MOVING ALONG WITH THE TIMES DT...........HAVE A HEART


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

It's time for the start of another challenge over at 
Donna is our lovely host for this fortnight, and she would like to see a heart on your creations please.
The challenge runs from today till the 30th of January and closes at 6PM GMT.
Please go over to the challenge blog to see my lovely Team B friends, and there wonderful creations, and  we also have the lovely Christine on Team B now as she has changed teams.
Christine ,and I started our blogs the same week encouraged by a good blog friend of ours that no longer blogs.

So here is my card which I made for my Son's Anniversary in March.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
The card stock used is Hunkydory, and also the paper inside.
This card has a lovely gloss to it.
I die cut the heart aperture, and then added a die cut that looks like lace all around the inside of the Heart, this is a straight die cut, which I cut to fit the Heart.
The flower I made out of the same card and inked the edges.
The butterfly was up-cycled from a card given to me.

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

40th BIRTHDAY CARD


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

I am trying to get back to blogging ,and crafting, but with all my craft items in boxes waiting for my new heaters to be installed it's quite difficult.
I have managed to make a few Birthday cards for my family who have Birthdays this month with Hunkydory items that I could find.
Also a card for my DT on Thursday, but guess what I can't find the camera lead to the computer, after looking in I don't know how many boxes.
I remember putting it away safely, but where............... LOL.

I noticed the Allsorts challenge this week is Milestones with Numbers so as I have a card I made for my Daughter's work colleague back last year, and haven't shown yet I thought I would join in.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
The card stock, images, and the papers used are Hunkydory.
I put lots of post cards in the pockets inside for their individual greetings, and signing.
Cut out lots of die cuts of Happy Birthday, and 40th, and glued them together to make them stand out more.
The lovely little Butterflies are made by Wendy L our Team Leader at Moving Along With The Times challenge bog.

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

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

SORRY YOU ARE LEAVING CARD AND BOX


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

I would like to welcome my latest followers that have pressed the button to join my blog, and thank you for following me.
I'm not sure if you have a blog, so if you have let me know so I can follow you too.

I have had to go back to my old computer as I could not get on with the any of the other photo editing programs.
So it's back with Picassa 3, and I can't understand why Google has done away with it as it was so easy to use, all the others are so complicated compared to that one as I'm not good with measurements.
Also some had very small writing which I couldn't enlarge, and I couldn't read the program with my eye problems.

Back in September my daughter asked me to make a leaving card, and box for a colleague that was leaving.
So here is what I came up with as the person loves shoes, and handbags.




This is a 8"x8" size card, and box I made to match.
They wanted lots of little cards inside to write their individual greetings on, so the cards inside are 4"x4" in size.
The boots, and handbag are a
 CraftsUPrint download.
Decoupaged the the handbag, boots and the flowers.

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

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE








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

Thank you so much for your visits throughout 2018 especially this last couple of months when I couldn't visit you.
I really appreciate your support, and your lovely comments, and also get well wishes for hubby.

The kitchen is all finished now, and I have managed to just about get everything back into cupboards.
My craft room is still in boxes waiting for the New Heater to be fitted in the New Year.
I have had to get rid of my old very big desk, and buy a smaller one to accommodate the new heater.
It has been a good thing as my craft room needed a over haul, and tidy up, but it's been a lot of hard work, and being ruthless with crafting items I have had for many moons.
I can't wait to get crafting again, and blogging as it seems so long now since I have had chance to visit you all.
Mind you when it's all back together again do you think I will find anything???????

So I digress my main aim today is to wish everyone  A very Happy, Health, New Year.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE


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

May I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas, and a Happy, and Health New Year.

Thank you so much for all your visits, and wonderful comments that you all make on my work.

My bungalow is still  all upside down from my kitchen refurb, and my craft room is all in boxes waiting for the heating to be done in the New Year. 
I am getting lots of with drawl symptoms from not being able to craft.

Hubby has recently had another fit which has left him very unsteady again. 

I have had to have a smaller desk in my craft room to accommodate the new heater, and so I have changed computers with hubby, and lost my photo editing program of Picassa 3 as they no longer do that one,
So if anyone knows of a good, and easy one to use please let me know.


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

MOVING ALONG WITH THE TIMES DT................ANYTHING BUT A CARD


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

We have a new challenge that starts today, for over the Christmas period at

MOVING ALONG WITH THE TIMES 

The challenge involves both Teams A and B this time around, and the lovely Wendy our Team Leader is your host.
Wendy's theme is 
ANYTHING BUT A CARD
The challenge runs from today till Wednesday 2nd of January 2019 and closes at 6PM.
There is also a prize from

  
and some little prizes donated by some of our lovely DT Team too.
So it could be well worth entering if you have the time as I know we are all very busy this time of year. 

Here is what I made for my DT a wreath.

  
I got the idea for this last year from watching One Happy Bird on U Tube.
I just made mine larger to go on a door by cutting out cardboard rings, and then hot gluing  the bead inter twined pipe cleaners, and then I added a felt Christmas Tree decoration to the centre, and some lovely Ribbon.

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