What, no embellishments!!!!!

I made this card for the lovely Squirrel's Without Words 'Modern Christmas' challenge. CAS cards bring me out in a rash, but it's important to keep giving them a go - the challenge does me good. Probably.

How funny is this image? I love it ;-) It's called Monster Christmas and is from the digi stamp boutique and is a super bargain at 99p. The papers are from the Polar Pals collection over at NitWit Collections.
My daughter found the card in my pile of finished cards and asked if I would send it to her for Christmas - what other seal of approval do I need!

My little girl has I hope now turned a corner and her chest infection is hopefully improving. I've never known her to be this poorly and it's been really stressful. Of course, now I have it :-(

I've put a ramshackle collection of craft items on ebay if you're interested!

Time for the school run. Biggest of hugs, thank you for popping by. Jayne xx

I'm entering this into:

ALBC Anything Goes - except Christmas!

Apologies for another super quick post - I was awake most of the night with my youngest daughter and am hoping to get her to the doctors this morning!

It is with a very heavy heart I have to tell you that this is the last ALBC challenge.  Sniffles all round. I must say a huge thank you to Paula for having me as part of her fabulous DT - I am very grateful. It has been such a happy time to be part of such a fabulous family.

This is my offering for the Anything Goes (except Christmas).
I made the Windmill using the Dreamees Templates and More 2 CD. This is such a fab set of projects and papers and I'm really grateful to Carol and Hayley for sending it to me. The papers are from the delish Romance and Roses collection from NitWits.
This was one of my entries for the Papercraft Essentials Cardmaker of the Year - it didn't wow the judges but it has to be the thing I have most enjoyed making this year and it reminded me of why I took up crafting in the first place.
I finished it off with a super cute Magnolia image.

Right, that's me. Fingers crossed I get a doctor's appointment.  Hope you can join us for this last ALBC challenge. Sniff. Sniff.  Hugs, Jayne xxx

A get well offering!

This was one of my entries for Crafter of the Year in Cardmaking and Papercraft. I love this little LOTV stamp and the papers from Raspberry Road Designs were perfect. I even treated myself to some (more) WOC flowers ;-)
I used some glossy accents on the puddle and in the 'medicine' bottle!
Excuse my 'death by photo' post!
I was really super chuffed to get runner up. Big congrats to my teamies who also came runner up. Not sure if they've announced it on their blogs so I won't name them. 

Biggest of hugs, Jayne xx

Dreamees on Create and Craft Today!

The ladies from Dreamees are on Create and Craft today with fab goodies at 2pm and 7pm :-)

This is a card I made from delish Dreamees goodies some while back. Sorry about the photos - this was with the old camera just before it died!

I used some WOW embossing powder and a scrummy pink ribbon and it was job done. Thank you for the good wishes regarding the joint pain I have at the moment. I tried some colouring yesterday and decided that colouring may not be an option for a while!
That's me for today. Hope you're having a great week. TGI Friday!!!

Hugs, Jayne xx

Over at Squirrel's blog we're just over half way with the Snow-vember challenge. Basically, we'd like to see cards with snow people/animals on them. Thank you to all who have entered - Squirrel's worked super hard and produced a mountain of snow creature cards :-)

Now, I've lost the packaging for this little fella - he's one of my oldest stamps, but I think he's from Personal Impressions.The fab paper is from the Polar Pals kit over at NitWit Collections.
My poor hands are super painful today - Carpal Tunnel and heaven knows what else. I'm not going to the doctor - I just don't want to know!! So I shall say goodbye for now. Hope you're having a great weekend. Biggest of hugs, Jayne x

Snow Princess Too!

I have only made 14 Christmas cards! I think that may well be the worst total ever at this point! Pitiful. I shall be heading to Card Factory. The shame.

This one is made using the beautiful Snow Princess Too papers from NitWit Collections.

I treated myself to Grand decorative labels One :-)  I've used the Spellbinders poinsettia die and the La La Land heart banner.
This is still one of my favourite LOTV images - she just looks lovely in any colour combo.
Thank you for visiting - I'm sending hugs. Jayne xxx
