TEAL CHRISTMAS CARD

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends,
and  visitors.
I do hope you have all had a wonderful weekend,
and the weather has been nice for you.

Thought I would have a play with some of my
NBUS items bought a while ago, and not been 
used yet.
I wanted to make a Christmas card, and thought
Teal would look nice.
So here is what I came up with, and I hope you
like it.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
My NBUS items are the Embossing Folder, the
Ivy Die.
The Christmas Roses, and leaves are stamped
onto a snippet of card with Menmento London
Fog Ink, and I sprayed them with Crafters 
Companion Spray and Sparkle Pearl Diamond.
The ivy was also cut out of snippets too.
So I can join my playmates in the snippets
 playground with this.

Thank you for your visit and time.
I very much appreciate it.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

and her fiance will supporting England, and may 
the best team win.

RUDOLF CHALLENGE SEPTEMBER 2015

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends,
and visitors.
Sorry I have been missing again, but I have been
baking for the Macmillan coffee morning which
was this morning.
We raised over one hundred pounds so all my 
efforts was well worth it.
Phew was I exhausted though after it all.
I made a Lemon Drizzle, Victoria Sandwich, 
and 36 cupcakes that were decorated as well.
I had to keep sitting down in between, as standing
for long periods doesn't help with my back probs.

Now today starts the Rudolf Challenge for 
September, and here is my entry.



This is a 6"x6" size Dovecraft Silver card.
I used the Crafters Companion embossing
folder from the Nordic Collection.
The papers are from the Crafters Companion
Nordic CD.
To make the Christmas Tree you just cut 4 
different size squares.
I did 4", 4"and a half , 5", and 5" and a half.
Then you fold them like tea bag folding, and 
assemble, and glue.
I have done this before, but I made a mistake
with this one, but I thought it still looked okay.

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

I would like to enter this into the following

LOVE MY DOG

Hi and welcome to my all my very talented
friends, and visitors.
Thank you for your visit, and the wonderful
comments you make.
I very much appreciate them all, as I know time
is precious to all of us.

Well I don't think it's the internet that has been 
playing up, but my old computer, as it's getting 
on now just like me, and as it's a iMac so I need
 a windfall to buy a new one as I love my wonderful big screen as it helps with my eyes.
Well enough of my woes on to today's card.



This is a 6"x6" size card, which I cut into this
shape with the Spellbinders Labels 1 Die.
The image is a LOTV one, and coloured in with
Chameleon pens.
Still trying to get used to them.
Papers printed from the Tumble Ted CD.
Not put any sentiment on it as it's not for anyone
in particular.

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

BUTTERFLY CHALLNGE 38 Y IS YARN

Hi and welcome to all my craft loving friends,
and visitors.
I am still having a few probs with my internet,
 and it's driving me mad when I try and comment.
This seems to be an intermittent fault so lets hope
it gets sorted soon.
Anyway I do hope you are all enjoying your 
weekend, and the weather is being kind to you.

Today I have a card I made especially for the 
Butterfly Challenge.
The letter involved with this challenge is Y for
Yarn so here is my entry.

  

This is a 6"x6" easel card.
The shaped card was one I bought many moons
ago from Kanban.
I glued 2 together to make it sturdy for an easel.
I then covered it with paper.
I used a snippet of card, and silver yarn to 
create the design, so I'm off to the snippets playground to join my playground pals  as well.
Butterflies were bought for me by my sister.

Thank you for your visit, and the wonderful
comments you make.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

NBUS BUTTERFLY AND SNIPPETS CARD

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends,
and visitors.
I am sorry I have been missing for a few days,
but I had a big order for cards for family members,
and I am not sleeping too well at the moment, so 
after a few hours crafting I get tuckered out, and 
the days seem to be getting shorter or is it just me
getting older.

Well I managed in between making the family 
cards to make this one that fits 3 challenges so
I do hope you like my idea, I tried to make it 
look like a picture on a living room wall. 
Not sure if I succeeded though.



This is a 6"x6" size card.
The NBUS items used are the papers, and the 
stamps to create the snowy scene.
The arch picture frame is to comply with the
Butterfly Challenge.
Snippets used on this are the card I stamped on,
the gold card for the center of the papers, and the
bronze, and cream card for the arches. 
I used some acetate on the picture frame too
 which doesn't show up on the photo.

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

BROTHER IN LAWS BIRTHDAY CARD

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends,
and visitors.
Thank you so much for your visit.
I very much appreciate your time spent leaving
me such wonderful comments.

Well tomorrow is my sister's husbands Birthday,
and I was trying to think of what to put on his 
card this year, and suddenly thought he lives in South Wales, and is a big fan of anything Welsh 
so here is what I came up with.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
The backing paper I made from  the Welsh flag
on my 3D 2 CD.
I cut out his name in 2 colours and off set them
slightly.

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