ANOTHER CARD WITH SOME SPRING FLOWERS


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

Also a big warm welcome to anyone that just pops in to look at my work.

Couldn't sleep again so I was in my craft room again in the wee hours.
This is what I made a simple, and quick card which will go in my charity box.



This is 6"x6" size card.
The image and papers are Hunkydory.
Just added some silk leaves, ribbon, and pearls.

Now I have a photo of my Granddaughter who did the Brighton Marathon on Sunday with her friend.
This was a 26K marathon, and she ran for the Pilgrims Hospice.
Oh my word this is such an achievement don't think I could have done it at her age.

So proud of her giving up her time for such things, and a good cause, as she has 3 children to look after.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
It is very much appreciated.

Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

BIRTHDAY CARD AND BOX


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

Also a big warm welcome to anyone who just pops by to view my work.

Was asked by someone to make this card as I have made a few now for this person.
So here is what I created back in the beginning of March. 




This is a 8"x8" size card, and box I made to fit it.
The card stock is Creative Expression Navy pearlised, and Blush card stock.
I used my Paper Boutique dies for the doily, and John Lockwood's corners from his sandwich box die.
The Happy Birthday is a Sue Wilson die.
Just added some flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts that I inked to give a slight colour.

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

SPRING FLOWERS EASEL CARD


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

Also a big warm welcome to anyone who just pops by to look at my work.

Sorry I have been MIA again not going to bore you with my health probs again.

So I was looking at the Allsorts Challenge this week, and as I am up most nights I thought I would make this for the challenge entry.





This is a 5"x7" easel card I made.
The image is from the Hunkydory Little Book of Garden Treasures.
I decoupaged the right hand flower pot, the bow, and the plants.
Also I decoupaged the butterfly, and the daffodil just above it.
The gold matts were snippets, and the image of the daffs on the easel stopper are a snippet from another card I made. 

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

BABY GIRL BOOK AND BOX


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

Also a big warm welcome to anyone who just pops by to look at my work.

I do hope you had a lovely Easter whatever you were doing.

Before I went to Wales to visit my sister I had to make her some Baby Books that I made for all her other Grand Children when they had their first Baby.
This Grand Child is having her first in May, but doesn't want to know if it's a Boy or Girl till it's born.
So I made one of each to take there in case.
Here is the Girl one sorry a bit picture heavy.










This is a 6"x6" size book and box I made to fit.
The papers, and the image are from the Joanna Sheen Baby Love CD which is no longer available I'm afraid.
The Baby items are from my stash.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I very much appreciate every visit, and comment.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

EASTER CARDS MADE WITH SNIPPETS


HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE
I do hope everyone is having a lovely Easter weekend.
As usual it's raining in my part of Kent it nearly always rains for Easter.

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

Also a big warm welcome to anyone who just pops by to look at my work.

Yesterday I thought I would make some Easter cards.





The first one is 8"x8" in size.
The second one is 8"x5" in size.
I used gold mirri snippets for my matt and layering on the first just joined it in the middle, and the backing yellow card for the shaker part is a snippet too, not done a shaker card for ages.
The second one is the snippets cut off of the A4 sheet of Hunkydory card stock.
Flowers I have had in my crafting arsenal for about 10years just cut out some John Lockwood's leaves to go with them. 

Will be joining my Snippets playground friends with this.

As always thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I always love to read your lovely comments.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

RUDOLF DAYS CHALLENGE ........MARCH 2018


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

Also a big warm welcome to anyone that just pops by to view my work.

Now I am really late with this entry into the Rudolf Days Challenge
 over at
The challenge ends tomorrow so I am just making it.
As always it's anything goes as long as it's Christmas and 
ONE ENTRY PER PERSON.
So here is what I made today.



The wreath image was on a Christmas card I was given this year, and I thought it was too nice to throw away so I cut around it and made a easel card with it.
I used lots of snippets to make the base of the easel, the stopper, and the centre greeting, and the pieces out of the base die cut.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
It is always appreciated very much.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
