Good Morning to all fellow crafters ... yep Im back again, get me LOL...

(dont understand my camera .. cos dont do techno rofl)... kept coming on....  does ANYONE else get the sparkly throw back from E15 &18?? how strange is that...   anyway... you got the best I could do..

Made this card a little while ago, to send to a lovely friend on a craft forum I belong to, who very kindly sent me loads and loads of beautiful quillings papers and bits and bobs as she found out I had just started doing a little bit of quilling, and was loving it, and as she ...... in her words 'didnt have the patience for it'.. she very kindly sent them to me..... so a big thank you to Marion.   (how kind of her was that?)

Just spent most of day sorting all my craft files on the computer... utter chaos comes to mind :), and realised I had not yet posted this one.

I have used a LOTV image, and oooh guess what... I can not remember what copics I used... rofl....  papers from stash.. so no help there either... LOL.   the copics look  like they might be low BV numbers... but Im not promising anything... sorry... but you know what Im like... plunge into the colouring.... and forget to write down what I am using... ... and in my defense on this one.... I did make it a couple of weeks ago ...

HOpe to be back with another card tomorrow, as soon as I can get a decent picture... the light is so bad here at moment it keeps auto flashing... and im getting a real bizare effect on my E18....

Dont forget to pop over to Bearly Mine Challenges as there is a brand new challenge starting today. The theme for this week is an easel card :)

And.... another fantastic fabulous piece of news ...... (for me anyway lol)... Donna at BearlyMine has asked  me to stay on a tad longer and be Guest designer for her and the teams..... stoked is the word.  So for a few more challenges...  you will see me and my cards popping up.... :)

Be back with you soon  hugs Jackie x Happy Crafting. x

Challenge card for DP2

Gosh get me, even entering a challenge now:)

Kisses by Mo Manning, another adorable image as always.

I have, as nearly always, used copics on this image, and gone for a slightly different approach on the card shape, it should fit nicely into a 7 x 5 envie :) (I hope lol)... thats the plan anyway, unless I got my measurements wrong lol)

Copics used... :)
Skin E01, 00,, 000, 11, 13, R20
Hair E18, 17, 15, 13 11.
Dress R81, 83, 85 89. G99, erm...... 62 and 69 (I think)... will check on the greens again. flowers, various.

Its a shame I cant take a decent photo, this took 6 attempts and still doesnt show that it is actually decoupaged... and when it did show it, it looked like it all out of alignment, so I gave up... rofl... will try better next time, but photography is obviously NOT my thing :)

I am entering this into the challenge over at DP2. again another first after 6 months of being awol from anything to do with card making.

Also.... I will have a little bit..  of news next week, I am REALLY excited by this... but going to keep you in suspenders for now  :) cos I can lol... but to say, I really am chuffed to bits... might only be something s mall to some, but it has made me a very happy girly :)

catch up with you all soon....  take care and have a wonderful day :) xx hugs Jackie

On a roll :)

Get me, yet another card :) Another stamp thats not seen the light of day for a very long time.

Have to say I am coming across a lot of stamps, and other bits, that I had totally forgotten I had, how bad is that. opps lol... but I feel like a kid in a toy shop,, not knowing what I going to find next and so much choice of what to play with next lol.

I have to admit I am rather enjoying opening up boxes, drawers etc lol... so easily pleased me.   Have not quite got to the stage of stroking papers yet thou rofl... but I am sure that will come. :)  I had however, forgotten just what a  mess I can make in my craft room just  making one card...  so I seem to spend half my time clearing up only to go and play again and create another mess... oh well... creative chaos I think its called hehehe.

Again no idea on what I used on this card, as made it a few days ago, but... still trying to keep in mind when I start  my next project to keep a note pad beside me to get used to writing down the copic numbers .. ... well I can hope rofl.

I do seem to be in a blue mode at the moment :) copic wise that is ... must sort that out.... :)

Hope everyone has a fabby Sunday...

hugs J xx

Betty's Birthday

Made this card for a dear friend of mine, a lady who is like a mum to me, Betty, aged 84, even managed to decoupage the bunnies and pots in places, (still got a lot to learn from Debby lol) but I tried,  Betty loves decoupage and blue, and as I had not got this stamp out for a while (ok or any others lol),  but thought it would be ideal to try and play with, cutting out bits. um... :)  anyway, she loved it, and thats all that matters, just as well her eye sight is 100% lol

papers again, no idea, as just trying to use up scraps from my overflowing boxes, as you can see.. big scaps too, as this is a5 card,  the letters are cut from some dies I managed to get hold of whilst I was in Spain, again no idea who made by, I am just a wealth of information... NOT... rofl.   I do promise that I will try and take more notice of what I am using as I go along, but for next few cards, all made in past week, I just been playing and making for those birthdays etc, I know coming up,  and wasnt thinking of re opening up my blog again at that time.

I have to admit to even..... swearing now.. buying, my daughters card in July !!! opps.

But if the blog gets a bit more active again, I will TRY, and take copic numbers down, at the least lol... did say TRY... lol...

have a fabby weekend everyone.. 

hopefully be back tomorrow with something else. :)

Friday 5 October 2012

Guess who's back :)

Well its been a lot longer than I anticipated, but, I have finally dragged my mojo back from its world cruise, and tied it back down in the craft room, and its under lock and key for a while now lol....

As you can see, a whole new look for my blog... (for now, until I remember how to do better things with it, its surprising how quickly one forgets the techno behind blogging lol).. senile dementia I s'pect lol 

I hope that craft land has been keeping well, along with my followers, of which I have probably lost most by now, ...

I h ave just started card making again, as the call for my copics was too much too bear, so, without further ado, here is a long over due card made by myself, hopefully, as time goes by, I will climb back aboard and have the blog back up and running as it used to be.

any lurkers? thank you for still being there.

Old image as you can see by Sarah Kay,  sentiment by Pink Gem, papers from stash and do not even think for one moment I remember the copic numbers.... rofl some things just never change.. :) 

love and hugs... Jackie
