Merry Christmas and thank you!

This is a super quick card (if you don't count cutting out of the decoupage - really, pine trees are not designed for decoupage!!!!). The image and paper are from the Joanna Sheen House Mouse Christmas project book and CD, which I just love!

I hope that you have a fabulous Christmas and New Year! Thank you for your support this year, I've really appreciated all your lovely comments, words of wisdom and friendship. The biggest of hugs, Jayne xxx

Hot Chocolate and Marshmallows over at Saturated Canary

This is the one and only card I've mad for a week :(  I just can't get motivated! No crafting will get done today as I have the biggest pile of ironing to get through - I've avoided it long enough!

Over at Saturated Canary the challenge is 'Hot Chocolate and Marshmallows' so I went with a brown and pink theme. The image is 'Wendy'; the presence of a super cute dog makes this one of my favourites!

Apologies for the super wonky photo! The papers are First Edition 'Love Letters' collection and the beautiful crocheted flower is from the Range.

Right, this ironing is not going to get done by faffing about on the computer. I'm off to make a start; I may be some time! Keep warm, hugs, Jayne xxxx

All things bright and, erm, well bright really!

This colour scheme is a bit 'in yer face!' for me, but I'm trying out my new yellow copics again and decided to use my new 'Time for Tea' Nitwits collection too! I have only made one card in  over a week. It's too cold to craft and I'm super exhausted!

This image is the beautiful 'Ava' from Saturated Canary; she's one of my favourites. Must go, as I have a few commissions to make and I'm soooo tired I need to make a start before I nod off!!!!

Big hugs! Don't forget that there is candy here! Jayne xx

Lili's Little Fairies - Something new!

A nice easy peasy challenge this week - 'something new'. In my case it was very easy because I keep buying more stash!!! I've used the stamp I recently won on Squirrel's blog (thank you hun!). I used new Wild Rose Studio papers and I used my new yellow copics.

It's super cold and really foggy here today so I abandoned my power walk and have done the vacuuming instead :(  I'm too tired to craft so maybe I'll veg out and watch some CSI :) Blue Bloods is back tonight - super yeah!

Hope that you get the chance to join us this week. We're taking a break over the Christmas period to eat vast amounts of mince pies and cream and in my case huge plates of mashed potato. Diet resumes in January! Details of my blog candy are here. Big hugs, Jayne x

I'm colder than these penguins!

Seriously, just how cold is it? I ended up finishing my power walk in freezing rain yesterday!!! Super yuck. This morning it was so frosty it looked like I was walking a bed of crushed diamonds - beautiful but freezing! It's my daughter's school play this aft and I can't decide whether it's going to be boiling or freezing in the hall. Might put lots of layers on just in case!

This super cute stamp was give to me by fellow Fairy Lols - super big hugs hun! It's just the cutest thing. I've coloured it with copics and distressed with Tumbled Glass. The papers are from the Nitwits 'Joyful Hearts' Collection. Get my new Christmas Tree die - just how fantabulous is that? I am much taken with it! It's Dee's Distinctively snow covered stacker tree - something you don't want to try saying after a few beers!!!!!

I've left my cuppa downstairs so I'll go now and find some warmth! Hope you're having a great week. Hugs, Jayne xx

With Love at Christmas over at the Joanna Sheen Challenge Blog!

Huge thanks to everyone who entered the last challenge; the entries were amazing. It was my turn to pick a top 3 and I can't tell you how long it took me!!! In the end I managed to whittle it down to Alyce, Sassy and Chanelle whose cards and colouring just took my breath away. Absolutely stunning!

This fortnight the challenge is 'With Love at Christmas'. I struck lucky when Sheenie Towers sent me some scrumptious House Mouse Stamps!

I've used the XXL Go Kreate die again to make the card blank - sorry, I just love this shape! I've used Nitwit papers called Woodland Wishes. These papers are just the most fabulous collection of colours and patterns.

I hope very much that you get the chance to play along - check out the blog for prizes and candy!

Enjoy your Sunday and thank you for popping by. Hugs, Jayne xxs

Use 3 dies or punches over at Lili's Little Fairies

It's not my team's week at LLF but I took the opportunity to make another much needed Christmas card!

I love this Go Kreate XXL die - it's my favourite shape! I borrowed this stamp from my daughter's stash !! Don't tell though! I've used the fab Tim Holtz tattered poinsettia die, the die-namics flourish and numerous nesties!

I hope that you get a chance to play along this week.
The party last night was fine and Indigo fell asleep in super quick time when we got home - phew!
I've bought a couple of LOTV stamps to go in my blog candy and as soon as they arrive I'm good to go - as long as I can follow Squirrel's instructions to make a stcicky post!!!!!!

Big cold hugs, Jayne xxxx

Woohoo! You rock!

Yippee yae yay! At last I made it to 100 followers! Bless you - you've made my year! I'm really chuffed (can you tell?). So, when I learn how to make a post 'sticky' and I have some pennies I will post some candy to say thank you for being so kind :)

Another quick post because I'm practically falling asleep! This one is the lovely Butterfly Princess from Saturated Canary. I've coloured her with copics - well more wrestled than coloured!

The papers are from the Wild Rose 'Love Letters' pad.

Indigo is going to a party at a play gym tomorrow after school. It starts at half five and doesn't finish until half seven - way past her bedtime. Wish me luck - there may be tears and I have a hideous feeling they'll be mine!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Back tomorrow with a Lili's Little Fairies DT card. The biggest of hugs to everyone, Jayne xx

Hands up, who's cold?

This is going to be the world's quickest post as I am absolutely freezing and need to and huddle in front of the fire with a giant cup of tea!!

This is a super quick card - I'm running out of time and am just throwing cards together now!!!! It's never a good idea is it? Anyhoo, the image is LOTV and the papers are from Wild Rose Studio. The poinsettia is a recent buy - Tim Holtz for Sizzix 'Tattered Poinsettia'.

That's me, I'm off to find some heat!

Have a great day, big hugs, Jayne xxs
