Summer Challenge over at Crafty Ribbons

This week over at Crafty Ribbons our challenge is 'Summer'. I have used the Camping Van ribbon from the Summer Festival range. I think the stamp might have been free with Craft Stamper magazine many moons ago!!

I hope that you get the chance to play along with us this week

Hugs, Jayne xx

Add some sparkle

I'm playing along with the Winter Wonderland Challenge of Add Some Sparkle this week. I made this shaker card with an image from an LOTV Art Pad - oh, I do miss these pads! The beautiful papers are from a Papermania 'Home For Christmas' pad.
That's me for today. Hope you're having a great week. Hugs, Jayne

Crazy daisies

If you read my facebook post about this card you'll know that instead of having a lovely hour of crafting I ended up having 25 minutes of sloshing ink about in a haphazard manner!!! This was due to my inability to locate my aquamarkers which eventually turned up in my wardrobe!!
I've had these Polkadoodles Stamping Made Easy daisies for a week and really wanted to have a go with them. It's a little bright and I'll go for something a little more muted next time but I thought I'd share my first attempt :-)

Hope you're having a fabulous weekend. Hugs, Jayne xx

Red and aqua!

Hmm, this isn't my usual colour scheme preference but I so like these papers from the Range I couldn't resist!
I've teamed up this LOTV Calendar Fairy with these super yummy Deco Times papers and added plenty glitter for good luck :-) I think this might be the first time this stamp has seen ink - shame on me!
I don't know about you but I can't wait for the referendum to be over. It's just getting so unpleasant and at times utterly ridiculous (Nigel Farage and Bob Geldof having a war of words on boats on the Thames??? What????) What with that and the football I daren't turn my tv on! Seems like the perfect excuse to shut myself in the dining room to craft :-)
Oh, and I fell off the diet wagon. Again. Sigh.

Thank you for visiting. Sending hugs xxxx

Cupcake Cutie

I really wanted to play along at In The Pink and As You Like It this week but had no cupcake related image :-( So I had a quick look on Pinterest and saw this little cutie from Sherri Baldy's Besties collection. I bought this digi and a couple of others - seriously how hard was it not to go mad and buy a whole bunch???
I've teamed her up with the 'Butterfly Kisses' collection from NitWit Collections. Just love this kit with all its beautiful extra embellies. The pink with that zingy green is just yum :-)
I really need to get back to working on my colouring and these images are just great for that :-)

Thank you for stopping by. Hugs, Jayne xx

Today I have a card I made for the class I ran today at Samuel Taylors. It went really well and we all had a great day :-)

The balloons are from the Dreamer set of stamps from Bo Bunny. I teamed them up with Memory Box clouds and their Country Landscape die.

We used alcohol inks on acetate to colour the sky. Really chuffed with how this one turned out and so relieved the class went well.

Crafty Ribbons Weddings/Anniversary challenge

Morning! Gosh, it's been a bit scorchio this week hasn't it? Over at Crafty Ribbons this week our challenge is Weddings/Anniversarys.

I used this LOTV wedding stamp with papers from NitWit Collections (Cottage Garden).
I have used Congratulations ribbon in white and the beautiful Volcan Viscose lace also in white from the Crafty Ribbons shop.
I hope that you can join us this week. Hugs, Jayne x
