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 welcome to my blog all my very talented
friends, and visitors.
I would like to welcome my latest follower, and
thank you for choosing to follow me, and I do 
hope to see you here as often as you can 
manage it.
Well I can't believe it's Friday all ready, it seems
like at one moment it's Monday, and then the 
next it's Friday, what happened to all the days
in between. lol.
I have been busy preparing for my part in TCBH
on Monday.
So maybe that's why the days have flown by.  

Thank you for your continued support of my
blog, and the wonderful comments you make. 
So now it's time to join Erika   HERE  for the

The patterned poppy card and topper is a old
Hunkydory one.
I made the backing pattern behind the topper

by interlocking them and gluing them under the
I then added a double Parisian border and some
vintage seam binding ribbon, and a bow.

Thank you again for your visit.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
