RUDOLF DAY CHALLENGE FEBRUARY 2016.................AND SNIPPETS MAKE

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
Sorry I have been away from my blog for so long, but I have been having trouble with my right shoulder, and typing was quite painful for me.

Today is the start of the Rudolf Challenge for February 2016.
The challenge runs from the 25th of the month to the end of the month on Srappymo's Blog HERE
It's a fabulous way to get making your Christmas cards early so pop over, and join in the fun.
Here is mine for this month.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
The image, and the papers are from the Crafter's Companion CD Paintbox Poppets Winter Collection.
Which I recently got tempted to buy at just £2.85 and what a bargain.
I printed the image off  twice, and then cut away the center image, and decoupaged it to look more like a framed picture.
I also decoupaged the little girl and her teddy.
Isn't she soooooooooo! cute.
My stars are snippets, and the die cuts inside are made with snippets too.
So I am off to the playground with this also, and to to see what antics my playmates are up to this week.

Thank you so much for your visit, and time.
I really do appreciate it as I know time is precious to all of us.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY. 

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

I do hope you can pop back as often as your time allows you.

Well Friday has rolled around yet again, and it's time to share an Oldie with you and ERIKA HERE
It doesn't have to be a card it can be anything you have posted on your blog before.
Just leave a comment on Erika's post so she knows you playing.
I trolled back quite a way for this one, and it was before I started photographing the inside.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
The image was a freebie off the internet.
Coloured in with Promarkers.
I added some Glossy Accents to make it look like there is water dripping from the hose.

BUUTERFLY CHALLENGE AND SNIPPETS CARD

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
Sorry I have been missing for a few days, but it's half term, and Nanny to the rescue for child minding, and we did our usual baking too.
I must admit they are getting so good at it, and they take after someone. LOL.

Well last night I made a card for the Butterfly Challenge.



This is a 6"x6" size card.
Now recently I was very tempted, and bought the Aqua Spectrum Pens, which I have been wanting for ages.
So all this blue is done with those, but beware use gloves or you get blue hands for a few days.
I made the background paper with them, and then stamped all over it with them and my stamp.
I cut out a few flowers, and decoupaged them.
The butterfly die I won on the Butterfly Challenge isn't it pretty.
Coloured my ribbon also with the ink left over from making the paper.
The lace and the die cuts are my snippets.
So I'm off to the playground with this to see what antics everyone is up to while our lovely Miss Di, and Parsnip have a rest for this week.

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

GREEN AND CREAM BIRTHDAY 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.

The sun is shinning in my part of Kent today, so I do hope it is doing the same where ever you may live.

I am a happy bunny today as last night I made my first pop up box, as I have been wanting to make one for ages, but was to scared to try.
I don't know about you but I have to pluck up courage to do something I have never tried before, and I know that sounds silly, but it's just the way I am. 
Mind you I use a Hougie Board to do all my measuring now as I am pants at measuring with a ruler, and the Hougie makes things so much simpler.

Today I have a card I made for a nieghbours Birthday.



This is a 8"x8" size card which by now you must know is my fave size card, as I am nearly always making them.
The doily, corners, and the Happy Birthday were cut out on my ScanNcut with the Tattered Lace USB.
The flowers were made from a roll of ribbon shaped leaves which you can purchase from the Ribbonbox.

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

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
Well another weekend is upon us so I do hope you are doing something very nice.

Today I have a card made for my eldest sister and her hubby as their Anniversary is on the 9th of this month.
I went with a red theme as it's so near to Valentines Day.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
I ran out of red card for this so I coloured white card red with red pigment ink, and Fired Brick DI.
The digi image of the jar was a freebie off the internet, and coloured with Promarkers, and then I edged the hearts with a black glitter Sakura Gelly Roll Pen.
The papers are a download from Cuddly Buddly Crafts.

OLDIE FOR FRIDAY

Hi and welcome to all my craft loving friends, and visitors.
Sorry I wasn't around yesterday to comment, but I was looking after my little Great Grandson for my Granddaughter who needed to go to a funeral at Clacton, so she was away from very early in the morning, and I was so tired when I got home.
He was very good, but I am getting a little old in the tooth to keep my energy going into the evening, after an early start.
So I scheduled my DT post yesterday.
Needed to do some must needed housework today so I am a bit late with this Oldie for Friday.

So it's time to join Erika HERE with one of your older creations.
It doesn't have to be a card it can be anything you have posted before.
So here is a necklace, bracelet, and earrings my sister made me which I showed at least about 3 years ago.


My sister does make some very stunning jewellery, and I have lots she has made me.

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

SNIPPETS BIRTHDAY CARD FOR MY SON

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
Thank you so much for your visit, and all the wonderful comments that you make.
They do make me so happy that you like what I have created.

Today I have a card I made for my Son's Birthday tomorrow.
Now he is my youngest and becomes 45.
oooooooooo! that makes me feel sooooooooooo! old, but in my mind I still feel so young it's only my old bones that reminds me, and a lot of grey hair.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
The papers are Cuddly Buddly downloaded digi papers.
The image is a Hunkydory one from the little book of decoupage.
I decoupaged the front horse.
I chose this image as my Son used to work as a IT Technical Support Manager for a firm that sent the horse racing links to betting shops.
He now works for the Banking industry.
The Happy Birthday paper was snippets left over from my Grandsons Birthday card so I will join the girls in the snippets playground to see what antics they are getting away with this week.

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