I am going to enter my Carousel into the docrafts - Anything Goes Challenge
Good afternoon everyone, I hope you are having a good day so far. Once again it is a beautiful day here in Renfrew, again the sun is shining but it is still cold, but as I said yesterday at least Spring is on its way. I am going to enter the following card into - Imagine That! Digis by Kris on their very first Progressive Freebie Challenge. The image was provided by Imagine That! and I decided that I would colour it in first with Promarkers and then go over the top with embossing powder, something a bit different. It did work quite well, but this was just the first time that I tried it, so I think I will try it on different images also. Jen :-)

Good morning everyone, I hope you all had a wonderful Saturday and are looking forward to a nice relaxing Sunday. Unfortunately, my Sunday has to be taken up with ironing !!!! YEUCH Not exactly my favourite pastime, but if it doesn't get done, we will be walking about with towels round us. Not so good, so I better make an attempt at doing at least some of it, before I start crafting today. Well I have just put together a Christmas card, yup Christmas, for a challenge. I am going to enter it into The Outlawz Sunday Clean and Simple Challenge. I just love the clean lines that Pan Pastels produces, it can be so easy to do. As even if you make a mistake using Pan Pastels you can rub it out with an 'eraser', as simple as that. You don't need to start all over from the start, just rub it out and fix your mistake. Hoping you all have a wonderful Sunday and I will be back at a later date. lol Thank you for popping by. Jen xx

I am disappearing for a while, as I have just been asked to make 2 cards for my son's friend. He wants me to make Birthday Cards for his mum and his favourite aunt. They have both to be very special, he has given me an idea of what he is looking for, only hope that I can come up with what he is looking for. So for the time being, I am going away to craft for a while and maybe even get one of the cards finished today. He wants these cards for next Saturday, luckily for him I don't have any other cards waiting to be made so I can concentrate all my time on the ones that he wants. Then I really have to get my digi images coloured for the CDAC challenge (again). :-( Christopher had decided that he was going to help me out with some cleaning of the house as I haven't been keeping too well of late. So anyway, he decided that he was going to start in the living room, which he did and he made a lovely job of the cleaning. Although, horror of horrors, he put the digi images that I had just about finishing colouring in into the bin as he thought they were rubbish!!!! AAAARRRGGGHHH!!! As I am really only a newbie when it comes to colouring in, it had taken me quite a while to colour in the three images that I had, so now I need to do them all from the beginning, but I need to do the cards for his friend first. I could gladly "kill" my son (haha), but I won't as he did make a good job of the cleaning, so I will let him off for the time being. Goodbye for now and I hope to see you here soon. Jen xx
I hope that you like my new little card that I have created. I am entering it into: The Outlawz - Friday's Copic/Promarker Challenge - Anything Goes I (love) Promarkers Challenge - Four Legged Friends
Good morning everyone, I hope that you all have a wonderful weekend, whether it is totally relaxing and doing nothing at all or crafting all weekend. I am intending doing a bit of both, variety is the spice of life. In the meantime, I want to enter the following creation into Raise the Bar Challenge : in honour of February 26th, also known as National Carnival Day.
Good evening everyone, I hope that someone is about tonight. lol I am also going to enter the card Good Friends into the Paper Ala Mode - 23 Feb - 1st March - Anything Goes Challenge I know that I have posted this card before, but I keep forgetting what challenges I am entering into and I have forgotten to say where it is going. Sorry about this, I will get used to working out my blog eventually. Thank you for stopping by. Jen :-)

I am entering the card below into the Crafters Digital Art Center - Anything Goes Challenge
Good morning everyone, I am sorry that I haven't been about lately. I haven't been too well and have been leaving well alone with the blog posts and the challenges etc. I am hoping to get back onto posting more regularly and putting up more cards. This one was done for my Uncle who was very sick in hospital, but now he is home thankfully. I just like the simplicity of this card, there really wasn't much to it but it says it all. I sent this to a friend of mine who was feeling a bit down. This was done as (obviously) a Mother's Day card. lol I am entering the above four cards into the "Spring Colours, Yellow, Green and Orange" challenge over at the Kraftyhands Challenge. I apologise, I have not set out the cards properly in the blogger for the cards to sit correctly. I am still learning a lot about blogging, so I will learn from my mistakes. Thank you for popping by and checking out what I have posted. Jen

Good morning everyone, today is going to be a day spent with my Promarkers after I have made a box envelope for an engagement card and I also need to finish my card which I am entering into the competition at my local craft shop. I have a few images to colour in which I hope to enter into challenges if I can get round to it. I never seem to get things right when I am entering into challenges, as I forget what challenges I have entered into. Maybe if someone could give me some tips on the best way to keep track of challenges that I am entering, that would be a great help to me. I am also going to get my ebosser today and I can't wait. I will be embossing and die-cutting like something demented once I get this. I'm so excited. Well I will sign off for now and will come back later on today. Have a great day - crafting or whatever else you may be doing. Jen xx

I am also going to enter this one into the same challenge
So for tonight, I am going to sign off and will probably see you at some point tomorrow. Jen :-) x
Hi everyone I just thought I would tell you that I won a giveaway in the Creative Cardmaking magazine. I was so pleased when the postman came to my door this morning, I just couldn't wait to open it. I won 3 CD's and they are Tumble Ted Pastimes Collection CD Rom 1, Tumble Tizzy Pastimes Collection and Tumble Ted & Tizzy Pastimes Digi Stamp Collection. I have been looking through the CD's all day and there will certainly be plenty of cards for me to start making.
I also meant to let you all know that I won a challenge over on Docrafts last week and I won ribbon and paper which was a nice surprise also.
I am also hoping to have my new Ebosser within the next couple of weeks and I can't wait, I am like a child who is waiting for her birthday or Christmas to come round. Watch this space. See you all soon, thanks for popping by and I hope that you all have a wonderful Saturday night whether it be watching the TV or having a couple of aperatifs. Take care everyone. Jen xx
Good morning everyone. I hope you are looking forward to a restful Saturday or one with a lot of creations going on. I am going to a craft fair this morning if I can get myself organised. I had a really bad night last night and I am still in my "jammies" lol. My friend is coming at 11.00am so I better get a shift on as it is 10.00am. I must admit I really cannot be bothered (don't tell her though), then I will be back home to finish off a few cards which I have got started. I am going to enter my creation below into the Paper a la mode challenge over at the Outlawz.
I hope you all like my carousel. It was great to make and lovely to see it finished. Have a good Saturday. Jen :-) x

Hi everyone, I hope that you are all having a great day. I am just having a 5 minute coffee break from my usual daily chores which normally take me all day, so just thought I would give you a little update on my excitement for the day. lol I am going to put all my Valentine's Day cards with their envelopes and into their polythene bags as one of my friends Karen is going to take a few into her work with her to sell for me. My diary is starting to fill up with cards to make for people, so really it is all systems go for me at the moment. I have got two cards to make for this weekend, and I was only asked about it 10 minutes ago - nothing like short notice. I don't mind though as they are for my very special friend. We grew up together and love each other like sisters. So I better get the housework finished, Valentine cards in their bags and start on the cards. In the meantime though, I am going to enter this card into the "Anything Goes" challenge over on Crafters Digital Arts Center. I will probably enter into a couple of challenges.
I hope you like my Birthday Cake. Thanks for popping by. Jen x

Just to let you all know, I am entering my 'froggy' card into another challenge, over at 613 Avenue Create. I seem to be putting cards everywhere. lol Hope you all have a great day.
Good morning everyone, I hope you have a wonderful day. I wakened up this morning to a lovely white street, everything looked so clean. Yesterday we had every season possible in the one day, there was torrential rain, galeforce winds, hailstones that were the size of golfballs, well maybe not quite - ping pong balls and snow. It was definately a day for staying home, which is was what I did. So onto today, I am entering this card into the Monday Greetings Card challenge over at "The Outlawz". I will probably enter a few more challenges today after I have done what I need to do.
I hope you like my card, and thanks for popping by. Jen x
