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

 to all Mother's, and I do hope you are having a great day, and being spoilt by your family.

Today I have a card I just finished so I could join in the Frilly and Funkie Challenge as I do love their challenges.

This is a A5 size card.
The papers I used are Magnolia Lane.
I made the flower from Rose Petals that you buy for wedding table.
Coloured them with Memento Lulu Lavender, and Dandelion for the centre.
Leaves I cut out of some of the Snippets of paper, and coloured them with Memento Bamboo Leaves.
Most of this card was made out of Snippets of paper.
The challenge calls for Know When to Fold Them as a theme so I folded some of the papers just under the flower.

Thank you so much for your visit, and time as I know time is precious to all of us.

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
Today starts the Rudolf Challenge over at 

The challenge runs from the 25th of the month to the end of the month.
The theme is Christmas as always, and it's a wonderful way to get some of your Christmas Cards made early.
There is usually a very fab prize that can be won also.

So here is what I came up with for my DT design.

This is a 6"x6" size card.
I used Hunkydory Rainbow Mirri for my matting.
I then stamped all round the edges with a stamp I bought from Hobbycraft a few years ago.
Can anyone spot the mistake ?
I then stamped my oval stamp that came as a freebie from the Stamping Magazine.
This was all done with my Misti, and Fired Brick DI.
Just added some felt holly leaves bought from the Works.

Thank you so much for your visit, and time.
I do hope you can join this super challenge.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

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

It's a very busy week for me this week I have quite a few Birthday cards to make, I am also hosting the challenge over at my DT blog, and I am GD at Rudolf Challenge again on the 25th of the month.
So if I get bogged down and don't visit you please excuse me, but I will try, and keep things going if I can.

Now as I do like to join in just a few challenges that I support, and that's not too many as I can't remember where I have been sometimes if I do too many.
I know I can hear you saying keep a record, but I tried that, and it didn't work.
So with that in mind I made this yesterday for the Allsorts Challenge of which I have been very lucky.

This was a Kit I won over at the Allsorts Challenge, and it's from 
The Hobby House.
First time I have made one of these.
The dowling handle I painted with Starlight paint, and also the flowers too.
I made a small mistake on the milk cartons, and the holes for the string, but that was a learning curve.

Thank you so much for your visit, and the wonderful comments you make.
They really do make my day.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

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

May I welcome my 2 newest followers, and thank you so much for choosing to follow me.
I do hope you can visit as often as your time allows.

I do hope you had a good weekend, and the weather was lovely where ever you may live.

Today I have a card that I made for the Butterfly Challenge.
Just made this challenge with a day or so to spare again.
First of all I thought I didn't have any mint coloured card, but one night when I couldn't sleep with my RLS it came to me that I did have some Topsy Turvey card that had mint on the one side woo hoo.

This card was made with the Tattered Lace Broderie Anglaise Die I won on the Allsorts challenge recently.
I had to cut out the largest die in the set a few times to make the card a bit more sturdy.
The butterfly is a spellbinders one, and the flowers and foliage are Tattered Lace Mini Dies.

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

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

Today is the start of a new challenge over at 

It is the B Teams turn and I am the host for this fortnights challenge.
So I would like to see Handmade or Die Cut Flowers on your creations that you enter.

We are a challenge that has no sponsors, but you could be one of the top 3 or 5 if chosen.
Please pop over to the challenge blog to see my wonderful Team Friends creations.
So here is mine for our challenge, this card was inspired by Pam's wonderful card HERE.
I did not have her dies so this is my version.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
I cut out the flowers in white card, and coloured them with Aqua Markers, and the layered them to acheive the lift to the flowers.

I have also decorated a box for this challenge.

I painted the box with Starlight Paints.
Then I decorated it with items from my stash.
I made the Rose and hand cut the leaves, and coloured them.

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