GRANDSON'S 30th BIRTHDAY CARD


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

Now don't faint, but I have another card again today.
I told you I have made so many lately as I have a big family. 

In the middle of this month it was my Grandson's 30th Birthday.
Well I think we all struggle with the male makes, so while visiting my dear blog friend Jackie T she showed a lovely card made with this die I have used so I just had to buy it as it will be so useful.
I have made cards before with a bottle on but had to use a template to make them, and as my eyes are not so good any more so I just had to have this die.



This is an A4 size card.
The bottle die is a John Lockwood Die.
You get the glasses die with this too.
I cut the glasses in white card, and coloured the drink with promarkers, and then I sprayed them with the Crafters Companion Spray and Sparkle Pearl Diamond which gave them a glitzy glass look which I am not sure shows up on here.
A few drops of stickles for the bubbles.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I sure do appreciate each visit, and wonderful comment.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

There is always a lovely prize on offer for the winner which Maureen funds herself.
The challenge runs from today till the end of the month.
So here is my DT card fro this month.

  
 This is a 8"x8" size card.
I decided to make a shaker design this time around.
I started with plain white card stock and embossed with a embossing folder from Crafters Companion.
I then sprayed it with Crafters Companion Spray and Sparkle Diamond Pearl to give my card stock a pearlied sheen, and it shows up the embossing lovely.
I left the front card stock plain, but put an embossed piece behind my shaker design.
White holly leaves I have had for many moons, the Merry Christmas and the white, and silver Reindeer are from the Works.
I love how the Merry Christmas just floats on the acetate.

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

Sorry I have been missing for so long as you know I have a large family with lots of cards to make for, either Birthdays or Anniversaries, and also ones my family want for themselves to give.
So today I have a Wedding card and box I made fro my Daughter's fiance's Nephew.




This is a 8"x8" size card and box I made to fit it.
The bridesmaids wore grey so I used grey pearlised card on my design.
The couple getting married are a singing duo, and he plays the guitar too so I put the music notes on the design.

BITTERFLY CHALLENGE CARD


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

I was making an Anniversary card for my sister yesterday, and the snippets left over I thought would be brilliant for the current Butterfly Challenge as the colours in the paper snippets were just right.



This is a 5"x7" size card.
The paper is a download from Tattered Lace that came with the Lemon Verbena collection.
I managed all the items required except one as I did not have an Hexagon.
I believe there is Hunters Green in the leaves, Hot Pink in the ribbon on the tag, Helliotrope on the paper also, Heat Embossed sentiment, and of course my Butterfly.

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

BIRTHDAY CARD WITH A SPORTING THEME


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

Sorry I have not been around much lately.

Today I have a Birthday card I made for my Granddaughter's husband who does this sport, and I can't remember the name of the sport silly me.




This is a 8"x8" size card.
 The image I found on the Internet.
My Granddaughter actually thought it was a photo of her husband when she saw it.

On another note my Granddaughter always goes to Ascot Ladies day every year, and I show a photo of her every year at the event.


She wore a lovely culotte suit by Karen Millen this year, and she has just the figure to show it off.
She had to have it taken up a little, but guess who got the job of pressing it the day before.
Needles to say I used a cloth to iron it as I didn't want spoil such an expensive outfit.

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