I have been card making for about 25 years. I have made things all my life as my Mum and Grand Mother taught me lots of hobbies. I have made my own clothes, knitted garments, hand embroidered items of clothing, and crocheted items too. I love to bake my own cakes as well.

Hi and welcome to all my craft loving friends, and visitors.
Thank you so much for your visit, and your precious time.
As I know time is very precious to all of us.

Made a quick CAS card yesterday with a Nbus stamp I have had for a couple of years.
Now I could never line this stamp up before I had my Misti so I am happy I could use it this time as I really like the design.

This is a 7"x5" tent style card I made.
The lacy  scalloped border stamp was a freebie stamp from a couple of years ago with a stamping magazine that a blog friend bought me.
This was stamped on some snippets of card.
So I will be off to join my Playground friends with this.
The flower in the centre was also from that same set.
Decided to do some doodling with a black pen also.
Sentiment was also a freebie from a recent magazine. 

Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

This gorgeous Jenny. I love the stamping and the monochrome look to it. Hope you are well. Hugs Christine xx

Liz said...

Thanks for your comment about the Misti. A friend of mine has the Tim Holtz one, I'm waiting to see how she's getting on with it. As you say, it's much cheaper than the Misti so I might go for that one if it's okay. xx

Di said...

Wow Jenny - this is really so classy! I think you could tackle CAS with ease!

And here's a secret - I'm not overly fond of cats either. Give me a doggie any day :)
