Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.

The weather here in my part of Kent is very drab today, so I do hope that where ever you may live the weather is being kinder to you.

As it's the 25th of the month Happy Rudolf Day to everyone.
The Rudolf Challenge starts today over at 
Now as I am on the DT and it's my rest month I thought I still want to make my Christmas cards so I can be well ahead with them by the end of the year.

These are both 6"x6" size cards.
 On the first I ink dusted my sky, and made a few snow hills, and then I stamped my Rudolf which was a stamp I was given by Srappymo as a DT present for being on her DT last year.
I coloured him in with Derwnt pencils, and then added some glamour dust to the hills.
The second was made with one of the freebie stamps with the stamping magazine.
Coloured in with Promarkers, and then I added some Stickles Glitter glue.

Thank you so much for your visit, and the wonderful comments you make.
I really do appreciate them.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Hi and welcome to all my craft loving friends, and visitors.

Just popped in today to remind you all that the
 Rudolf Challenge starts over at
  on the 25th of the month.
This runs from the 25th to the end of the month, and it's a wonderful way to get some your Christmas cards made earlier than you usually would.
You can also win a lovely prize too.
Now as this month I have a rest from being on the design team  I thought I would make a couple of cards out of snippets so I could join my lovely friends in the Snippets Playground.

I won the lovely Scotty Dog Die on the Pixie's Snippets Playground a few months ago.
I had the idea for the design of the first card from a Christmas Gift Bag I received, and the second was the negative that was left when I die cut the Scotty Dog out of Snippets of holographic mirri card to glitter.

Thank you so much for your visit.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
I do hope you all had a good weekend.
We have been having some very glorious weather lately, and it's been so mild too.

I was asked by a neighbour to make a Birthday card for her friend so here is what I made her.
I seem to be in a green phase at the moment. lol.

This is a A5 size card.
The image of the Blue Tit is a Hunkydory one and also the bottom border is Hunkydory mirri  card stock too.
I used an Ultimate Crafts square doily die to sit the image on.
Then I added some of the mini Tattered Lace flowers die cuts.

Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.
I do appreciate your visit so much, and especially your wonderful comments.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
I do hope you are all having a good weekend, and for those of you that are not too well, I am sending Big Get Well Wishes your way.

Finished my card for the current Butterfly Challenge this afternoon, and I can also join the Allsorts Challenge as it's Anything Goes this week.

So here is what I came up with.

This is a 6"x6" size scalloped card.
I popped holes in each of the scallop's to accommodate the ribbon to be threaded through.
My background paper I created by swirling Memento Ink Bamboo Leaves onto white card to get the colour I wanted.
Then I added Cosmic Shimmer Enchanted Gold Gilding Polish to it to give a pearlised appearance.
I added a pierced flourish, and cut out some Butterflies, flowers, and fern die cuts from the left over card I made.

Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Hi and welcome to all my craft loving friends , and visitors.
Thank you for all get well wishes you are so kind.
Hopefully I will try and visit everyone eventually as I am trying to do commenting in stages throughout the days for a while.

So here is a card I made a couple of weeks ago.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The card stock and the image are from Hunkydory.
Placed a few die cuts under the images, and coloured my seam binding ribbon to match with Cracked Pistachio DI.
The Hummingbird Die cut inside is a Nbus one I have had for a while and I coloured it with Memento Inks.
Not too sure about this card as I think there are too many patterns on the front of the card.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
