THANK YOU CARD


Hi, and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Thank you so much for your well wishes on my hubbies health probs.
The outcome is that he did have another stroke back a month ago, and we weren't told till he visited the TIA Clinic on a follow up consultation last Tuesday he was then prescribed a fit medicine for the problem caused on the Saturday night when we spent so many hours at AE.
This caused him more symptoms just like he was having another stroke.
He currently can't use his right arm properly or his right leg and has to walk with a walking frame for small amounts as he gets very worn out.
So I won't be about much as I have look after him quite a lot.

In the meantime here is a Thank You card I made to say thank you to you all.
I won the stamps I used on a good blog friends posts where she often offers a card or stamps to her peeps that comment so if you are interested in visiting her, and I must say it is well worth a visit here is her blog.

RUDOLF DAYS CHALLENGE...........SEPTEMBER 2018


Hi, and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

My DH got rushed into hospital in the early hours of Sunday morning with a suspected stroke again.
We sat around AE for 12 hours waiting for decisions on whether to admit him.
We arrived at the hospital at 2.45 AM and were not seen by anybody till 4.00Am, and that was a nurse taking blood, and doing blood pressures.
Finally we saw a Doctor at 8.15AM, and then was asked to wait in the waiting room again. 
At 12.Pm after seeing 2 more Doctors we were told they would like to admit him, but didn't have a bed till 3.00PM.
I know the health service is stretched, and they do their best, but we sat on very hard seats  all that time, and my poor hubby was so uncomfortable, and feeling so poorly, and of course frightened.
After all he is 79 years of age too.
Home again now, but having trouble moving around, and doing things.
So I may not be around much for a while.

I made my card for the Rudolf Challenge last week, and as it's not my turn to DT I can join in the challenge.
As always it's anything goes as long as it's Christmas and
ONE ENTRY PER PERSON.
There is a lovely prize to won to.

  

This is a 6"x6" size card.
I started by stamping my background paper with a freebie stamp and Memento Northern Pine Ink.
Then I stamped my Red Cardinal in Versafine Ink and heat embossed it.
Coloured it in with Promarkers.
Then I added some glue in dots, and used faux snow for the falling snow.
Sentiments were freebie stamps also.

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

KINGFISHER CARD

Today starts another great challenge over at Allsorts, and the theme is water or blue.
So here is my entry into that challenge.



This is a 5"x7" tent style card I made.
The lovely Kingfisher image my  friend gave when we were crafting the other day, and it's from one of the Hunkydory little book series.
She also gave me lots of mirri mats too.
I added stickles to the water to give it a sheen, and a stone for the Kingfisher's eye.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I really do appreciate every visit, and wonderful comment.

1st BIRTHDAY CARD


Hi, and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

I do hope you are all okay especially those who live north of the country as I know they have had the tail end of storm Ali.

Yesterday I spent the whole day crafting with a friend making things for the MacMillan coffee morning.

I was asked by a lady that works with my Daughter to make her a Birthday card for  her Great Grandson.
She wanted Swings, slides, and roundabouts on it.
So this is what I made her.



 This is a 7"x7" size card.
Now the lady in question didn't tell me she didn't have a husband.
So it came quickly back to change the saying to my instead.
The theme was to be anything to do with playgrounds.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I really appreciate every ones visit.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

CHRISTMAS CARD WITH A SCENE


Hi, and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Have been playing about with my freebie stamps today so I could enter the Allsorts Challenge this week.
So I thought I would make a Christmas card so my stash of Christmas cards gets larger.

Not sure about this scene, and I had great troubles with the snow stamp it wouldn't stay on the Misti or a stamping block in the end I just had to use my hand for the stamping.



This is a 7"x7" size card.
I started by masking off my moon and then inked my sky with DOI Broken China, and then added Faded Jeans DI.
I swooshed some Tumbled Glass DI across the moon.
Then I added my little house trees, and greetings.
I then cleaned the ink from the house with a wet paintbrush, and tissue, and added some white gel pen to the roof, and some grey Memento ink to the walls of the house.
I grounded my house, and my trees with the Grey Memento Ink on a brush with water.
Finally used an antistatic bag all over it and stamped my snow with Versamark embossing ink, and heat embossed it with Seafoam White embossing powder.
I did add a Spectrum Clear Glitter pen to the snow, but I'm not sure if it will show on camera.
The inside was stamped with more of the freebie stamps.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I really appreciate every visit, and wonderful comment.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

DARNELLS TWOFER CHALLENGE NO 9.........LEAVES


Hi, and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Darnell has been running a
 Twofer Challenge every month, and I did join in earlier in the year, but couldn't manage for a quite a few months, so I thought it was about time I tried to join in.
So I made time to make my Twofer cards this morning.


The challenge is to make 2 cards using the same stamps or die cuts for different occasions, and leaves is the challenge this month.
Here is my effort one is a 7"x7" in size, and the other is 5"x7" in size.
I started by spraying snippets of white card with Tattered Angels Mica sprays in Orange, Red, Yellow, and a Brown which are colours you find in Autumn Leaves.
When dry I stamped my leaves that came as a freebie last month with the Creative Stamping Magazine with Versafine Ink in my Misti.
The sentiments were also from the same set.
Then I set about designing my cards.
Sorry the photos don't show up the lovely mica look to the sprayed card it seems to have come out looking very dull.



Thank you for your visit, and precious time.
I really appreciate each visit and the wonderful comments.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

HUNKYDORY CARD KIT


Hi, and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

I do hope you all having a fab weekend, and I hope our US blog friends are all safe from the weather they are having in some parts.

Today I have a card I made from a Hunkydory kit that came with one of the kits I bought a while ago.
Now there were 6 of these in the kit, and after making the first one I decided to make the rest in case I forgot how to make them later on.
Not sure what design they are, but they fold flat for postage, and are A5 in size. 


I just added some extra butterflies, and pearls so all in all a quick card to make, but effective looking.
I think I made the 6 in just under an hour.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I really appreciate every visit, and comment.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Hi, and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Thank you so much for all your good wishes on my DH health.

Was asked by my Daughter to make this card for the lady who works on the reception desk where she works as she was retiring.
She wanted and A4 size card so everyone who works there could sign it.
So this is what I made for her.



As I said this is an A4 size card made from A3 white card that was 300 GSM  in weight, and  it's from the Hunkydory A3 Pads of card which is wonderful to work with, and such good value as it's only £14.99 for the pad of 50 sheets.
Used Hunkydory card with a sequin finish for the main part. 
The flowers and lace are from
 The Works, and the Corner Die was a freebie in a craft magazine a few years back.
The image is Hunkydory also, and the inside is Hunkydory paper, and I used picture from their little books to make the A5 cards inside for people to write their wishes on.

WEDDING CARD AND BOX.........AND FINAL BLOG ANNIVERSARY PRIZE.


Hi, and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Sorry I couldn't post this Monday or Tuesday as my DH hasn't been too well, and we have had to visit the hospital twice over the last few days.
A few more tests, and maybe another operation if the outcome is the same as it was a few years ago.

Well onto to my final winner of my Blog Anniversary prize of £15, and Tad-Dah the name drawn out is
 Kate of Love Socks and Cards Blog.
Kate please email me with your preference of where you would like me to buy your voucher.

Now onto a wedding card and box made for my Sister, and Niece to give to my Great Nephew on his wedding.




This is a 8"x8" size card, and box I made to fit it.
I purchased the lovely embossed pearlised card to make this.
Now the bridesmaids were wearing Dark Coral dresses so this set me a task as I couldn't find card in that colour.
I tried out a few different inks to get the right colour I wanted, and finally used Worn Lipstick, and Fossilised Amber DOI to get this result, and go with the ribbon used on the box.
Decided to make a shaker design for a change.
Flowers are from WOC and inked with the same inks.
This is the one my Sister gave, and in a few weeks you will see the one my Niece gave them.

Thank you for your visit, and precious time,
It's always very much appreciated.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

RUDOLF DAYS CHALLENGE ....AUGUST 2018 DT CREATION.


Hi, and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Sorry I haven't been about again lots going on in my life at the mo, and blogging is having to take a back seat for a while.

It's the 25th of the month again so soon, and time for the 
RUDOLF DAYS CHALLENGE
The challenge runs from the 25th of the month to the end of the month, and as always it's anything goes as long as it's Christmas.
ONE ENTRY PER PERSON.
There is always a lovely prize on offer to the winner donated by the very generous Mo.  
It's my turn for a DT creation this month so this is what I decided to make a word book of sorts.

  

I made this totally by hand cutting this out.
I had big No templates to use for the numbers.
The papers used were from a cheap Christmas paper pad from the works last year.
I made a slight mistake when cutting the books pages as I cut them at 5" high, and in hindsight they should have been 5.25" instead so the numbers fitted better.

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

POPPIES TAG


Hi, and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Also welcome to anyone who just pops by to look at my work.

We have been having Internet problems in my town it just kept dropping out, and you did not know when it was going to happen.
At first we thought it was just us till a engineer told us it was happening all over the town, and they were working on it.
Also not been too well hence my lack of posts.
I think it was the heat that got to me as I'm not good too good when it's too hot.

So this morning I had an idea for the Allsorts Challenge, and this is what I made.


The tag I cut out by hand out of a snippet of white card, and it measures 8"x4".
I sprayed my tag with Tattered Angels mica sprays in yellow, orange, and green.
Then I had drew the stems of the poppies.
The poppies were from a MCS CD, and I just added some red colour with a Sharpie pen and glued them on the stems.
I drew the grass with a green sharpie pen, and then cut my leaves out by hand from some snippets of green card, and glued them on too.
Finally I added some of Wendy's butterflies she makes, and some ribbon.
For the Butterfly Challenge I have used Ferrari Red, and flowers.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I really appreciate each visit, and wonderful comment.

40th BIRTHDAY CARD


Hi, and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Also welcome to anyone who just pops by to look at my work.

I now have a black and blue little toe because I caught it in the supermarket trolley this week, and my did I see stars when I did it.
My Daughter said do you want to go to the hospital, but I think it's only sprained, and feeling slightly better now.
Still hobbling a little though. 

Today I have a card I made for a colleague at my Daughter's works.
So hence the inside with lots of post cards for them all to sign.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
The papers, and the image are all Hunkydory, and also the postcards I made out the Hunkydory little book.
Ran out of the yellow card so I had to do a verse tag with a snippet of cream card.
Butterflies made with a die I won on the Butterfly Challenge just drew around the die and cut out a blank base for the butterfly, and added some stamens for the antenna.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.

MOVING ALONG WITH THE TIMES.............DT CARD ....WILD ANIMALS


Hi, and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Also welcome to anyone who just pops by to look at my work.

It's Thursday, and time for a new challenge over at 
It's the B Teams turn again, and the lovely Debbie our new member of the B Team is hosting this challenge, and she would like to see Wild Animals on your entries please.
The Challenge runs from today till Wednesday 1st of August and closes at 6PM on that day.
No sponsors for the challenge, but we love to see what you create, and you could be picked as one of the top 3.
So here is what I made for my DT card.





This is a Z fold card I made.
I used the Sheena Douglas inking technique with Aqua Pens and glycerin for my background.
I used a paint brush with some of the same colour, and swiped it gently to create the clouds on the sun and sky.
This is the first time I have done this, and was so pleased with the result.
I had lots of disasters creating this firstly my Sun mask stuck to the scene, so I had to cover it with a punched out one, and lots of other bits I managed to make good.
The stamps used were a freebie from the Creative Stamping Magazine.
I stamped the Elephants with Black Archival Ink, and the Giraffes with Potting Soil Archival Ink, and then water coloured them with the Aqua Pens.
This didn't work well on the Elephants so I stamped them on some grey snippets of card.
The Giraffes were also stamped onto snippets of card then I fussy cut them out and applied them to the scene I created.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I really appreciate every visit, and wonderful comment.

WENDY'S F/BOOK SKETCH CHALLENGE CARD


Hi, and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Also welcome to anyone who just pops by to look at my work.


Here is a card I made for Wendy's sketch challenge on F/Book.





This is a 6"x6" size card.
I had been after the Appl Blossom card kit since seeing it advertised in my stamping magazine.
Hubby was having one of his no spend times so I was having to sit on my hands, and bite my nails as I really wanted this.
A good blog friend suggested buying in the supermarket with my shopping,
so he wouldn't know, but every time I looked there was none to be had.
Till last week I spotted one right at the back of a shelf.
So my card is my version of Wendy's sketch from the Apple Blossom kit.
Stamped the flowers with izink ink, and used a Crafters Companion glitter pen on them, and of course the butterflies are from Wendy our team leader.
The pale card is actually a very light peach card which looks cream in the photo, and is the other side of the orange card.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I am always so happy to read your lovely comments.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY

Yesterday, and today is much cooler in my part of Kent, so glad of that as I'm not good with too much heat it makes me so tired.

Today I have a Diorama card to show so I think this will come into the category for the Allsorts Challenge.



This card works out to be about 5.50"x 5.50" in size.
It was a kit from Hunkydory, and decoupaged under the acetate window.
I just added my tent style card to the back for somewhere to put your greetings.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.

CASTLE RUINS ON THE HILL


Hi, and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Also a welcome to anyone who just pops by to look at my work.

Now at the beginning of the year I promised myself I would use more of my stamps as I subscribe to the Creative Stamping Magazine, and I get lots of stamps with each issue.
Last month I received the stamps I used in this card, and thought they would be excellent to use for the Allsorts Challenge this week.
So I created this scene card, and am very happy with how it turned out.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
Now I hope this fits the theme as I thought the little deer looked like a baby one.
Made a mistake as I should have stamped the deer first, and then masked it off to create the scene so I went with fussy cutting it out and adding after.
I inked dusted my sky and grass, but wasn't happy with the grass result so I water coloured it with inks and water.
I also water coloured the deer, and the tree too.
Stamped some clouds in white, and the flock of birds with London Fog Ink.
I used the London Fog for the castle ruins too.
Grasses were stamped with lots of different colour greens.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I really appreciate each visit, and comment.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
