MOVING ALONG WITH THE TIMES DT CARD..........................COME DANCING

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

So today is the start of another challenge over at 
MOVING ALONG WITH THE TIMES.
It's the B Teams turn, and Hazel L is our lovely host this time around, and she has chosen the theme Come Dancing.
So we would like to see your creations with Dancing on them.
Take a look at the lovely examples from my fellow team mates, and please try and join us.
Here is my effort.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
Now those of you that know me well know this is my fave size of card. 
The image is a Hunkydory one from the Little Book of Decoupage.
I embossed some white card with a mask I bought at the NEC 3 years ago, but there was no name on it.
I then inked it with Victorian Velvet DI.
I used some stickles on her dress, shoes, scarf, and hair as I thought that was what they usually have on their lovely dance dresses.
I made the roses, and the leaves.

I have scheduled this post as I will be looking after my 2 Grand Children, and we will be baking again.

Thank you so much for your visit, and time.
I do hope you are all having a lovely week so far.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

EASTER SNIPPETS CARDS

Hi and welcome to all my craft loving friends, and visitors.
Well I actually managed to make some snippets cards after not being able to join my lovely playmates in the Snippets Playground for a couple of weeks.
When I make my 8"x8" size cards out of A3 card I get a piece left over which I made into these Easter cards.

  
These are 6" by nearly 4".
The masons jars were a free download from craftsUprint after I bought some other items, and are designed by Eileen Mikolayunas.
Gosh I don't know how you would pronounce that surname, but the images are so lovely, and cute, and what a very talented lady.
I just wish I could draw.

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

This is a 8"x8" size card.
It is a card kit you download from 
craftsUprint.

OLDIE FOR FRIDAY

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
Well I can't believe it's Friday again already, and where on earth did this week go to.
So it's time to share and Older creation with ERIKA HERE
Just post something you have posted before on your blog, and comment on ERIKA'S post so she knows you are playing along.
Here is mine for this week it's a wedding card, and box.
Now I know the colours are unusual, but the person getting married had chocolate brown and a gold theme.

  


This is a 8"x8" size card, and box I made to fit it.
Roses were bought ones, and I coloured the edges with a gold pen, and glitter.
The writing on the card, and box is brown, but where I have lightened the photo it has turned blue looking.

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

MALE BIRTHDAY CARD

Hi and welcome to all my craft loving friends, and visitors.
I notice I have another follower, but I am not sure who you are, so welcome to my blog, and thank you for joining me in my crafting journey.
 
Well we have been having some glorious weather here in Kent, but it is still a tad cold, but at least the sun shines nicely, and it's not dull, and drab.

Today I have a card I made for my Brother in Law who's Birthday was on Sunday.
It was his first since loosing my sister.



This was a card kit from craftsUprint.
I decoupaged the watch and put the date of his Birthday on the date of the watch, then added glossy accents to it.
I cut part of the inside picture away as I wrote on it before I decided to photograph it.

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

 Sorry I have been missing again for a while, but last Thursday my eldest sister passed away from Cancer, and I couldn't bring my self to write about it until now.
The funeral is next week so I will be off to Wales early next week.
She wanted everyone to wear something bright and cheerful to celebrate her life.

I decided to make a oval shaped easel card with my Spellbinders Grand Scolloped Oval Die.
The flowers are from a silk bunch I bought ages ago, and I just took them apart, and added some stamens to them.
The leaf flourishes are Spellbinders.

Thank you so much for your visit, and time.
