Hi and welcome to my blog dear craft friends
and visitors.
We are mid week already my how time does fly.

I do hope you are feeling fine and bushy tailed
so to speak.
For those who are not feeling so good here's 
hoping you will soon be feeling better.

Thank you for all your lovely comments on my
Origami Box.
When I looked on Patricia Summerhouses blog
at hers I thought mine didn't look so good.
Will try and improve the next time I make one.

Now I have a card I made for the Pink Gem 
challenge, this week.


Now the inside.

Sorry about the wonky picture I seem to be 
holding my camera wonky these days, well
that's me all over. lol.
The card is an 8x8 size.
I used a Pink Gem digi image Josh and Puppy.
Coloured in with Promarkers.
I think I should mention this image doesn't 
come with a spotty dog it's my idea to make 
him spotty.
I coloured this in quite a while ago and it's 
been sitting waiting patiently to be
The papers are from a book of papers I bought
at the supermarket.
Embellishments from my stash.
No die s were harmed  in the making of this 
card. lol.

Thank you again for your visit.
Keep crafting.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following

Morning Jenny, Firstly, your origami box was beautiful, don't put yourself down (this coming from the person who always does the same, but do as I say, not as I do ha ha). Believe me it was gorgeous, as was Patricia's.
Secondly, loving your card with Josh and Puppy, loving the colours, loving the image, loving the inside, any boy (or big boy) would love to receive this creation.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
