Dress Shoppe!

This is my first card using the NitWit Collections 'Dress Shoppe' design set.
I've used the Sue Wilson bow die and the Die-namics petal die. The mannequin is from the Digi stamp boutique and is the dress and mannequin set. I first saw the digi stamp over at Lorraine's blog and when a friend asked me for a card with a pretty dress on I knew where to go! Hmm, Mrs B's blog costs me a small fortune :-)
Right, I've got to go as it's parent drop in morning at school.

Thank you so much for stopping by, I really appreciate it!  Hugs, Jayne x

One design paper over at Crafty Little Fairies!

Oooh, I struggled with this one and I'm not happy with the results. Ho hum. I'm just not feeling crafty at all at the moment.  I think most of us go through this kind of phase but mine has lasted quite a while!
Anyhoo, the snowman stamp is from Kanban and is very old but I'm pretty sure it's the first time I've used it! Naughty girl!

I hope that you get the chance to join us, we have lots of crafty prizes up for grabs. Biggest of hugs, Jayne xxx

BOO! over at A Little Bit Crafty.

This month we've come over all spooky at A Little Bit Crafty. The title of the challenge is Boo! So I'm thinking Halloween or a card with an element of surprise is the way to go. This is my offering - I avoided the challenge all together for most of the month and then made it in a mad rush a couple of days ago!
I found the image right at the last minute but just loved it the minute I saw it. It's a Wee digi stamp and was a bargain at £1.85 :-) I'm lacking in the orange copic department so this is the best I could do. The papers are DCVW. I've gone all CAS because I have no Halloween embellishments!!
We have fabulous prizes up for grabs so I hope that you get the chance to join us. 

We had a meeting with my daughter's class teacher and the Special Needs Co-ordinator last week and I am hopeful that things improve. So far this week has been good for her and we've had no tears. I hate sending an unhappy child to school and am praying that things get better.

Thank you for stopping by, I love it when you do! Hugs, Jayne x

High Heels!

I think that this is the quickest card I've ever made due to the fact someone asked me for a card with high heels and they needed it NOW! Thank goodness for Bugaboo digistamps :)

I teamed the heels with the Kitsch papers from Craftwork Cards. The die namics flower die saved the day with matching flowers!
The colouring is a little ropey but it was done at lightning speed.

Thank you for stooping by. Biggest of hugs, Jayne x

Who's up for another Christmas card?

The Christmas card making is now in full swing :-) I'm really going to make an effort this year - no last minute trips to the Card Factory for me!
I think that this digi is called 'Gift of Time Together'. I first saw it when lovely Lorraine from Mrs B's blog sent me a Christmas card using it - and what a stunner of a card it was!
It's the Snow Princess and Snow Princess Too papers again! Firstly, I love the papers and secondly, I have run out of paper and this is the only stuff I have printed off!!!!!
For some reason my CAS cards always look more unfinished than CAS but I'm trying.

I'm entering the card into the following:
Without Words - It's a Celebration challenge

It's the start of a new school week and I have my fingers crossed for a better day for my little girl. I have sent in a letter for the teacher and hope we can work together to change things for the better. Here's hoping  . . . .

Hugs, Jayne x

The Great Penguin Challenge 2014 - card number 3!

So this is my third and last card for the Great Penguin Challenge of 2014 now running on Squirrel's blog. I had meant to post this yesterday but ran out of time!

This is a really old Crafter's Companion SWALK image - but I love it and it's a lovely one to colour. The papers are from the Snow Princess and Snow Princess Too  collections from NitWit Collections. I've used the Arboscello Tree die from Memory Box - partly because it has been much neglected lately.
I must go and try and get an early night. My little girl is really very unhappy in her new class at school and I'm struggling with the teacher. I shall persevere - I just hope we can have a week without tears :(

Thank you for coming to see me! Biggest of hugs, Jayne x

Have you entered the Great Penguin Challenge 2014?

Over on the very lovely, yet slightly crackers, Squirrel blog there is, now running, the Great Penguin Challenge of 2014. Have you entered? It's been super fun and such a great idea :)

All you need to do is make a card featuring penguins. Simples!! So, this is my second penguin card (I have a further one to come - yep, Squirrel has sent me penguin loopy!!)
I just love the shape of these Craftwork Cards card blanks (thank you Annette!) The image is LOTV and the papers are 'Snow Princess' and 'Snow Princess Too' from NitWit Collections. The sentiment is from a free set of stamps that came  with the latest copy of Simply Cards and Papercraft.

Apologies for being a very bad blogger lately. The start of a new school year for those of us with children who have any type of additional needs always seems to be fraught.I'm not sure if it's just this particular school but we all seem to be fighting the same battles this year as last. And the year before that :(  Onwards and upwards :)
Hoping that you are having a fab week and  have a great weekend. We are hoping to get to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park. Thank you for stopping by, hugs, Jayne xx
