90th BIRTHDAY CARD AND BOX

Hi and welcome to my part of blog land, all my
craft loving friends, and visitors.
Well it's the weekend and I do hope the weather
where ever you may live is being kind to you.

I was contacted recently by a lady who wanted
 me to make a 90th Birthday Card for her.
I said I would make her a card and box, and in payment for the card she could give a donation 
to her favourite charity.
Her choice of charity was the Clic Sargent
Charity for people who suffer from Leukemia.
She has kindly donated £25.00 to that charity.
Part was payment for the card, and part was a
donation from herself.
So here is the card, and box.




This is a 8"x8" size card and box to fit.
I used a combination of my Cricut, ScanNcut,
and dies for this card and box.
The flowers, and the 90th was cut out on the 
Cricut, and the today, corner,and borders
were cut on the ScanNcut.
The rest was cut out with dies.

Thank you so much for you visit, and wonderful
comments you make.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

BABY CARD AND BAG

Hi and welcome to my blog all my very talented 
friends, and visitors.
Thank you so much for all the wonderful comments, and welcome back wishes.
I very much appreciate all of them.

I'm back today with a Baby Card and Bag my
granddaughter asked me to make for a friend.
This Baby was born on New Years Day, and was
rushed into St Thomas's Hospital for heart surgery.
Surgery was very successful, and she was home in
about 4 or 5 days after the op.
Just amazing what the surgeons can do now.




This a 8"x8" size card and bag to fit.
The papers and the image are from the Joanna
Sheen Baby Love CD.
I cut out the teddy border on my ScanNcut.
The pram on the bag is a Tattered Lace Die.
The bag is made from 2 sheets of A3 PMD card.

I used some snippets left over from the card on
the bag decoration, so I'm off to the snippets
playground to join in the fun.

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

RUDOLF CHALLENGE JAN 2015

Hi and welcome to my blog all my craft loving
friends, and visitors.
Sorry I have been missing again.
My DH is much better now and moving around quite well, at last.
Thank you for all your well wishes for him, and 
I hope to be getting round to visiting all of you 
today if time allows.
 
I have just remembered the Rudolf Challenge,
so here is my entry for this month. 



This is a 6"x6" size card.
I covered my card with the First Edition Gilded
Winter paper pad.
I added and old Kanban Sentiment Topper to the
front of the card, and then I cut out some of the
design paper and decoupaged it.

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

GRANDDAUGHTERS BIRTHDAY CARD

Hi and welcome to my blog all my craft loving
friends, and visitors.
Sorry I have been missing again, but my DH is
suffering with a slipped disc very low in his spine,
and can't sit up or walk about without being in
extreme pain, so he has been in bed lying on his
left side for a week.
We thought it was his hip, but it turns out to be a
slipped disc they think.
Pain killing meds don't seem to be working either.
So you may not see a lot of me over the next few 
weeks, although I am managing to craft a little,
and have lots of cards to show, as I have a few
Birthdays in January.
It's my youngest Granddaughters Birthday today,
and here is the card I made her, she is 7 today,and
loves the Rainbow Ponies.




This is a 8"x8" size card.
I embossed the purple card with a A4 Special
Touch Mask.
I cut out the doily on my ScanNcut.
I added lots of snippets of coloured card I had 
used on other cards, so I'm off to join in the 
playground with this.

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

OLDIE FOR FRIDAY

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

Thank you for all your good wishes for my DH.

Well it's Friday and time to join Erika with a 
Oldie for Friday.  HERE 
Here is mine for this week, now I chose this 
without looking at Erika's, for this week, and we
are both showing cards with Tartan on them.





This is a 8"x8" size card, one of the last I made
my Dad before he passed away.
The reason I used Tartan is that my great 
grandfather was born in Scotland, and I thought
my Dad would be pleased to have Tartan on the
card.

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

BUTTERFLY CHALLENGE CARD

Hi and welcome to my part of blog land, all my 
craft loving friends, and visitors.
I am sorry I have been missing again, but my DH
is having a lot of pain in his left hip, and as he is
usually my head cook and bottle washer, so I'm 
having to do all the cooking and washing up jobs 
again. 
You don't realize how much more time that gives
you to craft and blog, until it's gone.
I have also had to go for my 3 yearly mammogram
again, and unluckily I had the same butcher of
a woman I had last time.
There are usually 2 woman in the mobile unit,
and I just had to have the one that treats you like
a piece of meat again this time.
Well enough of my moaning, but I just had to 
mention the woman in the breast screening unit,
as she makes me so mad.
Now on to my Butterfly Challenge card.



This is a five and half inch square card.
The paper was printed off a CD I bought for just
a £1 at Creative Crafting World called Tumble
Tizzy Pastimes Collection.
The image is a Hunkydory one called Fairy
Sweethearts.
I used a Sue Wilson Die, cut up, and put around
the edge of the heart for the decorative edge.
The bottom lace wahsi sort of tape my sister
sent me as a present, and I cut out the thank you
on the scanNcut.

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

LARGE SNOWFLAKE CARD

Hi and welcome to my blog all my craft loving
friends, and visitors.
Well we are moving into January quite nicely now.

Thank you for all your good wishes and comments.
I very much appreciate every one.

Sorry I have another Christmas card to show you,
as I have made a few while not blogging.
I live in a bungalow in a sheltered housing complex, and there is a block of flats on this 
complex which houses about 36 retired residents.
So this is the card I made for everyone that lives there.




This is a 8"x8" size card.
The papers are Hobbycraft again, and I cut out
the large snowflake with my scanNcut.
I must admit the scanNcut does make short work
of lots of projects, and this card was made very
quickly in less than an hour.
I used some snippets of red card for the background of the Merry Christmas and the 
inside stars, so I'm off to join in the antics of the
playground after a absence to a few weeks.
As this paper was a never before used one, I am 
joining Darnell in her Nimbus Challenge too.

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

Hi and welcome to my blog all my very lovely friends, and visitors.
I am so sorry I have been missing for nearly a 
month, but I had family staying, and my DH and
I have not been well.
Hubster is still a bit poorly, and still has a nagging
cough which won't allow him to sleep.
We had a nice quite Christmas, and I did manage
to make a few Christmas cards in that I needed
for certain people. 
So here is one of them.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
The paper is from Hobbycraft, and I cut the 
swirly center piece with the ScanNcut.
The paper is a new one I have never used before
so I can join Darnell and her Nimbus challenge.

Thank you for all your good wishes, and some
of you said you missed me so that was music
to my ears, to know I was missed. 
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.
