Now the front.


This is a 5"x5' size card, made with the left over
snippets of my last Halloween card.
Even the front aperture was from the last card.
I  distress inked the tags with Wild Honey 
Distress Ink as I ran out of the orange card.
I used a black Promarker round the edges of
the tags too.

Thank you again for your visit.

SNIPPETS CHRISTMAS CARD

Hi and welcome to my blog all my craft loving 
friends, and visitors.
Well the storm hit us and we survived without
any damage thank goodness.
I feel for anyone who wasn't so lucky as us.
I had a very restless night though as the noise kept waking me up.

My card today is for the Pixies Playground Snippets challenge, as it was made out of snippets.
I still find it amazing what you can create out of
snippets.

CLICK TO ENLARGE.


This is a 6'x6' size card.
I embossed my snippets card with my embossing
folder that came with my E Bosser
Then I stamped the image on another snipptes
bit of card, and coloured it in with Promarkers.
I added some cosmic shimmer glue dots in red.
The sentiment stamp was a bargain from 
Papermania stamps set of 9 stamps for £1-99
I do love a bargain and these are excellent 
stamps for the price. I bought it at the Works.
I used a red Promarker round the edges of the
embossed card and the stamped image.

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

HALLOWEEN CARD

Hi and welcome to all my craft loving friends
and visitors.
I am sorry I have been missing for a while, but 
I have had family come to visit, from up north,
and you know what it's like when you all get
together after a long absence.

I also had to finish a commission for 2 wedding
cards and boxes. The lady who ordered them 
wanted an A4 size card for the one so I had to
get my thinking cap on to make the box to go 
with it. Not made that size before. I was quite
pleased how they turned out, but can't show
them yet till the wedding day.

I had a little craft time yesterday so I made this
Halloween card.

CLICK TO ENLARGE.


Now the inside.



This is a 8'x8' Size card.
The Halloween Calendar is from the Pink Gem
web site. I won their challenge in September
and this is one of the images I chose.
The web doily is from a Martha Stewart Circle
Punch.
The Halloween bits I bought from Waitrose.

Thank you again for your visit.
I do hope you all have had fun creating while
I have been away.
Will be round to see what you are all posting
shortly.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

AUTUMNAL OWL CARD

Hi and welcome to all my craft loving friends,
and visitors.
Thank you soooooooo! much for all your good
wishes about my eye op.
I have decided to listen to music and listening
books while having to do the posture thing for
5 days, that should take away the boredom. lol.

Thank you also for all your really kind comments
on my last card.
I have had a commission come in for 2 Wedding
Cards and Boxes, and also a Golden Wedding 
Anniversary Card and Box.
So I am eager to get these finished in case I get
called in for the op, so excuse me if I miss
commenting on your super creations at some
time in the next week or so.

My card today is an Autumnal Card.

CLICK TO ENLARGE.


Now the inside.



This is a 6"x6" size card.
The paper used was from a few lovely snippets
of paper that I inherited from my Aunt after she
passed away. I just copied the small piece so I
could use it inside my card, because you know 
how I love to  have the inside to match.
The owl is a Tattered Lace Die I bought at 
Hobbycraft last week, I saw it and had to have 
it, as you do. lol.
I made my rosette with my Hougie Board.
The ribbon and leaf charm I won on a blog
hop last year.

Thank you again for your visit.
I hope you all have a wonderful crafty day.
Anyone not feeling to well at this moment, I 
am sending big Get Well wishes, and hugs,
your way.
Lots of love.  JENNY.

FATHER CHRISTMAS CARD

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

May I welcome my newest members to my blog,
and thank you for choosing to follow me. I do 
hope you like what I have to offer and return
often.

Well I had an appointment about my eye probs
today. Will be having an op on my left eye within
the next 18 weeks.
The only downside to this op is I have to sit with
my top of my body bent over a table for 5 fays
after the op with a break of 10 mins every hour.
Then they are still not really sure of the outcome
as they have never seen my 2 fold problem, they 
have dealt with the one but not the 2 before.
So I suppose I am the guinea pig for others that
come along, maybe or am I unique. lol.
I always thought they broke the mould when 
they made me. lol.
Well enough of this waffling just wanted to let
you know that I will be off air so to speak when
it all goes on.

My card is made with one of my old wooden
Christmas stamps.
Sorry about the cutting out it is awful.

CLICK TO ENLARGE.

This is a 6"x6" size card.
I used my pigment ink again and stamped the
background card, and then Mica powdered it
with a soft brush.
I used another snippet of red card left over from
previous cards.
I stamped my image and coloured him in with
Promarkers.
I used Glossy Accents on the boots, but it 
doesn't look that good in the photo.

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

POINSETTIA CHRISTMAS CARD

Hi and welcome to my blog all my craft loving 
friends and visitors.

Sorry I haven't been around for a few days I was
a bit under the weather,  all this damp  has made 
my Arthritis play up so I thought I would have a 
few days rest. I suffer with  Osteoarthritis and have it in my spine so sometimes it affects my 
neck and lower back quite nastily if its' damp.
I will get around to looking in on your blogs 
today, hopefully.

Thank you for all your recent comments on my
Scary Mary Keepsake Box.
I very much appreciate them all.

I managed to craft a little yesterday, and this is
what I made for the Pixies Snippetts Challenge.

CLICK TO ENLARGE.

This is a 6"x6" size card.
I stamped all around the edge of the card with
a stamp my Niece lent me, coloured in the berries
with a Promarker.
I stamped the Poinsettia stamp all over the red 
bit of snippetts card with pigment ink, and then
brushed it all over with Mica Powder.
I stamped the Poinsettia stamp onto a bit of 
snippetts card again, and coloured the image in
with Promarkers again.
This is a really beautiful set of stamps my Niece
lent me.
She was the one that got me into card making
about 12 years ago.

I do hope you have all had a fab weekend.
Thank you again for your time and visit.
Lots of crafty love.   JENNY.

CHRISTMAS SCENE CARD

Hi and welcome all my craft loving friends and
visitors.
I do hope you are having a great week so far.

Thank you for all your comments on my last
card.
I do appreciate your time, visiting me and making
your comments, as I know we all lead busy lives.

My card today is for Pixie Snippets Playground.
I made the snow scene with bits of left over card,
and I used Polar White Flower Soft  for the snow.
Now I wanted to do a sky, but I'm afraid my 
distress inks were not the right colour, so think
of it as a night sky or early evening so I added
some stickles to represent stars.

CLICK TO ENLARGE.

This is a 5"x5" scolloped card.
The clouds were given to me by the lovely
Sue P.
I have had the snowman and reindeer with the
googly eyes for about 3 years. I think they were
from Tesco.

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

BABY CARD

Hi and welcome to my little corner of blog land.
I do hope you enjoy your visit, and continue to
visit my blog.

Thank you for all the lovely comments on my
last creation.
I do love to read what you have to say about my
work.

This is my entry into the Pixie Snippets
Playground this week.

CLICK TO ENLARGE.


This is a 6"x6" size card.
The actual base card was made from the left
over card from my 8"x8" size cards.
The paper is from the Joanna Sheen Baby Love
CD. I used this piece on a Baby Girl Book  card
I made my sister a while back. So this what was
left for my snippets. It didn't quite fit the card
so I put a piece of silver mirri card between and
that was also a piece left over from the book card. I then covered it with lace and ribbon.
The beautiful cute image is from a Cd my 
hubby bought me from e bay.
The die cuts around the image are from the 
freebie  Christmas Tree Die I had with a craft
magazine. Just cut away the top  and slotted 
the bottom end over the image. 
I think it makes a rather lovely frame.
I then added some roses, and pearls from my
stash.

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