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.

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

I have had a very busy week this week a little gardening done in small stages as not to hurt my back, and I organised a outing for the club I run where I live to Eastbourne on Wednesday.
Spent all day Thursday getting over it all.
I also have been having Mr Mojo issues he just doesn't want to work now it's hot again the little blighter.
So suddenly yesterday evening I had some snippets lying around my desk and blow me down Mr Mojo decided to work hooray. 
So here is the card I made completely with snippets.

The image of the flower is the negative of a die cut I used a while ago.
I coloured some snippets for my background, and sprayed glued it, and then added some glitter.
Just added a permanent green pen to make the leaves, and stems darker.
Inked the edges with Cracked Pistachio DOI.
The pink die cut was also a snippet on my desk that I had cut out and not used.
Will be joining my friends at the Pixie's Snippets Playground with this.

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

Hi! Jenny, that is one beautiful card made out of snippets.
In answer to your question ... no one in the family in the police force.
There are some amazing similarities though.
Robert has just signed his new contract for 17/18 with Dundee Football Club.
Have a great weekend

Fabulous use of the negative bit matey!! I tend to save these bits and then forget about them - typical me! Love how you've used snippets and that your Mr Mojo was in full force! Woo hoo. I think my mojo is somewhere roaming around the universe 'cos it ain't with me at the moment and that's for sure. If only me canyon would close up and the pain would go - then it might come back! LOL. Anyway missus take care and hugs from everyone here! Sue Pxxx

I love all the happy glittery elements on this card. A beautiful card and very pretty colours Jenny.

I've just noticed the 'eye candy' on the sidebar of your blog. He really is the most beautiful man isn't he. We're watching Outlander at the moment - one or two episodes each evening. Barbxx
