SNIPPETS CHALLENGE CARD

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends,
and visitors.
I am sorry in my last post I forgot to welcome my
newest followers.
THANK YOU for choosing to follow me, and I do hope you can pop back, and see what I have 
created as often as you can make it.
A big, and wonderful THANK YOU to all my
friends, that continually visit and leave me such
wonderful comments.
I truly appreciate your time spent visiting me, and
the wonderful inspiring comments you make.

Today I have my snippets challenge card, and I 
decided to try my hand at colouring again as I
have missed it so much.
Those of you who maybe be my newest friends
will not realize I have an eye condition, that 
stops me from seeing fine detail, and I see 
wiggly lines not straight with this condition.
I was due to have a op last year, but my blood
pressure was too high, and then the next time I
was called for the op I had a slipped disc in the
top of my spine.
So I still haven't had the op, but am learning to
live with it, and my brain is compensating for 
it too.
 Here is my effort.





This is a 8"x8" size card.
The base coloured card I made out of and old
piece of card I had previously printed on, just 
used the other side, and used DI Peacock
Feathers, and Dusty Concorde to colour it.
The pattern paper, and purple card are left over
snippets from other cards.
The image is a freebie one from the Bestie 
images from Sherri Baldy, and coloured in with
Promarkers.
I coloured my doilies with DI Dust Concorde.
So I'm off to join the girls in the playground, and
Miss Di, and the lovely Parsnip keep an eye out
we don't get too boisterous.

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

BUTTERFLY CHALLENGE CARD L IS FOR LACE.

Hi and welcome to all my craft loving friends,
visitors.
I do hope you are all having a great and fab
weekend.
Although I hear while blogging the weather isn't
too great in some places.
It drizzled yesterday morning, but the sun shone
in the afternoon, and I managed to get my 
washing dry, and then it rained again in the evening.

Well it's time to post my Butterfly Challenge
card, and the letter chosen was L for Lace.
So hear is what I came up with.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
The papers used are Dovecraft Cupcake 8"x8".
I decided to glue one sheet to card, and 
decoupaged some of the teacups, and teapots.
then I added two layers of lace to the bottom, and
topped that with ricrac pink binding from the
works. 
I added a lace bow, and some roses from my 
stash.

Thank you for your time,and comments.
Also thank you so much for your good wishes
for my sister, I feel so much more positive 
about it all now after some of your words of
wisdom.
Lots of crafty love.   JENNY.

RUDOLF CHALLENGE CARD FOR APRIL 2015

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

Sorry I have been missing for a day or so, but
I have had some sad news from my eldest sister,
and didn't feel much like blogging.
You may remember those of you who have known me longer, that she had a brain tumor about 5
years ago and came through that okay except for
lots of meds she has to take.
Well now she has told me she has bowl cancer.
So lets hope the outcome of this op when she has
it turns out as good.
Her hubby had a similar op about 15 years ago,
and has been fine ever since.
I don't know they have had their fare share of
health probs between them, especially my sister.

Today I have my card for the Rudolf Challenge
for April, which starts on the 25th of each 
month and ends on the end of the month.
It's a jolly good way of making your Christmas
cards before the rush at the end of the year.
If you would like to join us, details of the 
challenge at the bottom of my post.




This is a 8"x8" size card.
Not really pleased with the result of this card.
I used the Sue Wilson embossing folder 
Swirling Holly for the background.
The poinsettia is a made from the Sizzix Die
called Susan Garden.
Should have made it with paper not card as I 
am not happy with it, so memo to ones self to
use paper next time.

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

craft loving friends, and visitors.
I do hope you like what I have created, and if you

out.

silk glitter on some double sided sticky paper.
I then added the design I had cut out on my 
ScanNcut.
Flowers cut out on the ScanNcut too.
The butterflies my sister sent me.
Stamped sentiment with Potting Soil Archival
Ink.

MOTHER'S DAY CARD AND BOX.

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

Well while trawling through my archives of my 
blog looking for a Mother's Day card to post for
the Throwback Thursday Challenge, I found this 
Mother's Day card I had never posted, as I made 
it before I started blogging.
Now I was approached by a neighbour, and asked
if I could donate  making a card for a auction of
promises, in aid of her Grandson's Cricket Club,
which had been flooded out and needed new things.
So the lady who bought my promise wanted 2
Mother's Day cards made, and this is what I 
made for her.






This is a A5 size card, and box made to fit.
I used the Cupcake Floral Delights CD for
the papers, and decoupage.
I used Tattered Rose Distress Ink to colour my
American seam binding for the bow on the card,
and also colour some of the card.

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

THROWBACK THURSDAY CHALLNEGE NO 8

Hi and welcome to my blog, all my craft loving
friends, and visitors.

I am very pleased to say I won the last Throwback
Thursday Challenge.

Because I was not blogging last week I missed 
the Throwback Thursday Challenge no 8 which
started last Thursday, but all is not lost as the
challenge runs for a month.
Now Bibiana wants to see Mother's Day creations,
but it's not compulsory, as you may post anything
you have posted before.
As my own Mother passed away sadly 12 years 
ago just after I started making cards, I'm afraid I
haven't a Mother's Day card, so I found this card
that I had posted HERE and it has a picture of my
Mother when she was a young woman on it.
She always loved to decoupage flowers around 
pictures in picture frames, so I thought this 
creation of mine appropriate.





This is a 8"x8" size card.
The papers are from the Heartfelt Creations
Burst of Splendor pad.
I decoupaged the flowers round my Mother's
picture, and in the corner.
I coloured the base cards with Wild Honey, and
Peeled Paint Distress Inks.

Thank you for your visit, and the lovely 
comments you make.
I very much appreciate them all.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the Throwback
Thursday Challenge No 8.

ANNIVERSARY CARD

Hi and welcome to my blog, all my very talented
friends, and visitors.
Thank you so much for your visit, and comments.
It means so much to me that you take the 
time to visit me.

Well we have had some lovely sunshine in my
part of Kent the last few days, and may it continue.
 I do hope you are experiencing the same 
lovely weather wherever you may live.

Today I have a anniversary card for my step Son,
and his Wife, I know she loves the colour purple.





This is a 8"x8" size card.
The papers were printed from the Crafters 
Companion CD called LOVE.
The hearts with the letters were also printed 
from the same CD.
Now I didn't have Lavender Card stock so I used
White Card, and coloured the edges with 
Milled Lavender DI.
I used a Quickie Glue Pen, and some crystal 
glitter to enhance the paper, and the hearts.

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