BOX FOR THE BABY GIRL CARD

Good evening dear blog friends and visitors.
I do hope you have had a wonderful day, and those that have 
had the snow are managing to keep nice and warm.
THANK YOU for all your wonderful comments on my Baby
Girl Card.
I was so thrilled with them all especially the one from the 
Pink Gems D T member who made a fabulous comment on 
my entry into their challenge.

Today I have had to visit the hospital in Canterbury for a further
check up on my eyes. I can't believe a sight test and an eye scan 
can take two and half hours.
The problem with my eyes started about 3 years ago when I 
would loose a letter or a number in a word or figures. It seems I 
have a condition called Mactel for short version of a big long
name. This is basically cysts behind the eyeball which will
result in me loosing a lot of my eyesight one day, but it's very
slow moving and hopefully that will be many years from  now.
When I visit your blogs I have to zoom your text to be able to 
read it. Well that's enough of my probs I expect there are more
people with worse than that to cope with out there.

So to the box to go with the Baby Girl Card.

Thank you again for your visit and comments.
I hope you all have a wonderful crafty day, and are keeping 
nice and warm.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

BABY GIRL CARD

Good evening to all you wonderful talented crafts people and 
visitors.
I do hope this cold weather isn't making you too miserable.
At least we can get some lovely jubbly crafting done that's if you
don't have to go to work.
Well it's the 2nd week I have had to cancel my little club I run,
don't want any of my ladies slipping over in the snow and ice,
and the hall we meet in is very cold at the best of times without
this horrible freezing weather.

Today I have made a Baby Girl card for my sister to give
to her granddaughter in February. I still have to make a book
one in a box for my niece to give her. She know it's a girl as it
is her 4th child that will be 3 girls and 1 boy when she has this
one in February. She is slowly catching up to her grandmother
who had 5 children.

MY TREASURED FRIEND MY TEDDY BEAR

Good evening dear blog friends and visitors
I can't believe it's Friday evening already.
I am so sorry I haven't posted much this week or commented
on any of your fabulous work.
It's been one of those awful weeks with a hundred and one things
to do and not enough time to do them in, or it's just me slowing
down, or my age. Well that's my excuse in any rate.

I do hope you are all keeping nice and warm in this dreadful
cold weather. Isn't it just awfully cold at the moment.

My Dad got taken into hospital last night, and with all this
horrid weather I can't even make the journey to Wales to see
him.

My card today is one I have made for my neighbour  who is
96 tomorrow.  She hasn't got very good sight these days so
hence the big writing.

Click on the photo to enlarge the picture.

Now the inside.


I photographed this before I put the Happy Birthday on it.
The papers are Dovecraft, and the image is one that was already
coloured in as I needed this card made in a hurry and didn't have
time to colour it in.
Thank you again for your visit and your wonderful comments on
my last post.
I really do appreciate every comment that you make.
I hope you all have a wonderful Saturday tomorrow.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

PINK WHITE AND MAROON CARD

Good evening dear blog friends and visitors. 
I hope you have all had a wonderful day today and have managed
to find a little time to do some crafting.
THANK YOU for all your wonderful comments on my work.
I really enjoy reading what you think of my creations.

My card today is one I made today.
There is a little story attached to this one.
The die cuts in the center of the card were sent to me from
Patricia of Summerhouse Crafts. She kindly sent them glued
together to show me how to make her wonderful Christmas
decoration. She also kindly sent me enough to make one of these
decorations which I showed on my blog before Christmas.
Now I had the one she glued together left,  so me being me
decided to make it into a card.
I inked the and glittered the edges a while ago and then I came
up with this idea to turn it into a card.
I hope you like it, I was quite pleased with the result.

Click on the photo to enlarge the picture.

Now the inside.


I used some paper from my Dessert Blooms Pad.
Some maroon card, flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Spellbinders Decorative Circles, Marianne Creatables for the
corners, and I believe the center is Spellbinders Iron works
Accents and Motifs correct me if I have that wrong as I don't
own those dies. The flourishes are Spellbinders Foliage 2 dies.
Thank you again for your continued support of my work.
I hope you all have a fabulous Wednesday. 
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

TAWIT TAWOO

Good morning to all you wonderful and talented followers and
visitors.
Good grief it's Saturday all ready this week seems to have flown
by even faster than ever.
THANK YOU for all your comments.
I really do appreciate everyone that is made.

I was thinking what is the handiest gadget you have been
bought for Christmas.
Mine was a soup maker my daughter bought me.
It looks like a kettle but is slightly bigger in width, and can you 
believe it makes soup in 21 mins.
The soup comes out so lovely, you can have chunky soup or
smooth soup as the machine liquidises it too.
No horrible fat to add so ideal for a diet.
I have even made some with frozen mixed vegetables for supper.

Well I digress this is a card I made a few days ago form a  new
digi image I bought from The Pink Gems website.
While we are on the subject can anyone tell me the name of a 
card that doesn't bleed with Promarkers.

Click on the photo to enlarge the image.

Now the inside.


This is an 8x8 size card.
Matted with yellow card and Dovecraft papers.
I have used some doilies under the image.
Some Dovecraft Flowers some wooden owls from Hobbycraft.
Some gold corners and some Spellbinders Foliage 2 round the image and of course the image was coloured with Promarkers.
Thank you again for your visit.
I hope you have a wonderful Saturday and that you manage to
slot some craft into your day.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
