MOVING ALONG WITH THE TIMES CHALLENGE 165 ..... FANCY FOLDS

 

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

Sorry I have been missing in action but I have had quite a few health appointments to attend to in March and March is a very busy month for family cards too.

Do not worry they were just routine appointments for opticians, dentist and hospital, but were doubled up because of problems, such as fillings and of course when I go to the opticians I get referred back to the hospital again and I must say the appointment for the hospital was very quick to arrive.

 

Well it's the 1st of the month and time for a new challenge over at

MOVING ALONG WITH THE TIMES 

It's the lovely Helen's turn to host this month's challenge and she would like to see Fancy Folds on your creations. 

So here is what I created.

 


 

The second picture is the opening of the card .

This is a 8"x8" size card that I adjusted the size from a Sam Callcott You Tube vidio.

The flowers around the aperture and on the front are Tattered Lace Dies and I coloured them with Alchol Markers.

Image of the birds are Hunkydory.

I made the stick pin on the front.

Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.

I really appreiate every visit and wonderful comment you make.

Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

SNIPPETS BOOKMARK

 

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

I am here with my entry into the Snippets Playground challenge which started yesterday.

I was asked to make a 70th Birthday card and box for my daughter in law's Aunt which I shall show at a later date.

So out of the paper left over I decided to make a book mark for her too.

 



Snippets used after cutting off the bookmark part.
 


The white card on the left is snippets left over from makeing the box for the card.

I cut out the bookmark and glued it to the box card then I added some glitter film which has a sticky back to it to the front.

 My friend gave me a sheet of the glitter film I used.

Rounded the corners and sanded the edges to make it smooth.

The cord and tassle were from an old Birthday card which I saved years ago.

Just added a bead and charm to it.

ANNIVERSARY CARD

 

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

Is it very dismal where you live we have had 3days of rain here in my part of Kent, I suppose  shouldn't grumble at least it's not snow and icy weather.

Today I have an Anniversary card I made recently.

 


This is a 8"x8" size card.

Which I think you may know is my fave size card to make.

Was diappointed about the Happy Anniversary sentiment as it doesn't show up much.

I cut out my heart with a Tattered Lace Die and glued the edges with the edge of the die that doesn't attach in a cream colour which I cut out and put on the back of the heart if that makes sense to you with my discription.

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

I  have no one to make Valentines cards for now so I am showing you one I made in 2016 for my dear hubby. 

Just in case any of my new followers haven't seen it.

 

This was a digi image coloured with promarkers.

Can't remember where the digi image was from.
