SWEET GIRL

Hi and good morning to all you wonderfully talented people in bloggland.
THANK YOU for all your wonderful comments, and get well
wishes.
I'm still not feeling well, can't eat, got no apatite, very lethargic.
I tried a piece of dried toast yesterday morning, but nothinig
tastes nice, even tea and coffee are horrible.
Apparently there is lot of this bug going around, so I hope none
of you catch it because it' not nice at all.
Normally I don't catch any of these sort of bugs or have I just
been lucky.

My card today is one I made to take my mind of feeling soooo
rotten.

BREAST CANCER AWARENESS

Hi and good morning to all my wonderful talented followers and
visitors.
THANK YOU for stopping by and leaving such wonderful 
comments on my work.
I feel like doing a happy dance every time I read them.

Today I am bringing back my card I made for Dawns Breast
Awareness Challenge  a few weeks ago.
The reason I am doing this is I made the card for the challenge, and then put the finished card in my box where I keep my made  cards.
When my daughter and her partner were here the other day I was
showing them the cards I had made recently.
Well my daughter's partners sister is fighting breast cancer at the
moment and having lots of treatment.
So as soon as they saw the card they said could they have it for
her, which I was more than pleased to do.
I have now made a box to go with the card to be posted, so I thought I would put them both on my blog today.
I am so glad this card is going to someone who deserves it.

Blossoms Die.
Sorry it's a bit of a long post today

LOVE BUTTERFLIES

Hi and good morning to all my wonderfully talented followers
and visitors.
May I say a big welcome to my new follower, and thank you
for joining my blog.
Well it's Sunday, which can be a very busy day for most people.
So I do appreciate all of your comments and time spent visiting
my blog.
THANK YOU soooooooo much.

Today I was lost for a title for this card, so as there is a lovely
butterfly on it, and as I do love butterflies sooooo much, hence 
the title.
That brings me to small story about when I visited Butterfly 
World in the Isle of Weight.
I was very nervous about going in to see the beautiful butterflies.
You see I was afraid if one flew at my face I would get afraid 
and make a swipe at it, and perhaps do it some damage.
Well let me tell you I needn't have been afraid, because I wouldn't
have missed such a wonderful opportunity to see some exquisite
butterflies, and some really quite large variety too.
They had a special curtain to stop any from escaping into the
gift shop next door, well let me tell you one kept on trying to
get through with no avail, but he or she kept on trying.
Well I've waffled on toooooo much yet again.
So here is my card for today.

Click on the photo to enlarge the picture.

This card was made with holographic mirri card, papers from 
my stash.
That Special Touch Mask Ivy although it doesn't look like ivy.
Some punched flowers layered, a Martha Stewart Edge Punch,
and of course the Spellbinders Fanciful Flight Die.
I hope you like it.
Thank you again for taking the time to visit.
I hope each and everyone of you has a wonderful Sunday.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Click on the photo to get a larger image.

I drew a spider web, and then I went over the drawing  with
an embossing pen. I then heat embossed the web with a
holographic embossing powder.
This gave it the look you get first thing in the morning with
the dew on it.
I added some embellishments from my stash, and wallah the

65th BIRTHDAY CARD

Hi and good morning to all you wonderful and talented people
out there.
THANK YOU soooooooooo much for your visit and comments.
I really do appreciate everyone that is made.

My card today is a 65th Birthday Card made for a commission.
She wanted it fairly flat so she could post it.

Click on the photo to get a closer look.

I made this with an A5 size card.
The paper came from a Cupcakecrafting CD  called 
Floral Delights.
The 65 was made with the Ally Reeves number templates.
I added some vintage ribbon in green and a button.
The borders are a Martha Stewart punch.

Next I would like to show you something quite different for 
me.
I have always admired the lovely pins that  Linda Burrows of 
Creative Harmony blog makes, so I thought I would have a
go at making them myself.
So when I was in South Wales at my sisters I mentioned it
to her she gave me 3 pins she bought at sometime when
purchasing her jewellery bits.
So here is my attempt, nothing as lovely as Linda's.



I have ordered more pins so I will make some more over the
weeks.
Ideally the the pins should have been silver in colour  as my 
bits were silver but I only had gold pins and no gold bead
caps.
Thank you for your visit today.
I hope you all have a wonderful crafty day.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

POINSETTIA FAIRY

Hi and good morning to all my wonderful talented blog friends
and visitors.
Well it's Sunday morning again doesn't the weeks go by so quick,
before we know it Christmas will be here again.
Wasn't it only a few months ago we celebrated it. lol.
THANK YOU soooooo much for your wonderful comments.
I am over the moon with everyone that is made about my cards.

I gave all your Birthday wishes to my Dad yesterday, and he says
to say a BIG THANK YOU to all of you for the good wishes.

I am now riding high on cloud nine at the moment, because I
was picked to be one of the top 3 on The Pink Gems Challenge,
for the girls. It must be my lucky week first my win on the blog
hop, and now to come one of the top 3.
Who know I may win the lottery tonight and be able to treat
everyone of you after all. lol.  Pigs might fly, but if you see
any flying tomorrow you will know I have won. lol.
Right that's enough of my banter and on to my card today.


Click on the photo to get a closer look.

Now the inside.



This card was made into an 8x8 card from an A3 white card
I coloured the card with Tea Dye Distress ink to give it a similar 
colour to the paper I used.
I matted it with red card and then I used a paper and image from
a Debbie Moore magazine I bought a few weeks ago.
There was some lovely quality papers and images in it, and also
a free CD excellent value for £5.
I put the image on a Grand Scolloped Oval, added some 
poinsettias that I had cut out at my sister in laws house, as I 
haven't got this die.
Put some Cosmic PVA Glue dots around the image.
I did however make a grave mistake when I made this, I put 
too much glitter on her wings so I covered most of it up with
a small Christmas spray.
I hope you like my effort, I think I'm in my red faze at the mo,
as I seem to be making lots of red things.
Thank you again for your precious time.
Have a wonderful crafty Sunday everyone.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

the easel.
I embossed The Special Touch Doily Mask with some lovely
brown card I bought many moons ago.
I used one of the lovely Hunkydory toppers of a cute hedgehog.
Before I started I photo copied the card so I had the same paper
to go inside.
The bits left over I made the flowers with and put a brad through
the middle.
I coloured my American Seam Binding ribbon brown to go with
the colours in the card.
I added some Parisian Borders either side of a border strip as 
the easel stopper.
I hope you like this.

This card was made with an A5 lilac deckle edged card.
I embossed The Special Touch Doily Mask and cut away the
circle edges to leave the pointed bits. I added the pieces you 
usually throw away from the Parisian Accents to the points,
and the back of the points. 
Two strips of Parisian Borders down one side, and a big bow
made with American Seam Binding Ribbon coloured with
Milled Lavender Distress Ink.
I decoupaged a Hunkydory topper on top of the doily mask,
and finished it off with some flat backed pearls from my stash.
The center of the ribbon is made with a 1.5 circle punch, and
2 holes made in the middle to make it like a button.

Thank you again for sparing the time to visit me and make a
comment.
I hope each and everyone of you has a wonderful crafty day.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

VINTAGE LOOKING CARD

Hi and good morning to all you wonderful talented crafty followers
and visitors.
Well it's Wednesday again, I hope you all had a fab day yesterday.
Did you manage to slot some crafting in ?
I must admit I didn't, was just too busy to manage it boo ! hoo!
THANK YOU for all your wonderful comments.
I am a very Happy Bunny with them all.
I know your time is very precious to you so any time you spend
visiting my blog and leaving comments are very much appreciated.

My card today has a vintage look.
There is a small story attached to this card and couple more
I may show in the future.
My sister goes to beading class in South Wales where she lives,
and one of the ladies in her class gave her some cards she had
bought from C and C that she didn't want.
So my sister passed them on to me, these were the type you buy
and just add your own embellishments to. They were a funny
size so I made them into the size to fit just inside an 8x8 card.
I hope you like it.

Click on the photo to enlarge the picture.

This card is made with a 8x8 card blank.
Matted with pale green card stock then the funny sized card
matted on top.
Noe this left a line down the center where the fold of the card
was, so that was covered with vintage green ribbon and the
Parisian Accents either side.
I coloured the little green flowers with a whisper pen, and added
a green pearl into each center.
Wallah a fairly quick card to make.
Thank you again for your visit.
I hope you have a fantastic Wednesday.
I have got Ellie to look after tomorrow so I will visit your bogs
a little later in the day, if I can't manage it before she arrives.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Hi and good morning to all my wonderful talented followers and
visitors.
May I welcome my new followers Teresa and thank you very
much for joining my blog.
Well I hope you all had a wonderful crafty day yesterday.
I was over the moon to find I had won something in the
Joanna Sheen blog hop.
Don't know what it is yet, but I can't wait to find out.
I am soooooo excited, this is only the second time I have ever 
won anything while blogging the first time was about a year
ago on Sue Wilson's comment game.
I know I'm just like a big kid. lol. Isn't it just fandabbydozie 
to win though. I don't know if that's a proper word but it descibes
my feelings.

My card today is a Wedding Card.

Click on the photo to get a closer look.

This card was made with an A3 piece of card turned into an
A4.
The image came from a copyright free book.
I decoupaged the bride, and added some little pearly flowers to 
the bottom of her dress and veil.
I then added some gems as her buttons and to her bow.
I finished it of with some holographic peel offs and some
holographic sequin hearts.
I hope you like this today, slightly different but I think quite
unusual, but what do you think.

I hope you all have a wonderful crafty day today.
Thank you again for sparing your precious time to visit me.
I really do appreciate every comment that you make.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

TAG No 4 AND BLOG CANDY

Hi and another good morning to all my very talented followers
and visitors.
I hope you all had wonderful weekend, and that you managed to 
slot some crafting in somewhere over the weekend.
THANK YOU for all the lovely comments and Birthday wishes
for my Dads up and coming Birthday.
I will pass them all on to him today when I speak to him on the
phone.
I phone him every morning to see how he is and what he is going
to be doing that day.
My sister that makes the lovely jewellery lives quite near him
and looks after him so well.
I forgot to mention yesterday the reason I made his card in
red was because he has just had his kitchen refurbished,
and it's all red and white now, and I put the tarten paper on it
because my Great Grandfather was from Scotland.

My post today is my 4th Tag.
I got the idea for this because I had cut out the flourish part for 
my last tag, and the bits of flower left from that one were sitting
on the top. I kept looking at it out the corner of my eye as you 
do, and thought yes I'll make another tag out of that as it looks
so nice. 

Click on the photo to get a closer look.


Now to my candy.
As I'm getting very near to 30 followers. I thought I would show
you the candy for when we reach that magic number. I have been
adding a few things to it nearly every week since I started.
Amongst it all is a 12x12 plastic box to store your papers, and 
some 12x12 paper in it, but the photo doesn't show it very well.
I have also been crocheting some flowers out of some lovely
metallic thread.


Thank you again for taking the time to visit my blog.
I hope you all have a wonderful Monday.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY IN PEACH

Hi and good morning to all my lovely followers and visitors.
THANK you for taking the time to visit my blog and making
such lovely comments.
I know everyday I say how much I appreciate all of them, but
yesterday they were extra special, because of the extra wonderful
comments on my cards.
I had a terrible day yesterday, I was busy blog hopping as we
do, and then disaster struck the gardeners that cut the grass
outside where I park my car, threw up a stone from the lawnmower
and shattered my back windscreen of my car.
This put everything I had to do back at least 4 hours sorting it 
all out.
Still no new screen have to wait till tomorrow morning for 
new one to come in.

My card today is one I made for my sister in law.
I hope you like it.

Click on the photo to get a closer look at the card.

Now the inside.


I made this card with an A3 card cut to and 8x8 card
I didn't have any peach card to matt and layer so I used white
card and distressed it with Tattered Rose Distress Ink to give
it a peach colour.
I then used some Dovecraft Princess Fairytale paper.
The image was a freebie off the internet, and coloured with
Promarkers.
I added some flowers and embellishments from my stash.
Well that's all for today folks, thank you again for your visit.
Have a wonderful crafty day everyone.
I sure hope no disaster strikes any of you.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.
