ANNIVERSARY CARD


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

As it's been so darn hot I am giving housework the heave ho for now and doing more posting for a change.

It is cooler today but it's still so hot in the house after the last few days and it plays my Arthritis up so much.

Today I have an Anniversary card I made for my stepson and his wife back in April.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
The papers are Stamperia 
and the heart dies are Tattered Lace.
Flowers and Leaves are Carnation Crafts Dies.
Pearly centres of flowers from HobbyHouse.
 
I could not put Happy Anniversay on this as my DIL had just lost her Mother hence no verse either. 

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

RUDOLF DAYS CHALLENGE ..JUNE 2020


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

Well it's the 25th of the month already and time for the Rudolf Days Challenge.
This month is not my DT turn so I can enter the challenge.
The challenge runs form today till the end of the month.
I first joined this challenge I think it was about 5 years ago when Sarn used to run it, or it could be longer than that.
In all that time I never won the challenge till earlier this year.
My prize from the lovely Maureen was a wonderful stamp from Woodware so I made these cards from it.


The inside.
 The card that was not heat embossed.

These are 5"x7" size cards.
The first I heat embossed and the second I didn't. 
I coloured the holly leaves with distress ink and added some red gems for the berries.
I then splattered red and green distress inks mixed with water all over the card fronts, inside, and envelopes. 

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

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

GRANDSON'S 16th BIRTHDAY CARD AND POP UP BOX


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

Hope you all had a good weekend.
Mine was the same as it has been for the last 11 weeks and I suppose it may be the same for most of you too.

Today I have a Card and Pop up Box I made my Grandson's 16th Birthday in March before all the lockdown.
He supports Arsenal Football team so this is what I made him.
He is also a Goal Keeper with his team he plays for, and he also passed his exams to Referee Youngters Matches, which used to earn him a little money.




Card is 8"x8" in size.
Made the background paper with my 3D CD and printed it on photo paper.
Added a big 16 made with tmeplates and cut by hand.
In- corporated a pair of Goalie Gloves and a Football.
The pop up box I used more of the items left over from the card and addded his age and some stars.

SON'S BIRTHDAY CARD.


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

How are all of you managing with the new measures that we have been given.
I am really scared to venture out after all it's still out there and I am 71 years of age so have been self isolating for 10 weeks now and I am into my 11th this week.
Luckily I have always been okay with my own company.

Finding it very hard to get into crafting though as I think my mojo is in sleep mode.

I visited a friends blog recently and she had a lovely card on her blog which I asked if I could case for my Son's Birthday, as I was struggling what to put on his card this year. 
Brenda used stamps which I didn't have so improvised.
You can find her lovely card
HERE 
Please pop over and give her some lovely comments and follow if you are not already following her.

So onto my version of Brenda's card.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
I inked some watercolour card stock with a mixture of DIs
to give a look of a night sky
 hopefully it looks like it.
I add some flicks of glitter pen mixed with water to look like small stars.
Then also added some blobs for bigger stars.
 I used a round punch for the moon and coloured it with different  inks  and finally added some white pearlised ink round the edges and accross the moon to give it some atmosphere.

I really appreciate every wonderful comment you make.
