SON'S BIRTHDAY CARD

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends,
and visitors.
I am so sorry I haven't been around for a few days,
but I am getting everything ready at home so I 
can visit my sister in Wales as she has her op
next week.
So I will be away in Wales for either a week or 
ten days, hoping to give her some positive 
thoughts, and support.

This is a card I made for my Son's Birthday
which was yesterday.
Now it's really funny as he had 2 bought cards
both with the same main image.
He loves to ride his bicycle, as does my youngest
Son who I made a similar card for in February.





This is a 8"x8" size card.
The image is a Hunkydory one from one of 
their decoupage pads.
I made the backing paper with an images, and 
my Decoupage 2 CD.
I used the Sue Wilson Die for the frame, and 
used my rub-ons over the debossed part again.

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

BABY SHOWER CARD AND NAPPY CAKE

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends,
and visitors.
Sorry I have been missing this week, but it's 
half term, and I was asked to look after my
Grandson, and Granddaughter, and cooking
was on the cards again.
My Grandson made his usual Lemon Drizzle,
and my Granddaughter this time made Butterfly
Fairy Cakes.
So I was a bit exhausted yet again, and I have
quite a few Birthdays at the end of this month,
as well as this Baby Shower card and Nappy 
Cake for my other Granddaughter on Sunday.
The Nappy Cake idea came from Hazel's blog.
http://hazelsbasketsofjoy.blogspot.co.uk/2014/02/girl-nappy-cake-and-card.html 
Please give her a visit, as she makes some wonderful, and very useful baskets, and
present ideas, as well as cards. 
Sorry this is a bit picture heavy.






The card is a 8"x8" size card.
The delightful image is a pre-coloured one
from the Pink Gem Designs.
You get a pre-coloured one and one to colour 
yourself.
The papers are a digi download also from the
Pink Gem Designs, I just added a yellow 
Promarker to the center to go with the dress in
the image.
I am going to be joining 2 challenges with this.
The Pink Gem one, and the Butterfly Challenge,
as I think they both fit the criteria. 

Thank you for your continued support of my
work.
I very much appreciate you time.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following

RUDOLF CHALLENGE MAY 2015

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends,
and visitors.
I do hope you are having a lovely Bank Holiday
weekend, and the weather is being kind to you.
We have had mixed weather here in my part 
of Kent a little bit of sun, and rain also.

I was out with my daughter and her fiance 
yesterday, and when I got home I was exhausted.
So a little nap was in order, but I spent nearly
2 hours asleep, and on awaking I suddenly
remembered I hadn't made my card for the
Rudolf Challenge yet, and it begins today, and
carries on till the end of the month.
So crafting was the order of the evening, and
this is what I created with the Sue Wilson Die
I won on her blog.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
I embossed the die, and cut it out, and then 
rubbed a metallic rub -on in gold over the 
embossing.
I have had this set of metallic rub-ons  for more
than ten years, so I suppose it's a little like the
new type of gilding waxes.

Thank you for your visit, and the wonderful
comments you make.
I very much appreciate each, and everyone.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

OLDIE FOR FRIDAY

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends,
and visitors.
Oh my word it's Friday again already, and the
Bank Holiday weekend is nearly upon us.
Here's hoping you all enjoy sunshine wherever 
you may live.

Sorry I was not about to comment yesterday,
but my daughter who is right handed has hurt
her right arm, and mum to the rescue to help her.

So onto my Oldie for Friday this week, you can
join in with this HERE Erika would love to see
what you have created in the past.
Just post an Oldie, and then leave a comment on
her Oldie post and she will visit you in return.
It's all for fun, but a great way of showing your
older creations.

So here is mine for this week.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
The papers, and the image is from a CD my
DH bought me on the internet, and it doesn't
have a name.
The die cuts were cut from a die my dear blog
friend Christine lent me, and I cut out lots of 
them.

Thank you for your visit,and the wonderful comments you make.
I really appreciate everyone that is made.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

NEPHEW BIRTHDAY CARD

Hi and welcome to all my craft loving friends,
and visitors.
Thank you so much for your visit, and the wonderful comments you make.
I really appreciate everyone that is made.

I made this card a while ago for my daughter to
give her nephew, and realized I hadn't posted it.
Her nephew is my Grandson who is a Goal
Keeper with the local club he plays for.
He is 11years of age, and a really great Goal
Keeper, and has won man of the match a few 
times, the Golden Boot, and his team has let 
the least goals in his league.
As you can see I am really proud of him, as he
suffers with Asthma, and had a spell in hospital
a couple of weeks back with a bad attack, and it
was the first time he had been in hospital.
In any rate I am waffling on as my dear blog
friend Sue P would say.




This is a 6"x6" size card.
The paper and the image are printed from the
Cupcake Crafting CD Tumble Teds Pastimes.
I bought this CD when it was on offer of just
£1 so a bargain.

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

THANK YOU CARD

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends,
and any visitors.
Thank you so much for all your wonderful
comments you make.
I am truly honoured that you like what I create,
as there is so much talent out there in blog land.

Well as I mentioned before I won the 1st and 
7th Throwback Thursday Challenge.
For winning the 7th I received a lovely 
Memory Box daisy die from Bibiana, and
Memory Box so here is what I created with it.
A thank you card for you Bibiana.



This is a 6"x6" size card.
The Memory Box Die comes with stems, and
leaves which I cut off, and mounted just the 
flower part of the daisy on a double sided
sticky sheet, and then added some Cosmic 
Shimmer Iced Snow for my background.
I stamped the thank you on a piece of snippets
card, and it looked bit plain so I stamped the
flower border round it, but didn't have daisy
stamp so it's a pansy stamp.

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

Hi and welcome to all my craft loving friends, 
and visitors.
I do hope you have had a wonderful weekend.

I went to my Great Granddaughter's party yesterday, as she was away with her parents 
last week so the party was held this week.
Oh it was lovely to see all the young girls 
dancing and enjoying themselves.
Just wish I still had their energy. lol.

Today I have a card I created specially for

The image is from the Pink Gem Website, and
is a pr-coloured image, called Faye with Flowers.

sorry I can't remember where, it may have been
from a craft magazine on line.
I added some pink stickles to the center of the
flowers, and lace stickles to the hem, and the
sleeve of her dress.
All other items from my stash to match.
The bright pink card was from my snippets box,
so I'm off to the playground to join in with my
playmates at the snippets challenge.

wonderful comments you make.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

GREEN AND ORANGE BIRTHDAY CARD

Hi and welcome to my blog all my craft loving
friends, and visitors.
I do hope your week has started well, and for
those of you experiencing problems of any sort
a BIG HUG winging it's way to help you cope.

I have a card I made very quickly, and flat today,
as it had to be posted to New Zealand.
Oh this was so hard for me, as I love to embellish 
with lots of items from my stash.




This is a 6"x6" size card.
Green papers from a CD, and the orange ones
I can't remember who's they are.
The image is from the Joanna Sheen pad of 
Faye Whittaker images, and I thought it 
appropriate as it's for my husbands sister, and 
there is only 2 of them left out of 4 siblings, and
she is the elder of them.

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

BUTTERFLY CHALLENGE AND SNIPPETS CHALLENGE CARD

Hi and welcome to my part of blog land, all my
very talented friends, and visitors.
I do hope you are having a great weekend, and 
the weather is lovely wherever you may live.

I have had just a wonderful lucky week, as I won
one of Sue Wilson's new dies on her blog, and 
then yesterday I won the Pink Gem Challenge.
I nearly missed both as my Internet has been playing up, one min it was on and then the next 
it was off again.
It was all to do with the router, but my provider
said there was nothing wrong with it.
This is the 2nd one we have had from our 
provider in less than a year.
Lots of probs with our provider so when our
contract is up we won't be going back with them,
as their customer service is awful.
Well that's enough of my grumbling.

Here is my entry into the Butterfly Challenge,
and the snippets playground.





This is a 6"x6" size card.
All the papers, and card used are snippets,
except for the base card.
The base card I bought from the supermarket,
and it was Dovecraft, and a bargain of £1-99
for 10 cards and envelopes.
The Birthday sentiment, and the daisies, are a
snippet left over from a Hunkydory freebie
from a craft magazine.
I added some micro beads to the center of the daisies.
The ribbon,and the butterfly button are from the works, and the other butterflies my sister sent me.

Thank you for your visit, time, and putting up
with my moaning today.
Hopefully my internet will allow me to visit
you.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

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

Thank you so much for your visit, and the 
wonderful comments you make.
I am chuffed that you spare your precious time
visiting me.

It's my little Great Granddaughter's 6th Birthday
in 4 days time, and this is what I made her.

The girl in the Onesie was a digi I bought from
The Pink Gem Website.
On opening my Tizzy CD to print the papers
inside I spotted this bedroom image, so I 
decided to put her into a bedroom scene.
I decoupaged the chest of drawers, the end of 
the bed, the covers on the bed, and the image of
the girl in her Onesie PJs.
The letter for her name, and the today were 
printed from the same CD.
The number six is from my stash.

A GEM OF ACHALLENGE CARD

Hi and welcome to my very talented friends,

Thank you so much for your visit, and the lovely
comments you make.
I very much appreciate everyone you make.

Well I wanted to join in at the Gem of a challenge
this fortnight, and they want to see creations with
sweet treats on.
So while looking in their web site I found this
delightful digi card to download for the bargain 
of £1-25, and, as I fell in love with the image,
bought it.
It has just few little tweaks of mine on it such 
as the butterfly, the flower, and some lace 
around the sentiment.





This is a 8"x8" size card.
The digi card design is from the Pink Gem 
Website.
I urge you to take a look at their lovely images,
if you don't already do so, as they are very 
lovely, and fab value for money.
Just added the Lemon card to the base, and used
a green Promarker round the edges.
Flower, button, butterfly, and lace from my 
crafty stash.
I also added some stickles to the flame on the
candle, and the icing on the cupcakes, and 
decoupaged the image.

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

BLUE AND PINK GRANDDAUGHTER BIRTHDAY CARD

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends,
and visitors.
I am so sorry I didn't manage to comment yesterday, as I had visitors all day, and was so
tired after they left.

I do hope everyone is having a lovely Bank 
Holiday weekend.
The weather in my part of Kent is dull, but dry.
So I do hope it's a little bit better wherever you
may live, and you have some nice sunshine.

Today I have a card I made for my Daughter to
give her Granddaughter who is 6 in 8 days time.
I was looking for a image at Pink Gems web
and spotted this one which looks a lot like her.





This is a 8"x8" size card.
The image is a new one I have just bought. 
It's pre-coloured one from Pink Gem Designs.
You also get one to colour in too.
The papers are also a new buy, digi ones
 bought at the Pink Gem Design website, and a bargain.
I cut out lots of SB Parisian Accents for round
the edge of the card, and the corners.
 I used Spun Sugar DI around the oval shape, 
and the sentiment.
I used the long edge die to go round my oval shape to give it nice edge.

Thank you for your visit, and the wonderful
comments you make.
I so much appreciate everyone that you make.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.
