MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE


Hi , and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

May I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas, and a Happy, and Health New Year.

Thank you so much for all your visits, and wonderful comments that you all make on my work.

My bungalow is still  all upside down from my kitchen refurb, and my craft room is all in boxes waiting for the heating to be done in the New Year. 
I am getting lots of with drawl symptoms from not being able to craft.

Hubby has recently had another fit which has left him very unsteady again. 

I have had to have a smaller desk in my craft room to accommodate the new heater, and so I have changed computers with hubby, and lost my photo editing program of Picassa 3 as they no longer do that one,
So if anyone knows of a good, and easy one to use please let me know.


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

MOVING ALONG WITH THE TIMES DT.............ANYTHING CHRISTMAS


Hi, and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Well I'm nearly about 24 hours late posting my DT post as I couldn't get to my computer till tonight as my craft room was full of kitchen appliances.
It's time for another challenge over at

Anything Christmas on your entries.

Please pop along to the challenge to see my wonderful team mates creations.
So here is a card I made weeks ago especially for this challenge as I knew things would be hectic now.



This is a 7"x6" tent style card I made.
I used an embossing folder given to me by a friend with this lovely image of the Robin, and Holly on.
I used white Hunkydory plain card to emboss this on, and then I sprayed it with Crafters Companion Pearl Diamond Sparkle Spray to give it the pearlised sheen.
Then I added some waxes which I have had for many a year in various colours to the different areas, and then finally adding some red pearls for the berries, and a little black stone to the Robins eye.
The greeting sentiment was a buy from The Works.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I really appreciate every visit , and wonderful comment.

ANOTHER QUICK CHRISTMAS CARD


Hi, and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Firstly I must apologise for not visiting you, but on top of my Hubbies health problems the housing association in our sheltered housing scheme are modernising the kitchens, and the storage heating system.
Good news this maybe, but it's causing me such a lot of extra work at a time I don't need it.
They start work on the kitchen on the 26th of November so everything has been pulled out of cupboards, and such.
They are also fitting in new storage heaters, and I am getting one in my craft room which I haven't had before only an expensive one to run at the mo, this means a big move around of my craft room to accommodate the work.
I can't believe how much stuff I have thrown out so far. LOL.
Well I have been making cards for over 20 years now so you do accumulate quite a lot in that time.
Not sure when things will be back to normal, but you will know when I start posting more regularly.

In the meantime here is quick Christmas card I made before all the upheaval.


This is a DL size card.
The image if the door is a Hunkydory one just added some snow, and the die cut wreath from their Moonstones Die, and some gems to make it glitter.

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

A QUICK CHRISTMAS CARD


Hi, and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Hubby is still quite weak, but has lots more colour in his cheeks now.
He is on his last week of injections, and hopefully will improve from then on.
We may have to try,  and get some physio for his right arm and leg as they are still very weak, and he has to think carefully when using them as it doesn't seem to come naturally to him any more.
This week he has had a heart monitor on for a week too so they can look at what's going on there.
Things are very hectic with Hospital appointments, and as he always helped me so much around the house I am having to do it all which is quite exhausting.
As I don't sleep too well with my RLS I quite often can be crafting at night.
Here is a quick card I made.


This is a 4"x4" size card.
The paper with the forest scene is Hunkydory, and the fox is a freebie stamp which I stamped with Izink Ink, and water coloured with the the Izink Inks, and then added some black sharpie for the eyes, snout, and the edge of the paws.
I also added some white gel pen to his tail, ears, and his neck.
Then I created a shadow under his body with Memento London Fog Ink.
Forgot to say I fussy cut him out and adhered him to the scene.

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

CHRISTMAS CARD


Hi, and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Update on Hubby we have now found out by phoning the Doctor, and saying he was still very tired, and just walking to the bathroom was exhausting him, that he is Anaemic, very low in Vitamin B12, and Folic Acid.
This showed up on his bloods they took at the Hospital when in AE, but nothing was done about it.
Gives you real confidence in the health system doesn't it.
He is now having B12 injections twice a week, and taking iron tablets, and folic acid ones.
Hopefully we will see some improvement soon.

While looking after him I have sneaked a few odd hours in the evening when I am not exhausted myself to catch up on some Christmas cards.
So I was delighted to see the Allsorts Challenge this week was Christmas.
So here is one of my makes.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
The paper on the front is Hunkydory I just added some snow bought from Mrs Duck's craft shop which you will find a link to on the right side of my blog if you are interested.
The VW car with the Christmas Tree is a freebie stamp from Creative Stamping  Magazine.
I stamped it with my Misti, and Versafine Ink and then heat embossed it with black embossing powder.
Coloured it with Promarkers, and then cut it out and glued it to the scene.
I used Memento London Fog to create the tyre marks in the snow.
Just remembered I forgot the snow on the car, and tree. LOL.
The sentiment was also a freebie stamp, and the inside verse was one too.
The lovely stitched squares inside were a buy from my winnings at the Allsorts Challenge, and are from Swedish House Crafts. 

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I really appreciate your visits especially as I haven't had time to reciprocate.
Lots of crafty love.   JENNY.

THANK YOU CARD


Hi, and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Thank you so much for your well wishes on my hubbies health probs.
The outcome is that he did have another stroke back a month ago, and we weren't told till he visited the TIA Clinic on a follow up consultation last Tuesday he was then prescribed a fit medicine for the problem caused on the Saturday night when we spent so many hours at AE.
This caused him more symptoms just like he was having another stroke.
He currently can't use his right arm properly or his right leg and has to walk with a walking frame for small amounts as he gets very worn out.
So I won't be about much as I have look after him quite a lot.

In the meantime here is a Thank You card I made to say thank you to you all.
I won the stamps I used on a good blog friends posts where she often offers a card or stamps to her peeps that comment so if you are interested in visiting her, and I must say it is well worth a visit here is her blog.

RUDOLF DAYS CHALLENGE...........SEPTEMBER 2018


Hi, and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

My DH got rushed into hospital in the early hours of Sunday morning with a suspected stroke again.
We sat around AE for 12 hours waiting for decisions on whether to admit him.
We arrived at the hospital at 2.45 AM and were not seen by anybody till 4.00Am, and that was a nurse taking blood, and doing blood pressures.
Finally we saw a Doctor at 8.15AM, and then was asked to wait in the waiting room again. 
At 12.Pm after seeing 2 more Doctors we were told they would like to admit him, but didn't have a bed till 3.00PM.
I know the health service is stretched, and they do their best, but we sat on very hard seats  all that time, and my poor hubby was so uncomfortable, and feeling so poorly, and of course frightened.
After all he is 79 years of age too.
Home again now, but having trouble moving around, and doing things.
So I may not be around much for a while.

I made my card for the Rudolf Challenge last week, and as it's not my turn to DT I can join in the challenge.
As always it's anything goes as long as it's Christmas and
ONE ENTRY PER PERSON.
There is a lovely prize to won to.

  

This is a 6"x6" size card.
I started by stamping my background paper with a freebie stamp and Memento Northern Pine Ink.
Then I stamped my Red Cardinal in Versafine Ink and heat embossed it.
Coloured it in with Promarkers.
Then I added some glue in dots, and used faux snow for the falling snow.
Sentiments were freebie stamps also.

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

1st BIRTHDAY CARD


Hi, and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

I do hope you are all okay especially those who live north of the country as I know they have had the tail end of storm Ali.

Yesterday I spent the whole day crafting with a friend making things for the MacMillan coffee morning.

I was asked by a lady that works with my Daughter to make her a Birthday card for  her Great Grandson.
She wanted Swings, slides, and roundabouts on it.
So this is what I made her.



 This is a 7"x7" size card.
Now the lady in question didn't tell me she didn't have a husband.
So it came quickly back to change the saying to my instead.
The theme was to be anything to do with playgrounds.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I really appreciate every ones visit.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

CHRISTMAS CARD WITH A SCENE


Hi, and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Have been playing about with my freebie stamps today so I could enter the Allsorts Challenge this week.
So I thought I would make a Christmas card so my stash of Christmas cards gets larger.

Not sure about this scene, and I had great troubles with the snow stamp it wouldn't stay on the Misti or a stamping block in the end I just had to use my hand for the stamping.



This is a 7"x7" size card.
I started by masking off my moon and then inked my sky with DOI Broken China, and then added Faded Jeans DI.
I swooshed some Tumbled Glass DI across the moon.
Then I added my little house trees, and greetings.
I then cleaned the ink from the house with a wet paintbrush, and tissue, and added some white gel pen to the roof, and some grey Memento ink to the walls of the house.
I grounded my house, and my trees with the Grey Memento Ink on a brush with water.
Finally used an antistatic bag all over it and stamped my snow with Versamark embossing ink, and heat embossed it with Seafoam White embossing powder.
I did add a Spectrum Clear Glitter pen to the snow, but I'm not sure if it will show on camera.
The inside was stamped with more of the freebie stamps.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I really appreciate every visit, and wonderful comment.

DARNELLS TWOFER CHALLENGE NO 9.........LEAVES


Hi, and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Darnell has been running a
 Twofer Challenge every month, and I did join in earlier in the year, but couldn't manage for a quite a few months, so I thought it was about time I tried to join in.
So I made time to make my Twofer cards this morning.


The challenge is to make 2 cards using the same stamps or die cuts for different occasions, and leaves is the challenge this month.
Here is my effort one is a 7"x7" in size, and the other is 5"x7" in size.
I started by spraying snippets of white card with Tattered Angels Mica sprays in Orange, Red, Yellow, and a Brown which are colours you find in Autumn Leaves.
When dry I stamped my leaves that came as a freebie last month with the Creative Stamping Magazine with Versafine Ink in my Misti.
The sentiments were also from the same set.
Then I set about designing my cards.
Sorry the photos don't show up the lovely mica look to the sprayed card it seems to have come out looking very dull.



Thank you for your visit, and precious time.
I really appreciate each visit and the wonderful comments.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

HUNKYDORY CARD KIT


Hi, and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

I do hope you all having a fab weekend, and I hope our US blog friends are all safe from the weather they are having in some parts.

Today I have a card I made from a Hunkydory kit that came with one of the kits I bought a while ago.
Now there were 6 of these in the kit, and after making the first one I decided to make the rest in case I forgot how to make them later on.
Not sure what design they are, but they fold flat for postage, and are A5 in size. 


I just added some extra butterflies, and pearls so all in all a quick card to make, but effective looking.
I think I made the 6 in just under an hour.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I really appreciate every visit, and comment.

Hi, and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Thank you so much for all your good wishes on my DH health.

Was asked by my Daughter to make this card for the lady who works on the reception desk where she works as she was retiring.
She wanted and A4 size card so everyone who works there could sign it.
So this is what I made for her.



As I said this is an A4 size card made from A3 white card that was 300 GSM  in weight, and  it's from the Hunkydory A3 Pads of card which is wonderful to work with, and such good value as it's only £14.99 for the pad of 50 sheets.
Used Hunkydory card with a sequin finish for the main part. 
The flowers and lace are from
 The Works, and the Corner Die was a freebie in a craft magazine a few years back.
The image is Hunkydory also, and the inside is Hunkydory paper, and I used picture from their little books to make the A5 cards inside for people to write their wishes on.

I really appreciate all your wonderful comments.

WEDDING CARD AND BOX.........AND FINAL BLOG ANNIVERSARY PRIZE.


Hi, and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Sorry I couldn't post this Monday or Tuesday as my DH hasn't been too well, and we have had to visit the hospital twice over the last few days.
A few more tests, and maybe another operation if the outcome is the same as it was a few years ago.

Well onto to my final winner of my Blog Anniversary prize of £15, and Tad-Dah the name drawn out is
 Kate of Love Socks and Cards Blog.
Kate please email me with your preference of where you would like me to buy your voucher.

Now onto a wedding card and box made for my Sister, and Niece to give to my Great Nephew on his wedding.




This is a 8"x8" size card, and box I made to fit it.
I purchased the lovely embossed pearlised card to make this.
Now the bridesmaids were wearing Dark Coral dresses so this set me a task as I couldn't find card in that colour.
I tried out a few different inks to get the right colour I wanted, and finally used Worn Lipstick, and Fossilised Amber DOI to get this result, and go with the ribbon used on the box.
Decided to make a shaker design for a change.
Flowers are from WOC and inked with the same inks.
This is the one my Sister gave, and in a few weeks you will see the one my Niece gave them.

Thank you for your visit, and precious time,
It's always very much appreciated.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

RUDOLF DAYS CHALLENGE ....AUGUST 2018 DT CREATION.


Hi, and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Sorry I haven't been about again lots going on in my life at the mo, and blogging is having to take a back seat for a while.

It's the 25th of the month again so soon, and time for the 
RUDOLF DAYS CHALLENGE
The challenge runs from the 25th of the month to the end of the month, and as always it's anything goes as long as it's Christmas.
ONE ENTRY PER PERSON.
There is always a lovely prize on offer to the winner donated by the very generous Mo.  
It's my turn for a DT creation this month so this is what I decided to make a word book of sorts.

  

I made this totally by hand cutting this out.
I had big No templates to use for the numbers.
The papers used were from a cheap Christmas paper pad from the works last year.
I made a slight mistake when cutting the books pages as I cut them at 5" high, and in hindsight they should have been 5.25" instead so the numbers fitted better.

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

It's time for another fortnights challenge over at 


Our lovely Hazel is your host for this challenge, and she would like to see Texture on your entries please.

So I thought for this challenge it would be good to use it.


I painted the canvas with black gesso firstly, and then glued lots of different texture pieces to it.
There is a mixture of cardboard, leaves,crochet pieces, braid,flowers, stones, and wood on this, and then I painted it all with Starlight Paints, and then I used some bronze wax on top of it.

I will be doing similar draws with different vouchers throughout the remaining month.
So Kath if you let me know where you would like me to buy your voucher.

In the meantime here is a card I made for my Son who is a big fan of biscuits.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
The biscuit die is a Tattered Lace one that comes with a charisma download.
I printed it off on photographic paper.
I think the biscuits look quite real don't you.
Die cut the Happy Birthday 4 times, and glued together to make it stand out more.
The son letters were snippets of letters cut out previously for other projects.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I always appreciate your visit and wonderful comments.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
