BABY BOY BOOK CARD 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 are all having a great weekend, and enjoying the lovely weather we are having.

Spent yesterday with my Daughter, and little Great Grand Children, and we all went shopping together it was a lovely day, but I came home shattered.

Today I have the Baby Boy Book, and Box I made for my sister's Granddaughter.
Remember I showed the Girl one a little while back.
Sorry it's picture heavy.







This is a 6"x6" size Book Card, and Box I made to fit it.
The image is a snippet from another baby card I have made.
Just put acetate on the front of it which was another snippet too.
The die cuts were cut from snippets as well, and the paper and image are from the Joanna Sheen's Baby Love CD. 

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

THINKING OF YOU AND SYMPATHY CARD


Hi, and 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.

Now those of you who have known me for a while might remember I used to sing in a group that entertained people in nursing homes.
Sadly that all fell through when our keyboard player passed away 2 years ago.
Well last week I went to a funeral of another of our lovely singers.
The instructions from the family were to wear something sparkly  not dark as she loved her bling and was such an outgoing person, and could sing beautifully.
So this is the card I made for the family with that in mind.



This is a 6"x6" size card.
The papers are Hunkydory, and the bling butterfly image was from a freebie pad you got with the stones to make it.
Think I made a Boo, Boo, with the trail from the butterfly. 
I think it should have larger stones to smaller ones.

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

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.
