THINKING OF YOU CARD


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

Sorry I have been missing for so long.
Hubbies extension to his  shed is up and running wonderfully now, and family has gone home.
I have also had some child minding to do with my Grandchildren as they are now on their summer hols. 
Will be doing this on Monday and Tuesday next week also.
Then I have a break as Mum and Dad will be off with them separately for a few weeks.

Today I have a card I made a couple of days ago for the Allsorts Challenge, but haven't had time to post it.



This is a 8"x8" size tent style card.
I have used pearls and gems on this card as I do love using them both or individually as they both can just finish a project  perfectly.
The papers are a Cuddly Buddly download.
The lace insert in the circle is Snippets left over from another card I made.
So I will be joining my playground friends with this.
Used Glamour Dust around the edges, and glittered another piece of Snippets in the circle under the lace edges.

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

GRANDDUAGHTER'S ANNIVERSARY CARD


Hi and welcome to all my craft loving friends, and visitors.

I do hope you are all having a good weekend, and the weather is being kind to you wherever you live.

Well when I mentioned my cards I had to make  I left my Granddaughter out, but luckily I made hers the week before last.

Now her Birthday is on the 14th and the same day as my other Granddaughter's 5th Wedding Anniversary.
So here is the Anniversary card I finished this morning, and I can show it as she doesn't look at my blog.



The card I used for this is Hunkydory Ombre card stock which is light blue at the top, and ending up green at the bottom.
I cut out a circle in white card, and the made a heart aperture with a Tonic die.
Then I used my Tattered Lace Shabby Offset Oval Die for the lacy pattern in the inside of the heart.
 Had to cut it up so it would fit.
Then I cut out lots of little flourishes that came with the Square Shabby Offset Dies to go around the outside of the heart.
Made the flowers and inked them with DOI Broken China, and Cracked Pistachio 
Hope you like it as I was quite pleased with how it turned out.

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

MINI WRAP JOURNAL


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

I have been working on this Mini Wrap Journal for a few days on and off  as I thought it was a lovely idea.
You can find the excellent tutorial HERE 
if you would like to have a go your self. 
Sorry this is picture heavy.


Here I made slanted pockets to put photos in.
In the middle here I made a flap pocket for more storage.


Then on the back of that I made a page with more storage with a magnetic catch.

 

The other thing I did was to stick more of the card stock to the inside of the covers to make them more sturdy.
Couldn't find any lined pages the size I wanted so I made my own.
All the papers used are from the 12x12 paper pad I bought at B&M for the grand price of £2.49, and it was double sided, and 250gsm, except for the Humming Bird cards in the centre and ribbon which is Heartfelt Creations.
The yellow card on the spine and the middle was snippets so I will be joining my playground friends with this.
I will also be joining the Butterfly Challenge as I have added a dangling key to my journal.

Hope you like my version as I do like trying something new quite often.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

SPORTING BIRTHDAY CARD


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

I do hope everyone is feeling well, and for those who may be suffering in any way BIG HUGS winging their way to you.

Well July is one of the months that I have a lot of family Birthdays, and Anniversaries to make cards for.
2 Older Grandsons, and 2 Great Granddaughter's Birthdays.
My eldest Granddaughter's 5th Anniversary, and my sister's Anniversary.
Oh my word I better get a move on.
Funnily enough the Challenge Theme over at Allsorts is sport so with that in mind I made my one Grandson's Birthday cards.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
The racing motor bikes image is from the Hunkydory little book of decoupage.
I made the motor bike backing paper with my 3D2 CD.
The Happy Birthday paper is a download from Cuddly Buddly Crafts.
Verse inside is from my Verse Editor CD. 

Thank you so much for your visit, and the wonderful comments about my Granddaughter's picture.
It is her 5th Wedding Anniversary on the 14th of this month.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

ART DECO BIRTHDAY CARD


Hi and welcome to all my craft loving friends, and visitors.

I do hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.
Today is my Daughter's Birthday, and she was going to see Adele tomorrow night, which was a present from her Daughter, but sadly it was cancelled so she will have to wait a little longer for the concert.
Still all was not lost as her fiance took her to see the show Wicked this afternoon I do hope she liked it.

So here is the card I made her for her Birthday as she loves Art Deco. 



This is a 8"x8" size card.
The image, and paper which was really an insert is from the Kanban Klikk USB.
The insert was quite pale so I printed it again on top of the first print to give it more colour.
The oval lacy die cut is a Tattered Lace one that I won on the Allsorts Challenge a couple of months ago.
Cut it out in blue also and used the top and bottom to fill up a gap.
I added a gem to her ring on her finger, and some glitter to her head dress.
Also I added some clear sparkle pen from Crafters Companion to her stole.
Lastly I die cut some flowers out of the card that was left.

Also here is a picture of my Granddaughter on her yearly outing to Ascot Ladies Day the other week.

 

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