I also lost my first Husband to the big C when I was quite young. I have 3 children and 3 stepchildren. 12 Grandchildren and 4 Great Granddaughters and 2 Great Grandsons. I have been card making for about 25 years. I have made things all my life as my Mum and Grand Mother taught me lots of hobbies.

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

Well the bathroom was finished  this afternoon.
Am I glad that's all over, and now we have a lovely wet room instead.
Now starts the clean up from all the dust.
I had been doing some feather dusting as it was going along, but the fitter said the dust will settle on things for a few more days before it finally gets back to normal.

I also had a Easter coffee morning to do this morning over at the flats that are in our scheme.
That was a great success.

My card today is one I made yesterday for the Allsorts Challenge.
 Quite pleased with how this turned out.


This is a 8"x6" size tent card.
I used the TL Shabby Offset Rectangles Die.
Cut out the outside frame, and then sprayed it with aerosol glue and put Cosmic Shimmer Diamond Snow Glitter on it.
The I cut out the inner frame from white card and coloured it with Colour Cloud Rose Blush Ink making it darker on the bottom and lighter on the top for shading.
I added my jewels to the outside.
Coloured my ribbon with Rose Blush also.

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

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

I like the colour and design of this very pretty card. Very much my thing. Glad your pleased with your bathroom refit. The dust does get everywhere. We are just on the last bit of ours now. The planner came yesterday to measure up for the replacement door for the built in cupboard they had yo partially dismantle in order yo take the old bath out and put the new one in and shower screen. It is only a matter of waiting for the door to be made and then an afternoons job to come out and fit it then the job is do. Phew!! Hugs Mrs A.
