Thank you for all your comments on my work.
I really am so pleased you like my work when there is so much

slowing down too much. lol.

My card today is one I made nearly 2 years ago to send into
the CBeebies Birthday cards.
For anyone who doesn't know they show some of the childrens
cards you send in on their Birthdays. I had been very lucky and
had 2 previous cards already shown for my great granddaughter.
So I didn't think I would be lucky again, but I was and it was 
shown.
This is more like scrapbook page than a card. I put a picture
of my granddaughter on the head of Upsy Daisy with Iggle Piggle
giving her a kiss.

SYMPATHY CARD

Good morning to all you wonderful and talented blog friends and 
visitors.
May I say a big welcome to my new member, and thank you for
becoming a follower of my blog.
May I also say a big THANK YOU to all my followers for their
interest in my blog you are all soooooo very kind to include me
into your daily blog hopping.
THANK YOU also for all the wonderful comments you leave.
I love to read everyone, and really do appreciate them all.

My card today is one my daughter asked me to make, and it's
the one we all hate to make a sympathy card.
It is for her friends dad who passed away recently.
I spent many hours yesterday pondering on the design, and I just
wasn't happy about it.
Then I walked away and watched some TV as you do, came back
and it fell into place, and I was much happier with the result.
Interesting to see what you think.

Now the inside.


This was a 6x6 card size.
I had to make it quite flat to go in the post.
I used centura snow white pearl card and then I matted some
lovely pearly patterned papers on top.
I cut out 3 Parisian Motifs out of some lovely starstream aqua
pearl card, then I cut 16 Parisian Corners.
I added one to each corner inside and out, and then I added one
to the north south east and west of the front motif.
This gave it that lovely diamond shape.
A flower in the center and some pearls.
There you have the finished card, I hope you like it.

Thank you again for your visit.
Have a wonderful crafty Monday.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

HUNKYDORY PRESENT

Hi, good morning and welcome to my blog.
A big THANK YOU to all you wonderful talented followers of
my blog, and any visitors that may pay me a visit.
Your views on my work are very welcome.
I hope you all had a fabulous Thursday, and the weather was
kind to you where ever you may live.
My thoughts are with those unfortunate people in America who 
have lost everything and maybe even a loved one.

I am feeling so much better now, I have managed to eat a little.
Tea and coffee still doesn't taste the same, but hopefully 
tomorrow they mat taste better.
Thank  you for all your get well wishes.
In any rate I shouldn't grumble this is nothing to what some
people have to put up with day in and day out.

My card today was made with a wonderful present that was
sent to me from a very lovely and talented craft person who
I won't name in case she would not like me to, but you know
who you are, and THANK YOU SOOOOOO much.
So I really made this for her, to see it's being made use of.

Now the inside.


This card was made with Hunkydory Adorable Scorable
A4 card outside and inside.
I added some a small doily underneath the topper of the cute
little elephant.
Some Parisian corners round the sentiment and in the corners.
A nice big bow, a few pearly embellishments from my stash, 
and last but not least one of my home made stick pins.
I decorated the inside to match.
I hope you like this one.

Thank you again for your visit.
I hope you all have a wonderful crafty Friday.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY IN TEAL AND SEA GREEN

Hi and another good morning to all you wonderful craft loving
people and visitors.
I hope this post finds you all fit and well, and not suffering from 
any of the nasty bugs about. If you are my sympathy is with you.
THANK YOU for all your wonderful get well wishes.
You are such a fabulous caring community.

I would like to say a big thank you also for your comments.
Everyone is greatly appreciated.

My card today is one that was shown on the creative harmony
blog, by the lovely Linda Burrows when I didn't have a blog
and I used to send her my cards and she very generously 
showcased them for me.
I thought I would post it on here as there might be  some new 
followers who might not have seen it. 

Click on the photo to enlarge the picture.

Sorry I didn't  photo the inside but I wish I had  because it
looked the same as the front without the flowers  and ribbon.
This card is an 8x8 size.
Matted with teal glitter card and sea green pearlised card.
I embossed the white pearlised card with the Enchanted
M-Bossability folder.
I added some flowers made with the Spellbinders Crosss Dies.
I basically cut away the cross parts and put them behind the
sentiments.
Finished it off with a ribbon and a bow.
Thank you again for your visit.

Have a wonderful crafty Thursday everyone.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
