Free on Friday 17 November 2017

Welcome to Free on Friday, my we are in mid November already!    I have been busy crafting with the grandchildren.  While they were doing their houses I was making a Christmas Eve box for my daughter.

Here are some of the finished houses.  I put one of those battery candles inside when they were finished.  They used stickers and gems to finish them off and Jessica made a Christmas tree.

At church last Sunday there were poppies cut out with a sign "Please decorate a poppy".

So I did :)

I took a photograph and sent it to the computer and made a digital stamp.  I didn't stop there, but you will have to wait until tomorrow to see the rest :)

This poppy is free if you would like it and here are a few more of the vintage flowers from last weeks post.

 Thank you for visiting - come back soon x

Saturday Surprise!

Good morning and welcome to Crafting With Jack.  I am making an early start this morning.  I have to take Belle's (my daughter's dog) temperature and my daughter does it at 7 o'clock.  Her puppies are due in a week and my daughter is keeping a chart of her temperature. Normal temperature is 37.5 - 38.5,  but 24 hours before birth the temperature drops significantly.   It helps to give an indication of when the puppies are going to arrive, as with everything else it's not a perfect method.  The sound of newly born puppies stirs my maternal heart strings like nothing else!  My husband says no more dogs :( but we do have four already!

Sunny, whose blog is called Rush Ranch has a lovely set of freebies.  Her work is always excellent so pop over and visit.  On her blog today she has a link to Printable and Inspirations.  This site does free printables for planners and more.  I downloaded a chart to use for checking off glasses of water.  I need to drink more water and this chart seemed a good idea.  The printable is for printing out a sheet of these, I thought I would put mine on the fridge to remind me. The link is here

A little Saturday surprise for you:

Have a great weekend and see you soon x

Free on Friday 10 November 2017

A warm welcome to Crafting with Jack.  Today is my darling daughter's birthday. As a surprise we booked her and her husband into the hotel they had their wedding reception in.  I  do have trouble keeping surprises quiet, so it was no surprise when yesterday I asked if she was packed!  My daughter looked at me and said "I am going somewhere am I?"  Oops!   So they have dropped off the dogs and have gone off for a lovely stay, we are picking up the children from school and it's a full house tonight :)

This image was from Vintage Printables.  I made some little flowers from this image.

Hope you have fun using these.  I will be back tomorrow :)  Take care x

Challenge at 2CraftyCritterCrazies

2CraftyCritterCrazies challenge starts 1st November, this is my contribution.  This delightful images is from Sparkle and Sprinkle and includes an option of a pre-coloured image.  So I created the background, added a few pumpkins and used PSE to create the frame.   Such a lovely image I didn't want to over embellish it.  Come and join us in November's challenge.

Witches night out!

I am so pleased with this.  It developed beautifully.  I wanted to enter the Gecko Galz challenge "Bump in the Night", but I couldn't get started.  I also had this General Stores images from the Outlawz Progressive challenge to do and I wasn't too sure how to do that.  It came together today.  The Witch, the Black Hat Society card, the Face and the background are all Gecko Galz images.  The bat was from Graphics Fairy, the skeleton from Dawn Hudson and I am not sure where the pumpkin image came from.

My picture is being entered in the Gecko Galz challenge and the Progressive freebie challenge at the Outlawz.

Free on Saturday Glossy frames

Hello again, here are the glossy frames I promised yesterday.  The first four are all png files, the last one a jpeg without the shadow, just in case someone can't use png files.  I would be always happy to repost png files as jpegs if you would prefer them.

Hope your day is going well and you have a lovely Sunday x

Free on Friday 27 October Papers and frames

A warm welcome to Free on Friday.  I have been working on these designs since breakfast this morning and the bit that takes me the longest is adding colour.  I have more changes of mind than leaves on the trees!  I started out with this scrap of vintage design :

From there I redid the motif and using PSE made a pattern.  These are A4 size.

Having made 3 colourways I had some fun and mixed them up a little.

Then I made a frame or two :)  These are 8 x 8 inches.

Finally I made some glossy frames, but as this post is image "heavy" I will post those tomorrow.  What do you think of these?
Have a great weekend, I am going to do tomorrows post straight away and schedule it.  Take care x
