I also lost my first Husband to the big C when I was quite young. I have 3 children and 3 stepchildren. 12 Grandchildren and 5 Great Granddaughters and 3 Great Grandsons. I have been card making for about 25 years. I have made things all my life as my Mum and Grand Mother taught me lots of hobbies. I have made my own clothes, knitted garments, hand embroidered items of clothing, and crocheted items too. I love to bake my own cakes as well.

Hi and good morning to all my wonderful talented blog friends
and visitors.
Well it's Sunday morning again doesn't the weeks go by so quick,
before we know it Christmas will be here again.
Wasn't it only a few months ago we celebrated it. lol.
THANK YOU soooooo much for your wonderful comments.
I am over the moon with everyone that is made about my cards.

I gave all your Birthday wishes to my Dad yesterday, and he says
to say a BIG THANK YOU to all of you for the good wishes.

I am now riding high on cloud nine at the moment, because I
was picked to be one of the top 3 on The Pink Gems Challenge,
for the girls. It must be my lucky week first my win on the blog
hop, and now to come one of the top 3.
Who know I may win the lottery tonight and be able to treat
everyone of you after all. lol.  Pigs might fly, but if you see
any flying tomorrow you will know I have won. lol.
Right that's enough of my banter and on to my card today.

Click on the photo to get a closer look.

Now the inside.

This card was made into an 8x8 card from an A3 white card
I coloured the card with Tea Dye Distress ink to give it a similar 
colour to the paper I used.
I matted it with red card and then I used a paper and image from
a Debbie Moore magazine I bought a few weeks ago.
There was some lovely quality papers and images in it, and also
a free CD excellent value for £5.
I put the image on a Grand Scolloped Oval, added some 
poinsettias that I had cut out at my sister in laws house, as I 
haven't got this die.
Put some Cosmic PVA Glue dots around the image.
I did however make a grave mistake when I made this, I put 
too much glitter on her wings so I covered most of it up with
a small Christmas spray.
I hope you like my effort, I think I'm in my red faze at the mo,
as I seem to be making lots of red things.
Thank you again for your precious time.
Have a wonderful crafty Sunday everyone.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
I would like to enter this in the following challenges.
Just keep on crafting. Anything goes.

Good Morning Jenny,
Once again another stunning card. love your Poinsettias.
Congratulations on you challenge, that`s was Fab!
Debbie Moore does give great value in these Magazines, had a look but her style is really not for me. How boring things would be if we all liked the same things.
Have a great day
