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.

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
As I mentioned yesterday this month I am GD for the Rudolf Days Challenge over at 

The challenge runs from the 25th of the month to the end of the month.
As always it's anything goes as long as it's Christmas. 
There is always a wonderful prize to be won, and it means you get your Christmas cards made early.
So please pop over and take a look at the lovely creations my wonderful other Guest Designers have created.
So here is what I created this time around.

This is a 6.5"x7.5" size tent card.
I started by adding a matt of Silver Rainbow Mirri card.
I then cut out a frame in red card, and embossed it with a Crafters Companion 8"x8" size embossing folder which has lots of Christmas words in different fonts.
I then added die cuts with lovely stars on in white to the inside of the frame.
This die was a cheap purchase from
 E Bay and made in China.
My evening image came from the Internet, and I added some glitter to the snow parts, and created some snow droplets.
Lastly I added some holly leaves and pearls as berries.

Thank you so much for your visit and the wonderful comments you make.
They are sooooo! much appreciated.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

This is such a pretty scene and i love the way you "framed it".
We are both showing cards with frames, today!

Yours is so nice with the embossed words. I never thought of embossing a frame so will try that in the net few weeks as I like the look of it.
The die from china is very pretty...I have not bought from there yet...but certainly have been looking. My oh my, the prices are fabulous.

Than ks for being on my design team, Jenny!
