IN THE PINK CARD


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

Also a warm welcome to anyone who just pops by to look at my work.

Couldn't sleep again last night so I thought I would make a card for the Allsorts Challenge in the pink.
I am quite pleased with how this one turned out. 



This is a 7"x7" size card.
The card stock is Hunkydory and the lovely rose paper is from a MCS CD.
The sentiment and the oval layer are very old Hunkydory images from before they started making Adorable Scorable card stock.
Some of the flowers are from
   WOC and the roses were given to me, and leaves are from Hobbycraft.
Just used some glamour dust to make them sparkle.

Thank you so much for your visit, and your precious time as I know time is precious to all of us, and I really love reading your comments.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

SORRY YOUR LEAVING CARD


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

Also a big welcome to anyone who just pops by to look at my work.

For those of you interested if you remember I made a girl, and boy book card for my sister to give her Granddaughter who didn't want to know the sex of the baby before it was born.
She had a baby boy on Friday.

Right onto today most weeks I try, and join in Wendy's sketch challenge on F/Book.
This week she has a slightly different challenge to use 3 or more shapes on your entry not counting the base card.
You will find the details HERE.
So here is my entry for this week.



This is a 8"x8" size card I made for my Daughter to take to work for everyone to sign the post cards inside.
The card is and image are Hunkydory.
The postcards were printed off a MCS CD .
Now I had a happy accident with this as my printer was playing up for the sentiment and it came out a couple of colours and I thought it looked okay like that. 

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

WEDDING CARD AND BOX


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

Also a warm welcome to anyone who just pops in to look at my work.

Phew I managed to finish the both Wedding cards and boxes yesterday.
Here is one of them now I have to pack them up and post them to Wales. 




This is a 8" x8" size card and box I made to fit it.
The bridesmaids are wearing blush dusky pink so I tried to make the colour by using pro-markers to colour my matt and layer part. 
The lovely lace is form the Works which my sister sent me.
Flowers from WOC.

Now some of you may remember my Son and his Wife mating their dog to sell puppies to help put my Granddaughter through UNI.
Here are some photos of the first ones.



This last picture is of my Son with them oh they are so cute I couldn't part with them if they were mine.

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

CHRISTMAS MILK CARTON


Hi and a big warm welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.

Sorry I have been missing for a while again, my Daughter has been on holiday so I had a girly week with my Daughter and Granddaughter, and it was lovely to get out of the house for a change pity the weather was awful last week.

I will be missing in action for a while also as I have lots of family Birthdays this month, and 2 wedding cards and boxes to make for my sister who lives in Wales, and as usual I have left it to the last minute to make them.

So today I have a Christmas Milk Carton  I made to join in the Allsorts Challenge this week as I do love to join this wonderful challenge, and I have been very lucky, and won quite a few times, and also been lucky enough to be chosen in the top 5 a few times too.




This was made from 2 sheets of 12"x12" card from the works paper pad which is really more like card than paper.
The little holographic angels my sister gave me.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I will try and get around to visiting soon.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

MOVING ALONG WITH THE TIMES DT.............FANTASY


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

Also a warm welcome to anyone who just pops by to look at my work.

Today is the start of a new challenge over at 
It is the turn of the B Team and the challenge theme is Fantasy chosen by our lovely June.
The challenge runs from 26th April to Wednesday 9th of May, and close at 6PM.
No prizes as we are not sponsored, but you could be one of the top 3 chosen.
On looking at what my teamies had already chosen to do I decided to make a tissue box.



The base of the box is a snippet of white box board I make my boxes for my cards with.
I just sprayed it with a mixture of Tattered Angels mica sprays to get my colour.
The images are a download from C&C, and I printed them on photographic paper.
My Daughter  loved this so I gave it to her.

Please pop along to the challenge blog to see what my lovely team mates created, and try and enter as we love to see your wonderful work.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
