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 5 Great Granddaughters and 3 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. I have made my own clothes, knitted garments, hand embroidered items of clothing, and crocheted items too. I love to bake my own cakes as well.

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

Sorry I haven't been about much this week, but a neighbour had a fall, and as he is carer to his wife I have been helping as much as I can.

So today I did manage to have a play with some crafty items for a couple of challenges.
The Frilly and Funkie Challenge has a theme  sound of music, or maybe a fave song so this one of my DH fave songs as it has a special meaning to him.

I made an easel card , and the base I hope, I made look like a record.
My lovely pin and ribbon flower were made by Wendy our Team leader over at the MAWTT.
The lovely pin has a musical note dangling from it.
So thank you very much Wendy for these wonderful items.
Butterfly came off and old hair clip.
I forgot I have used  quite a few
 snippets for my die cuts so I will join my friends in the snippets playground with this.

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.

Me too Jenny, I thought you had gone and used Hubby's one and only treasured recording. This is a grand card. I love all the layers and embellishments. I still have your dragonfly card out on the side table in the dinning room! Thankyou for fluttering into my butterfly garden for this challenge. Hugs Mrs A.

What a great choice of song, not really my Sisters favourite as she is called Eileen and we used to use this song to annoy her, if she was messing about, we used to break into "come on Eileen"
Fantastic make, great idea with the easel card and some super images. Love it.
