HUBBIES BIRTHDAY CARD


Hi and welcome to all my craft loving friends, and visitors.

Well are you all melting with this HOT! weather.
I have found a good way to cool down I run a flannel under cold water and lay it on my face and my neck, and you can't believe how that cools you down.
Never thought of it before, but I used to cool the children's temps when they were ill like that.
Try it if you haven't it really works well. 

Today is my hubbies 78th Birthday, and this year I thought I would put Marilyn Munroe on his card as he has always loved her photos especially black and white ones as he used to take lots of photos at one time, and has always loved black and white photography.
So I won the Quirky challenge last month, and won $15 of digi images from Ike's Art and this was one I chose with Hubbies card in mind.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
The digi image is from Ike's Art.
The papers are a Cuddly Buddly download, but they were brown.
So light bulb moment hooray.
I printed it in brown, and then copied it in black and white.

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

TRAVEL THEME BIRTHDAY CARD


Hi and welcome to my very talented friends and visitors.

ooooooaaaa! it's been hot in my part of Kent, and as you all may know I am not good with the heat.
So sorry if I have been missing for a couple of days, also Mr Mojo is still doing walk abouts in this heat well I ask you.

Had to make a card for my stepdaughter's man friend, and came up with this although I am not that happy with it.
I know he has travelled quite a bit so this became the theme.



This is an A5 size card.
Papers and post card from a My Craft Studio CD.
The image and the stamps are from a Robert Addams Vintage Transport CD.

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

SNIPPETS THANK YOU CARD


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

I have had a very busy week this week a little gardening done in small stages as not to hurt my back, and I organised a outing for the club I run where I live to Eastbourne on Wednesday.
Spent all day Thursday getting over it all.
I also have been having Mr Mojo issues he just doesn't want to work now it's hot again the little blighter.
So suddenly yesterday evening I had some snippets lying around my desk and blow me down Mr Mojo decided to work hooray. 
So here is the card I made completely with snippets.



The image of the flower is the negative of a die cut I used a while ago.
I coloured some snippets for my background, and sprayed glued it, and then added some glitter.
Just added a permanent green pen to make the leaves, and stems darker.
Inked the edges with Cracked Pistachio DOI.
The pink die cut was also a snippet on my desk that I had cut out and not used.
Will be joining my friends at the Pixie's Snippets Playground with this.

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

STITCHED FLORAL THANK YOU CARD


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

I do hope you all are having a great weekend.

Well can you believe it I won the Allsorts Challenge again last week that's 2 weeks in a row, and about the 6th or 7th time since I have started to enter it.
I also was chosen as over all winner at the Quirky Crafts Challenge with my card that had the song Come on Eileen on it.
The same card was in the top 3 at the Frilly and Funkie Challenge also. 
I feel very honoured and lucky as I am not so very lucky usually.

So today I have a card I made for the Allsorts Challenge with some of my new dies I bought with my winnings.



This is a 6"x6" size card.
The lovely floral paper was a bargain from B&M at £2-49 for 24 sheets of double sided papers that are 250GSM.
The stitched oval dies are one of my purchases from my winnings.
The mint green leaves were also one of my die  purchases too.
The flowers, and dark green leaves are TL mini dies.
Lastly I stamped thank you with a freebie stamp from a craft mag in Tuxedo Black Ink.

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

This gave it a lovely pearlised sheen.
I embossed my background with a embossing folder that I had with my old E Bosser Die Cutting Machine.
I cut out 12 corners in the blue card for the outside and inside.
I die cut a circle frame and added some other die cuts around the inside edge.
Painted a wooden Happy Birthday and the 30 with the paints.
Lastly I added some flowers I made with some of the painted card.
Then I created my box to go with it.

Thank you so much for your visit.

CHRISTMAS IN JUNE.......CARD


Hi and welcome to all my craft loving friends, and visitors.

Oh my goodness my heart goes out to everyone caught up in those tragic events of Saturday Night, and their families.
No words can express the deep sorrow I feel for them all.

This afternoon I had an idea for a card trying to take my mind off it for a little while by crafting.
So I made this card for the Allsorts Challenge, which I won last week, and won a £20 voucher to use at 
If you have never shopped there I can highly recommend their products they stock.



This is a 6"x6" size card.
I started by cutting out a circle of white card, and then I stamped some fir branches in Pine Needles DI.
I then heat embossed it with Silver Pearl embossing powder which I have had for years.
Then I started to make my scene by ink dusting the sky and creating hills out of snippets of card.
Then I stamped the fencing in Tuxedo Black Ink, and the trees in Potting Soil Archival Ink.
I then used a used a Quickie Glue Pen to do my glittering for the snow. 
Finally I added a wooden snowman not at all sure I should have added him.
Other than that I am quite pleased with this , and how it turned out.

Thank you so much for your visit.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
