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 a big warm welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Also a big warn welcome to anyone that may just want to view my work.

Today is the start of the
  over at 
Scrappymo's blog HERE
The challenge runs from the 25th of the month till the end of the month, and as always it's anything goes as long as it's Christmas.
One entry per person to the challenge.
There is also a great prize you can win thanks to Maureen's generosity.

So here is my DT card I made for the challenge.

 This is a second angle view of the card.
I don't know about you but this last angle plays tricks with the eyes.
I cut my Z fold shape and then I cut my layers and stamped the background with a lovely stamp that was freebie from the Creative Stamping magazine this I did with Memento Lady Bug Ink by hand as the Misti just isn't right for background stamping I find.
I glittered the bottom half to look like snow.
I then stamped my Reindeer in the same ink with the Misti, and fussy cut them out to prance in the snow.
I stamped the sentiment with the Misti too.
The Merry and Bright die was a gift from Maureen for being one of her DT last year so I cut that out 5 times from Snippets, and glued it together to make it stand out.
The snowflakes die cuts I glittered, and they were part of a prize I won over at
 K and A  blog a short while ago so thank you so much Andrea for my lovely winnings.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I really do appreciate every visit, and comment.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

I love the way your card depicts the reindeer prancing across your Z fold card. I have not tried this fold,but this year I want to try some new ideas for card making...and fancy folds are one of them!

The red on white design is superb and the red pops off your page!

Thanks for being on my design team, Jenny.

Beautiful Z fold card Jenny, so striking in red and white! The stamped background is lovely and the reindeer look gorgeous prancing in all that glittery snow!
Hoping we won't have to prance about in too much glittery snow ourselves this week! Think I'll try to stay indoors until it's gone!
