Hi and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

I do hope everyone is keeping well.
Can't seem to get my head around crafting lately, but I had to make a few family Birthday cards so that pushed me into the craft room.

I know she doesn't look at my blog so it's okay to show now.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
The papers are from a Paper Boutique pad.
Sorry the inside photo didn't come out very well.
Lace from my stash wooden bird cage from the works.
The large flower is from WOC.
The small ones are Tim Holtz.
Leaves I made.
Pearl corner cut from a large roll of pearls bought at the Range a couple of years ago in their sale.
Cut out some butterflies from the strip of paper used,  and then decoupaged them.

RUDOLF DAYS CHALLENGE DT CARD.............NOVEMBER 2019


Hi and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Getting towards the end of Baby Memory Book at last.
 Sometimes it's the designing, and what to do that holds one up while making it, but I need it for next week.

As it's the 25th of the month already, and time for the November 
over at Scrappymo's Blog.
It's the last one of this year.
As always it's anything goes as long as it's Christmas.
ONE ENTRY PER PERSON.
The challenge runs as always till the end of the month.
Here is 2 cards I made this month.

  


The first card is a 8"x8" size.
The 2nd one is a 6"x6" size.
The first one is a Creative Expressions Die.
I sprayed the die cut with glue, and added some C/E Iced Snow glitter to it.
The ombre glitter card for the background is from Hobbycraft.
The 2nd one is a die I bought from the works which I cut out twice then glued the bottom layer pieces back in place to give me a base.  

Looking forward to seeing your super creations this month.
Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
