EXPLODING BOX


Hi and welcome to my blog all my craft loving
friends, and visitors. 
Well I'm back form my sisters in Wales.
I had a wonderful time at the NEC and bought lots
of craft goodies that I especially wanted.
I was limited to what I could bring back though
as I have to travel back form Wales by coach, so 
I couldn't bring any of the lovely card they had.
As it was my suitcase weighed a ton.

Today I have an exploding box I made for Mrs A
butterfly challenge, I also used snippets from my
snippets box for the die cuts so I can join the 
playground too.

CLICK TO ENLARGE.




I used the Cupcakecrafting CD Floral Delights
by Andrew Hull, for the template and flowered
print on the card.
I used a lovely yellow silk flower on top and in
the center. 
The leaves are what I bought at the NEC on a 
ribbon.

I am sorry if I have missed visiting any of you
since coming home, but my top of my spine is
playing up and I am limited to how much typing
I can do till I am in a lot of pain.

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

MISICAL THEME CARD

Hi and welcome to my blog all my craft loving
friends, and visitors.
A big welcome to my newest follower, and thank
you for choosing to follow me.
I do hope to see you visiting me quite often to see
what I am creating.

Sorry I have been missing for a few days, but I
have been very busy, as it's my Grandson's 10
Birthday on Tuesday, so I have been busy baking,
looking after him, and his sister while their parents
went out Birthday present shopping.
I have also had to make his card which I was 
quite late making, and a card for our keyboard
player in our little singing group.
So I will stop waffling on, and show you the 
quick card I made for our keyboard player.

CLICK TO ENLARGE.


Now the inside.


This card is 7"x7" in size.
I used an old Hunkydory topper and card to
make this.
I did my usual thing of copying the card to 
create the inside.
I nearly forgot to say I had a happy accident while
making this card. I wanted to use my cosmic shimmer gold glue dots but they were so old they 
wouldn't go into dots, so I just brushed the deges
of the card with it instead, and got that lovely 
gold effect.
I used some of my snippets out of my snippets 
box for the brown die cut underneath the image,
and inside the card.

Thank you again for your time, and visit, and 
also all your wonderful comments.
I will be round to visit your blogs tonight after
my singing practice this afternoon, that's if I'm
not too tired, as I am getting on and will turn
65 later this week. lol.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
