WEDDING CARD AND BOX

Hi and welcome to my blog.
I do hope you are all having a great weekend.
Thank you for your visit, and time.
I very much appreciate every visit and comment
made.

Today I have a Wedding Card and Box I made 
for my niece to take to a wedding she was going
to on Saturday.



Now the box.


This is a 8"x8" size card and box to fit it.
I used the Sue Wilson Embossing Folder Art
Deco Fanfare.
This is lovely as you can use both sides as they
are both lovely.
The heart shaped dies are Tonic.
Now I usually like to use the bridesmaids 
colours in my wedding cards, but as my niece 
didn't know I went with silver.
I used up some of my snippets on some of my
die cuts so I will join the playground with this.

Thank you again for your visit.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

RUDOLF DAY JUNE 2014

Hi and welcome to my little part of blog land.
Thank you for your visit, and precious time
visiting me.
May I say thank you also for all your wonderful
comments you make on my work.

Today I am posting my entries into the Rudolf

These are both 8"x8" size cards.

the images and papers.
I stamped the verses inside the cards, and on the
front of the pink one, I heat embossed it with 
Silver Pearl Embossing Powder.
I used up some snippets from my snippets box 
for some of the die cuts.
Thank you again for your visit.

SOUTH OF FRANCE RACING ANYONE

Hi and welcome to everyone that visits me.
I would also like to welcome a new follower too,
and thank you for choosing to follow me.
Thank you also everyone that chooses to visit me quite often.
I really appreciate your visit and the wonderful 
comments you all make.

Here is a card I made for my stepdaughter's
partner.





This is a 8"x8" size card.
I used another image from my Hunkydory
Decoupage Pad.
The backing paper is again from the Robert
Addams CD Vintage Transport.
I have run out of red and navy card stock so again I coloured the card with my Promarkers.
I also used some of my white snippets card for
round the image and the inside, so I'm off to the
playground to join in the snippets challenge with
this.

Thank you again for your precious time.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY L.

HUBBIES BIRTHDAY CARD

Hi and welcome to my blog all my craft loving
friends, and visitors.
Thank you for your continued support of my blog.
I really do appreciate you giving up your time for 
this visit.

Tomorrow is my Dear Hubbies Birthday so I can
safely show his Birthday Card I made as I know he won't be looking at my blog till tomorrow.
Now he has reached the wonderful age of 75, and
when he was a young man he was a fireman on a
Steam Engine of a train, so I thought this topper
was ideal for this years card.




This is a 8"x8" size card.
The topper is a Hunkydory Decoupage one.
The papers printed from a Robert Addams CD
Vintage Transport.
I cut out some of the train tickets decoupaged 
them.
The letters are from an XCut Die.
Now I used lots of snippets from my snippets
box for stamping my sentiment on and my die
cuts, so I am off to the playground with this.
Thank you again for your visit.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

BY THE SEASIDE

Hi and welcome.
Thank you for your visit and comments that you
make on my work.

I am still continuing to feel so much better now,
but I still have to be very careful not to overdo
things because I feel so much better.
It has been a long slow process to get here, and I
don't want to go back to square one again.
I am still waiting for the appointment at the hospital to see the orthopaedist.

Today I have a card I made for my friend that
used to run the ladies club with me.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
The topper is from a Joanna Sheen toppers pad,
and the artist is Faye Wittaker.
You get 2 toppers of the same image in each pad.
The papers are from the Good Life Pad of papers.
I didn't have any dark blue card so I coloured the
edges with a blue Promarker. 
I used some of my snippets card to mount the
topper on to, and to stamp the verse and sentiment.
So I will be joining the snippets playground with
this card.

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

WORLD CUP FOOTY CARD

Hi and welcome to my blog all my craft loving
friends, and visitors.
My pain is so much better, but I still have a
 few twinges now and again.
I just have to be very careful what I do, can't 
even think about carrying anything that is heavy.
My garden has really suffered because of this, as
my DH has heart problems and can do very little
amounts of gardening too.
My daughter cuts my grass, but has no idea what
is a weed or a flower.
She is coming over today to cut the grass and is going to try with my directions to weed my garden.

Here is a card I made for my granddaughter's
hubby a couple of weeks ago.


Now the inside.


This is a 8"x8" size card.
I used some more of the lovely footy papers
I bought about 10 years ago from C & C as they
were so ideal because of the world cup this month.
I used some snippets of card that I had already
printed the footballs and football boots on from
my snippets box, this is from a Robert Addams
CD.
So I will be joining the snippets playground with
this.

Thank you again for your visit and your 
wonderful comments.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

THANK YOU CARD

Hi and welcome to everyone that visits me.
Thank you for all your wonderful comments on
my last card.

I am getting better by each passing day and 
feeling a lot stronger now, typing and using my
computer keyboard is no longer too painful thank 
goodness.
I am still getting a few prob with my right arm
where the nerve was trapped, but I'm sure this 
will soon be better too.

Today I have Sue Ps thank you card to show
you.
Now I know Sue has a cat and loves all types
of our furry and feathered friends, and also her
garden.
So that's my theme for this card.


Now the inside.


This is a 7"x7" size card.
The paper is from a book of papers I bought.
Round the edge is a tonic punch, and I used some
snippets to make these, so I can join the Snippets 
Playground challenge again.
The image is from a Joanna Sheen toppers pad,
and the artist is Sylvie Ashton.
The flower was cut out of the Heartfelt Creations
die Majestic Blooms.
I made the template for my paper bow myself.
Lastly I added some stickles.

Thank you again for your visit and time.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Thank you for all your wonderful comments on 
my work.
You are very generous with your time, as I know
time is precious to all of us.
Thank you also for all your get well wishes, my
pain is easier now, not having to take so many
pain killers, but it's still painful to look at the
computer screen for too long, or type and use my
mouse, for too long.
I had 2 wonderful get well cards from my blog
buddies and really good friends Sue P, and Sue J.
They were truly amazing and very fab.
So I have made them thank you cards which I 
will pop in the post tomorrow.
Now I know this is naughty but this is Sue Js
card as I was soooooo pleased with the result I
just have to show you all even before she gets it.
I do hope she doesn't mind.



Now the inside.


This is a 7"x7" size card.
The stamps I have used for the background
paper and the owls are JustRight stamps.
I used snippets card to stamp the owls out so I
will be joining the playground with this.

Thank you again for your visit.
