Hi and welcome to all my craft loving friends, and visitors.

Sorry I have been missing again, but life's  little problems have got in the way of me blogging again, and I don't want to boor you with details.

Couldn't sleep last night again so I made this quick card for the Allsorts Challenge. 

This is a 6"x6" size card.
I began by ink dusting some glossy card with Memento Inks in Rose Bud,Danube Blue, and Dandelion.
Then I stamped the Inkylicious picture perfect stamp in Memento Tuxedo Black.
I stamped around the background with Memento Bamboo Leaves Ink and a Inkylicious Delicate Vines stamp. 

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

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Life has a way of letting us all know just who is ultimately in charge of us, doesn't it? Hope things get smoother for you real soon. I love your creativity when you can't sleep! Very industrious. The focal scene is quite soothing and calming, and I like the pairing with the green vines floating on the mat. Lovely black framing to set it all off. Well done indeed. TFS & Happy wkend. Hugs

Beautiful card. You've been much more productive than I am when I can't sleep and just watch terrible telly that is on in the early hours. Sorry that life is difficult for you at the moment. Sending hugs x

A beautiful card Jenny. I love your inked background colours and the delicate vines stamp makes a wonderful background.

Sarah said...

What a lovely card Jenny, and all inked by your fair hand too!! The sky behind the scene is wonderful and I love your hand stamped background. I do hope the problems are nothing serious Jenny. I have been short on time too, as work has been crazy bonkers and I am afraid I just can't say my own detriment!! xx
