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 all my craft loving friends, and visitors.
It's time for the B Teams turn at the
The lovely Jessie is our host for this fortnights challenge, and her theme is 
So we would like to see your creations with either leaves and or trees on them.
The challenge runs from Thursday 13/10/2016 till 6.00pm on Wednesday the 26/10/2016
We have no sponsors , but just love to see your wonderful creations, and there is a chance of being in the top 3 also.
So here is my DT card.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The card I used with the leaves on for the corners, and the centre is a old Hunkydory one.
I cut out a wreath style with the Spellbinders Grand Circles.
Then I cut out some leaf apertures on the wreath.
I used some gilding wax on the wreath which I don't like how it came out
I added some leaves, and some wooden owls rubbed with gilding wax also. 
Lastly I made a bow out of some green seam binding ribbon.

Thank you for you visit, and please take a look at my other lovely team mates creations, and we would love you to join us in this great challenge.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY. 

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.
