Power Poppy Bouquet

Learning a new skill, I have decided, is a long job! I'm still going with the prismapencils. I like them far more than the Spectrum Noir colourblend pencils - they certainly seem creamier and easier to blend. I'm still new to them and am glad that I found the Kit and Clowder classes ;-) This is the September pencils class.

This was the September Copic class (image also from Power Poppy).
Can you imagine how much housework has gone undone! Lol!

Both cards have gone to ladies in my crafting class who had 'big' birthdays this month :-) Jayne xxx

Thoroughly Modern Misses

I made these cards using the new Thoroughly Modern Misses from LOTV :-)
The bottom two are Miss February :-)

Having such a busy (but fabulous) half term. I'll need a rest when the girls go back to school! Jayne xx

LOTV colour challenge on Facebook

Over on LOTV's FB page they are having a colour challenge. We want to see cards made with red, green and yellow. To join in follow this link :

My card features the Happy Reindeer:

I'm not usually fan of green but these papers are kinda growing on me!
Love this cute little stamp :-)

Hope you've had a great weekend - how can it be nearly Monday???? Jayne xx

Christmas Cutie

Nearly back to school time :-( My little one starts school this time - she's only just turned four and seems sooooo young! I'm sure she'll be fine - I'll feel better on Wednesday night when we've got day one done. The teacher has asked me to go in and help out with painting and in a moment of madness I said yes!

Today's card is using the free stamps you get with the Hunkydory magazine and the Christmas Cutie set. I tried to use some techniques I learnt from Kit and Clowder classes to help with the polar bear and reindeer although I confess to rushing the colouring as I needed to finish it!

Hope you're having a good week, hugs, Jayne xx

2 classes in 1 month!

Finished my second Kit and Clowder this month - you should see the state of the house! Eeek. I am officially the worst housewife ever. Sigh.
 Really recommend this class. I learnt such a lot and colouring the wings was so much fun.

Right, I may have to tackle the ironing now. And then the vacuuming. Then cleaning . . .  :-(

Finished at last :-)

I finally completed this Connie Fong mermaid which is a colouring class at Kit and Clowder. I kept going wrong and giving up - but with a little encouragement from the Clowdies I eventually finished.
We had crazy thunder last night - nobody else in the house woke but me. It was insanely loud - shook the house- I have no idea how everyone else slept through it!

Hugs, Jayne

Going Crackers!

I made this box for some crackers that I made for the release of this month's Hunkydory For the Love of Stamps release. This was using the Christmas Cuties set.
The problem now is that my little girl wants me to make her some crackers!
I've added a joke from the cracker stamp set in each cracker.

I've had to cut back on DT work as I'm struggling with M.E. Hopefully I'll turn a corner soon! Hugs, Jayne xxx

I'm entering this into:
Winter Wonderland - Use ribbon, lace or twine - I've used ribbon on the crackers
ABC Christmas Challenge - P, Q, R - R if for Red
As You Like It - Favourite Colour Combo - At the moment I'm making Christmas cards and Red and White is favourite at the moment because it looks fresh and cheery - essential for Christmas Cards.
