GRANDDAUGHTER'S BIRTHDAY CARD


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

I do hope everyone has had a good week, but the weather here in Kent as been hot one min, and quite cold the next.

It was my Granddaughter's 20th Birthday recently, and she is in Southampton Uni so this is the card I made and sent her.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
The card stock is Hunkydory.
The image is from one of their first little books.
I found the sentiments in one of my craft drawers when re-vamping my craft room at the beginning of the year which were bought many moons ago.
Corners were cut from the Tattered Lace Circle Trellis Die.

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

EXPANDABLE BOOKLET CARD


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

It's my Son's 50th Birthday today I wanted to do a memory album, but with the circumstances I ran out of time to make one.
Will try to do one a little later in the year.
So I made an expandable booklet card with some of his fave sports inside.
The front is a bit CAS for me, and my style.




This is 5"x5" in size.
The booklet is made from 3 of the 5" square cards.
I bought the gold rainbow mirri card at the Kent Craft Show recently teamed it up with Linda Chapman's black card.
The sporting pictures inside are Hunkydory Top Deckers.
My Son had a B/Cue recently to celebrate his Birthday as they were going away on his Birthday.
On the table were the confetti with the words Happy Birthday and 50 on so pinched a few to put on the inside of his card.

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

THANK YOU CARD AND TISSUE BOX


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

Thank you so much for all your caring wishes I cannot tell how much I appreciate your lovely comments.

Today I have a Thank You card and Tissue Box I made for the Funeral Directors to show my families appreciation on their wonderful caring service.





The card is 6"x6" in size.
I used a  Paper Boutique Die to make this which I bought ages ago when it was half price.
I used Hunkydory Card stock.
The paper on the tissue box is Paper Boutique too, and the Flower and Butterfly die cuts are Tattered Lace.
I cut the flower out in white and then coloured it with Izink Inks. 

Lots of Snippets used on the card and the tissue box for the die cuts so I will be joining my friends at the Pixies Snippets Playground with my card.

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

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

MOVING ALONG WITH THE TIMES..DT...........BLACK AND WHITE ONLY


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

Today starts a new challenge over at
It's the B Teams turn again and the lovely Debbie is your host for this fortnights challenge, and she would like to see just Black and White on your creations please.
The challenge runs from today till Wednesday the 22nd of May, and closes at 6PM GMT.
Please visit the challenge blog to see the lovely DT creations.

Here is what I made this time around.



This is a 6"x6" size card.
The lovely black and white butterfly card was from very old crafting stash which must be at least 10years old if not more.
It came in all sorts of colours too which I have yet to use.
The lovely verse was included and the other items too.
I'm sure I purchased it from C&C.
I am finding it hard to find my mojo and concentrate on crafting, and also May has a lot of family Birthdays, and I have a wedding card and box to make for the end of the month.
So hopefully I will get around to visiting you all soon.

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