MR FIX IT

Good evening dear and talented blog friends and
visitors.
I am sorry I haven't been about blogging and making comments on your wonderful creations,
for a few days.
I have been doing some gardening. Got all my 
bedding plants planted and even my hanging
baskets done. Then the old dreaded house work
and shopping done, and then today I thought I had
better get to grips with making my Sons Birthday 
Card, as I have left it rather late as it is on Thursday.
Sometimes I get right behind with my card making, and other times I am weeks ahead of 
myself.

THANK YOU for all your last comments on my
work. It really gave me a great boost of confidence
all those wonderful comments.
I sometimes think that my work isn't very good,
when I look at all your lovely creations.

So this is my card I made today for my Son.

Now the inside.



This card is an 8x8 card.
The digi image is a Mo Manning digi image,
coloured in with Promarkers and Flexmarkers.
The Papers used are from The Forever Friends
The Good Life Pack.
I have used some embellishments from my stash.

Thank you again for your visit.
I hope you are all having a fabulous week, and 
managing to get lots of crafting done.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

STAMPED FLOWERS

Good morning dear craft loving friends and
visitors.
I do hope you are all having a wonderful Bank
Holiday weekend.
I hope the weather is being kind to all of you.
We have lovely sunshine in Ashford Kent, but the
wind is still a little cold.

THANK YOU SOOOOOOOO much for all your
 comments on my last piece of  work.
I get so pleased when I read all what you have to
say about my work, and what is going on with you, at the present time.

I am not doing a lot this weekend maybe some
gardening if this weather keeps up, as I have some
bedding plants to go in my garden.

Today I have a card I made with a new stamp I
bought at my local craft shop. I needed some 
pinflair glue, and some double sided tape.
In my local craft shop if you spend £10 you get
a stamp in a card and when that's full you get
£10 off your next purchase, so this stamp I bought
to make up the difference. I am quite pleased with
how it's turned out. Not one of my best designs but it will do.

CLICK TO ENLARGE.


Now the inside.


For this card I distressed the paper with Wild Honey, Victorian Velvet, and Vintage Photo distress inks, and then I stamped my flowers all
over it. 
I added some Cosmic Black Pearl Glue dots to it too.
I stamped out my flowers, and coloured them in
with Promarkers, and then cut them out and 
decoupaged them, and added some Stardust Stickles to them.
I added some Cosmic Pearl White Glue Dots to
the corners and round the SB die cut.

Thank you again for taking the time to pay me a visit and make your wonderful comments.
I do hope you all continue to have a fabulous
weekend.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Good morning dear blog friends and visitors.
THANK YOU SOOOOOOOOOO much for all
your wonderful comments on my last creations.
I really do appreciate every one that you make.

I do hope everyone is fine and bushy tailed today.
I am sorry I have not visited your blogs for a couple of days, all those horrible mundane jobs
got in the way of me crafting and blogging.

I got up to bright sunshine this morning, and now
it's turned all dull and raining. Boo Hoo.

Today I have a really long post, as it's one of my
Baby Book cards and boxes which I finished
before the last card and box.

CLICK TO ENLARGE.

Now the side view of the box.


Now the book card.


The inside.






Now last of all the back of the book.



This is a 6x6 size card and box.
The images and papers are from the Joanna Sheen
Baby Love CD except for the one on the first page
which is from a small decoupage book.
I used the Glitter Girls Cosmic Board to do the
hand embossing.
Then I added some SB die cuts and bits form my 
stash as you do.

Thank you again for taking the time out of your
busy day to visit and comment on my work.
I hope you all have a wonderful crafty day.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

BOX FOR THE BABY BOY CARD

Good morning dear friends and visitors.
THANK YOU for taking the time out of your busy day to visit my blog and make such wonderful comments.

I hope you all had a fab weekend with great 
weather.
I am off to my singing practice this afternoon
as we have a performance at a nursing home on
Thursday afternoon. I'm getting a bit more used
to singing in public now as this will be my 3rd
performance.

Today I have the box that goes with the Baby 
card, it is all packed up and ready to be posted
to my sister in Wales.
I hope you like what I have done with the box,
as I ran out of the powder blue card I used for 
the card.


CLICK TO ENLARGE.

Sorry about the image on the box for some 
reason it would not come out as clear as the card.
This box is to hold an 8x8 size card.
I found the lovely teardrop gems in my stash
which I bought ages ago form C and C, and I 
think they go lovely in the cut outs of the SB
Tear Drop Circles.

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

NEW BABY BOY CARD

Good evening to all you talented craft loving
people and visitors.
THANK you for choosing to visit my blog and 
leave such fabulous comments.
I am always delighted by your wonderful comments.

I do hope you are all having a super weekend,
with lots of crafting time to yourself.

Tonight I have just finished a Baby Boy card for
my sister to give her granddaughter, when she has
her first Baby at the end of the month. She knows
it's a boy so no problems with having to make two
different colour cards just in case.  Isn't technology great if you decide you want to know the sex of your Baby.



CLICK TO ENLARGE.


Now the inside.


I have used the Joanna Sheen Baby Love CD
for the backing papers, and the image.
Some doilies under the SB Dies.
This was made entirely with SB Dies.

Thank you again for taking the time out of your
busy lives to visit me.
I hope you all have really wonderful Sunday
tomorrow.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

YELLOW BOX AND CARD.

Good morning to all you wonderful and talented
craft loving people and visitors.
I hope you all have had really good crafty week.
THANK YOU SOOOOOOOOO much for all
your wonderful comments on my last card.

I do hope the weather is starting to improve where
you live. Here in East Kent it is very lovely one
day and quite horrible the next, and still quite cold.

I am in the middle of a Baby Book project at the
moment for my sister's granddaughter, and I have
been looking after my little great granddaughter's 
yesterday. So I ma sorry if I haven't been visiting
your blogs.

Today I have a box and card I made about 5 years
ago, and before I was bought my Grand Calibur.
It was for a lady who was retiring from her job, and loves to go golfing. There are quite a few
photos for this one, so I hope you are not bored
with it.

CLICK TO ENLARGE.

     
     



                                 
  This is an A5 size card book.
Made by gluing 3 A5 size  card together and
then gluing the center pages together at the back
to make the center piece.
I decorated it with freebie images found on the internet, and peel offs.
Now I know a lot of you very professional card
makers don't use many peel offs, but this was made before I was told this by a good crafting buddy. Still I do think they have a place sometime.

Thank you again for taking the time to visit me,
and leaving your wonderful comments. 
I hope you all have a wonderful crafty day.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

80th BIRTHDAY CARD

Good morning dear blog friends and visitors.
Sorry I haven't been about blogging for a few
days. We were away for a long weekend in
Mansfield for a wedding reception being held
there. I hope to get down to some serious bloging
later today, keeping my fingers crossed that I'm
not asked to baby sit for my great granddaughter's.
I really need to get cracking as I have a boy baby
card to make, and also one of those baby book
cards I make too.

Thank you for comments on my last card.
I really do appreciate everyone that you make.

I went out to do my singing with my group of
singers yesterday. It is so lovely see the people
in the nursing homes enjoying our little 
entertainment we do. It was my second outing
with them and I am really enjoying it. Wish I 
had done it many years ago.

Now to my card for today. I made this one a 
long time ago for a lady in my little club who's 
sister lives in Scotland. It was a rather quick 
card because she didn't give me much notice.
It also had to be fairly flat as it was being posted.

CLICK TO ENLARGE.


Now I have some more of my sister's jewellery
she makes.



On my card I used the Cupcake CD Floral Delights for the paper.
I used a template to make the large 80.
Flowers from my stash, with Stickles to glitter
them.

Thank you again for your visit. 
Hopefully I will be round to see what you have
all been creating later today, as I have to go
food shopping as the cupboard and fridge looks
a tad bare.
I hope you all have a wonderful crafty day.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

this would be great for my granddaughter.

stamp. So the wonderful Pops came to my rescue and lent me
her stamp. THANK YOU soooooooooo much you are a great
blog friend.

not as good as she is at colouring in the images.

MR TUMBLE'S SPOTTY BAG WITH A DIFFERENCE.

Good afternoon dear blog friends and visitors.
I hope you all enjoying your Bank Holiday weekend and that the
weather where you are is kinder than it is in KENT.
They said we were going to have a fantastic weekend weather
wise. Well I can tell it's very dull and overcast here, and it's tried
to rain once or twice. Had to rush out and bring my washing in
not long ago, and I hate leaving my craft desk when I'm 
creating. lol.

THANK YOU sooooooooooo much for your kind and wonderful 
comments left on my last card.

Yesterday I looked after my little great granddaughter for her
mother as she works on a Friday, as  her usual babysitter was
not able to have her.  When my granddaughter and my other
great granddaughter dropped off Ellie her sister Faye who's
Birthday it is on the 10th said to me are you making me a card
with Mr Tumble on this year.  Now how can I not make her 
what she wants. So this is my effort. 

CLICK TO ENLARGE.


Now the inside.



I thought for a while, what I would do this year, so it wasn't the
same as last year, and this is what I came up with this morning.
The bag card was made with 3 A4 size pieces of card.
The papers inside are from the paper stack book I bought a 
few weeks ago.
I edged round the bag with glitter ribbon, and also used some 
to strengthen the handle.
I think I will make a plate stand for it so it stands up.

Thank you again for your visit.
If your weather is not nice like mine is, then I hope you manage
to do some crafting. 
I do hope you have a wonderful crafty day.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
