IN THE PINK CARD


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

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

Couldn't sleep again last night so I thought I would make a card for the Allsorts Challenge in the pink.
I am quite pleased with how this one turned out. 



This is a 7"x7" size card.
The card stock is Hunkydory and the lovely rose paper is from a MCS CD.
The sentiment and the oval layer are very old Hunkydory images from before they started making Adorable Scorable card stock.
Some of the flowers are from
   WOC and the roses were given to me, and leaves are from Hobbycraft.
Just used some glamour dust to make them sparkle.

Thank you so much for your visit, and your precious time as I know time is precious to all of us, and I really love reading your comments.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

SORRY YOUR LEAVING CARD


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

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

For those of you interested if you remember I made a girl, and boy book card for my sister to give her Granddaughter who didn't want to know the sex of the baby before it was born.
She had a baby boy on Friday.

Right onto today most weeks I try, and join in Wendy's sketch challenge on F/Book.
This week she has a slightly different challenge to use 3 or more shapes on your entry not counting the base card.
You will find the details HERE.
So here is my entry for this week.



This is a 8"x8" size card I made for my Daughter to take to work for everyone to sign the post cards inside.
The card is and image are Hunkydory.
The postcards were printed off a MCS CD .
Now I had a happy accident with this as my printer was playing up for the sentiment and it came out a couple of colours and I thought it looked okay like that. 

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

THINKING OF YOU AND SYMPATHY CARD


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

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

Now those of you who have known me for a while might remember I used to sing in a group that entertained people in nursing homes.
Sadly that all fell through when our keyboard player passed away 2 years ago.
Well last week I went to a funeral of another of our lovely singers.
The instructions from the family were to wear something sparkly  not dark as she loved her bling and was such an outgoing person, and could sing beautifully.
So this is the card I made for the family with that in mind.



This is a 6"x6" size card.
The papers are Hunkydory, and the bling butterfly image was from a freebie pad you got with the stones to make it.
Think I made a Boo, Boo, with the trail from the butterfly. 
I think it should have larger stones to smaller ones.

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

MOVING ALONG WITH THE TIMES DT..............FOOD AND OR DRINK


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

Also a big warm welcome to anyone that just pops in to look at what I have created.

Today starts a new challenge over at
It's the B Teams turn and the theme  chosen by our lovely Sue is Food and Drink.
 It is quite sad as she has had to stand down from our DT because of family reasons, and shall be missed by all of us as she was on the DT the longest.

I made my first card a few weeks ago for the challenge, and my Grandson's 14th Birthday.
The second I made quickly last night as we have a few DT members who are ill or can't manage to make something because of commitments.





The first card was made with a digi image, and is coloured with Promarkers.
I added glossy accents to their eyes and the tomato sauce.
The second card I made with Hunkydory card stock and images. 

Please pop over to the challenge blog to see my other teamies wonderful creations, and try and enter if you can.

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