Easy as 1, 2, 3 over at Lili's Little Fairies!

This week over at the fairies we would like to see creations using 1 IMAGE, 2 DESIGN PAPERS and 3 EMBELLISHMENTS/TYPE OF EMBELLISHMENT. I went for 3 types of embellishment - I'm too hormonal to go cold turkey on card trimmings!!

The image and sentiment are both LOTV and the flowers are from WOC.

We are sponsored this week by the lovely ladies over at Dreamees who are giving away a £10 voucher. A little birdie told me that they are launching new Christmas stamps tomorrow - it'll definitely be worth a look!
Hope that you're well and having a great week. It's my daughter's class assembly this afternoon; can't wait!

Big hugs, Jayne xx

A little bit of Frou Frou!

I've had these Crafter's Companion Frou Frou stamps for ages but have only just got around to using them. I have too many stamps and too much choice! This 'Martini Girl' set of stamps is my favourite from the range - I just love the sentiment!
The image is so large I decided that the only way forward was an 8"x8" card - giving me plenty of room for a nice big bow. The papers are a bit of a hotch potch from my stash. I coloured the image with copics and then showered it with glitter!!
It was my daughter's sports day yesterday - one of those where they do lots of different activities rather competitive races. After two hours on my feet my back was killing me, I had under the bump pain and my poor legs were like big fat swollen sausages!!!! The good news, though, is that last weeks growth scan was much better than one before so I avoided a row with the consultant. For the time being anyway!!!

I'll be back on Thursday with the Lili's Little Fairies DT card - we've had some beautiful entries for the In The Garden challenge :D  Big hugs, Jayne xx

Father's Day/Male themed card over at the Joanna Sheen Challenge Blog.

Thanks to all who played the last challenge; we had some really stunning entries. This fortnight we are wanting to see your Father's Day or Male themed cards. I was sent this sheet of decoupage from the new Jayne Netley Mayhew Summer decoupage pack. In all honesty I had a bit of a hissy fit, cut it out and then pushed it about the table for a few days!!!!! It's a lovely image, as are all the designs in the set, but I just had a total mental block on what to do with it.
I have used a real hotch potch of backing papers - no idea where the stripes are from but the mottled paper in the background is from the Glynn Williams 'Times Gone By' CD from Sheenie Towers. The green paper I embossed with one of the Die'sire 8"x8" embossing folders.

I'm not that happy with how this turned out but, with growth scans and swollen legs, I've got bigger problems!!! Hey ho.

As usual we have candy up for grabs and a £15 Joanna Sheen voucher for the lucky winner. I hope you get the chance to play along - for a chance to win that voucher if nothing else!!

Super big hugs, Jayne xxx

Get Well Soon over at Lili's Little Fairies

Thank you to everyone who played along last week - we had some really stunning entries :)

This week at Lili's Little Fairies it's 'Get Well Soon'. I tend only to make birthday cards so am always in a flat spin when someone wants a thank you or get well card in super quick time! I keep promising to make a stash of occasions cards - really must give that a bash!

Here's my effort for this week:
After selling this stamp on ebay I decided I really liked the image and have been cross with myself for selling it ever since! Sometimes, I'm just plain nuts!!
Obviously the image and sentiment are from LOTV and I've coloured with copics.

Hope you get the chance to play along this week, hugs, Jayne xx

Something Sweet over at A Little Bit Crafty!

So sorry for the late post - I've been off-line again :(  My technical issues are not yet over but I'm trying to remain calm (with the occasional rant!!!!). So, we have three great sponsors this month and a fab challenge; what more enticement could you need?
2 stamps of your choice
7 free digis

£15 voucher

My offering this month is the birthday card that my husband commissioned me to make for my own birthday! I love making my own cards - that way I can be assured that I will get cards that focus on my better points - few though they are :) Hehehe. I really love this Ice Cream and Pickles digi from Saturated Canary and it's perfect for my mahoosive pregnant self at the moment!!
The papers are from a Melissa Frances pad but I'm down to the last straggly bits of it so I don't know which one it is. The flowers and ribbon are from WOC and I've used those beautiful Memory Box hearts again!

I apologise for my late post. Hope that you're having a great weekend - I've been painting the nursery and assembling Ikea furniture !!! We must be nearly finished - surely? Biggest of hugs, Jayne xx
