RUDOLF DAY CARDS

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

I have 2 cards for the Rudolf Day challenge for April.

Click to enlarge.


Now the 2nd.


These are both 7"x7" size cards.
Made with the Crafters Companion CD Popcorn
the Bear Christmas CD.
I have used some snippets for my poinsettias so I can join the playground too.
Quite basic as I am still struggling to do craft,
and typing and using a computer is very painful
for me.

I miss my visits to all of you, as you have become
such good friends to me.
Thank you for your interest.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

BUTTERFLY CARD

Hi and welcome to my blog all my craft loving
friends, and visitors.
Thank you for all your  wonderful comments on
my last creation.

I have a trapped nerve in the top of my spine, and it is extremely painful.
I am currently on strong painkillers and find it
very hard to craft or blog.
I have lost the proper use of my right arm as well.
Waiting for an MRI scan now, and getting very 
bored not being able to craft.
So I popped in my craft room for small occasions
to make this card for the butterfly challnege.
This took me 5 days to make instead of hours.





Thank you for your visit.
Not sure when I will be able to blog properly 
again.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

ENGAGEMENT CARD

Hi and welcome to my blog all my craft loving 
friends, and visitors.
This will be a quick post as I can't look at the 
computer screen for too long without being in
a lot of pain.

My daughter and her partner got engaged yesterday, so I made this card.
I can craft for small periods.

CLICK TO ENLARGE.

Now the inside.


Ingredients.
A3 card made into an 8"x8" size card.
I made the flowers from some bridal petals I 
found in my stash, and coloured them with 
Wild Honey Distress Ink.
I did the same to the lovely pearlecent card, and
then embossed it with the Sue Wilson embossing
folder Art Deco Fanfare.
I used some snippets from my snippets box for
some of the die cuts.

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

GET WELL CARD

Hi and welcome to my blog all my craft loving
friends, and visitors.
As most of you know I went to Wales to see my 
sister recently, well after I left she took quite ill, 
and is in hospital at this moment.
Nothing too major but, enough to put her there
for a few days at least.
So I made this card for her.
I thought I would go with yellow again as that
colour is bright and cheerful, to cheer her up.

CLICK TO ENLARGE.
 Now I wrote on it before I photographed it so
hence the odd position of the inside.

Ingredients for this card.

A3 white card made into a 8"x8" size card.
I used my Cupcakecrafting Floral Delights CD
for the papers.
While at the NEC my sister bought me a little
card kit so I used some of the items to decorate
this card.
Ribbon flowers made out of the card kit.
The butterfly is a peel off and put onto the 
snippets of paper left over from my exploding
box.

Thank you again for your visit and your 
precious time spent visiting my blog.
Thank you also for all your wonderful comments
on my work.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
