Finally a card for tonight

Well lots of chaos here this morning, still moving things around, Gordy has the cleaning bug thank God!! as I didn't have time today! we tried to give a good fully working tv away this morning to a charity, but they don't accept electrical things these days even if they do work! I don't know what is happening in this world lately, you can't give matresses and now no electricals, all I can say is the poor can't be as poor as we think they are, I remember times when I would have been delighted to accept a handout of a free tele!! never mind, something else to dump. 

Tonights card is Big Guy Grilling image by Mo Manning, I have paper pieced his shirt and trousers and coloured in the rest with copics, I used a stampin up image lovely as a tree for the background and stenciled the clouds.  Hope you enjoy!!!

There is a class this week

So sorry to be so late posting, I have had a very busy week, taking our Granddaughter to Melbourne for a few days, we had a great time even tho it was really wet and cold, we went to watch the Anzac Day parade, Chloe really enjoyed it, we also went to Science Works, and the Melbourne museum, which she loved as it was full of animals!

I haven't had time as yet to get a card ready for tonight, but hope to post one later, if not, don't worry there will be something happening this evening!! lol
Love Jenni xx

Apple Blossom

G'day everyone, what a busy week I seem to have had, I seem to have chased my tail all week and got absolutely knowhere so of course I am a little late again with this weeks card.  We are doing the Apple Blossom which is a new pattern from FPC, it comes together really well, we use balloon punches for this one and the Spellbinders label eight die as a backing.  Intoxicating by their very nature, apple blossoms are symbolic of heady love, peace, sensuality, and fertility. Apple blossoms (and trees) were honoured by the Ancient Celts and they would decorate their bedchambers with these blossoms to entice amorous nights, so maybe you will all be in for a treat next week?????? giggle!
I am entering this into a couple of challenges: flowers/mothers day Flower power

Basic Rose

Hey everyone, this weeks flower is the basic rose, most of us have done this before, but I have two new ladies joining us this week, one is a visitor from interstate and as they haven't really done FPC before we will start them easy with a simple flower, the roses were basically white but I coloured them with copics.  The fan is just made the old fashioned way by folding paper, very simple but looks impressive eh?

Looking forward to seeing you all
