GET WELL CARD


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

It's been so very hot in my part of Kent for quite a few days, while other parts of the country have had rain.
Now as you know I get very tired when it's very hot.
I think it maybe something to do with my meds I take so if I haven't visited you lately I am very sorry.

Today I have a card using a new Nbus
stamp I bought recently.
I have been wanting a jar stamp for quite a while so when I saw this I had to have it.



This card is a 7"x5" tent style I made.
The stamp is a Hunkydory one.
I stamped it with Memento London Fog Ink,
Coloured it with Pro-Markers, and then I added some acetate stamped with Stazon Black Ink.
I decoupaged the lid.
The Kraft card is snippets left over from my Butterfly Challenge card which I will show you tomorrow.
 So I will be joining my friends over at the Snippets Playground again this week Yay.
As I have used a Nbus item I will be also joining Darnell on her No 7 NBUS CHALLENGE.




Thank you so much for your visit, and the wonderful comments you make.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

RUDOLF CHALLENGE AUGUST 2016


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

Today is the start of the Rudolf Challenge, and as DT member I don't have to post a DT card for this month.
I also can't join in the challenge for the next 5 months.
So I have made 2 cards just to remind you of the Rudolf Challenge.
It starts on the 25th of the month till the end of the month, over at
and it's a great way to get some of your Christmas cards made earlier than you sometimes do. 
So here are 2 cards I made.







These are 8"x8" size cards.
The images come from a Hunkydory Christmas set I bought lately as I loved the images.
They are both decoupaged.

Thank you for your visit, and the wonderful comments you make about my work.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

FLORAL CARD


Hi and welcome to all my craft loving friends, and visitors.
Well haven't we had some really hot days, and nights these last few days.
I do hope you are all coping okay with it.
I am very lucky as I have a ceiling fan in my craft room, but it's still very hot.

I looked after my grandchildren on Monday, and caught the sun while sitting in the park while my granddaughter played on the equipment.
Silly me there was a lovely breeze, and I forgot that it can cause you to burn more easily.
I have freckled skin which is prone to burning easily, and at my age I should have known better.

Today I have a card I made yesterday for the Allsorts Challenge.



I am back to my fave size of card a 8"x8". 
The paper was a free download from the C&C club website, and isn't it very pretty so I just had to use it.
I decoupaged the Hydrangea in the middle, and added some stickles to the center of the flowers, as I didn't want to cover up that lovely paper.
The sentiment is a Creative Expression stamp.

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

PLAYING WITH INK DUSTING AGAIN AND SNIPPETS


Hi and welcome to all my craft loving friends, and visitors.
May I say a big thank you to my newest follower, and thank you so much for joining me on my crafting journey.
I do hope you are all enjoying your weekend, as the weather has not been too good.

I have been playing with my ink dusters again, and I hope this card looks okay.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
I used a snippet of card to do my ink dusting, and stamping on with Memento Inks.
Some of the black card used was also snippets so I will of to join my playground friends again this week.
I was one of the featured cards in the playground last week with my little book so I am really a happy bunny today.
I used the Delicate Vines Inkilicious Stamp for the background.
Sorry about the inside photo, but for some reason when I photograph the inside of some cards I get a yellow colour near the fold especially on white card.

Thank you so much for your visit, and the wonderful comments you make.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

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

Well it's Friday again so soon, and time to join ERIKA HERE

This is all just for fun, but a great way to show some of your older work.
We all have days off from bolgging so to post an Oldie, can perhaps let someone see somthing they may have missed the first time round.
You don't have to have posted it before it just needs to be something you have made in the past.
So go on and join us we would love to see more of you join us.
Here is mine for this week some boxes I made out of the left over card when I make my boxes for an8"x8" card.


These measure 4"x4" in size.
The left one I used some Mandala Peel offs to create.
The right one is Die Cuts.

Thank you for your visit, and the wonderful comments you make I very much appreciate your feed back on my work.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

MOVING ALONG WITH THE TIMES DT CARD..............CLEAN AND SIMPLE


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

It's time for my Design Team card for 
It's the B Teams turn, and the lovely Sue B is our host for this forthnights challenge, and she would like your entries to be Clean and Simple.
We don't have any prizes to offer, but we love to see your wonderful creations, and you could be chosen as one of the top 3.
Now I have to say I did struggle with this one as those of you that know me, know I have to sit on my hands to do a clean and simple card, and I couldn't think of a design to do.
You think putting less on a card would be easy, but not for me.


This is just under 6" in height, and just under 4" in width.
I must say I am not pleased with how this came out.
I bought some Brilliance White Ink to use on it, and it soaked into the card for some reason so I drew around the stamped image with a white gel pen.

Before I go when I was at my daighter's fund raising event there were people there showing owls.
Now as I love owls, and have them dotted all over my house in china form, and pictures of them.
 I just had to go and see them.
Here is a photo of me holding a Barn Owl.
It didn't come out too good as we were surronded by trees, and the photo was taken with a phone.


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