posted with the little girl in the snow, there was
a smaller version the sheet of paper, so here is
what I made with the left over pieces of card,
and my old Pandora Bag.


These cards are just under 5"x5".
I used some Cosmic Shimmer PVA glue dots
around the cards in white and plum glitter, and clear glitter on the umbrellas,  but it looks like red in the photo.

Hi and welcome to my blog, all my friends, and
visitors.

Well it's time again for the The Throw Back

If you would like to join in this fab challenge, 
you can find the site by going to my sidebar,
where it says Throw Back Thursday, or 
alternately there are details at the bottom of this
post.



This was a 5" x5" size card book.
I used lots of orange, purple, and black card.
Some of the Halloween stickers I won on
Bibiana's 2nd blog anniversary.
The Halloween calender is from Pink Gems,
and is a pre-coloured digi image.

CHRISTMAS CARD IN PINK

Hi and welcome to my blog all my craft loving
friends, and visitors.
Thank your for your visit, and comments.
I very much appreciate them all.

I have been having a few lower back problems
for the last 3 days.
So I am so sorry if I haven't commented as much
as I should have.
I have been trying to rest it as much as possible, but on seeing a challenge that gives $4 for each card entered into the challenge, in aid of Breast
Cancer, how could I not make a card to go into
this fab challenge.
I have just made it too as the challenge closes at
6pm.
They wanted to see pink in their Christmas Cards
so here is my version.





This is a 8"x8" size card.
I embossed my card with the Sue Wilson
embossing folder Swirling Holly.
The sentiment is a digi pre- coloured image from
Pink Gems.
The little white poinsettias were made with a
die I won at the Snippets playground.
I used a double sided sticky sheet, and some 
Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels Glacier Ice on
them.
Now I used up lots of snippets for making the 
poinsettias, leaves, and the pine bough die.
So I will trot off to the snippets playground with this.

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

BUTTERFLY CHALLENGE CARD

Hi and a very warm welcome to all my very 
talented craft friends, and anyone who visits me.

I do hope you were not troubled too much with
the tale end of the hurricane from across the
pond.

Well I'm nearly late to join the Butterfly challenge 
again, I seem to be getting later, and later in
joining this fab challenge, still as they say better late than never.
Mrs A would like to see a tag, or a tag on a card
for this fortnights challenge.
So here is my effort.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
The paper used was printed from a Joanna Sheen
CD Victorian Birthdays.
I covered my tag with the same paper, and used
lots of snippets on it.
The butterfly was a present from my dear blog
friend Flora, as she sent me some lovely die
cuts, in return for something I sent her.
I used some Cosmic Shimmer White PVA dots
round the edge.
So I will join the snippets playground, again with
this.

Thank you for your visit, time, and wonderful
comments you make on my efforts.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

TOO SWEET TO SPOOK

Hi and welcome to my blog all my craft loving
friends, and visitors.
I do hope you are all having a great weekend.
The weather here in East Kent yesterday was
glorious, and I do hope it was the same for you.

Now I joined the Pink Gems  e mail list and 
every month they send you an e mail outlining 
their offers for the month.
So while looking around their site I spotted 
quite a few things I wanted.
So here is the result.
This was bought as a digi kit, and I just could
not buy it now could I, as it's soooooo! cute. 
It's a pre-coloured digi kit, and I have decoupaged 
Chloe.




This is a 8"x8" size card.
Now I say this was a digi kit, but the pumpkin 
ticket was a stamp for 50 pence, and the cat 
inside was also a stamp for 50 pence.
The pumpkin stamped around the edge inside
was one I won on Bibiana's blog last year when 
she was celebrating her 2nd blog anniversary.
I used some snippets to mount my sentiment on,
so I'm off to collect the keys to the playground, 
and join the other playmates.
If you fancy joining in just use up some of your 
snippets and join us in the playground.
We love to welcome new playmates, and 
Miss Di, and the lovely Parsnip keep us on
our best behaviour .

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

My body has done a wonderful job of healing
itself, and I won't need physio.

had hanging around.

Primark to take apart for such things as this and
bows.

were about six on a piece of acetate, well after
making this card I can no longer find them.
I have hunted high and low for them, with no
luck so far, I bet where ever they are, they are

VINTAGE CAMELLIA CARD

Hi and welcome to my blog all my very talented
friends, and visitors.
I do hope you are all feeling fine, and for those 
that may be feeling poorly, I do hope you will
soon be felling A1 again, so big get well wishes
winging their way to you.

Thank you for your visit time, and wonderful 
comments you make on my creations.

Today I have a card that I pondered on for a
while, it's been lying around my craft room
unfinished for a few weeks now, and I 
eventually finished a couple of days ago.
Still not sure if I like it, that's why it's taken me
so long to finish.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
The paper is from a My Craft Studio CD.
I coloured my doilies with Antique Linen, and
Victorian Velvet DI, and then sprayed them 
with a mixture of Mica powder, and water.
It doesn't show up in the photo well ,but it has
a lovely sparkle to it. 
The Vintage Camellia's were made from a kit
I bought at the NEC in March, and can be 
bought from the RIBBONBOX HERE.
The leaf shaped lace in the corner at the bottom
is also from the RIBBONBOX too.
The stone is actually a iridescent green sort of 
black colour, but it shows up as blue in the photo.
The Mesh Ribbon in the top left corner is also
from the RIBBONBOX, and the center piece
I bought at the works.
I used some snippets up to mount my image on,
and that was from the Creative Crafting World
Walk in the Countryside CD.

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

BUTTERFLY CHALLENGE AND SNIPPETS CARD

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

 I do hope you are enjoying your weekend, and
the weather is being kind to you.
We have beautiful sunshine and blue skies, here
in the East of Kent, but it was a quite a  chilly 
start to the morning.

I am feeling a lot better now, it must have been
some sort of bug I picked up, and I don't very
often suffer with those.
I also had a phone call from the hospital 
offering me another appointment, and guess 
what it was for Monday, so I had to decline it.
Just waiting for another one now.

I needed to make a card for the butterfly
challenge, and the theme this fortnight is
Autumn Butterflies, so here is my effort.





This is a 8"x8" size card.
The card and image used is a Hunkydory
 Autumn Butterfly one from about 3 years ago.
The image came in 3 sections so I used 
mounting foam on the center piece to raise it up,
but it doesn't show in the photo.
I cut out my butterflies and coloured them with
Rusty Hinge, Pine Needles, DI, and also 
Archival Ink Potting Soil.
I added some gold stickles to them too.
I also cut out my leaves, with some snippets card,  and distress inked some, and used stickles and Cosmic Shimmer Iced Snow Glitter on them.
The inside corners were made from the left 
over pieces of the front corners, and one I had 
used before.

Thank you so much for your visit and the 
wonderful comments you make.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY. 

I would like to enter the following challenges.

friends, and visitors.

Thank you kindly for your visit and your
precious time, as I know time is precious to
all of us.
I really appreciate your visit and the wonderful
comments you make.

uncle's family.





This is a 6"x6" size card.
I stamped my Creative Expressions Sayings
Stamp with Versa Mark clear embossing ink,
and then heat embossed it with Sea Foam White
Embossing powder.
I die cut my Sue Wilson Peace Die, and used
the edges around a snippets piece of white card.
I did the same to the stamped sentiment.
I added some stamped corners to the white card
with Faded Jeans DI.
I also stamped a pattern inside the card with the
same DI.

Thank you again for your time and visit.
I won't be around blogging on Monday as I'm
going to my uncle's funeral.

Hi and welcome to my blog all my craft loving 
friends, and visitors.
I would like to welcome my newest follower,

Sorry I have been AWOL for a few days.
Have been very busy making more cakes for
the Macmillan Coffee morning tomorrow, this 
is my second round of making cakes, as last 
week I made them for my daughter's works
coffee morning.
Phew I don't want to bake another cake for 
a while now.
Standing and baking has aggravated my hips,
so I have been having a few probs there too.
I also have had a family bereavement, my 
dear uncle and the last of my Dad's siblings
has passed away.
So I didn't feel much like blogging.

Today I have an Anniversary card I should
have posted yesterday, as it was a blog friends
25th Wedding Anniversary.
I think she has received it now hopefully.





This is a 8"x8" size card.
I embossed my card with the Teresa Collins
embossing folder Sophisticated.
The backing to my hearts is Indigo Blu Mica
Flakes Eton Mess
The Heart Die is Tonic.
The leaves are the Sue Wilson Faux Quilled
Leaves Die.
I made the organza flowers, again with my 
heat gun.

I am off to the hospital tomorrow, about the
top of my spine, so we will see what's going
with it.
Thank you for you visit and your wonderful
comments.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
