Bellarific Friday!

Yay! It's Friday :-) This sure feels like the longest week EVER! There was a sketch to follow this week at stamping bella's 'Bellarific Friday' challenge and this was my entry.
The yummy scrummy papers are 'Romance and Roses' from NitWit Collections. The image is Uptown Girl Bubbles loves her bubbly. The lettering is form a Docrafts stamp set I've had forever and never used. Shame on me.
I wish I had time to have a relaxing bath. I always seem to have a child hammering on the door wanting to show me what 'awesome' creation she has made on Minecraft!!

Please accept my apologies for not visiting your blogs this week. I feel really run down and exhausted. I will do much better next week. Hugs, Jayne xx

Graduation Day!

Gosh, I'm feeling rubbish today! I ache everywhere and have a runny nose. I think an early night is required.
I made this ages ago and barely remember it! It's definitely a Penny Black stamp and the beautiful papers are from the French Lavender collection from Docrafts.
Aww doesn't little Hedgey look chuffed :-)

Big hugs, Jayne x

Birthday chores :-)

Another with Lily Love Laundry. Sorry, I can't help it, I love this stamp :-)
I am miles behind with everything today - , laundry, ironing, housework, card making. If there was a gold medal for failing at the basics I would win it today!!!

The beautiful papers are a new set called Sew Fitting from NitWit Collections and the flower was made using a Die-Namics die set.
I can't even spell today. I think I'll have a cup of tea and re-group ;-)

Hope you had a fab weekend. Hugs, Jayne xx

Bellarific Friday.

Today's card was made for the Bellarific Friday challenge, which came with photo inspiration.
The image is Madison has a Margarita and the papers are Wild Rose Studio, Letters From Paris.
Oooh, I can't get that pesky image centred! Anyhoo, this is the inspiration for the card!
Indigo wanted to play along too. . . .
Right, it's the school run and then me and the tiddly one are off to dance class. Altogether now . . 'If you're happy and you know it clap your hands  . . . . '

Have a super day. Byeeeeeee. Jayne xx

Brain fade!

I keep forgetting to mention that I have a Pinterest Board now - is that even what you call it? Thank you Coops for following :-) 
Have I posted this? Gosh, I so can't remember! I trawled through my posts and couldn't find it so I'm hoping it's new :-) It's a box I made for the card further down in the post - it was for one of the magazine Cardmaking competitions but I can't remember which one. Do you see a theme here?
Love this little LOTV church. I've teamed it with the NitWit collection Romance and Roses paper - it seemed an obvious choice :-)

I made a page book style card to go with it again using the Romance and Roses papers with a Magnolia image.

Hmm, this is a little 'death by photo'. I apologise. It was the annual parent/teacher meeting today and my brain is fried.
I used the Wild Rose Studio wedding cake stamp on the inside.

And finally this is the beautiful card Indigo made for me for Mother's Day :-) Just scrumptious.
I need a lie down in a darkened room now! Hope that you're having a fab week. It's nearly Friday :-) Thank you for stopping by. Hugs, Jayne x

Oriental Delight!

As soon as I saw these papers in my local craft shop I knew I had to have 'em!! Yum scrum :-) They are from Kaisercraft's Cherry Blossom collection and are super pretty! I thought that they were perfect to use with the LOTV 'Aimi with lantern' stamp.
I have used WOC flowers and dragonfly/butterfly dies from Joanna Sheen. I still haven't managed to get hold of nice lace so I'm scrabbling about my ribbon box for scraps!
Hope that you had a great weekend. Sending hugs, Jayne xx

When the going gets tough . . .

. . . the tough eat scones!! Oh dear. The diet is in tatters! It's been a tricky week and I'm super tired. After the school run I've been hitting the bun shop! Must do better!!!!

Enough of my diet woes. Today I'm using a sketch from Bellarific Friday. The image is 'Lily Loves Laundry' from Stampingbella and the papers are ancient Wild Rose Studio (Letters From Paris). I made the card in super quick time last night - one of those last minute emergencies.

Maybe I should do some skipping? That burns lots of calories. Maybe after a cup of tea ;-)
Thank you so much for stopping by it means such a lot. Super big thanks to my new followers :-)

Sending hugs; it's nearly Friday :-)  Hugs, Jayne xxx
