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

Sorry I have a 2nd post today as I wanted to join the Allsorts Challenge this week.

Now when you see what I have been working on you will understand why the top of my spine was playing up.
There was lot of crafting involved in this I can tell you, and I made some silly mistakes too that took me a while to rectify, but now I am so happy with the results.
I have used my my fave Graphic 45 papers for this as I do love their designs.

I saw a Kathy Clement's U Tube video and I do love her work so this is my version of her work. 
HERE is a link to the U Tube video.

The base of this card is a 8"x8" size.
Now I made a mistake and mine wouldn't stand up so I put a tent style back on mine.
The papers are all Graphic 45.
The images are from the Hunkydory USB, and the post card is a MCS image.

Thank you so much for your visit, and all the wonderful comments you make it really thrills me to know you like my work.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Hi jenny. What an amazing piece of work. Love those papers too!. No wonder your back was hurting after all that lol. If you're like me I won't give up until it's finished. Thanks for your lovely comments, really appreciate it. Can't believe you made those papers in your other card as I thought theu were shop bought patterned papers, they are gorgeous! My dog is better now thank You, figured what it was , he's been drinking out of a dirty brook when we go for walks lol. He won't be doing that anymore, he was really ill. Good luck in your competition xxx

Bless my soul what a work of art this is Jenny but how could you bear to cut into your graphic 45 papers! I only have one small pad which was a magazine freebie but I guard it jealously! This is absolutely the bees knees. hugs Mrs A.

Judith said...

what a fabulous project jenny - I love this type of crafting, so time consuming but you can really lose yourself in it - and so worth it at the end - just gorgeous! hugs Judith x

MaryH said...

I love G45 paper too. I never know how to use the designs as wonderfully well as you've done on this super guy card. Thanks for sharing the link, too, I'll check that out. Love the colors, love the texture, and each layer had so much interest and detail. You surely paired the different patterns so cohesively and beautifully. Love the bright greens (especially the leaf pattern) with the browns. The scroll mat behind the "Son" element has a sheen, looks like copper. Well done and I hope your spine soon rests up! TFS & Have a great weekend. Hugs
