OLDIE FOR FRIDAY

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

Well it's Friday again, and time to join ERIKA HERE  with an Oldie for Friday.
Just post something older you have posted or made a while ago.
It doesn't have to be a card either it can be anything you have made.
I do urge you to pop along to Erika's blog and see the wonderful creation she has posted today.
So here is mine for this week.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
I used the Sue Wilson Classic Rose Die to make this design.
Underneath I used Mica Flakes on double sided sticky sheet for my background.
The sentiment is from a Creative Expressions stamp, stamped with Potting Soil Archival Ink.

Well I do hope you all have a super weekend.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

MOVING ALONG WITH THE TIMES DT CARD.......................SO 8OS

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

It's time once more for a new challenge over at 
MOVING ALONG WITH THE TIMES
It's the B Teams turn to hold the challenge of which I am a DT member, and the lovely Lena is our host this time around, and she has chosen the theme So 80s.
So we would like to see your creations with something from the 80s on it.
So here is my DT card.

  
I decided to go with a Easel card this time around.
My DH loves the movies Back To The Future which were screened in the 80s so I thought I would use this sort of image which looks like the Back To The Future Logo.
Please pop over to see what my lovely team mates have created for this theme.

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

BUTTERFLY CHALLENGE NO 53 .....T IS FOR TEXTURE AND OR TEAL

Hi and welcome to all my craft loving friends and visitors.
I'm off to have my hair cut this afternoon so my mane will look a little tidier for a while.

So on to my Butterfly Challenge card which I made last night.
This time around they want to see Texture, and or Teal.
So here is what I decided to create.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
I used the Sue Wilson Layering Dies again.
The center die is another Sue Wilson one The Classic Adorned Squares, and then I used the Sue Wilson Weaving Die.
The Butterfly Die is one I won in the Challenge a while ago.
Added some Glamour Dust to give it a little sparkle.

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

RUDOLF CHALLENGE......APRIL 2016

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
Sorry I have been missing, but my Daughter was on holiday from work last week, so my Daughter, Myself, and my Granddaughter had a lovely week enjoying each others company, and doing some shopping as us girls like to do.
We had a wonderful time.

So today is the start of Aprils Rudolf Challenge.
This runs from the 25th of the month to the end of the month on Scrappymo's Blog HERE
All you have to do to enter is make a Christmas card, and enter it into the Challenge. 
It is a really fab way of getting some of your Christmas cards made.
So here is mine for this month.



This card is 8"x7" in size.
I drew around the largest die in the Sue Wilson Double Pierced Rectangles die, and then cut out my layers.
I used the Sue Wilson embossing folder Swirling Holly in the center, and used a gilding wax on it.
I stamped the design around the frame with Pine Needles DI.
Not happy with how it came out, but tried every way to get the design stamp, and the sentiment stamp to stamp better, but they must be faulty or something or maybe that's just how they are supposed to be.

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

Thank you so much for your visit, and the wonderful comments you make.
It makes showing my work so worthwhile.

Today I have another of the Baby cards I made for my Granddaughter's friend.




This is a 8"x8" size card.
It comes as a card kit from craftsUprint, and you just print it off make it up how you like.
I decoupaged the pram, flowers, and the butterflies.
As the  there was a slight lilac colour in the design I edged  the light blue card with a Versa Mark chalk ink to go with it.

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

My DH had a hospital appointment at Canterbury Hospital yesterday so we were out all day.

So here is mine for this week it is some boxes I made with some bits of crochet, and lace.
Some of the bits of crochet were sent to me by some special blog friends who we don't see about blog land any more, and some I did myself.


















































I made these after watching a U tube
video on some very similar.

Thank you so much for your visit, and time.

BABY BOY EASEL CARD AND BAG

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

Well today I have the Baby card I made for my Granddaughter to give to her best friend on the birth of her first baby.




I made a little pocket at the back of the card to house a small card for them to put their greetings on which you can just see in 2nd picture as you have nowhere on an easel card to write on.
This new Tonic Veranda Twisting Layering Die lends itself perfectly to an easel card.
I love how this turned out it reminds me of Wedgewood China, and that takes me back to remembering my Grandmother who always had Wedgewood ornaments, and a tea service.

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

SNIPPETS PLAYGROUND CHALLENGE CARD FOR WEEK 224

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
Sorry I have been missing for a few days, but my Granddaughter's best friend had a Baby Boy late Thursday night, and I have been busy making a few cards for myself, my granddaughter, and my daughter to give her.
I wanted to do this because it's her first Baby, and she lost her Mum to the big C in the middle of February, and she has been such a treasured friend to my granddaughter.
It was also a bakers day at my other youngest granddaughter's school yesterday so we spent the day together, and boy was I tired when she went as she loves to print things off and then laminate them.

Now I have had a very lucky week with challenges I won the Butterfly challenge, and then on Sunday I won the snippets challenge.
 So this morning I made this card for my snippets entry this week.
It's all made from card left over from other cards I have made.

  

This is a 6"x 4" size card.
It's what I have left over from an A3 size card when I make my 8"x8" cards.
The embossing folder, the cup stamp, and the sentiment stamp were freebies from a craft magazine.
After embossing I coloured the card with colour cloud ink Rose Blush.
I stamped the image on a snippet of card with London Fog ink, and then coloured it with Promarkers.
I made the flower out of more snippets of paper, and coloured the edges with colour cloud ink.
So I am definitely off to the playground to join my playground mates with some naughty antics, and hopefully someone has distracted Miss Di, and the lovely Parsnip from catching us.

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

BIRTHDAY CARD FOR A LITTLE GRANDSON.

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
May I say a big welcome to my latest follower, and thank you for choosing to follow me.
I do hope to see you here as often as your time allows.

Today I have a card I made for my daughter to give her little Grandson who turned one at the end of March.
I photographed this before I put the No 1 on it, and the saying inside.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
The card design is from craftsUprint, and I just added the paper round the edges and some ribbon.
I also decoupaged the elephant.
I tried my hand at foiling with a Sakura quickie glue pen, and some foil I have had for years.
Don't very much like how it turned out so won't be using it again.

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

BUTTERFLY CHALLENGE 51...........M IS FOR MARGINS AND OR MINT

Hi and welcome to everyone that loves to craft, and any visitors that may just land on my blog.

Today I have a card I made yesterday for the current Butterfly Challenge of which the the letter this time around is M for Margins, and or Mint.
Now I struggled with this I must admit, as I didn't have any mint shade card.
Good old inks to the rescue though.
So here is what I came up with.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
I edged the card with a Mint Promarker, and then I inked a butterfly stamp with Cracked Pistachio DI, and stamped all around the margins, and then I put dots between the butterflies with the mint Promarker.
I stamped, and heat embossed a flower with white embossing powder onto white card, and then inked the card with Creative Expressions Fresh Grass Colour Cloud Blending Ink.
My ribbon was coloured with the cloud ink also, and it did turn out Mint, but looks darker on the photo.
 Sentiment is a Creative Expressions Stamp.

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

ANOTHER BABY BOY CARD AND BAG .................USING UP SOME SNIPPETS

Hi and welcome to all my friends who just love to craft, and also to any visitors that may pop by to have a look at what I have created.

Today I have another Baby Boy card, and bag I made for another of my daughter's colleagues who's wife has just had a Baby.




This is a 8"x8" size card.
When I made the last one I cut out the wrong colour card for my layering so I had the snippets left over to use up on this one.
I also wanted to stamp on the little 4"x4" size cards inside, and thought I didn't have any Baby stamps.
Well how wrong could I be, as I bought a huge set of stamps years ago from C&C and put them in a folder, and forgot about them as us crafty peeps do.
Luckily I remembered, and they did just what I wanted them to do.
Image of the Baby from a card kit bought at craftUprint.

So I'm off to join my playmates in the Snippets Playground with this.
Thank you so much for your visit, and the wonderful comments you make.
I very much appreciate everyone.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

BABY BOY CARD AND BAG

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
I do hope you all have a great weekend, and the weather is kind to you.

I was asked by my daughter to make a card for a work colleague who had a Baby Boy recently, and they wanted a picture of the Baby in it, and all the staff be able to sign the card.
So here is what I came up with.





 This is a 8"x8" size card.
 The die used on the card was a Tonic Venetian Lace Layering Die.
I used the Sue Wilson Hearts Lattice embossing folder for the inside, and the bag.
I decorated a few 6"x6" scolloped cards to go in the pockets inside so the staff could sign them.

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