MALE BIRTHDAY CARD


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

I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend and you are all keeping well.

Today I have a Male Birthday Card for you.
I made this for my my stepdaughter's husband who has his own building business.



This is a 8"x8" size card I made from 2 A4 sheets of craft card as I had some craft envelopes to use up..
The work tools images are Hunkydory from one of their books of images.
They are made from quite thin paper so I glued then to card and edged them with a brown promarker.
All in all a quick card to make only one die cut involved the Happy Birthday.

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

60th BIRTHDAY CARD, BOX, AND TISSUE BOX


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

How are you coping with the heat. 
  I am not very good withthe hot weather it drains me of energy.
Luckily it's a lot cooler today at last.
So I thought I would post a card I made recently for one of my Daughter's bosses.

  






The card is an 8"x8" size, and a box I made to fit it.
I also made a Tissue box for her and was asked to put Daffodils on both as the lady in question was born in Wales like myself.
She was very pleased with everything.
The paper used is  Hunkydory Garden Treasures luckily I bought 2 of that collection.
The die used around the aperture is a Tattered Lace one, the Happy Birthday die is a Paper Boutique one.
The Daffs, Butterflies and Foilage are Cranation Crafts dies.
Numbers dies are cheap from Amazon.
The little cards inside were made with a small daffs die that I was lent, I believe it was a Joanna Sheen die that came with one her magazines a few years ago, and I coloured them with promarkers.
Then I punched out 2" circles with snippets of paper left over from the tissue box, and cut them in half to make a bowl for the Daffs to sit in.
Sorry I forgot to photograph that.

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.

MOVING ALONG WITH THE TIMES ..CHALLENGE NO 121...ELEPHANTS


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

As it's the 1st of the month it's time for another new challenge over at 
MOVING ALONG WITH THE TIMES 
The challenge runs till the end of August, and June has chosen the theme for this challenge, and she would like to see Elephants on your creations. 
So here is my Easel Card I made.



This card is a 7"x7" size card made into an Easel Card.
I used Carnation Crafts pale Lilac card and downloaded papers in pink.
The image is a Hunkydory one and is so cute.
I decoupaged the Baby Elephant and the flowers cut form another image.
The Happy Birthday die is Paper Boutique one.
The dies around the edges are Tattered Lace from their Junk Journals dies.
I always back my image with the card being used to finish off the  design and make it look good from the back also.
I cover the inside top of the easel as well so everything matches.

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