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

I was lucky enough to win the 
 again recently, and was asked by Mrs A to be the Guest Designer for this challenge.
Out of the letters of the alphabet left I chose the letter O and Mrs A gave me the colour Olive, and Oval to design a creation.
So here is what I came up with a rocker card, and a oval aperture card.

Now this colour set me a great challenge as I didn't have any Olive colour card, so I made up the colour with Crafters Companion Aqua Water Colour Pen, and sprayed it with Creative Expressions Phill Martin's Old Gold Cosmic Shimmer Mister. 
The oval butterfly card, and the tag  came in my lovely goody bag provided by Mrs A for my recent win.
The flowers, and the foliage are a Tattered Lace Die that came free with a purchase.
The second card I made with some lovely die cuts a dear blog friend sent me.

Thank you so much for your visit, and time.
I do hope you can join us in this wonderful challenge.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Your cards really are lovely and now I can see the beautiful inside of the second card. I feel very honoured to have you back again as my Guest Desinger. Thakyou so much. Hugs Mrs A.
p.s. My internet problems are not over yet as the router fell over during the night and had to be rebooted again this morning so don't know how long I will stay on for this time.
It took Talk Talk 5 months to fix the connection last time.

These are fantastic Jenny, love the rocker card and how you have added the pretty lace and the oval frame on the second is really eye-catching. The olive green looks great too, sophisticated somehow xx

Hi Jenny, thanks for your so lovely comment on my blog, I'm on holiday in Cornwall at the moment, not supposed to be blogging but it's tipping it down at the moment, it has been all I'm passing the time! Have had a look round your lovely blog, you are one talented lady, there are loads of fabulous cards here! Am now following you, we're practically neighbours and it'd be rude not too :)

Patricia said...

Jenny thank you for your very kind offer. . Windows 10 downloaded itself a couple of weeks ago and I am floundering. Till then I managed the links fine. I have managed to get to my Blog which is a blessing.

Congratulations on your big win at Butterfly, and being asked to set the theme for a challenge. I enjoyed reading your creation of the olive (it's so very beautiful too!). Very clever of you. The oval easel card is outstanding, as is the way you've done all the elements. So very pretty. And #2 - just bloomin' gorgeous, Jenny. Will have to see if I've any Olive and can join in this time. Both are just beautiful looks, done with your usual attention to all the wonderful details. TFS & Hugs.

Erika said...
