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, and craft loving friends.

It's my blogs 6th Anniversary this month, and I can hardly believe how quick that time has gone.
To think I set up my blog amazes me as when I did it I was fairly new to computers.
So to celebrate my blog anniversary I have put lots of my followers who regularly visit, and make comments in a hat, and hubby drew a name out for me the name drawn out was Kath from the blog Plain and Simple.
So I would like to buy her a voucher of £25 where ever she would like me to buy it for her.
I will be doing similar draws with different vouchers throughout the remaining month.
So Kath if you let me know where you would like me to buy your voucher.

In the meantime here is a card I made for my Son who is a big fan of biscuits.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The biscuit die is a Tattered Lace one that comes with a charisma download.
I printed it off on photographic paper.
I think the biscuits look quite real don't you.
Die cut the Happy Birthday 4 times, and glued together to make it stand out more.
The son letters were snippets of letters cut out previously for other projects.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I always appreciate your visit and wonderful comments.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Hi Jenny. Had to look twice because wasn't sure of they were real biscuits lol! An awesome card and even though I've got charisma dies I've not used them yet lol. Will use them now and thanks for the tip you gave on my blog about the sparkle paints. Been very busy past week so not much blogging plus weather just exhausted me but hopefully get back into swing of things again. Hope you're well and pains not too much. By the way congrats on your 6th blogaversary!! Xx
