OLIVIA OWL TRUG


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

It's a very busy week for me this week I have quite a few Birthday cards to make, I am also hosting the challenge over at my DT blog, and I am GD at Rudolf Challenge again on the 25th of the month.
So if I get bogged down and don't visit you please excuse me, but I will try, and keep things going if I can.

Now as I do like to join in just a few challenges that I support, and that's not too many as I can't remember where I have been sometimes if I do too many.
I know I can hear you saying keep a record, but I tried that, and it didn't work.
So with that in mind I made this yesterday for the Allsorts Challenge of which I have been very lucky.


This was a Kit I won over at the Allsorts Challenge, and it's from 
The Hobby House.
First time I have made one of these.
The dowling handle I painted with Starlight paint, and also the flowers too.
I made a small mistake on the milk cartons, and the holes for the string, but that was a learning curve.

Thank you so much for your visit, and the wonderful comments you make.
They really do make my day.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

MINT BUTTERFLY EASEL CARD


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

May I welcome my 2 newest followers, and thank you so much for choosing to follow me.
I do hope you can visit as often as your time allows.

I do hope you had a good weekend, and the weather was lovely where ever you may live.

Today I have a card that I made for the Butterfly Challenge.
Just made this challenge with a day or so to spare again.
First of all I thought I didn't have any mint coloured card, but one night when I couldn't sleep with my RLS it came to me that I did have some Topsy Turvey card that had mint on the one side woo hoo.


This card was made with the Tattered Lace Broderie Anglaise Die I won on the Allsorts challenge recently.
I had to cut out the largest die in the set a few times to make the card a bit more sturdy.
The butterfly is a spellbinders one, and the flowers and foliage are Tattered Lace Mini Dies.

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

SPRING SHABBY CHIC CARD


Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors
.
Well my family arrived yesterday evening, and while I was waiting for them to arrive I managed to make a Spring Card for the Frilly and Funkie Challenge which I like to enter.
Now I had a slight mishap with my hot glue gun making this, and blistered the tip of my middle finger so typing is quite awkward for me at the mo.



This is a 6"x6" size card.
The purple papers are from a Papermania pad I have had for ages.
The daffodil paper is a Cuddly Buddly download.
Flowers from my stash lacy doily is a TL Broderie Anglaise one which I won last week on the Allsorts Challenge.
Butterfly made from petals of a flower.

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

MONOCHROME CAS CARD


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.

THANK YOU CARD WITH SPRING FLOWERS


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

Had a few busy days getting ready for family who are arriving on the weekend.
Just love it when they visit, but always feel very lonely when they have gone home again.
I expect some of you feel exactly the same too when your family visit that live away from you.

Today I have a card I made to enter the Allsorts challenge, now I have been extremely lucky in this challenge, and won some wonderful prizes  too.
 So here is my card for this weeks challenge.



This is a 8"x6" size tent card.
The image is from the Give it a Squeeze Feathered Friends CD.
The artist is Daphne Baxter.
Instead of doing a squeeze card I just decoupaged the spring flowers, and added black stones to the eyes of the Geese.

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

GRANDSON'S BIRTHDAY CARD


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

Tomorrow is my Grandson's 13th Birthday, and he is a goalie in his football team, but lately he has started to play Basket Ball.
So this is the card I came up with for his Birthday this year.



This is a 8"x7" size card .
I cut out the frame with Sue Wilson's Rectangle Die set, now I only have the B set so I used snippets left over from other projects to give me my inner frame.
The image is from the Internet, and so is the emojo basket balls inside.
Love how this one turned out.

Thank you so much for your visit, and time, I really do appreciate your visit, and comments so much.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

BUTTERFLY CHALLENGE.......G IS FOR GLOSSY ACCENTS/ AND OR SLATE BLUE


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

I spent a few hours making totally the wrong card for this challenge so I had to re-make it again.
I used my Misti to do my stamping as it was an early Birthday present from my DH.
Now a cautionary tale for anyone about to buy a Misti.
Nothing wrong with it, but after buying mine I found Tim Holtz makes a similar one sold by Tonic for much less money.
So anyone who wants to buy one check this out, as I found out too late after I bought mine.

Onto my card for the Butterfly Challenge.


Now I had a lot of trouble with the colour slate blue as I don't have any card that colour so I used my Memento Brilliance Pearlescent Ice Blue to colour white card.
I also used a stamp set I won in the Butterfly Challenge a couple of months ago.
I added my Glossy Accents to the bigger Butterflies.
I used Cosmic Shimmer Silver PVA glue for my dots, but mine is getting old, and after it dried I noticed the pin holes in them so there must have been air holes I didn't notice.

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