THINKING OF YOU CARD AND BOX.

 

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

I mentioned in my last post I made a card for a lady having mouth surgery this was for a pub landlady and they wanted lots of little cards for the people that frequent the pub to give their well wishes.

So here is what I made for her.

 



This is a 8"x8" size card and a larger sided box to accommodate the larger spine and flowers used.

Papers used are Paper Boutique and the circular die and sentiment die used are Paper Boutique also.

Butterflies are a Carnations Die.

Flowers made by myself from and assortment of dies I have and then I used Glossy Accents on them.

The leaves are a Heartfelt Creations Die and coloured by me

with Distress Oxide Inks and then I used a white gel pen for the vines and also heat embossed them with a glowing pearl embossing powder. 

Gold cardstock isTonic and the Lemon Pearl card is from Stephanie Weightmans card stock.

Lace is from Buddly Crafts.

 

Thank you for your visit and precious time.

I really appreciate every visit and wonderful comment you make.

Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

RUDOLF DAYS CHALLENGE DT JANUARY 2022

 

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

I have been a bad blogger yet again, as I have had lots of family Birthdays and also family and neighbours have asked me to make cards too, and as you know I can't say no to anyone.

One card was for a lady who was having her pallet of her mouth removed so I just had to make one to cheer her up. 

 

As it's the 25th of January already it's time for the Rudolf Days Challenge over at 

SCRAPPYMO'S BLOG 

I do so hope it is my turn to do my DT this month as I am not sure.

But as I last did it in November last year I presume it's my turn again as we do alternative months.

The challenge runs from today till the end of the month.

As always it's anything goes as long as it's Christmas.

ONE ENTRY PER PERSON 

but you may put more than one card on the same post if you like.

There is always a lovely prize for the winner donated by Maureen too.

So here is what I made this month.

 


These are both 8"x8" in size.

The background dies are Creative Expressions Paper Cuts Dies.

The fir branches and pine cones are Sizzix.

The coloured rainbow mirri card is Tonic.

I paper pieced the Deck the Halls in the blue to make it stand out more.

Thank you so much for you visit and precious time.

I really appreciate every visit and wonderful comment especially as I am such a bad blogger too.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
