It's challenge time over at Jellypark Friends Challenge Blog

Time flies when you're having fun and oh my the weeks are flying in, so I must be having lots of fun :o).
 We have a new challenge over at the jellypark friends challenge blog.
The theme is stars. I was spoilt for choice over in the jellypark store for images to use for this theme. I chose a recent new release image for a new baby.
The backing paper is a digital download from Jessica Sprague and I printed co-ordinated papers and cut star shapes for the background. I coloured the image with promarkers.
Claire is also releasing two new images today, so pop on over to the challenge blog for a look at what the DT have come up with using them.
Happy Crafting.

Jellypark Friends new releases and latest challenge

"I'm hungry", not really, I've just had my breakfast ;o), but that's the theme of the latest challenge over at the Jellypark Friends Challenge Blog.
We would like to see all of your foody related makes and linking them up to the challenge blog will give you the chance of winning a jellypark digi stamp from the jellypark store.
My group got to work with the latest new release images. I love this one it is so flexible. It comes with the words Anniversary or Birthday. Alas I am now one year on from receiving a card with that number on but they do say life begins at 40 and I can't grumble so far :o).
I chose to couple it with the words Today. I coloured it with promarkers and then dotted it with a white gel pen, it doesn't show up very well in the photo. I printed out the little flower embellishments then cut them out and glittered them up, I do love a bit of glitter, especially at his time of year. The digi image is available from today, here. There is also a very cute little rabbit image, I do love Claire's rabbit images.
I'm off to make some paper flowers for another project which I will share soon.
Happy Crafting Folks.

My latest makes and not a piece of card in sight :o)

I've been busy making my Decorations for Generations over the last week. I love this time of year with the lead up to Christmas. The kids are already starting to get excited :o).
One day I would love to go to a winter market in Germany. I spent the first 4 years of my life living in Germany so a lot of my inherited Christmas decorations are from there. I guess that's where my love of decorations stems from. I really want to visit and add to my collection.
Here are a few of my latest makes.

I've just finished a cute little Christmas pudding which I will be photographing tomorrow. All of the above are available from my Etsy Store.
Happy Crafting Folks.

New release Charity Image from Jellypark

Hello peeps :o)
I'm here to tell you about a wonderful new image available from the Jellypark Store here all the money from the sales of the image will go to Breakthrough breast cancer.
The design team all got busy with the image and we sent our fabulous DT co-ordinator Jennifer some cards in the hope they would cheer her up through her horrible radiation treatment. They have been arriving each day and every one had some crafty stash inside.
This is the card I made for Jennifer.

and this is the card I made including the jellypark ribbon charity image which Claire released a couple of weeks ago.

Happy Crafting

Jellypark Challenge Time - Back to nature

Hello peeps :o).
Oh my the weeks are flying in, it'll soon be Christmas :oO.
I have both my kids and numerous friends and families birthdays to deal with first though, it's an expensive time!


There's a new challenge over at Jellypark Friends Challenge Blog and this time round we're going back to nature. We'd love to see projects featuring animals, leaves, trees etc.

I made an animal tag with this brand new release available from today in the Jellypark Store isn't it just adorabubble. I've been using brown paper to wrap up presents lately and then jazzing it up with nice ribbons and handmade tags. This one is going on a birthday gift.
I cut out a tag shape from some kraft card and then cut some decorative paper and layered it up I had a roll of self adhesive lace which co-ordinated really well so I put a strip along the bottom. I attached an eyelet and ribbon then coloured up the giraffe with my promarkers and added some pretty leaves and paper rose heads.
I stamped a To: and From: on the back.

I'll be back with more cards soon as I've been a busy bee lately :o)
Happy Crafting.
