Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
I do hope you all had a good weekend.
We have been having some very glorious weather lately, and it's been so mild too.

I was asked by a neighbour to make a Birthday card for her friend so here is what I made her.
I seem to be in a green phase at the moment. lol.

This is a A5 size card.
The image of the Blue Tit is a Hunkydory one and also the bottom border is Hunkydory mirri  card stock too.
I used an Ultimate Crafts square doily die to sit the image on.
Then I added some of the mini Tattered Lace flowers die cuts.

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

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
I do hope you are all having a good weekend, and for those of you that are not too well, I am sending Big Get Well Wishes your way.

Finished my card for the current Butterfly Challenge this afternoon, and I can also join the Allsorts Challenge as it's Anything Goes this week.

So here is what I came up with.

This is a 6"x6" size scalloped card.
I popped holes in each of the scallop's to accommodate the ribbon to be threaded through.
My background paper I created by swirling Memento Ink Bamboo Leaves onto white card to get the colour I wanted.
Then I added Cosmic Shimmer Enchanted Gold Gilding Polish to it to give a pearlised appearance.
I added a pierced flourish, and cut out some Butterflies, flowers, and fern die cuts from the left over card I made.

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

Hi and welcome to all my craft loving friends , and visitors.
Thank you for all get well wishes you are so kind.
Hopefully I will try and visit everyone eventually as I am trying to do commenting in stages throughout the days for a while.

So here is a card I made a couple of weeks ago.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The card stock and the image are from Hunkydory.
Placed a few die cuts under the images, and coloured my seam binding ribbon to match with Cracked Pistachio DI.
The Hummingbird Die cut inside is a Nbus one I have had for a while and I coloured it with Memento Inks.
Not too sure about this card as I think there are too many patterns on the front of the card.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
Sorry I haven't been about much, but I am having trouble with the top of my spine, neck, and right shoulder.
So not wanting a repeat of a few years ago I have been resting it.

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
Thank you so much for your visit, and your precious time.

Well I have just finished a card so I can join in this weeks Allsorts Challenge phew I think I have just about made it.

This is a 6" circle card I made.
The digi  image I coloured with
 Pro- markers, and a Sakura Black Glitter Gel Pen.
I printed my digi image again on the patterned paper, and paper pieced the lid, and bow.
The patterned paper is a download from the Cuddly Buddly Crafts.
My sentiment was cut out on some snippets of card so I can also join my playmates in the Snippets Playground with this.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Hi and welcome to all my craft loving friends, and visitors.
I would like to say a very warm welcome to my newest follower, and thank you so much for joining me in my crafty journey.
I do hope you can visit when ever your time allows.
I would also like to say a big
 THANK YOU to all my followers that always visit me on a regular basis, and leave such heart warming comments on my work.

Today I have a card  I made just because I loved the image.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The card I used was from Hunkydory's first set of images all done with a mirri finish, and they are all so gorgeous too.
As the card was so pretty to start with, I just added some die cut flowers, a corner die cut, and some seam binding ribbon that I dyed with Peacock Feathers DI.
 Sadly the mirri finish doesn't show up much in the photo.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
