BIRTHDAY CARD FOR MY GRANDSON

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
I do hope you are enjoying your weekend so far, and the weather is being kind to you.

Now tomorrow is my Grandson's 17th Birthday, and I was stumped for a while what to put on his card, that I haven't used before.
Until I came across this digi image, and thought it quite appropriate for him as all young peeps like burgers.
I struggled with the colour for the bread bun, but hopefully you think it looks okay.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
The digi image can be purchased from a site called From the Heart.
The papers are a download from Cuddly Buddly.
I used Promarkers to colour it in, and then used Glossy Accents over the tomato sauce bit.

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

GUEST DESIGNER FOR BUTTERFLY CHALLENGE.........#47 O FOR OVER THE EDGE

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
A few weeks ago I won the
BUTTERFLY CHALLENGE 
 and as part of the win, I was invited to be a Guest Designer.
The challenge runs for a fortnight, and I chose the letter O For Over The Edge.
So here is what I came up with for my Over The Edge it's another Tissue Box as I do love making these.



These are so easy to make, and to think I was afraid to make them at one time.
I measure my tissue box, and then do my scoring on my Hougie Board.
This one measures 5" high 4and a half inches to one side and 4" on the other.
So I cut 2 A4 pieces of card down to 5"  in height, and then I score half an inch for your gluing flap then 5" and then 9" and cut off what's left.
Glue together your flaps to make your box.
The lid will be 6 and half inches by 6 inches, and score at 1" around each side, and glue like the lid of a box.

Thank you so much for your visit and time.
I do hope you can join us for this current challenge.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

BUTTERFLY CHALLENGE NO 46 I FOR INKS

Hi and welcome to all my craft loving friends, and visitors.
Thank you so much for your visit, and the wonderful comments you make.

All went well with my DH hospital appointment yesterday.
He is making good progress, but has another hospital visit on Thursday for a heart monitor.

So on to my card, for this fortnights Butterfly Challenge a bit of late entry as it finishes in 10 hours time.



This is a 6"x6" size card.
I inked my background with DI, Peacock Feathers, Worn Lipstick, Milled Lavender, Cracked Pistachio.
I then stamped my pattern with Memento London Fog, and a Chloe stamp.
The butterfly is Penny Black stamp, and is also stamped with London Fog onto more card I coloured with DI.
I added some stickles to it, and some stamens for the antenna.
I used some coloured snippets of card for the die cuts, and the corners so I will be off to join the playground with this.

Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

RUDOLF CHALLENGE JANUARY 2016

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
I do hope you are all keeping well, and you had a great weekend.
Hopefully the weather was kind to you all.

Well today is the start of the Rudolf Challenge 2016.
It runs from the 25th of the month to the end of the month  HERE.
The lovely Scrappymo is in charge, and does a wonderful job too.
So here is my first entry for this year.



I don't know what you call this shape card, but I saw a similar one being demonstrated on C&C  so I put my own twist on it.
The paper and the image were a freebie from a craft magazine a year or so ago.

Thank you so much for you visit.
I am off to the hospital with my DH today for his check up after his op.
He has quite a few scheduled  appointments over the coming weeks.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

DAUGHTER BIRTHDAY CARD

Hi and welcome to all my craft loving friends, and visitors.
Today I have a Daughter Birthday card I made for my Daughter to give my Granddaughter on her Birthday.
Her Birthday was last Friday, if you remember I showed an Oldie I made on Friday.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
I glued the snake skin paper to some snippets card, and cut out the boots from my old boot template which has a few boots and shoes on it.
My daughter bought my Granddaughter boots for her Birthday so I went with that theme.
The sparkly flowers my eldest sister gave me when I was in Wales, and I think they are jewellery flowers.
The sentiment label was a Tonic freebie from the Create and Craft Club where you just pay the postage.
Paper is a Cuddly Buddly download.

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

50th BIRTHDAY CARD AND BOX

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
Thank you so much for all your really great comments on my tissue box.
I am always so pleased you like what I create.

Today I have another 50th Birthday card and box I made for my daughter in law.
Her Birthday was on the 30th of December hence the colours and style.
She loves her boots so I thought I would go with this theme.




This is a 8"x8" size card and box I made to fit it.
I used a embossing folder, and then rubbed over gold wax to highlight the embossing.
The boots I cut out of a template I have had for many years now on to brown snake skin paper that I glued to the top of some snippets card so I can join the girls at the snippets playground with this as I have been AWOL for a few weeks.
I wonder what antics they have been up to in my absence.
Trimmings on the box were cut out on my ScanNcut.

Thank you again for your visit, and time.
I do hope you all have a wonderful day.
Lots of crafty love.   JENNY.

SISTER BIRTHDAY CARD

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
I do hope you all had a wonderful
Christmas, and a Very Happy New Year to you all.

Sorry I have been away so long, but a lot has happened since I last posted.
On my return from seeing my sisters in Wales my hubby told me he had suffered a Mini Stroke a couple of days before my return.
He is okay now, but had to have a op to clear a blockage in the artery in his neck. 
So things have been very hectic as he was in Kent and Canterbury Hospital which is quite a drive from where I live, and it is just a 2 lane A road to reach it, plus it was flooded in places with all this rain.

My sister coping well and living each day as it comes.
My other sister visits her everyday, as does her family.
My only problem is I don't think I will get back to see her because of my hubbies health issues.

So on a lighter note this is a card I made for my other sister's Birthday.
Sorry it came a bit dark, but she loved it.



This is a 8"x8" size card which I cut to this shape.
I glued some embossed dark brown pearlised card to the shape.
The leaf detail was cut out on my ScaNcut.
I added some pearl  flower beads to the edges.

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