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

Sorry I have not been about much again still having a few ongoing health issues.


As today is the 25th of the month its's time for the Rudolf Days Challenge over at 


The challenge runs till the end of the month and

One Entry Per person.

As always it's anything goes as long as it's a Christmas creation.

There is always a lovely prize for the winner too.

Making a card and entering can save you time when it gets closer to Christmas as well.

Here is my  DT cards I made this month.


The first card is an 8"x8" in size.

I used Anna Marie Christmas papers from and 8"x8" paper pad.

I cut out Anna Marie's holly die in glitter card and some more of her paper.

Added a flower arrangement, some foilage, and some pearls to the holly leaves.

The Red Rudolf is from my stash.

The second card is a 7"x5" size.

I used a Crafters Companion 3d embssing folder on gold card which was a freebie with my Anna Marie order.

She always puts a freebie with an order.

The sentiment is a Creative Expressions one given to me by Maureen.

The poinsettias I bought from Amazon and the holly leaves are a very old die which is a Sheena die.

I just inked through the die with gold pigment ink to give the veins of the leaf.

Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.

I really appreciate every visit and wonderful comment.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Sorry for the delay.

My google email on my blog is affected as well as that is where they are migrating the telus email system to!
