SON'S BIRTHDAY CARD AND CUPCAKES

Hi and welcome to all my craft loving friends, and visitors.
Thank you for your visit, and time.

Well my family has gone back home now, and I do love their visits, but it is always too short.
They no sooner arrive, and their off again, but we had a good weekend as it was my Granddaughter's engagement party on Saturday, and we had a great time celebrating it.

So today is my Son's Birthday, and after trying to think of what to put on his card I suddenly thought of this.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
The image was a freebie off the internet.
I made the border print out of the image on my 3D Decoupage CD.
I also made him some cupcakes with the same colour van on it, but forgot to photograph them, but here are some I made for my Granddaughter's engagement party.


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

GRANDDAUGHTER'S BIRTHDAY CARD

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
Thank you so much for your visit, and I do very much appreciate your wonderful comments.

Today I have a card I made for my Granddaughter's 17th Birthday.
Now those of you that have known me for a while will remember her brother turned 17 3 years ago and was bought a car for his Birthday lucky young man.
So now it's his sister's turn to turn 17,and she got bought a cream mini.
Good job they only have 2 children otherwise it would cost them the earth.
So here is her card I made her.



This card is a 8"x8" size.
The pink mini image is one I bought from C&C when they first started broadcasting so it's very old.
I made the backing paper out of my 3D Decoupage CD again.

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

RUDOLF CHALLENGE........MAY 2016

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

Well we have arrived at the 25th of the month yet again, and it's time to post the Rudolf Challenge card for this month.
Joining in this wonderful challenge gets some of your Christmas cards made earlier than you would normally do.
The challenge runs from the 25th of the month to the end of the month over on Srappymo's Blog.
So feel free to join this great challenge.
My card is a bit out of my comfort zone.
Those of you may know I won Mary H's candy, and in my wonderful goodies she provided was this glorious Penny Black stamp.
I tried to follow the colouring on the photo of the stamp as best as I could.
So here is what I made with it.



This is a 6"x7" size card.
I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.
I then coloured it with Derwent Water Colouring Pencils on water colour card.
I added some stickles, and white pen for the snow drops.
I don't know how I did it, but I dropped a bit of red colour on the right hand side, and didn't have time to do it again.
So hopefully you think it's okay.

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

Now this week sees the 7th Birthday of the Allsorts Challenge Blog, and they want you to enter a card with Happy Birthday on.

BUTTERFLY CHALLENGE NO 55........A IS FOR APERTURE AND OR APRICOT

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
Sorry I have been missing for a while, but I have not been well, and trying to get my meds sorted has been a nightmare.
Hopefully they are sorted now until the next time.

My card today is for the Butterfly Challenge, and this time around it is A for aperture , and  or Apricot.
So here is my entry.



This is a 6"x6" size card.
I used some Matt Mirri for the base layer, and then some double sided colour card which has Apricot on the one side, and Peach on the other.
The aperture is a Sue Wilson Die.
The butterfly I won on a recent win on the Butterfly Challenge.
It is only the top layer, and I drew around it to make the solid base.

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

OLDIE FOR FRIDAY

Hi and welcome to another Friday Oldie with ERIKA HERE.
It's all just for fun, but delightful way to show something you have made earlier in you crafting life.
I can't believe how quick these Fridays come around, or is just me slowing down to a snails pace.
I am having a few probs with meds which makes me feel very tired and sleepy all the time so it's taking me a lot longer to get everything done, but the doctor doesn't want to change them as they are the 4th lot I have tried, and the sleepy is not as bad as some of the other side effects I have had.
So onto my Oldie for this week, I am not sure if I have shown this before so excuse me if I have.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
The image is from the Pink Gem Website, and coloured with Promarkers, and Flexmarkers.
Papers are from Papermania Heather Collection.

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

GRANDDAUGHTER BIRTHDAY CARD

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
Today I have a card I made for my daughter to give her Granddaughter as it was her Birthday on the 10th.
Now my little Great Granddaughter does gymnastics, and also goes to running classes as she is quite a fast runner, and loves to run so her parents put her into training classes.
I searched the digi picture sites till I found the image I put on this card.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
I bought the digi image from the Digi Stamp Boutique and coloured her in with Promarkers.
Then I photographed the image and made the backing paper to match on my 3D 2 Decoupage CD.
I inked the edge of the paper,and the image with Colour Cloud Rose Blush Ink.
Now those of you with a keen eye will notice I put the paper on upside down silly me, but it still looks okay I think.

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

BUTTERFLY CHALLENGE NO 54.............R IS FOR RECYCLE AND OR RUBY RED

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
Thank you so much for your visit, and your precious time commenting on my work.
I very much appreciate each and every one.

Today I have my entry into the Butterfly Challenge No 54 which is R for Recycle, and or Ruby Red.
Now I had been contemplating on this one, and suddenly today I thought of what I could do.
So I recycled a bag you get your Pandora purchases in.



The second picture is so you can see the Rose I made some time ago a little easier.
This bag is about just over 6"x6" in size.
I started by measuring the bag, now don't laugh as I am not very good with measurements, as I have mentioned before.
I cut 2 pieces of red card just under 6"x 6" in size.
The white card was snippets left over from a A3 size of card that I had cut down for another project.
I inked the edges of the card with Fired Brick DI, and then I spritzed the card with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists in red.
I stamped a butterfly with the DI, and added some dots with a Promarker.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

OLDIE FOR FRIDAY

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

Well I can't believe it's Friday again, and time to join ERIKA with your Oldie for Friday HERE.
Just post something you have made before on your blog, and comment on Erika's, and she will in turn comment on yours.
It's all just for fun, but a super way to show your new followers what you have done in the past.
So here is mine for this week.
On Tuesday my Great Granddaughter will be 7years of age so this is what I made her last year.


This is a 8"x8" size card.
Now I changed my computer since making this, and for some reason I can't find the inside view of the card.
The image is an already coloured one from the Pink Gem website.
I found the bedroom scene on a Crafters Companion CD.
I decoupaged the image the chest of drawers, the sheet on the bed, and the picture on the wall.

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

ANNIVERSARY CARD

Hi and welcome to all my craft loving friends, and visitors.
Thank you so much for your visit, and the wonderful comments you make.
I really do appreciate every one.

A few of you mentioned using my last card again, but I unfortunately didn't have it back from my sister before she passed away, and don't like to bother my BIL at this sad time.

So onto a happier note, today I have a card I made for my Stepson, and his wife's 3rd Anniversary.
They have been together for 10 years, but only married 3 years ago.
I know her fave colour is purple so this what I came up with.



This is a 8"x7" size card.
I again drew around the largest of the Sue Wilson's Pierced Rectangles Die, and cut out my base card.
I then layered up with the die, and cut out a aperture which I used a snippet of card and double sided stick sheet, and added some Cosmic Shimmer Glacier Ice Glitter.
I also added some corner die cuts to each corner inside the aperture.
The flower is the same die as yesterday's flowers just pinched the flower petals the other way to give a type of Lily looking flower.
The button on the bow is purple, but it looks black in the picture.
Cut the sentiment banner by hand.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

WEDDING CARD AND BOX

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
I do hope you enjoyed your Bank Holiday weekend.
We had family visits, and that is always very nice.

Today I have a Wedding Card and Box I made for my Sister's granddaughter, but the wedding never took place.




This is a 8"x8" size card and box I made to fit.
The colour scheme I was given was Salmon Pink, Ivory, and Navy.
I didn't have the right colour card for the Salmon Pink so I inked some pearlised ivory card with Versa Magic Pink Petunia chalk Ink.
The oval mat was cut out on my ScaNcut machine from the Tattered Lace USB stick.
Now you may think I paper pierced the corners, but it was a happy accident, as the card used was very thick and they just embossed.
So I thought that looked nice for a change.

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