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.

MOVING ALONG WITH THE TIMES......DT TEXTURE


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

It's time for another fortnights challenge over at 


Our lovely Hazel is your host for this challenge, and she would like to see Texture on your entries please.
The challenge runs till Wednesday the 29th of August and closes at 6PM.
We love to see your lovely, and varied entries, even though there is no prize only a chance to be in the top 3.
So here is what I made for my DT.
I bought a blank canvas ages ago to create something, and never got around to using it.
So I thought for this challenge it would be good to use it.


I painted the canvas with black gesso firstly, and then glued lots of different texture pieces to it.
There is a mixture of cardboard, leaves,crochet pieces, braid,flowers, stones, and wood on this, and then I painted it all with Starlight Paints, and then I used some bronze wax on top of it.

If you go over the the challenge blog you will see my fellow  B Team  very wonderful DT creations.

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

MY BLOGS 6TH ANNIVERSARY THIS MONTH


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

It's my blogs 6th Anniversary this month, and I can hardly believe how quick that time has gone.
To think I set up my blog amazes me as when I did it I was fairly new to computers.
So to celebrate my blog anniversary I have put lots of my followers who regularly visit, and make comments in a hat, and hubby drew a name out for me the name drawn out was Kath from the blog Plain and Simple.
So I would like to buy her a voucher of £25 where ever she would like me to buy it for her.
I will be doing similar draws with different vouchers throughout the remaining month.
So Kath if you let me know where you would like me to buy your voucher.

In the meantime here is a card I made for my Son who is a big fan of biscuits.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
The biscuit die is a Tattered Lace one that comes with a charisma download.
I printed it off on photographic paper.
I think the biscuits look quite real don't you.
Die cut the Happy Birthday 4 times, and glued together to make it stand out more.
The son letters were snippets of letters cut out previously for other projects.

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

QUICK CARD MAKE.


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. 

Internet behaving so far fingers crossed.
Today I have a quick card I made a while ago and haven't shown yet.



This is a 6"x6" size card.
The images are from a MCS CD.
All the work is done for you all you do is print it off and attach it to your colour matting.
Just added some pearls to the lace that is in the design, and decoupaged the flowers.
Luckily I had just the right colour card to use as my matting as I think it goes so well with it.

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

RUDOLF DAYS.......FOR JULY IN AUGUST.


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.

Still having lots of Internet drop outs so I haven't been posting just in case I can't get to comment, but as the Rudolf Days Challenge is ending tonight, and touch wood the Internet is working at the moment so here is my entry into the challenge as July was not my month for my DT card.
The Challenge is running late this time because Maureen was on holiday.

So here is what I made a quick card made with lots of Snippets.



This card is a 6"x4" tent style card.
I recently made wedding cards, and boxes for my sister, and had lots of the pearlised snippets left over to make this card.
The image is from the Internet.
Edged the image with a blue sharpie pen.
Added some Crafters Companion Clear Sparkle Pen to the trees and snow, but it doesn't show in the photo.
Die cut a small poinsettia in the white pearlised card, and some snowflakes.
A quick and simple card to make.

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