I will be making today don't
you.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

SUGAR SKULLS BIRTHDAY CARD NO 2

Hi and welcome to all my friends, and visitors.
I do hope you all a wonderful weekend, and the 
weather was good to you all.

Thank you for your visit and time, I very much
appreciate it.

Today I have a 2nd Sugar Skulls Birthday card 
to show you.
This is for my daughter's fiancee, and I know he
doesn't look at my blog, and works in London all
week so I can safely show it.




I know this isn't to every ones style, but I 
happen to know he like the art work on Sugar Skulls.
This card is a 8"x8" size.
The backing paper I made with my Decoupage
2 CD out of the image.
I used some Gunmetal Stickles around the skull
to highlight it, and Platinum Stickles to the
corners.
The pattern on the corners was cut out on my 
ScanNcut, and glued on to Snippets of card, as
I thought they went with the image.

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

BUTTERFLY CHALLENGE & NBUS CHALLENGE CARD

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends,
and visitors.
Well it's the weekend yet again, and I can hear you all cheering, and saying I hope the weather is good to us.

Thank you so much for your visit I really do appreciate your time.

Today I have a card I made for the Butterfly Challenge, and it also conforms with the Nbus
Challenge that starts today on Darnell's blog.




This is a 6"x6" size card.
The paper used is Back To Basics by Dovecraft
Monochrome.
I have only used one die cut, in the inside of my 
card, all the rest are hand cut with scissors.
Now the Nbus items used are the Papers,
Ribbon, and the Corner Rhinestones. 
I hope you like my design, I came up with.
The inside view looks as if the corner of the 
front is overlapping the card, but it isn't, and I 
should have photographed it again, but I was 
too lazy to pull out my photographing box again.
So I hope you will excuse the look.

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

ANNIVERSARY CARD

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.
I am so glad you like my efforts of creating.

I seem to have slowed to snails pace this year as
it takes me so long to do things.
I get up in the morning and before long it's night
time again, and I think hang on what happened to
the day.
I need a 48 hour day me thinks.
I am also very behind with my card making.
For example today is my Son and his Wife's 
15th Wedding Anniversary, and I only made this
card yesterday afternoon.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
I used the Sue Wilson Heart Lattice embossing 
folder.
The heart dies are Tonic.
The corner die is Spellbinders.
The organza roses are from the works.
I stamped my sentiment with DI Worn Lipstick.
I used some heart snippets for the inside so I 
am off to the Snippets Playground with this.

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

GRANDSON'S 18TH BIRTHDAY CARD

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

May I welcome my newest follower, and thank 
you soooooo! much for choosing to follow me.
I do hope you visit me as often as your time can spare.

It is my Grandson's 18th Birthday today so here 
is the card I made him.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
The papers used are from the DCWV 12x12
Butterfly Garden Pad.
I don't know what happened to the top right 
hand corner in the picture as it looks warped, 
but isn't on the card.
Maybe it was due to the pearlised card, and the
light.
The pattern under the gold buttons was cut on 
my ScanNcut, and also the Happy Birthday.
The 18 was cut out on my Cricut machine.

Thank you for your visit and the wonderful
comments you make.
I very much appreciate your visit, and your
precious time spent visiting me.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

TUMBLE TED GOLF BIRTHDAY CARD

Hi and welcome to my blog all my craft loving 
friends, and visitors, who may just visit.

Thank you so much for your visit, and the wonderful comments you make.
I really do appreciate your visit, and precious time.

Well I have been missing again, as it was my 
Birthday on Monday, and I had a very lovely day,
and I went out for lunch too.
I was 66 so my DH kept saying all day clickety 
click, and he doesn't even play bingo. lol.

Now the weather has turned to spring like some
days I am trying to get my garden in shape, as it
was neglected last year due to my slipped disc.
I have to do a little , and then have a rest, as I 
can't bend for long, and I don't want a repeat of
last years trouble.
So I am sorry if I don't post so often, but I have
plenty of cards made to show as I have quite a
few family Birthdays in March.
Talking about which this one I made for my
eldest sister's husband, who loves all sports.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
The papers and the image were printed from
the Tumble Ted Pastimes CD which I bought 
for a bargain of £1, from Creative Crafting World.
Hope you like my design I came up with.
Not happy with the golf ball which I used glossy
accents on.
I used some snippets of card I had already printed
on one side, and didn't like the result, so I printed 
on the back so hopefully this qualifies me to join
in the playground this week.

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

May I welcome my new follower, and thank you
sooooooo! much for choosing to follow me.
I do hope you visit as often as you are able to.

Hexagon.

Then I glued my Butterfly paper to it.
The paper comes from DCWV Butterfly Garden
Paper Stack 12x12.
I cut out some smaller hexagons and layered them.
Then I added a leafy design to the top, that I had
coloured with a Promarker, and stickled glued it.
Then I went all around the edges of the card with
my Promarker to give it an edge.
Finally I added some lovely peach vellum butterflies.

Thank you for your visit, time, and wonderful
comments you make.

Hi and welcome to my part of blog land, all my 
friends, and visitors that may drop in.
Thank you so much for your visit, time, and wonderful comments you make.
I very much appreciate them all.

It was my Grandson's 11th Birthday on Wednesday, and he is a goalie for his local team,
and he also supports Arsenal, I bought him
a Arsenal Away Jersey for his present.
SoI thought I would go with this theme for his card.

made me.
This time it was my eldest sister who made this one.



I am very lucky to have such wonderful and talented sisters, who make me superb jewellery.

The card is a 8"x8" size.
The backing paper was made with my quite old
CD called Decoupage 2.
I used some snippets of card to die cut and stamp 
the sentiment.
So I'm off to the snippets playground a bit late 
this week.

Thank you again for your visit, and time.

OLDIE FOR FRIDAY

Hi and welcome to my blog, all my very talented
friends, and visitors that may pop in.
Sorry I have been missing this week but it's been a very hectic week for me, with lots to do and not 
a lot of time to do it.
Plus I was not feeling to well either which slowed
me down even more than usual.

So it's Friday again and time to share your older
creations with ERIKA HERE
There is so much fun in bringing back your 
Older creations, and some of your newer followers
may not have seen these.
So come on have a go I know it's just  for fun, and
no prizes, but a very good idea.
So here is mine for this week.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
The papers are from the Dessert Blooms Pad.
The digi image is a Mo Manning one, and 
coloured with Promarkers, and Flexmarkers.
I do miss being able to colour in images, but my 
eyes are not good enough to see the lines 
properly now.
Still waiting for my eye op, so maybe after I can
resume colouring in.

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

WEDDING CARD, BOX AND BAG.

Hi and welcome to my blog all my craft loving
friends, and visitors that may visit me.
Thank you for you visit, and the wonderful comments you make.
I very much appreciate every one that you make.

My creation today was inspired by a card Sue
Wilson showed on her blog, when she launched 
her new spring sets of dies.
My daughter and her fiancee were going to a wedding of and child hood friend of her fiancee's.
So this is what I created for it.
Sorry picture heavy again.





The card is a 8"x8" size, and box made to fit.
I went with Cream and Beige as the invite was 
in that colour.
Sorry about the picture of the inside of the card,
it came out a bit yellow, and I had great trouble
trying to photograph it, for some reason.
The Vintage Roses were from the works, and I
made the hat pin specially for the card.
The bell border was cut out on my ScanNcut
machine.
I do hope you like my take on Sue's wonderful
card.

Thank you again for you time.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
