Facebook LOTV Challenge - Sketch

Have you joined in the sketch Challenge over on the LOTV Facebook page yet? There's still plenty of time :-)

This month it's a sketch which, I think, can be a bit daunting. I have to admit that I was a bit panicked when I saw it!!! Anyhoo, it turned out fine in the end (once I turned the sketch upside down!!).
I just love this 'Annabel Camping' stamp - and that dog is just the bees knees! I had a bit of a strop at one point with the background but I get faffing until I just about averted disaster. Sorry, it's been one of those weeks!

There are some fab prizes up for grabs and I hope that you get the chance to play along. Hugs, Jayne xx

White on White at Winter Wonderland

Gosh, I made this and then nearly forgot to post it! D'oh!!

I've used my new Memory Box Country Landscape die which I bought for an upcoming class. It's super versatile and I love it.
I really can't get the hang of photographing WOW :-(

What busy jobs?

Hmmm, so this is what I made on Friday when I should have been getting on with a mountain of 'busy' jobs!!! Oh dear - I have no self control! In my defence I was trying out the die in the hope that I could come up with something for a class. So it was work. Sort of!

The die is the petite striplet - jubilee- die from Creative Expressions and I've teamed it up with the Belle of the Ball stamp also from Creative Expressions. I really love the red and white :-)
I coloured the dress with copics and then covered it in spectrum noir clear sparkle pen.
It's a bit different for me but I enjoyed making it.

Isabelle Loves Ice Cream :-)

Mmm, oooh, I sure could do with an ice cream like that :-) My diet is soooo not going well! I made this card for the Stampingbella 'Bellarific Friday' birthday wishes challenge. I've used Isabelle Loves Ice Cream and the Craftwork Cards 'More than Words' collection.

I coloured this up months ago and shoved it in the bottom of my stamping box because I didn't think it was good enough to use. Then I realised that most non crafters don't really mind how something is coloured - if it's all in the lines then it's fine :-) So I'm using it!
I used some spectrum noir sparkle pen on the ice cream.

Purple poinsettia!

So, I started this card last November, did a bit last week and finally finished it yesterday!!!! The photo isn't very good - apologies.
I used all manner of Sue Wilson dies and a random flourish die (I've lost the packaging!)
I pasted the poinsettia with a spectrum noir clear sparkle pen :-)

This is a wedding card that I made for a friend to give her sister. The stamp is from LOTV and the papers are 'Romance and Roses' from NitWit Collections.

A sad goodbye to my beautiful boy

We finally had to say goodbye to our beautiful fur baby on Monday evening. The sudden onset of an eye condition on Monday, coupled with the advancing cancer and heart disease, forced us to make the heartbreaking decision.

He was, like me, built for comfort. And eating. And snuggling up on the sofa. Had he been a man, I would most definitely have married him! He was my constant companion for nearly 11 years and I loved him completely. Our hearts are broken and we miss him terribly but I feel so incredibly fortunate to have had such an amazing friend in my life.

I am very grateful to all of you who have left messages of support over the last few months. Jayne xxx
