RUDOLF DAYS CHALLENGE ........MARCH 2018


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

Also a big warm welcome to anyone that just pops by to view my work.

Now I am really late with this entry into the Rudolf Days Challenge
 over at
The challenge ends tomorrow so I am just making it.
As always it's anything goes as long as it's Christmas and 
ONE ENTRY PER PERSON.
So here is what I made today.



The wreath image was on a Christmas card I was given this year, and I thought it was too nice to throw away so I cut around it and made a easel card with it.
I used lots of snippets to make the base of the easel, the stopper, and the centre greeting, and the pieces out of the base die cut.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
It is always appreciated very much.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

MOVING ALONG WITH THE TIMES DT..............FOOD AND OR DRINK


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

Also a big warm welcome to anyone that just pops in to look at what I have created.

Today starts a new challenge over at
It's the B Teams turn and the theme  chosen by our lovely Sue is Food and Drink.
 It is quite sad as she has had to stand down from our DT because of family reasons, and shall be missed by all of us as she was on the DT the longest.

I made my first card a few weeks ago for the challenge, and my Grandson's 14th Birthday.
The second I made quickly last night as we have a few DT members who are ill or can't manage to make something because of commitments.





The first card was made with a digi image, and is coloured with Promarkers.
I added glossy accents to their eyes and the tomato sauce.
The second card I made with Hunkydory card stock and images. 

Please pop over to the challenge blog to see my other teamies wonderful creations, and try and enter if you can.

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

BLACK AND WHITE 21st BIRTHDAY CARD


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

Also a big warm welcome to anyone who just pops by to have a look at my work.

Sorry I have been MIA for so long, but I had family staying for a while, and after they went my Granddaughter, and my Daughter took me to Wales to visit my sister who I hadn't seen for 2 years.
The downside was after the journeys
there and back my back has been playing me up so bad again. 
I suffer with Arthritis all over, and  in my spine too, also my hips are giving me so much trouble at the moment. 
Well enough of my woes I'm sure there are people worse off than me.

I have occasionally made some cards when I have had the time to do so, and feeling out of pain as I had some orders to fulfil, and lots of family Birthdays also.
Here is a card I made from my Grandson who turned 21 on St Patrick's Day.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
The 21st Birthday sentiment is a Digi Stamp Boutique download which was part of my winnings in a challenge.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I will try and get around to commenting, but things take me so long to do these days so it may take me a while.

Will be back with my MAWTT DT card tomorrow, and it's another Granson's card.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

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

Also a big warm welcome to anyone who just pops by to look at my work.

Decided to have a change around in my craft room, and boy oh boy I wished I hadn't started it, as my back is giving me jib now.

Felt slightly better today so I made this card quickly for the Allsorts Challenge which is celebrating International Ladies Day which was yesterday.



This is a 5"x7" tent style card I made.
The papers, and the image are from Graphic 45 Ladies Diary collection.
Added some lace, pearls, a bow, and flowers.

MOVING ALONG WITH THE TIMES....DT CARD RAINBOWS


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

Also a big warm welcome to anyone that looks in on my work.

Today is the start of a new challenge over at
It's the B Teams turn and Janis is our lovely host for this challenge, and she would like Rainbows on your entries please.
The Challenge runs from 1st of March to 6PM on the 14th of March.
Now this set me a challenge as I couldn't think of anything to use then I remembered I had some freebie stamps from a few months back with Rainbows on them.
So I made this Z Fold card, and was quite pleased with how it turned out.



I started by making my Z Fold shape by the way this is fast becoming one of my fave shapes to make.
Cut my matt layer, and then inked them with Worn Lipstick, Cracked Pistachio, Broken China, and Fossilized Amber DO Inks.
I stamped the raindrops randomly by hand with Memento London Fog Ink.
Then I stamped my images with Archival Black Ink, and coloured them with Derwent Water Colour Pencils, and fussy cut them out.
I decoupaged the yellow, and orange brolly to make it stand out a bit.

I do hope you can join us for this challenge as we love to see what you create for this theme.

I would like to enter this into the Allsorts Challenge things begining with B are Brolly, Bows, and Blue.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time as I know time is precious to all of us.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
