Isabelle Loves Ice Cream :-)

Mmm, oooh, I sure could do with an ice cream like that :-) My diet is soooo not going well! I made this card for the Stampingbella 'Bellarific Friday' birthday wishes challenge. I've used Isabelle Loves Ice Cream and the Craftwork Cards 'More than Words' collection.

I coloured this up months ago and shoved it in the bottom of my stamping box because I didn't think it was good enough to use. Then I realised that most non crafters don't really mind how something is coloured - if it's all in the lines then it's fine :-) So I'm using it!
I used some spectrum noir sparkle pen on the ice cream.

Purple poinsettia!

So, I started this card last November, did a bit last week and finally finished it yesterday!!!! The photo isn't very good - apologies.
I used all manner of Sue Wilson dies and a random flourish die (I've lost the packaging!)
I pasted the poinsettia with a spectrum noir clear sparkle pen :-)

Romance and Roses

This is a wedding card that I made for a friend to give her sister. The stamp is from LOTV and the papers are 'Romance and Roses' from NitWit Collections.

A sad goodbye to my beautiful boy

We finally had to say goodbye to our beautiful fur baby on Monday evening. The sudden onset of an eye condition on Monday, coupled with the advancing cancer and heart disease, forced us to make the heartbreaking decision.

He was, like me, built for comfort. And eating. And snuggling up on the sofa. Had he been a man, I would most definitely have married him! He was my constant companion for nearly 11 years and I loved him completely. Our hearts are broken and we miss him terribly but I feel so incredibly fortunate to have had such an amazing friend in my life.

I am very grateful to all of you who have left messages of support over the last few months. Jayne xxx

Bellarific Friday

Here is a Christmas card inspired by a sketch over at Bellarific Friday and the ABC Christmas Challenge of H is for Hats.
The image is Uptown Girl Three Amigas and the papers are from the Range (Deco Time Cardboard Patterns).

Pink Christmas hats :-)

I'm combining two challenge themes for today's card. Winter Wonderland want to see pink or blue cards and ABC Christmas Challenge want to see Christmas hats.
These pretty papers (NitWit Collections Holiday Bouquet Collection) are a lovely shade on pink in real life - don't know why they're so washed out in the picture.
Ahh, just love LOTVs James :-)

Up, Up and Away :-)

I put this card on Facebook and then forgot to blog it - dopey!!! I've used a Dreamees stamp set for the sentiment and balloons (and some shrink plastic :-) )
I used some acetate and alcohol inks for the background - it's been ages since I used alcohol inks.
I'm off to make a Christmas card!!

Thank you for stopping by, hugs, Jayne xx
