CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR WISHES






Hi and welcome to my blog all my craft loving
friends and visitors.
I do hope you all have had a really great Christmas, and are looking forward to a fab 
NEW YEAR.

Thank you for your wonderful comments through
out the this past year.
I very much appreciate every one that is made.

I have another design of my Christmas Calender
card to show you.
This shows how very versatile this digi image is
from the Pink Gem web site.

CLICK TO ENLARGE.


Now the inside.


This is an 8"x 8" size card.
I embossed the lovely green pearlised card with 
my embossing folder that came with my E Bosser.
I added a gold doily underneath the calender digi
image and some gold mirri corners.
Inside I die cut the gold mirri as I rand out of the
gold doilies.
I rather like the luxurious look of the green with
the gold.

Thank you again for your visit.
I do hope you are managing to get a little craft
slotted into your busy lives.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

before Christmas.

           MERRY CHRISTMAS and a

I have distressed the edges of the paper with
Fire Brick Distress Ink.

Thank you again for your visit and time.

May I say a big welcome to my newest follower,
and thank you for choosing to follow me. 
I do hope you come back and see what I'm up to

To be honest I hope it's not till after Christmas
now, especially with this other problem I have
had.

plentiful petals die.
Then I used some snippets of card, out of my
snippets box for the corners.

Sun Kissed Fleur Stamps and Die.

Thank you again for your  visit, and time,as I know time is very precious to all of us especially with Christmas looming.
