I added Phil Martins Old Gold Gilding wax to the edges, and the edges of my doily and flower also.
On the bottom layer I used a mask and Phil Martins Chic Pumpkin sparkle texture paste.
I added my snippet of cotton crochet lace.
I inked my seam binding ribbon with RH/DI as well to give it the colour I wanted.
Finally I added a cabochon to the bow which I used gilding wax on too.

Today starts another Rudolf Challenge over at
This month I am one of the Guest Designers for this wonderful challenge.
As usual it is anything goes as long as it's a Christmas Creation.

The red spotted paper came with the Hunkydory Large Christmas Decoupage kit.
The musical paper is from a DCWV
Butterfly Garden paper pad. 
I inked the edges with Fired Brick DI.
I used part of the Choir boys decoupage from the kit, and dcoupaged them.
Then I made tag to go into the pocket I had created with the musical paper.
Lastly I made a poinsettia from Sizzex's Susan's Garden Poinsettia Die coloured it in with FBDI and Pine Needles DI for the leaves.
I then used some Gold Stickles in the centre of the leaves, and added some other die cut leaves to make up an arrangement.

SHARING MY OLDIE FOR FRIDAY / TODAY


Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
Well I know it's Saturday, but I need to share and Oldie for Friday with 
ERIKA HERE 
This is all just for fun, but a great way to show some of your older creations.
So here is mine for this week a Christmas card I made a few years ago. 


This is a 5"x5" size card.
I came up with the idea to make a Christmas tree with Christmas papers out of a sort of Tea Bag design.
Used a Special Mask embossed, but used the de-bossed side as I thought it looked like a Christmas design.
Added a few samll buttons to the tree.
Ran a red Pro-Marker round the edges of the card.

Thank you so much for your visit, and the wonderful comments you make.
I get really chuffed that you like what I have created.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

WHITE ON WHITE TAG CARD


Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
Thank you so much for your visit, and your precious time.
I very much appreciate every visit.

Today I have a white on white tag card for the current 
Butterfly Challenge.



This is 6"x4" in size.
I glued some lovely leafy cut outs cut from a Spellbinders die that a blog friend sent me ages ago.
Then I glued and glittered them.
Also found this gorgeous butterfly die cut that another blog friend sent me also some time ago, and I drew around it with a pencil on white snippet card and cut it out with scissors to back the butterfly.
Then I sprayed that with glue and glittered that too.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

BLACK/ WHITE AND LEMON CARD


Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
Thank you for all your get well wishes, I am still not feeling 100% but at least I have a bit more energy now, and am eating a little.
I have lost some weight too so that isn't a bad thing in my case.

Today I have a card I made with the Allsorts Challenge in mind, and I also used lots of Snippets too so I will be joining my playground friends with this as well.



This is a 6"x6" size card.
The design was inspired by Carol of the Dreamies  with a few of my own tweaks.
All the black and white card used was Snippets. 
The flowers were created with a very cheap stamp and die from the works.
The leaf stamp is a Inkylicious one.
The corners are a Tonic Die.
I made the mistake of putting the faux stitching round the edges, and wish I hadn't now.

Thank you so much for your visit, and time.
I very much appreciate it.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

A BOOK CARD


Hi and welcome to all my craft loving friends, and visitors.
Sorry I haven't been about much, but I caught a bug, and haven't been very well the last few days.
Not sure where I got it from, but it has made me feel very tired as well as giving me a temperature also.
I admired a book card on Kathy Clement's blog, HERE and decided to make one similar myself.
Mine isn't as good as Kathy's, but I enjoyed making this.
Sorry this is very picture heavy.








This is 8"x7" in size.
The lovely bird papers were a free download from C&C club wesite.
I started by covering my white book card with coloured paper in a aqua colour.
I then inked the edges with Peacock Feathers DI.
I added my other papers and also inked them.
Then I decorated it with bird images, and decoupaged the front bird.
Lastly I added gold gilding wax to the edges to give it and old look.

Thank you for your  visit, and time.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

OLDIE FOR FRIDAY


Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
Thank you so much for your visit.
It means a great deal to me that you choose to visit, and leave me such wonderful comments.

Well it's Friday yet again, and time to join ERIKA HERE 
with your Oldie for Friday.
This is all just for fun, but a wonderful way to show people some of your older work.
I haven't gone back very far for this one maybe a year or so.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
I used the Sue Wilson Embossing folder Heart Lattice on the debossed side.
I then cut out an aperture with the Sue Wilson Austrian Vienna Die.
Mounted it on double foam tape so I could set the other parts of the die in the recess in decending order.
I added some Tattered Lace Daisy die cuts, and a butterfly.
I also heat embossed my sentiment with Cosmic Shimmer Silver Lustre embossing powder.

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

SILVER WEDDING ANNIVERSARY CARD AND BOX


Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
Sorry I am back with another post today as I want to join in the Allsorts Challenge for this week, and tomorrow will be my post for the MAWTT DT.
 Oh my what a busy week this week.

So here is a Silver Wedding Anniversary card and box I made for my daughter, and her fiance's friends.




This is a 8"x8" size card and box I made to fit.
I cut out my doily and then used spray glue, and glittered it, but unfortunately the glue shows up slightly pink in the photo, but not on the actual card.
I cut out a silver linen backing in the same design for the matting.
Threaded some silver ribbon through the doily and added some lace daisies, and a lovely metal patterned heart that was given to me by one of my sister's jewellery making friends.
I then added some lace butterflies to the corners.
These can be bought at Cuddly Buddly Crafts.
The corners and the hearts around the box were cut on my ScanNcut.

Thank you for your visit, and time.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
May I say a big warm welcome to my newest follower, and thank you for choosing to press the button and follow me.
I hope to see you back as often as you can spare the time.

Well when I posted my last card I had 3 challenges in mind, but decided to make a different card for the 3rd challenge instead, as I won on the Pixies Snippet's Playground Challenge the other week and wanted to use my lovely embossing folder I won.




This is a 6.50" x6.50"size card.
I used some snippets of white card, and black card for the embossed layer.
I then embossed the middle section with more snippets again, and decoupaged it with some lace either side.
The black lace is the white coloured with a permanent marker.
The flower, and the leaves are also cut out of snippets, and I added Cosmic Shimmer Midnight Snow to the centre of the flower.
Finally I stamped one of the lovely sentiments that came with embossing folder, and cut it out with a circle die.

Thank you so much for your visit, and your precious time.

LAVENDER BIRTHDAY CARD


Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
Well last week went super fast as usual.
Is it time speeding up, or is it me slowing down so much. 
I think it's me slowing down .

Today I have a card made with 3 challenges in mind.




This is a 8"x7" size card.
The background papers were a download from Cuddly Buddly Crafts, and I thought they were lavender plants,but on a closer inspection I think they maybe bluebells.
The birds and the small postcards were a free download from C&C.
I distressed all the papers and Lavender card with scissors, and added Tea Die DI to the papers.
On the flowers I used some snippets of white card inked with Milled Lavender DI, but it doesn't show much on the photo.
I used stickles on the flowers and leaves, but that doesn't show much either.

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