MOVING ALONG WITH THE TIMES DT..............CHRISTMAS ANIMALS


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

Sorry I have been away so long from my blog it has been a very busy time for me with the Bazaar looming.

Today starts another fortnights challenge for the
It's the B Teams turn again and I am the host for the challenge this time around, and I would like to see Christmas Animals on your super entries please.
The challenge runs from 23/11/17 to Wednesday the 6/12/17 , and closes at 6PM on that day.
So here is my DT card I made.



This is a 6"x6" size card.
I used a mixture of 6"x6" papers for this card.
The base paper had those lovely mandalas on it so I cut a few out and glued them to the front of the card.

I do hope you can find time to visit the challenge, and see the wonderful creations my Team friends have created, and hopefully find the time enter. 

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

MORE CHRISTMAS TREE ORNAMENTS


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

I live in a bungalow in a sheltered housing complex which has flats on the site too, and we are having a Christmas Bazzar in December so I am busy thinking, and making things ready for it.
I found this tutorial on U Tube HERE
for making pipe cleaner candy cane tree ornaments.
Now I couldn't find the right size beads she used, in my area so I went with smaller children's ones.
Hope you think they look alright.

  
I love the red , and green ones, but couldn't find more of those colour beads.
One green one I did put 2 beads in between which worked quite well.

Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

CHRISTMAS TREE ORNAMENT


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

Sorry I have been missing this week, but my Daughter was on leave from her work, and so my Daughter, Granddaughter, and myself had a lovely week shopping and doing lots of lovely things together.
I managed quite a bit of C,shopping with their lovely help too. 
So then I had a lot of house work to catch up on that got left out.

In between I was watching U Tube on how to make Christmas Ornaments as I had to make a DT project for the MAWTT Christmas Challenge that was anything except a card.
So here is the second ornament I made yesterday.
For anyone that is interested in making one of these HERE is the link.







This is my version of her wonderful ornament.
I didn't have the shower ring she used so I used a few layers of card, and wrapped my ribbon around.
There is a Snippet of Acetate on the image that doesn't show in the photo.
Also I used up lots of Snippets to make this including the image, and the back embossed card, so I will be joining my playground friends with this.
The poinsettia die I won on the playground years ago.

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

80th BIRTHDAY CARD AND BOX


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

Been looking after my Granddaughter today as she doesn't go back to school till tomorrow.
She is my youngest Granddaughter.
We also had lunch with my eldest Granddaughter today, and her mother my Daughter.
 Before we went to lunch my youngest Granddaughter wanted to make cards.

Fingers crossed Win 10 seems to be behaving today thankfully.

Last week I was asked to make a card for my Daughter's boss who is Welsh, and in Wales we call our Mum Mam.
So here is the card and box I made her.




This is a 8"x8" size card and box I made to fit.
Now the order was for Lavender Colours and I didn't have any Lavender card so I sprayed my card with Tattered Angels Mica spray to get the colour I was after.
As the lady in  question  loves handbags and flowers my Daughter suggested to cascade the flowers down the handbag.
I am quite pleased with how it turned out.
The letters were made by gluing 3 lots of each letter to make them stand out nicely.
Put some ribbon on the handle of the bag to represent a scarf.
Hope you like this as much a I do.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

DRY EMBOSSED CHRISTMAS CARD


Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
Did you remember to put your clocks back last night.

Now is anyone having problems with their Win 10 since updates, mine is driving me mad it's so slow, also my mouse keeps freezing, and it keeps jumping all over the place while scrolling.
Also the typing is playing up as well.
So I am sorry if I haven't been around to comment as much as it it taking me so long to comment with all this.
I did turn updates off a while ago, but they came back on automatically.

So onto my card for the Allsorts Challenge.



This is a 6"x6" size card.
The embossing folder is a Crafters Companion one.
The image is from the Crafters Companion CD Nordic Christmas.
Verse inside is a stamped one.

Thank you so much for your visit, and your patience with my comments.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
