Just For You

Here in Australia, today was Mother's Day, so to all the Mums of
human, or fur babies I hope you all had a happy Mother's Day. 
My dear John took me to lunch which I thoroughly enjoyed.

Greeting me this morning was a cute multi-coloured email from our
son and little Granddaughter in London, along with them both singing
"Happy Mum & Grandmama's Day" to the tune of  "Happy Birthday", ending 
with a rousing, and giggly triple Hip Hip Hooray! It set me up for the day.

I would like to say welcome to my newest 'Follower', Stephanie S., and 
hope you enjoy your visits here.

This is another of the many cards I have made for Fat Cats Card Corner.
I always love the colour combo of pink and green.

The 'Just For You' die is so versatile. I cut 2 and layered them
for added dimension.

A closer look at the floral arrangement.

This next week is going to be incredibly busy, so I will say "goodnight" and try to get a good night's sleep.

Until next time, thank you for visiting,
Jennifer.  xx

Good Teacher

Here we are again, the second Wednesday of the month and you
know what that means - it is time for another challenge at
Words 2 Craft By. We believe our quote this month is 
by The Smith Family...
"The Influence of a Good Teacher Can Never Be Erased"

True words indeed. Although I am now in my late 60s, I still
think of some of my teachers (both in Primary and High School)
with great fondness, and for the clarity of their lessons.

My card is very simple, and I decided to make our quote the focus. For my
background paper I found a clipart image, then in my Corel Draw program
I cut and pasted multiple images, then printed them on cardstock.

The wonderful words of wisdom, printed on my computer.

Pencil Images - Freebie Clipart
Quote - Computer generated Kristen ITC Font (22pt)

For a chance to win a wonderful prize, pop over to Words 2 Craft By for some great inspiration by my teamies, then enter your own interpretation of our quote.

Until next time, thank you for visiting,
Jennifer.  xx

Purple Irises

I know, I know, I am becoming an increasingly bad blogger...I have
so many cards in my 'drafts', and I never seem to catch up. Most of
them have been made for Fat Cats Card Corner, and tonight's 
offering is one of those.

This card was made using a lovely die set by Marianne Creatables Design. It is such
a versatile die set, as you can see in some of my recent posts. The pretty image is
from a sheet of stickers I have had for so many years I had a lovely surprise
when I found them while looking for something else.

I cut two of the sentiment die and adhered them together
so it was a tad more dimensional.

It is now after midnight, so I am off to bed, as I have a very busy week ahead.

Until next time, thank you for visiting,
