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.

If anyone is interested in joining our friendly team please email Wendy you will find her email on the side of our challenge blog.

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends and visitors.
I do hope you are having a wonderful weekend.

I saw on a friends blog as she was a GD for the Twelve Tags for Christmas so I thought I would join in this challenge.

So here is what I made last night so I could join the challenge.

I started by dabbing starlight paint on my tag to give it a lovely brown gold colour.
I then coloured my seam binding ribbon with the same starlight paint.
The bird and foliage at the bottom was part of a serviette that was given to me by Mary H with her wonderful candy I won a while ago.
I stamped the Noel which was a freebie stamp on to card that I had used gilding polish on this had to be done with Stazon Ink.
Leaves cut out of card made with starlight paint.

Thank you so much for your visit, and the wonderful comments you make.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.
